Green Bay Packers Training Camp will begin about a month from now. The Packers, as for every NFL team, will have some interesting rookies to keep an eye on. This is where they make their names known for a chance to make the 53-man roster.
Green Bay missed the playoffs a season ago. They hope they can get back there this season. Matt LaFleur will be the head coach of this football team once again this upcoming season for the fifth year in a row. With a new era at Lambeau Field this season, who are some of the rookies to watch during training camp?
Green Bay Packers Training Camp 2023: Rookies To Watch
The Green Bay Packers know that Jordan Love will be the starting quarterback this season in the NFL. What the fanbase needs to know is that the second quarterback behind him is capable in case Love gets injured. Sean Clifford is currently listed as the backup quarterback on their depth chart.
He was a fifth-round pick (149th) overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft. Clifford plays college football at Penn State. He was a very good college quarterback. It will be interesting to see how he plays throughout the Green Bay Packers Training Camp.
Outside of Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, there is a third wide receiver that will need to emerge for this offense. Jayden Reed is currently listed as the third wide receiver on the depth chart entering the Green Bay Packers Training Camp. Reed was a second-round pick (50th overall) in the 2023 NFL Draft out of Michigan State.
He played in 11 games last season for the Spartans, catching 55 passes for 636 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Reed needs to be a reliable slot receiver for quarterback Jordan Love.
A Quarterback’s best friend is a reliable tight end. Jordan Love will probably need to rely on rookie tight end Luke Musgrave a lot this season. It will be interesting to see how many times he will be targeted in drills on passing plays and how many times he is on the field in run situations during the Green Bay Packers Training Camp.
Musgrave was a second-round pick (42nd overall selection) in the 2023 NFL Draft out of Oregon State. The Green Bay Packers needed a tight end through the draft in the worst way this offseason. Despite playing in only two games during this past season at Oregon State, Musgrave caught 11 passes for 169 yards receiving and one touchdown, averaging 15.4 yards per catch.
