OTAs are nearing their conclusion around the NFL, which means it's time to take a look at how the Green Bay Packers depth chart currently stands. The Packers aren't done making moves, they could still sign a player or two and there are roster cuts before the season, but this is a projection of how the depth chart currently looks.
Not every player on the roster will be listed since there's no real need to include UDFAs who won't make the team. Instead, think of this as an expanded two-deep depth chart. And, with fall camp yet to begin, much can and probably will change. With that in mind, here's the current Packer depth chart projection to make the 53-man roster:
I find it hard to believe that the Packers will keep both Kizer and Hundley on the roster and, since they traded for Kizer, Hundley is the guy who will be dealt/cut before the start of the season.
Montgomery has played well enough during his time in the backfield to have the starting spot locked up, but Jones and Williams performed well enough in Montgomery's absence last season to give the coaching staff confidence. This will be a three-back committee.
Green Bay will likely only keep one fullback on the roster and that's Ripkowski.
Equanimeous St. Brown
Green Bay's receiving core lacks depth after they parted with Jordy Nelson in the offseason but we know what ot expect from Cobb and Adams. Look for rookie Equanimeous St. Brown to become a factor as the season wears on.
Expect to see a lot of two and three tight end sets for the Packers this season. Jimmy Graham will be an excellent red zone target for Rodgers and essentially a third starting wide receiver, while both Lewis and Kendricks are reliable veterans.

Lane Taylor (LG)
Corey Linsley (C)
Justin McCray (RG)
Bryan Bulaga (RT)
This unit needs to keep Rodgers upright but they didn't make any huge additions to this group in the offseason. Still, though, they're a solid group.
Muhammad Wilkerson (LDE)
Kenny Clark (NT)
Mike Daniels (DT)
Wilkerson was another major - and rare - free agent signing for the Packers and they're hoping that decision pays dividends. Clark and Daniels are solid players but they need Wilkerson to produce.
Clay Matthews (LOLB)
Jake Ryan (LILB)
Blake Martinez (MLB)
Nick Perry (ROLB)
This may be Matthews' final year in Green Bay unless he is able to turn back the clock with his production. Ryan and Martinez are two promising inside linebackers.
Tramon Williams (LCB)
Kevin King (RCB)
Jaire Alexander (NB)
Josh Jones (SS)
HaHa Clinton-Dix (FS)
The Packers have attempted to overhaul this group in recent years and now have several exciting young players in the secondary. Expect rookies Alexander and Jackson to see a good deal of immediate playing time.

J.K. Scott (P)
