  • The Packers already have their top three wide receivers in place with Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams. Rookie Ty Montgomery has been impressive during camp and the Packers have lined him up all over the place. He could be a critical weapon during the regular season for the Packers, but now we have to see how he does in an actual game setting.

    One strike on him coming out of college was drops, and while he hasn’t dropped a whole lot in practice, we need to see how he does in a game.

    McCarthy expected a lot from Jeff Janis this offseason and so far, he’s been pretty quiet. If Janis wants to fight for that fifth, and potentially last, receiver spot, he needs to stand out in these preseason games. McCarthy might elect not to play Nelson, since he is coming off of an offseason injury, or Cobb since they are both crucial to the offense.

    Therefore, Janis will have plenty of opportunities to show off his skills. His first opportunity starts with the Patriots on Thursday night.

    The guy pushing Janis for that fifth spot is Myles White, who has been playing very well in training camp thus far. White has been on the Packers practice squad and regular season roster and is looking to become a permanent staple on the regular 53-man roster. It’s time for White to play as well in these preseason games as he has been in practice.
