1. Who will be the primary backup quarterback?
Like it or not, the chances are high the Packers will end up having to use their backup quarterback at some point next season. As Aaron Rodgers gets older and continues healing from his second broken collarbone, the likelihood he suffers another injury (hopefully, very minor) continue to increase.
If that happens, Green Bay at least has some options behind him. Last year’s Rodgers’ replacement, Brett Hundley, was not nearly as impressive as anticipated. He struggled to move the offense at all and left everyone wanting more.
Thus, Gutekunst traded former first-round pick Damarious Randall to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for Deshone Kizer. Kizer started 15 games for the Browns last season, going 0-15 during his rookie season. However, he flashed some potential and will challenge Hundley for the primary backup role.
Some believe Kizer is even the favorite for the role and may have already been handed those reigns. Regardless, this is an important spot on the depth chart for the Packers to figure out. Their hope is the two young quarterbacks will be challenged by one another and it will bring out a fierce competition.
