3. Demetri Goodson has quietly impressed
The Packers didn’t hesitate to bring in new talent at the cornerback position after last season’s woes. But a familiar name has been making a name for himself during practices. Demetri Goodson was mentioned by Aaron Rodgers as a player whose mightily impressed during OTAs.
Although Goodson may not see the field exclusively as a cornerback, he’s in prime position to play as one of the Packers’ gunners on special teams. Green Bay allowed Jeff Janis to sign elsewhere earlier this offseason, which opens up the opportunity for a new No. 1 gunner – someone who runs down the field on punt coverage.
But Goodson doesn’t have his eyes set on just special teams. Clearly ,he wants to see time on the field at cornerback, where the pecking order is still undecided going into training camp. The odds may be against him, but Goodson will have plenty of time to prove his worth.
