How many different OL combinations will we see from the Green Bay Packers?

The competition along the offensive line this summer is going to be fierce as Matt LaFleur searches for his best five players, as he is often quick to point out.

One of the reasons why the competition will be so intense this summer is because of the versatility of this unit, and there may also be a few spots up for grabs, specifically along the right side at guard and tackle–at least until Elgton Jenkins is fully healthy.

Jon Runyan can play either guard position, while Josh Myers and Jake Hanson can line up at both center and guard. Cole Van Lanen, Sean Rhyan, and Royce Newman can each play guard or tackle, with Zach Tom able to compete at all five positions if needed. Meanwhile, Yosh Nijman can line up at both tackle spots, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see rookie Rasheed Walker taking some snaps at guard either.

You get the idea, the number of offensive line combinations that we could see this summer seems endless, and I fully expect LaFleur and Adam Stenavich to do plenty of mixing and matching as he searches for his starting five for the 2022 season.
