2. Mysterious Packers Heading Into Training Camp: Keisean Nixon
While Keisean Nixon has made a name for himself as a dynamic kick returner, his coverage abilities are now coming into focus. With Stokes still recovering from an injury, Nixon has a prime opportunity to solidify his role as Green Bay’s starting slot corner.
During Weeks 12, 13, and 15 of the previous season, Nixon saw increased playing time in the slot and demonstrated his potential as a capable coverage defender. He showcased good instincts, agility, and the ability to stick with receivers in tight spaces. Now, the question remains: Can Nixon transition from being primarily a return specialist to becoming a valuable asset on the defensive side of the ball?
