Eric Stokes has experienced a turbulent start to his NFL career, oscillating between playing a major role and finding himself buried on the depth chart.
Currently, Stokes finds himself on the lower end of the depth chart as he focuses on recovering from last season’s injury. The Packers initially tried to shift Rasul Douglas to the slot cornerback position in order to create an opening for Stokes on the outside. However, it became evident that Douglas thrives best in an outside role, which has solidified his position there.
Once Stokes is fully recovered and ready to return, he will face the challenge of proving himself worthy of being back on the field. This is a task that the third-year professional has become accustomed to in his NFL journey so far.
