Cornerback: Carrington Valentine
The cornerback squad is stepping up their game, putting on a real display of talent. One standout that’s catching everyone’s eye is Carrington Valentine, a seventh-round steal from the 2023 draft. This young gun is rapidly climbing the depth chart, already perched just below Jaire Alexander and Rasul Douglas. Valentine’s ascent could put the pressure on Eric Stokes once he’s back from injury.
The safety position is currently lacking that standout factor, as no player has managed to truly distinguish themselves from the rest of the group. It’s a rather underwhelming outcome, especially given the presence of several average contenders vying for just two starting positions. Unfortunately, this situation is shaping up to be a notable weak point for the 2023 Packers.
Specialist: Daniel Whelan
Upon Daniel Whelan’s arrival, he might have been seen as a lesser contender compared to fellow punter Pat O’Donnell. Nevertheless, Whelan is swiftly proving his mettle with his notably powerful leg and a display of impressive abilities. The ultimate decision could hinge on considering his long-term potential and his ability to execute the finer points, such as adeptly handling snaps.
