The Green Bay Packers are fresh off a surprising draft, where it seems like they are switching course after being just one game shy of the Super Bowl in Matt LaFleur's first season as a head coach. With lot of change in the "Frozen Tundra," there seem to be no starting jobs that are fully safe.
With that in mind, these are the three Packers most in danger of losing their starting jobs during the 2020 NFL season.
1. Devin Funchess, WR
The Packers' "big" move to address the poor wide receiver group this offseason was signing Devin Funchess to a one-year prove-it deal. This is because the has been injured or has played poorly in nearly all recent memory of him in the NFL. The Packers also possibly didn't make a larger wide receiver signing because they had Equanimeous St. Brown coming back from injury. St. Brown is a length wide receiver that was a raw prospected with a lot of potential when he was drafted.
2. Lane Taylor, OG
Lane Taylor was put on IR last season in September, after suffering a bicep injury. He is back this year and is expected to re-enter the starting lineup. However, the leash may be short for Taylor, This is because then-rookie Elgton Jenkins filled in for Taylor nicely, and he may take the starting job back, especially with the Packers taking a run-first approach.
3. Kevin King, CB
This is a make-or-break season for Kevin King. While it was not talked about much last season, King was overall terrible in coverage for Green Bay, allowing 864 yards, which was the fourth-most in the league. He looked lost at times, giving up huge chunks of yards. This is shown by the average depth of target (aDot) on him being 12.6 yards and him giving up 10.2 yards per target. While the Packers have decided to not address this need yet, they could make the switch to just about anyone if King continues his current level of play.
