Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and James Jones often point out there's no set No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3 receiver on the Green Bay Packers' depth chart.

There’s far less certainty surrounding the fourth, fifth and even sixth receiver on the roster, but for different reasons.

What’s to be made of those latter classifications ultimately lies in the hands of Jarrett Boykin, Jeremy Ross and the young receivers vying to join the team’s high-octane passing game when the 53-man roster is decided later this month.

Rookies such as Charles Johnson, Tyrone Walker and Myles White have had their moments through the first week of camp, but Boykin and Ross remain the early favorites to assume the spots vacated by cornerstones Greg Jennings and Donald Driver.


Watching the battle progress for the back up WR positions will be one of the more interesting items in camp.

Originally I expected Boykin and Johnson to get the 4 & 5 slots Ross the 6 if they keep that many. Now who knows. A dropped pass or a pulled hammy could be the difference between making the team and packing the bags and moving on. on the other hand a KO returned for a TD could cement a place on the time like Desmond Howard did.

If any of these receivers other than Cobb can keep their hands on the ball fielding kicks then I think that will help solidify their spot. Silverstein wrote about all the muffs today. Golden opportunity for one of those young guys to grab.
