Lock: Aaron Rodgers.
Good bets: Graham Harrell.
Bubble: B.J. Coleman
Long shots: None.
Comment: There are three practices left in training camp and seven until the regular season begins. That's pretty late to be signing a veteran and have him be capable of contributing in the first couple weeks of the season. Coach Mike McCarthy continues to say Harrell is improving and is playing better than it appears, but he also continues to tap dance around the question of whether Harrell is definitely his No. 2 quarterback. Prediction (2): Rodgers and Harrell, with Coleman on the practice squad.
Good bets: RB Alex Green.
Comment: Benson cemented his place on the roster against Cincinnati. It seems unlikely the Packers would keep four halfbacks. Sure, they kept three fullbacks in 2009 and 2010 but there's not a lot of special teams value for Benson, Starks and Green. Green, a third-round pick last year, isn't going anywhere. That leaves Starks against Saine for the final spot. Saine (hamstring) will return to practice before Starks (turf toe), and Saine was running with the No. 1 units on kickoff return, kickoff and punt. Prediction (4): Benson, Green, Saine and Kuhn, with Tyler on the practice squad.
Comment: On Friday, we asked McCarthy whether he was happy with the progress made by Borel and Gurley. Many players make a big jump between Year 1 and Year 2 but that did not appear to be the case for those receivers. "That's a good question," he said. "I'd like to see them make a bigger jump. I think their injuries set them back, both. They both missed some time, they missed a game, so this will be an important game for both of those guys." Six receivers is a luxury, especially when that potential No. 6 receiver isn't a big part of special teams. Borel is having problems hanging onto the ball and Gurley has been invisible far too often for a player of his size. Prediction (5): Jennings, Nelson, Cobb, Driver and Jones, with the Packers hoping to retain Gurley and Borel for the practice squad but settling on Boykin and Moss.
Locks: Jermichael Finley.
Bubble: Andrew Quarless.
Comment: There doesn't appear to be much drama here. With the depth at tight end, what's the point of rushing back Quarless? Prediction (4): Finley, Williams, Crabtree and Taylor, with Quarless to PUP.
Good bets: None.
Comment: We cut the receivers from six to five and we increase the offensive line from nine to 10 by keeping Sherrod. If Sherrod's on the PUP list, he can't do a thing until after Week 6 and would have just three weeks before being activated. By keeping him on the roster, he could start practicing whenever he's healthy. With so much rust after last year's broken leg, the more practice time the better. This, of course, is assuming Sherrod is getting close to being healthy. Sherrod's health is the biggest mystery on the team. Or, maybe the biggest mystery is who plays left tackle should something happen to Newhouse. Wells was OK against Cincinnati but was routed for one sack. Datko wasn't ready even before his concussion. Sherrod obviously isn't ready, either. Really, this is a giant mess after the starters and Dietrich-Smith. Prediction (10): Newhouse, Lang, Saturday, Sitton, Bulaga, Dietrich-Smith, Wells, Datko, Sherrod and someone not on the roster, with Barclay on the practice squad.
Suspended: Mike Neal. Comment: Seven players are deserving of a roster spot but that's a lot of bodies at a position in which only two players are on the field most of the time. Prediction (6): Pickett, Raji, Worthy, Wilson, Daniels and Muir.
Good bets: ILB Jamari Lattimore.
Comment: The Packers could easily go with eight or nine offensive linemen, which would leave room for Bishop. This week, we've elevated Moses and Francois to locks. Lattimore and Jones are core players on special teams and make it, too. Manning could sneak on, too, since the Packers could as easily keep eight offensive linemen as they do 10. Prediction (9): Matthews, Perry, Moses, Walden, Jones, Hawk, Smith, Francois and Lattimore, with Manning on the practice squad.
Long shots: CB Otis Merrill.
Comment: If House's shoulder will keep him out for an extended period, the door is open for Ross, though most of his work comes in the slot and he'd be behind Woodson, Bush, Hayward and McMillian. The toughest cut will be at safety, where Jennings, Richardson and Levine likely are battling for the starting job and two spots on the roster. Prediction (10): Woodson, Williams, Hayward, Bush, Shields, House, Burnett, McMillian, Jennings and Levine, with Richarson to the practice squad and Ross claimed off waivers.
Good bets: None.
Long shots: None.
Comment: The Packers have about as good a trio as there is in the league. Prediction (3): Crosby, Masthay and Goode.
