Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsWith veteran free agency behind us, the Green Bay Packers’ 90-man roster has taken shape. With eight draft picks in the fold, a handful of undrafted rookies under contract, and several new faces arriving via free agency, there are plenty of new faces to get to know on this offseason’s roster.Once again, Acme Packing Company has compiled a composite ranking of the 90-man roster, combining the rankings from several individual contributors. With the first group of players broken down on Monday, we move on from players 90-86 with the next group of five, players 85 through 81.Interestingly, while each player in yesterday’s group is an undrafted rookie, this next group consists entirely of players who have already spent a year in the NFL, with most of them landing on practice squads in their initial season or seasons in the league. Combined, they have spent nine seasons in the NFL, but only once has any of these players made an initial 53-man roster out of training camp.85: Tray Matthews, safetyThe Packers acquired Matthews late last season, snagging him for the final month of the season and signing him to a futures contract after the year concluded. Matthews, a 6-foot-1, 213-pound safety from Auburn, signed with the Vikings a year ago as an undrafted free agent before being waived at the end of training camp and later receiving an injury settlement. He had a cup of coffee with the Colts on their practice squad but spent a good portion of the year out of football.However, Matthews has decent speed and good burst for his size, as his RAS suggests. He also had an interception and either a forced fumble or fumble recovery in each of his four years in college football, and racked up some solid tackle numbers as well. He could challenge for a special teams slot and a deep spot on the depth chart with a good summer.84: Mike Tyson, safetyTyson is the newest Packer, claimed on waivers from the Houston Texans on Monday. APC elected to slot him in exactly where Matthew Eaton, the rookie wide receiver who was released to make room for Tyson, had been at the 84th spot.Tyson spent last season with the Houston Texans, earning a call-up from the practice squad and playing in ten games Randall Cobb Color Rush Jersey , largely on special teams. His ball skills (five interceptions as a senior at the University of Cincinnati) make him more of a candidate to help out as a deep safety than Matthews, but as with the other safety above, special teams would be his ticket onto the team.83: Deon Simon, defensive linemanThe Packers signed Simon, a big 6-foot-4, 332-pound nose tackle, to their practice squad twice last season. But would you believe that last year was actually his fourth season in the NFL?Somehow, Simon has been around the league since 2015, when the Jets drafted him in the seventh round. However, he only has 16 games of NFL roster experience, all coming in 2016 with New York. Interestingly, he remained with the Jets organization for a fourth training camp in 2018 before being released and landing briefly with the Titans prior to his stints in Green Bay.However, he’s essentially a big space-eater on the line, with little pass-rush ability to speak of. Given how often the Packers line up with two interior pass-rushing linemen, it’s tough to see him cracking the 53 come September.82: Anthony Coyle, offensive linemanCoyle, a product of Fordham University, signed on with the Houston Texans after their rookie minicamp a year ago but missed out on the 53-man roster after camp. Instead, the Packers scooped him up onto the practice squad in late September and kept him there through the remainder of the season. The college left tackle is listed at guard on the Packers’ roster.Unfortunately for Coyle, the return of Cole Madison and the drafting of Elgton Jenkins in round two puts a further squeeze on the depth players on the interior of the offensive line.81: Eric Cotton, defensive linemanCotton is an interesting prospect; despite being listed at a similar size to first-round draft pick Rashan Gary — Cotton is 6-foot-4 and 272 pounds while Gary is 6-foot-5 and 277 — he is classified as a defensive linemen while Gary got a linebacker designation.Cotton is no stranger to fluid positions, however. He played tight end for two years at Stanford, catching seven passes for 128 yards and a touchdown, before switching to the defensive line. There, he picked up three sacks in his lone year with significant playing time. Projecting as a sub-package interior rusher, it seems that bulking up this offseason in order to find a position on base downs would be critical for his roster chances this fall.Stay tuned on Wednesday as we keep the countdown going with players 80 through 76. When the Green Bay Packers open training camp in 2019, their roster should look significantly different than it does today. Several key players will come back off injured reserve https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Corey-Linsley-Jersey , a new draft class will inject some more youth and talent into the organization, and the team is sure to make some moves in free agency.However, there are a handful of players who are earning themselves bigger roles for next year as the team plays out the string on the 2018 season. Some of them, such as wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown, have gradually earned more and more playing time over the year and are angling for major roles next year. Others, such as defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster, are simply demonstrating that they deserve a chance to compete for a spot on next year’s opening 53-man roster.The snap totals for those two players show the value that the team places on them, however. With Kenny Clark out of the lineup on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, Lancaster played nearly 90 percent of the team’s snaps. Meanwhile, EQ has taken hold of the second outside receiver role from fellow rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling, out-snapping his teammate 2-to-1 on Sunday.Here’s a look at how playing time broke down in the Packers’ 24-17 loss at Soldier Field.OFFENSE (68 plays)QuarterbackAaron Rodgers 686.5 yards per attempt, multiple misses to open receivers on big-play opportunities, and the snapping of a 402-attempt streak without an interception say it all for Rodgers on Sunday. He also took five sacks in the game, several on third downs as he continued contributing to the Packers’ struggles.Running BacksJamaal Williams 59, Aaron Jones 7, FB Dan Vitale 4Jones had to leave the game early with a knee injury, and his availability for the final two games of the season is in doubt. He carried the football four times for just eight yards before leaving the game.Williams had some nice moments in relief of Jones, however. He gained 55 yards on 12 carries, adding the Packers’ only touchdown of the game, while totaling 42 yards on four receptions as well.Vitale’s only notable play was a whiff on a block that caused Williams to lose a few yards.Wide ReceiversDavante Adams 64, Randall Cobb 47, Equanimeous St. Brown 42, Jake Kumerow 21, Marquez Valdes-Scantling 21It’s now clear that St. Brown is running at the top of the young receiver group. He out-snapped MVS for the second straight week and saw three targets to MVS’ one.Adams was a star as usual in this game, catching eight of 13 targets for 119 yards. His full-season pace now puts him on track for 1,502 yards, and he needs to average 93 per game over the last two contests to hit that mark. Cobb caught just three passes on seven targets for 30 yards.Tight EndsJimmy Graham 47 Jaire Alexander Jersey , Marcedes Lewis 11, Lance Kendricks 9, Robert Tonyan 8While the Packers started the game with two tight ends, they stuck largely to 11 personnel afterwards. Graham had three catches for 32 yards while Kendricks added four receptions for 27 yards on his limited workload. The Packers also rarely used Kendricks in the backfield, only doing so on a handful of occasions.Offensive LinemenDavid Bakhtiari 68, Lane Taylor 68, Corey Linsley 68, Lucas Patrick 68, Jason Spriggs 68Patrick was a surprise starter, taking over for Justin McCray at right guard. It’s tough to break down his game, with Spriggs struggling against Khalil Mack for much of the game. In total, the Bears’ edge rushers shredded the Packers’ line; Mack had 2.5 sacks and Leonard Floyd had two, accounting for all but a half-sack of the five the Bears recorded.DEFENSE (60 plays)Defensive LinemenDean Lowry 53, Tyler Lancaster 51, Montravius Adams 16, Fadol Brown 12, James Looney 1Of all people, it was Lancaster who led the Packers in tackles in this game with seven. He clearly has taken over the top reserve role, as Adams cannot seem to crack the lineup. Lancaster usually does a good job holding his ground at the point of attack and has active hands, and he absolutely should have a spot on the offseason roster and a chance to win a roster spot in training camp.Lowry had a pair of tackles and a fumble recovery, while Brown had a couple of big back-to-back stops, first on a third-down run and then on the Bears’ fake punt attempt. Adams did put in a good effort in his limited snaps, with three tackles and a hit on quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.Outside LinebackersKyler Fackrell 51, Clay Matthews 49, Reggie Gilbert 21Matthews had the Packers’ only sack in this game, bringing down Trubisky late in the fourth quarter and forcing him to fumble the football. Unfortunately the Bears recovered the football, though they fumbled later on in the drive. Fackrell had one solo tackle and a pair of assists Lane Taylor Color Rush Jersey , while Gilbert had one solo stop and a pass deflection.Inside LinebackersBlake Martinez 60, Antonio Morrison 8Martinez had a minuscule (by his standards) four tackles in this game. The Packers used a combination of two safeties, Josh Jones and Eddie Pleasant, as Nitro linebackers, however, leading to minimal snaps for Morrison and nothing on defense for rookie Oren Burks.SafetiesTramon Williams 60, Josh Jones 48, Eddie Pleasant 31, Kentrell Brice 18Jones racked up six tackles in this game, including one for loss, and added a pass defense as well. As mentioned above, he played some linebacker, splitting time with Pleasant in that spot. The newcomer also had a tackle for loss, which was one of his two tackles on the day, but he struggled in coverage.Williams added four tackles on the back end while Brice had two in limited playing time.CornerbacksJaire Alexander 60, Bashaud Breeland 53, Josh Jackson 40, Tony Brown 28Breeland missed practice all week, but he played most of the game with solid success; he had one tackle, which went for a loss on a beautiful read from the slot against the run, and added a pass breakup. Alexander had three tackles while Jackson had five and Brown two.The Bears did little damage down the field — their biggest pass play was a 30-yard gain by Allen Robinson. That was a quick pass that Alexander read well, jumping the route, but he was unable to get the football and his gamble allowed Robinson to pick up a huge batch of yardage after the catch.
