Projected Packers Depth Chart: Quarterback

The Packers will not have any sort of QB controversy this year. Aaron Rodgers is one of the best to ever sling it and will be the starting quarterback against the Bears week one. There is however going to be a battle for the backup position this year. It isn’t just going to be handed to Brett Hundley. Newly acquired Deshone Kizer from Cleveland looks to challenge Hundley for the number two job.

  1. Aaron Rodgers

For the second time last year, we had to endure life without Aaron Rodgers and it was absolutely awful. The Packers missed the playoffs for the first time in nearly a decade. As long as 12 is healthy, he’s going to put up MVP numbers, and the Packers will have a chance in January. I don’t think my heart can handle another year like last year.

  1. Brett Hundley

I know last year when Aaron Rodgers went down, some people were cautiously optimistic because Hundley had been in McCarthy’s system for three years. Well he looked anything but a guy that’s been in the same system is whole career. In 11 games last year, Hundley threw for just 1,836 yards with nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions. The Packers went 3-7. Hundley is the starter for the first preseason against the Titans, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see him at number three when the regular seasons starts in about a month.

  1. Deshone Kizer

The Packers official depth chart has Deshone Kizer at the number three quarterback spot. Personally I think a lot of that has to do with Kizer just getting here and not knowing the offense that well. I know he had a rough rookie season in Cleveland last year, but no one on that team had a good year. Last year was such a disaster in Cleveland; the Packers will essentially be getting a rookie in Kizer and will probably have to treat him as such. I think Kizer is more talented than Hundley, and if Mike McCarthy is as good with QB’s as people seem to think, they should have no issue grooming Kizer into the number two. It will be fun to follow these two during the preseason to see who wins the backup spot.

  1. Tim Boyle

Tim Boyle is an UDFA from Eastern Kentucky. He showed off a good arm and good pocket presence during the Packers family night practice last week. The odds are the Packers won’t keep four quarterbacks on the 53, so Boyle is going to have to leap over Hundley and or Kizer on the depth chart. Otherwise the Packers may try and get him on the practice squad.
