The Packers enter the season looking to see that their offensive line is healthy and their linebacking corps has been improved.

Green Bay was the second-worst team in the league against the run last season and has made the unusual move of going to smaller, speedier linebackers. Hardy Nickerson and Nate Wayne were let go and will be replaced by rookie Nick Barnett and free agent Hannibal Navies. If Barnett proves in the preseason that he's not big enough to hold down the middle, he'll swap spots with weakside backer Na'ill Diggs.

The Packers front office always does a good job finding talented young players to develop, so there is always competition in training camp. The highest profile position battle is to see who will play opposite Donald Driver as the team's second wide receiver.
