THINGS TO WATCH
- How much pass rush will rookie DE Jones give to the line?

- How will OLB Perry do returning from an injury?
- Who will replace ILB Bishop to solidify the middle?
- Can cornerback Hyde make an impact to make roster and until CB Hayward returns?
- How will QB Young do? Packers need to determine whether he can be an upgrade over backups Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman.
- With injured RB Lacy out with tight hamstring, who will stand out? Green? Starks? Franklin?
- How good do receivers Boykin and Ross look to be effective receivers with the Packers thin at the position? How about the TE competition for final roster?
- Can rookie LT Dave Bahktiari do an effective job replacing LT Bulaga?
- How goes the kicking competiton between K Crosby and challenger K Tavecchio who can’t match Crosby’s leg strength but may be more accurate.
- Can KR/WR Ross do the job or will WR Cobb continue to do the return game?
