Packers Have Youthful Roster Again This Year



With a number of veterans departing the Green Bay Packers roster in the offseason like Charles Woodson and Donald Driver, this season’s roster is even younger than last. The Packers entered training camp with an 88-man roster that is composed of 44 offensive players, 40 defensive players and four specialists.

Of the 88 players on Green Bay’s roster, 44 of them (50.0 percent) were drafted by the Packers. With 25 non-drafted free agents on the roster having started their NFL careers with Green Bay, 69 of the 88 players (78.4 percent) began their pro careers with the Packers.

Nearly two-thirds of the players (56 of 88, 63.6 percent) on Green Bay’s roster entered the league as a sixth-round or seventh-round pick or as an undrafted player. Almost half of the players (43 of 88, 48.9 percent) on the roster were not drafted. Only 19 of the 88 players on the roster (21.6 percent) were selected in the first three rounds of the draft.

Of the 88 players on the roster, 80 of them (90.9 percent) are 28 years old or younger (as of Aug. 1) and 53 players (60.2 percent) are 24 years old or younger.
