    Pre Season starts Saturday for the Pack and this is what I got for our roster. 53 players and I put some possible practice squad names down as well. Oh and I was rather bored. :D

    I came up with this from what I've seen in scrimmage and practices and from what the coaches seem to be doing.

    Offense
    QB: Brett Favre Aaron Rodgers Ingle Martin (R)
    RB: Samkon Gado Ahman Green Najeh Davenport Noah Herron
    FB: William Henderson Najeh Davenport Noah Herron
    WR: Donald Driver Rod Gardner Cory Rodgers (R)
    WR: Greg Jennings (R) Robert Ferguson Cory Rodgers (R)
    TE: Bubba Franks Donald Lee David Martin
    LT: Chad Clifton Junius Coston
    LG: Daryn Colledge (R) Tupe Peko
    C: Scott Wells Chris White
    RG: Jason Spitz (R) Junius Coston
    RT: Mark Tauscher Will Whitticker

    Defense
    DE: KGB Michael Montgomery
    DT: Ryan Pickett Corey Williams Colin Cole
    DT: Kendrick Allen Cullen Jenkins Johnny Jolley (R)
    DE: Aaron Kampman Kenny Peterson
    WLB: AJ Hawk Roy Manning
    MLB: Nick Barnett Abdul Hodge (R)
    SLB: Ben Taylor Brady Poppinga
    CB: Al Harris Mike Hawkins Will Blackmon (R)
    CB: Charles Woodson Ahmad Carroll Will Blackmon
    FS: Nick Collins Tyron Culver (R)
    SS: Marquand Manuel Marvel Underwood

    Special Teams
    K: Billy Cundiff
    P: Jon Ryan
    LS: Rob Davis
    KR: Cory Rodgers & Najeh Davenport
    PR: Charles Woodson Cory Rodgers Greg Jennings

    Possible Names for Practice Squad:
    WR: Ruvell Martin
    WR: Chad Lucas
    OL: Tony Moll (R)
    DE: Dave Tollefson (R)
    LB: Kurt Campbell
    C: Wayne Lucier

    Note: Gado is starting because he's getting the reps right now, until I see Green back healthy I have Gado starting

    I would agree with absolutely everything except i could see Ferguson or Gardner getting the chop and Ruvell Martin sneaking in.

    I like Noah Herron, but I can't see us carrying 4 HBs. Cutting him and taking Vonta Leach is way more likely.

    Yeah I had trouble with that but from what I've seen, Herron has looked good and Leach hasn't. McCarthy also wants a FB to be more athletic and have good hands. Leach is more of a power blocker. Davenport was drafted as a FB so he could play it. Herron could as well.

    I think Thompson is going to keep the 5 best backs. I could be wrong but that's just the feeling I'm getting.

    Zone blocking system has less emphasis on a blocking FB and that is what Leach is. It has more emphasis on catching out of the backfield so Henderson and one of the RBs would be better for it. I don't see Leach making it.

    If Herron makes it it will be as a HB. He will not play FB. Davenport is the only guy that could and he can't be relied on to stay healthy. I think Leach is a no-brainer

    I cant see us having 4 either. But I would rather we have Herron than Leach.

    If Leach could show that he can be a recieving threat out of the backfield I would agree that Leach is staying, but like I said, if I understand it right, the zone blocking scheme means that there isn't a need for a big blocking fullback as much as there is for a recieving fullback.
