It's hard to find fault with most of the Green Bay Packers' roster, especially on offense. The big exception is at running back, where the team is doing a lot of hoping and projecting.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette calls it the "thinnest position group" on the team. We agree. Let's take a look.
Primary backups Alex Green and Brandon Saine: Green is a third-round pick from a year ago that is coming off reconstructive knee surgery. He hasn't practiced at all this summer and it's unclear if he'll be ready for camp. Saine looked passable in a third-down role last year, but his ceiling looks limited.
The depth is provided by undrafted running backs Marc Tyler and Du'ane Bennett: Neither player made a huge impression in OTAs, but it's hard for running backs to shine in non-contact practices. Fullback John Kuhn can also help out with carries.
If you are going to be thin anywhere, running back is not a bad option. They can be replaced. Still, this is not an overly promising group. If Starks gets hurt again, it looks particularly ugly.
