Here's what to watch for in Packers training camp and beyond

Questions linger from the offseason as the Green Bay Packers enter training camp this week, from the run game to rookie production to Mason Crosby's status at kicker. Here's a look at some of the biggest questions facing the team heading into training camp and the 2019 season, as compiled by Jason Perone of Cheesehead TV.

Can this running back group shoulder the load?

LaFleur's offense runs the ball a lot. Aaron Jones has nothing short of star potential - when he's healthy. Jamaal Williams has stepped in as the featured back when Jones went down, but he seems best suited as a complementary piece. Rookie Dexter Williams is a late-rounder and a big unknown right now. 

How much can the Packers rookies offer right away?

Rashan Gary will play but he doesn't have to be any type of defensive savior with the acquisitions of Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith. Jace Sternberger is in a situation similar to Gary in that he has some veteran help in front of him. Darnell Savage has it all right in front of him. Adrian Amos was acquired to start but the other spot is wide open with the departure of Kentrell Brice. Elgton Jenkins should get worked in as the season progresses. The others should all take on depth roles and mostly special teams.  

Is the cornerback position too thin?

Is Kevin King healthy? Can he stay healthy? That's a linchpin to this conversation. This is an area where the Packers will likely be scouring the waiver wire during training camp and preseason.

Is Mason Crosby OK?

Crosby had a rough 2018, by his standards. He missed seven field goal attempts and two extra points. There will be some competition for Crosby in training camp, but it's hard to say how the new regime will approach it. 

Can Matt LaFleur & Aaron Rodgers guide this team back to the playoffs?

Matt LaFleur was hired to reinvent the offense and help Aaron Rodgers return more to form.  The last rookie head coach in Green Bay was Mike McCarthy in 2006 and he inherited a 4-12 team. After a 4-8 start, the team won their last four games to finish 8-8 The following season, they were in the NFC championship game.
