As all 32 teams in the NFL are in the midst of selecting their 53-man roster, the Packers have completed the process.

The Packers continued to make roster moves on Sunday as they placed offensive lineman, Don Barclay, on IR to clear the space for linebacker Ahmad Brooks.

*All players in bold made the roster.

*All players in italics have been released.

QB: At quarterback, the team will, of course, have Aaron Rodgers, as well as Brett Hundley. They released both Joe Callahan and Taysom Hill.

RB: For the running back position, Ty Montgomery has been penciled in as the starter. The former wide receiver will be joined on the roster with Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, Devante Mays. Kalif Phillips was cut.

WR: In a competitive wide receiving core, there were no surprises. Rodgers will have a slew of weapons with Jordy Nelson, Devante Adams, Randall Cobb, Jeff Janis, and Trevor Davis. The talented Geronimo Allison was placed on the reserve/suspended list. DeAngelo Yancey, Michael Clark, Malachi Dupre, Max McCaffrey, Montay Crockett were released. However, Yancey and Clark have been signed to the practice squad.

TE: Martellus Bennett, signed in free agency, will lead a tight end core of three along with Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers. Aaron Peck and Emanuel Byrd were cut.

OL: Big questions surround the Packers offensive line with T.J. Lang now a Lion. Starting it will be David Bakhtiari, Bryan Bulaga (depending on his injury), Lane Taylor, Jahri Evans, and Corey Linsley. Also making the team are Jason Spriggs, Kyle Murphy, Lucas Patrick, Justin McCray. The ones released include Thomas Evans, Geoff Gray, Adam Pankey, Kofi Amichia, Robert Leff.

DL: Calvin Heurtelou, Izaah Lunsford, and Brian Price did not make the roster. While Mike Daniels, Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry, Ricky Jean Francois, Christian Ringo, Montravius Adams can celebrate.

LB: Ahmad Brooks was signed this week after being cut by San Francisco, he will join a shaky group made up of Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Jayrone Elliott, Kyler Fackrell, Jake Ryan, Blake Martinez, Joe Thomas.

CB: Davon House, Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, Kevin King, Josh Hawkins, LaDarius Gunter, Lenzy Pipkins were the corners to make the roster. This will be the group to keep an eye on after being the biggest black eye a season ago. Daquan Holmes fell short of the 53-man team.

S: Safety should be a strong area for the Packers this year. With a core of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Morgan Burnett, Josh Jones, Kentrell Brice, Marwin Evans. Two were cut: Aaron Taylor and Jermaine Whitehead.

ST: Mason Crosby, Justin Vogel, Brett Goode will make up the team.
