Positional Analysis: Nose Tackle

This is the 10th of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason.

Players To Watch vs. SF

The Packers play their third preseason game tonight against the 49ers.

Ty Moves To Head Of Class

Ty Montgomery wasn’t the Packers’ first pick in the most recent draft, but he’s been the best pick after two weeks of training camp. With Family Night now a memory and the preseason opener just a day away, here’s our initial rookie report card: WR TY MONTGOMERY – I rolled my eyes when Packers scout
