Packers Running Game Ranked Dead Last by Scouts Inc.

MorencyA recent ranking of running games by Scouts Inc. is not too kind to what the Packers look like they will run out in 2007. The team for sure has a dearth of quality at the position, and the ranking tells as much about the team. Below is their thoughts on the Packers running attack heading into 2007:

32. Green Bay Packers

Aside from whether QB Brett Favre would retire, the biggest offseason question for the Packers was at running back. After a full offseason, they enter training camp with the same questions at running back. Ahman Green left for Houston via free agency. Green’s backups — Vernand Morency and Noah Herron — saw significant time last season, but neither shows the burst or run instincts to be counted on as a full-time starter. The team did add two running backs in the draft. Brandon Jackson was added in the second round and DeShawn Wynn in the seventh. Look for Jackson to be given every opportunity to win the job in the preseason. The Packers likely will be a running back-by-committee team that rides the hot hand from week to week.
