Alex Green was the Packers No.1 running back this spring

According to Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Alex Green was the Packers starting running back throughout OTA’s and minicamp.

So even with Green’s future in Green Bay instantly endangered by the addition of a second-round pick (Eddie Lacy) and a fourth-rounder (Johnathan Franklin), he can breathe easy. His body, finally, responds to his brain.

 

Green Bay isn’t kicking Green to the curb, either. Through the team’s organized team activities and minicamp practices open to the media, the 2011 third-round pick started and finished as the No. 1 back.

Even though Green didn’t have a very good season in 2012 after coming off of ACL surgery, the Packers clearly believe in him and are willing to give a chance to prove himself.

    Alex Green lacks the vision to be a successful RB in the NFL. Sure he can contribute but trust and believe, Green will not be the answer to the Packers issues running the ball. How many times did we see Alex Green miss the hole or fail to make the cutback last season? How many times did we see him run straight up the rear end or Newhouse or Lang? On obvious passing downs, where they need to be sure Rodgers stays protected, that’s where Green will earn his check this season. At least until they feel safe with either Lacy or Franklin in there. Other wise it will be Lacy and Franklin with a dash of Harris mixed in.
