The Packers have a lot of talented running backs on their roster right now, but not all of them will make their final 53-man roster.
According to ESPN.com, Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt has been very impressed with James Starks.
Van Pelt called Starks’ camp so far “outstanding” and said the 6-foot-2, 218-pound fourth-year pro is running “extremely hard, violent.” He noted that Starks is making better reads and has been more patient on the outside zone runs, where the back needs to stretch the defense before making a cut. It’s a play coach Mike McCarthy often calls.
Starks looked great back in 2010, but has been hobbled by numerous injuries since.
