The first preseason games for teams expect the starters not to go too deep into the game. Usually first stringers will play a series or two. Depth in the playmaker position is important to handicap. Aaron Rodgers will start at quarterback for the Packers. Backup Brett Hundley out of UCLA is in his second season with the team. Hundley saw no regular season snaps in 2015 but passed for the most yardage of any quarterback in the preseason last year. Rookie Marquise Williams is trying to earn a roster spot under center. He played his college football at North Carolina and is a running style quarterback who had success moving the football and driving his offense for touchdowns in his years with the Tar Heels. Rookie Joe Callahan is an undersized quarterback at 6’1” out of small college Wesley who is fourth on the depth chart. The running back position is one to look in camp as the team is looking for more production out of Eddie Lacy who rushed for 4.1 yards a carry a season ago.

Indianapolis returns with Andrew Luck under center after signing a monster contract in the offseason. Luck will see limited action in the opener. The Colts have an experienced backup in former Wisconsin Badger Scott Tolzien who enters his sixth season in the league. He spent the last two years with the Packers and has seen two starts in his pro career coming in the 2013 season. Former Miami Hurricane Stephen Morris has spent the last two seasons on NFL practice squads and is the third quarterback in the Colts camp.
