    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Aaron Rodgers is a major figure in Jared Goff’s

    earliest football memories.While Goff was a little kid growing up in Marin County Womens Lane Taylor Jersey , his father took him to games at Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium, where he watched Rodgers’ collegiate brilliance for California.That kid also got one of his first lessons in professional sports heartbreak when his favorite NFL team — the San Francisco 49ers — used the No. 1 pick in the 2005 draft on Alex Smith instead of Rodgers.“Yeah, 10-year-old Jared was very upset when he found out they didn’t take Aaron,” Goff said.Once he grew up and filled out, Goff followed Rodgers’ path to Berkeley. And 3˝ years after Goff became the No. 1 pick that Rodgers never was, they’ll face each other for the first time when Goff’s unbeaten Los Angeles Rams (7-0) host Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers (3-2-1) on Sunday.A significant NFC showdown between the NFL’s last unbeaten team and a perennial power is also a meeting of a rising quarterback star and one of his heroes, still in his prime. Both Golden Bears are excited by the opportunity.“I’ve followed his whole career,” Goff said. “Big fan of his. There are times where we’re watching him play against the defense (the Rams are supposed to be scouting), and you get stuck on watching him. He’s a great player. I’ve got a lot of respect for him, and it’ll be fun to get a chance to go against him.”The feeling is mutual for the 34-year-old Rodgers as he leads the Packers back to the venerable Coliseum, where their storied franchise won the first Super Bowl in 1967.“I’ve gotten to know Jared a little bit over the last couple years, and being a Cal guy, obviously I’m pulling for him,” Rodgers said.“And he’s played really well. They’ve put a lot on his plate with (checkdowns) and stuff at the line of scrimmage, and he does a good job with that. He’s an accurate passer. He’s making good throws. He’s got some weapons to throw to, but he’s been extremely accurate and efficient with the ball. That’s what you need with the quarterback.”Rodgers already has his own Coliseum memories: He tied an NCAA record by completing his first 23 passes for Cal against USC in their famous meeting in 2004, but the Trojans hung on for a 23-17 victory.More things to watch in the Packers’ first appearance at the Coliseum since before the NFL left LA in 1994:LONG ODDSThe Packers are coming off their bye week, but they opened as 8˝-point underdogs for this matchup against the powerhouse Rams, who are 18-5 in the regular season since coach Sean McVay took over.That’s the biggest betting disadvantage of Rodgers’ career as Green Bay’s starter, but nobody doubts Rodgers’ ability to overcome it — including the Rams.“He’s got the ball placement, he’s got the arm, he’s got the competitive (attitude), he’s got the heart,” said Rams cornerback Marcus Peters http://www.packerslockerroom.com/aut...atthews-jersey , who also grew up in the Bay Area watching Rodgers at Cal. “Every time (Rodgers is) on that field for the Packers, they’ve got a good chance to win it.”START ME UPThe Rams are off to their first 7-0 start since 1985. The franchise hasn’t started 8-0 since 1969, when NFL MVP Roman Gabriel led Los Angeles to an 11-0 start followed by four straight losses.CLAY’S HOMECOMINGPackers linebacker Clay Matthews grew up in the Los Angeles suburbs, and he walked on at USC before becoming a star and a first-round NFL pick in 2009. He is playing at the venerable Coliseum for the first time since college.So is Nick Perry, who played at USC from 2009-11. “It’ll be cool to go back out there, obviously,” Matthews said. “It will be different being in the opposing locker room.”GURLEY’S GAMEGoff aside, Green Bay’s defense must figure out how to slow running back Todd Gurley, who is putting up even more impressive numbers than he managed as the AP’s Offensive Player of the Year in 2017. Gurley leads the league with 88 points, 686 yards rushing, 144 carries and 956 yards from scrimmage. The Packers’ run defense is ranked 22nd in the league, giving up a hefty 4.5 yards per carry.SHIELDS SIGHTINGCornerback Sam Shields made the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2010, and he was a steady defensive contributor until he incurred his fourth concussion in the 2016 season opener.After nearly two years out of football, he joined the Rams this season . Green Bay cornerback Tramon Williams says he consulted with Shields regularly about his health during his absence.“At one point I was on the bandwagon with him, like, ‘Man, you need to call it quits,'” Williams said. “And on the other side, after he had some time off, his mind is cleared and he’s back mentally ready to go.” There’s a common theme among this next group of players: great athletic ability that must be harnessed." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMasthead Community GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers 90-man roster ranking, 60-56: Exceptional athletes look to grow into NFL rolesDenny Medley-USA TODAY SportsAPC’s countdown of the Green Bay Packers’ 90-man roster continues on this afternoon, as the numbers click over to players 60 through 56.This next group of five players all were drafted into the NFL over the past few years, with three of them being Packers seventh-round picks in 2018 or 2019. Four of the five finished last season on the active roster, while the fifth was just selected in last April’s NFL Draft. Athleticism that needs refining is a common thread Geronimo Allison Jersey , however; most of these players have excellent physical tools but have yet to make a significant mark in the NFL. If they take to the Packers’ playbooks this offseason and develop the mental side of the game, each of these players could be suiting up in green and gold on Sundays this fall.60: Natrell Jamerson, cornerbackAfter starting his college career as a receiver, Jamerson switched to the defensive backfield for the Wisconsin Badgers while maintaining his role as a kickoff return man and key special teams player. First starting as a slot corner, Jamerson eventually found the starting lineup as a senior with a move to safety, where he picked up a pair of interceptions, ten pass breakups, and 1.5 sacks.Jamerson then landed with the New Orleans Saints as a fifth-round draft pick in 2018, but the team cut him at the end of training camp, perhaps in an effort to sneak him onto their practice squad. The Houston Texans snapped him up on waivers, however, and he played ten games for Houston before being waived once again. The Packers then put in a claim for the speedy defensive back, listing him as a cornerback when he got back to the dairy state but suiting him up exclusively on special teams for two games.With 4.40 speed, Jamerson has the ability to stay with the faster receivers in the NFL, and he has decently long arms at 32-5/8 inches. Given how the Packers like to use slot corners and safeties somewhat interchangeably, a Micah Hyde-like role with special teams contributions would seem to be the likeliest spot for Jamerson should he make the 53-man roster this fall.59: Hunter Bradley, long snapperA seventh-round pick of the Packers last season, Bradley ended up getting the long-snapping job out of training camp despite some struggles in the preseason. For now, he is the only player at the position on the roster, so the job seems to be his by default for the time being.58: Danny Vitale, fullbackThis former Northwestern Wildcat — one of several on the Packers’ roster — is another excellent athlete for his position. At the 2016 NFL Combine, he posted workout numbers better than many running backs in his class, with a 4.60-second 40, 7.12-second 3-cone Kevin King Jersey White , and 38.5-inch vertical all at 6-foot-1 and 240 pounds.Vitale ended up playing 24 games for the Browns over his first two years before landing on injured reserve to start the 2018 season. After Cleveland released him with an injury settlement, he landed with the Packers, first on the practice squad and then on the active roster for the final five games of last season.With no other true fullbacks on the roster, Vitale has a great opportunity to take hold of a roster spot by impressing as a lead blocker. However, with Matt LaFleur’s offenses seemingly preferring to go single-back with two tight ends instead, he will need to force the issue with excellent play rather than getting a job by default.Although if APC were ranking the roster by social media presence or mustache game, Vitale would probably be in the top ten.57: Kendall Donnerson, outside linebackerLike Bradley, Donnerson was a seventh-round draft pick last season. However, the insane athletic ability that he showed at his Pro Day — including a 4.45-second 40 and 7.03-second 3-cone at 250 pounds — never saw its way onto the field during the regular season.After an uninspiring preseason, Donnerson landed on the practice squad to start the regular season. However, this writer in particular was critical of the defensive coaching staff’s unwillingness to suit him up on gameday once he was promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. With nothing tangible to play for, the opportunity to get young players like Donnerson real reps in game situations seemed ideal to evaluate him as a player rather than just an athlete. Until exhibition games begin in August, that is what he will remain in the eyes of Packers fans.56: Ty Summers, inside linebackerYet another seventh-round draft pick in this group, Summers was just drafted this April and has had no opportunity as yet to impress or disappoint fans. As such, he is another exceptional athlete with a role that is yet to be determined. However, Summers’ contributions in college at TCU came all over the field on defense as well as on special teams. That special teams experience alone makes him a better bet to make the 53 than Donnerson, but so does the thinner depth at the inside linebacker position. And whereas Donnerson is purely an athletic prospect from an FCS school, Summers cashed in on his athleticism (4.51 40) with solid production at a power-five conference.
