Casey Hayward: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)A foot injury limited Hayward during the offseason program, but it was never believed to be an overly serious issue. With Tramon Williams off to Cleveland, Hayward is a heavy favorite to fill the starting cornerback spot across from Sam Shields. Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins also figure to compete for snaps, but Randall will likely serve as the nickelback and Rollins may just provide depth as a rookie.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Persistent hamstring issues derailed Hayward's highly-anticipated second season last year, when he played just three games. Fortunately, Hayward was able to participate in the Packers' offseason activities, putting him in good standing to return as a regularly featured cornerback this season. As a rookie in 2012, Hayward totaled 53 tackles (40 solo) and six interceptions.
Hayward gives the Packers depth at CB behind starters Tramon Williams and Sam Shields.
A second round draft pick, Hayward will provide depth at cornerback and could see some playing time if injuries occur or the Packers decide to shift Charles Woodson to safety.
