For the first time since 2005, the Green Bay Packers head into a season without Greg Jennings and Donald Driver. A changing of the guard -- one that began in 2012 -- is official at wide receiver.

The Packers are counting on Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jordy Nelson leading Mike McCarthy's multi-receiver attack. And they'll need one or two younger receivers behind them to emerge as well.

On Tuesday, quarterback Aaron Rodgers expressed confidence in the group as a whole. When Jennings went down with a core muscle injury last season, the Packers were forced to adjust and Cobb became a go-to receiver. Targeted at least seven times in 10 games, he finished with 80 receptions for 954 yards and eight touchdowns. Jones' 14 receiving touchdowns led the league. Nelson, meanwhie, had 745 yards and seven scores in 12 games.

Still, the Packers did try to re-sign Jennings in free agency a lot longer than most expected. Now, his absence is permanent.

There isn't much panic from the quarterback.

"I still like the guys we've got," Rodgers said. "We have a lot of talent at that position. I think Randall Cobb is a guy who could be a 100-plus catch guy every year. James Jones led the league in touchdown receptions last year. Jordy has had some real big years for us. Behind those guys I like what Jarrett Boykin brings. He's a big, physical receiver who's going to get some opportunities this year. And I think he has a great approach to the game, as does Jeremy Ross. Those guys last year really stepped up and cared about it enough to put in a lot of extra time."
