The Green Bay Packers cornerback room is again flush with talent. If Casey Hayward returns to form, the jousting for playing time will hit fever pitch in less than a month.

The Packers return nearly all of their cornerbacks from a year ago and drafted Baylor's Demetri Goodson in the sixth round of May's NFL draft to round out the 10-player room.

Meanwhile, Davon House waits for his own opportunity behind the likes of Sam Shields, Tramon Williams and Hayward.

The fourth-year cornerback played in all 16 games for the first time in his NFL career last season, recording 44 tackles, a sack and his first career interception off Brandon Weeden in a 31-13 thrashing of Cleveland on Oct. 20.

However, House was relegated to special teams for the final month of the season after a shaky performance in a 40-10 loss to Detroit on Thanksgiving when he allowed two touchdowns.

House got his chance at redemption in the playoffs and played well in place of Shields, who was injured on the first play of the game. He had four tackles, two pass deflections and held Michael Crabtree to two catches for 35 yards, according to Pro Football Focus.

"Besides that (Detroit) game, to me I think I did great," said House of last season. "One area of improvement I needed to improve on was catching those interceptions. If I catch those interceptions ... the cameras would've been all around me (during camp). So I've been big time focusing on catching the balls."

House was limited to 11 games in his first two seasons due to injuries and depth at cornerback. A shoulder injury robbed him of a starting opportunity in 2012, but he's developed into a durable special-teams performer. He led the unit with 12 tackles last season.
