22. James Starks (Freddie’s pick)
For a sixth-round draft choice, James Starks has given the Packers a ton of value.
As a rookie, Starks was thrown in at the deep end in the playoffs, rushing for 315 yards and a touchdown over four games to help Green Bay en route to the Super Bowl.
In recent years, Starks has been a key part in the Packers’ strong 1-2 punch in the backfield with Eddie Lacy. While Lacy has been the No. 1 back with his bruising style, Starks has offered plenty as a complementary piece. He is also capable of taking over the starting reigns if required.
His 601 rushing yards and two touchdowns in 2015 was a career-best, and his role as a pass catcher has increased over the years. He posted 392 receiving yards and three touchdowns last season, also a career-high. The downside of his 2015 season was his five fumbles, but ball security hasn’t been a major issue for him during his career.
The Packers got more value out of their 2010 sixth-rounder than they would have predicted, and his latest two-year deal ensures Starks will have an important role on offense for the coming years.
