Packers: Power ranking each position group ahead of training camp 2019
4. Offensive line
Another area the Packers have really improved this offseason is along the offensive line.
Green Bay has an elite starting duo at the tackle spots. David Bakhtiari, a three-time All-Pro on the left side of the offensive line, is as good as any tackle in the league in pass protection. Bryan Bulaga isn’t far off, and if he can avoid injury in 2019, he can make a case for a new long-term deal in the final year of his current contract.
Center Corey Linsley hasn’t missed a snap over the past two seasons and continues to be an important player at the heart of the Packers’ offensive line.
Areas of concern last season included guard, but the Packers have restocked their depth chart by signing Billy Turner and drafting Elgton Jenkins. Cole Madison, a fifth-round draft choice last year, is also in the mix for a starting job. Factor in Turner and Jenkins’ versatility, and suddenly Green Bay’s depth looks much stronger.
With competition for starting positions, versatility and depth, the Packers’ offensive line is set up for success in 2019. The one player they can’t afford to lose is Bakhtiari, but when he’s on the field, the Packers have the best left tackle in football.
