Pro Football Focus has started to reveal which players have made their annual Top 101 Players rankings. Currently, four Green Bay Packers have made the list.

The Packers made a return-to-form in 2019 by winning the NFC North and advancing to the NFC Championship Game. They had standout seasons from a number of players, and it’s no surprise to see so many part of Pro Football Focus’ Top 101 players of 2019 rankings.

At the time of writing, PFF hasn’t revealed the top 25 in the rankings, so there could still be more Packers included. Neither Za’Darius Smith or Preston Smith have been featured yet, so there has to be a good chance they’ll both be in the top 25.

For now, four Packers are part of the rankings: Davante Adams, Aaron Jones, Aaron Rodgers and Kenny Clark. All four had excellent seasons with three of them being selected to the Pro Bowl.

At 33rd, Adams is the highest-ranked Packer so far. Despite dealing with a toe injury for much of the season and also missing four games as a result, Adams was still one of the NFL’s top targets and Rodgers’ go-to receiver. Even with a month out, Adams finished 18th in the NFL for receptions. He had 83 catches on the year for 997 yards and five touchdowns, averaging over 83 receiving yards a game.

Jones is 56th in the rankings after a breakout season. A touchdown machine, the third-year running back found the end zone 19 times in the regular season and four more times in two playoff games. Effective as both a runner and a receiver, Jones proved why he’s one of the best running backs in football.

Rodgers is 83rd in the rankings. Despite not having the same level of incredible consistency we’ve seen from him throughout his career, he’s still one of the best passers in football, as proven this season with 26 touchdowns to four interceptions.

Clark comes in at 97th in the rankings after finishing the year with six sacks and a career-best 62 tackles.

We’ll find out soon whether any more Packers make PFF’s Top 101 for 2019.
