5. Davante Adams – WR

A three-time Pro Bowler, Davante Adams has quickly become one of Aaron Rodgers’ all-time best wide receivers. In the past four seasons, Adams has put up an incredible 40 touchdown receptions. An elite route-runner and one of the best red-zone targets in the league, Adams will likely also be one of the best Packers players in the 2020s.

4. Clay Matthews – LB

As mentioned earlier, Clay Matthews made one of the plays of the Super Bowl along with Ryan Pickett, forcing a fumble that changed the game. In the 2010s, Matthews made 73.5 sacks for the Packers, along with 168 quarterback hits, and 14 forced fumbles. Matthews was the PFWA Defensive Player of the Year in 2010, and he made five Pro Bowls and was a two-time All-Pro.

3. Jordy Nelson – WR

There have been some great wide receivers already in this article, but none had the connection with Aaron Rodgers quite like Jordy Nelson. Nelson was a second-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler in 2014 and he led the league in touchdowns in 2016. He put up 7,162 receiving yards and 65 touchdowns in the past decade.

2. David Bakhtiari – T

Enter David Bakhtiari, Rodgers’ best pass-protector. Bakhtiari has dominated for half a decade with four All-Pro selections and two Pro Bowls to show for it. According to Pro Football Focus, Bakhtiari had the second-best pass-blocking grade over the decade, behind Joe Thomas.
