ESPN has ranked each team’s offensive weapons for 2020, and the Packers are in the bottom half.

For the Green Bay Packers offense to find success this season, they’re going to need their star quarterback-running back-wide receiver trio of Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones, and Davante Adams to all play well.

The Packers did make some offseason additions such as free-agent signing Devin Funchess, as well as draft picks AJ Dillon and Josiah Deguara.

But outside of the star players, there is a lot of unproven talent on offense for the Packers.

ESPN ranks Packers’ offensive weapons in bottom half of NFL

ESPN’s Bill Barnwell ranked the offensive weapons for all 32 teams ahead of the 2020 season. And the Packers are all the way down at No. 19.

It doesn’t come as much of a surprise. While Green Bay’s offense does feature a Pro Bowl receiver in Adams and a star running back in Jones, there are some serious question marks behind them on the depth chart, and also at the tight end position.

Potential? No doubt. Jace Sternberger could have a breakout season. Allen Lazard and Funchess could both be consistent, complementary pass-catchers in this offense. Dillon could be a great addition this year.

But there are a lot of ifs and maybes, and until it all comes together on the field, it’s understandable why the Packers’ offensive weapons are ranked in the bottom half of the league.

Note that the rankings don’t include quarterbacks, so from Green Bay’s perspective, it’s about Aaron Rodgers’ supporting cast and doesn’t factor in No. 12 himself.

What do you think? Should Green Bay be higher in the rankings as Adams and Jones form one of the best receiver-running back combos in the league? Or is 19th about right given the uncertainty outside of the offense’s two star players?
