The Packers offense featured some of the NFC North’s best players last season.

While there’s certainly a case to be made that the Green Bay Packers should’ve strengthened their receiving corps this offseason, they do have three of the best offensive players in the NFL.

Few teams can match the Packers’ quarterback-running back-wide receiver trio of Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones, and Davante Adams.

As long as they are healthy, the Packers offense can score against any defense.

Three Packers in PFF’s top five offensive player grades in NFC North

Of Pro Football Focus’ five highest-graded offensive players in the NFC North last season, three of them were Packers. Adams and Jones make up the top two with Rodgers fourth.

The other two players from the NFC North to make the top five were Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins in third place and Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in fifth place. No players from the Chicago Bears made the top five.

What this shows is that despite all of the inconsistency the Packers had on offense last season, their top three players are among the best not only in the division but the entire league. The depth behind each of those players was a concern last season.

Green Bay has gone a way to strengthening the depth at running back by drafting AJ Dillon in the second round. The depth chart now looks strong with Jones, Dillon, and Jamaal Williams as the top three.

First-round pick Jordan Love could replace Rodgers someday, but in the meantime, he could potentially give the team a better backup quarterback.

There is uncertainty at receiver behind Adams, still, however. If Adams misses any time, who will take over as the number one receiver? Devin Funchess or Allen Lazard?

But as long as Rodgers, Jones, and Adams are healthy, Green Bay’s offense will be in good shape.
