Packers: Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams part of PFF All-Pro Team
Five Packers made the 2020 PFF All-Pro Team.
After an impressive 13-3 season which has seen the Green Bay Packers clinch the top seed in the NFC, it’s not surprising to see a number of players selected to the Pro Football Focus All-Pro Team for 2020.
After the Packers’ offense finished the regular season ranked first in the NFL for points, three offensive players make the PFF first team.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers posted career-best numbers with 48 touchdowns and just five interceptions. This could be the first of many awards for Rodgers, who looks on his way to a third NFL MVP.
Wide receiver Davante Adams earned his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl selection this season after putting up 1,374 receiving yards while tying the franchise record with 18 touchdown catches. And all this despite missing two-and-a-half games. Simply incredible.
The other offensive player to make the PFF All-Pro team for the Packers is center Corey Linsley, a free agent to be who is coming off a career-year. Linsley was a Pro Bowl snub but PFF notes that he earned their highest grade among all centers.
Linsley led all centers in ESPN’s run block win rate metric, while finishing fifth at the position for pass block win rate.
Defensively, the Packers’ secondary has played some great football, particularly down the stretch.
Cornerback Jaire Alexander earned his first Pro Bowl selection this year and is now part of the PFF All-Pro team after shutting down many number one wide receivers.
He’s joined by safety Adrian Amos, who has been a consistent part of the secondary since signing with the Packers in 2019. Amos has played some of his best football in the second half of the season, forming one of the league’s top safety pairings with Darnell Savage.
The Packers have had key contributions from players at premium positions. If that can continue into the playoffs, this team can make a Super Bowl run.
