4. David Bakhtiari

Since being drafted to Green Bay in 2013, David Bakhtiari has provided great protection for Rodgers. Power and strength allow him to keep defenders away from the backfield which gives Rodgers plenty of time to make explosive plays. Being such a powerful lineman, Bakhtiari has stepped up as a leader by motivating the entire offensive line to get the job done which is what makes them one of the best offensive lines in the NFL.

Bakhtiari suffered a terrible injury at the end of the regular season which hurt the entire offense. Bakhtiari’s production sparks the entire offense, so it was devastating to lose him.  During the playoffs, Green Bay’s offense struggled at times without Bakhtiari’s protection, and it factored into their loss in the NFC Championship Game against Tampa Bay.

Nevertheless, the Packers will be thrilled to have him back for the upcoming season. Bakhtiari is an important player on this team.

It would be wise for the Packers to keep Bakhtiari for many years to come as he is one of the most efficient offensive linemen to ever play at Green Bay. Without a doubt, Bakhtiari is one of the unsung heroes on this Green Bay offense.

3. Aaron Jones

Aaron Jones has worked extremely hard for the position he’s in today. Since being drafted in 2017, Jones has been determined to improve himself each season and has become a top play-maker for the Packers.

Jones brings both speed and power to the table which allows him to pick apart defenses. What separates him from others is his amazing ability to break tackles and efficiency in the red zone. Offenses with powerhouse running backs like Jones are successful because the power runs set up more explosive passing plays. Jones has definitely proven himself as a top NFL running back.

Many fans were thrilled when Jones was given a contract extension. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport explained the details of Aaron Jones’ contract extension which is $48 million on a four-year deal.  Given that Jones has emerged as a superstar running back, he deserves to stay in Green Bay to continue his play-making abilities. Jones has proven that with hard work and dedication, greatness can occur.  He is truly an inspirational athlete.
