Packers: All-NFC North offense entering 2021 season
The Green Bay Packers had the league’s top-scoring offense last season, but their NFC North rivals also have some of the best offensive players in the league.
In this All-NFC North team, there are 2020 Pro Bowlers at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, tackle, guard, and center.
This offense would be almost impossible to stop. Five Packers make the team.
QB: Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay)
Easy choice here. Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFC North by a long way, especially now that Matthew Stafford plays in the NFC West.
Assuming the reigning MVP returns to Green Bay this season, he will again be up there in the MVP race.
RB: Dalvin Cook (Minnesota)
Packers fans know how talented Cook is. He has saved some of his best performances for Green Bay. This division features some great talent at running back, but two-time Pro Bowler Cook is the pick.
WR: Davante Adams (Green Bay)
The best wide receiver in the NFL last season, Adams was a first-team All-Pro and scored a league-high 18 receiving touchdowns in only 14 games.
WR: Allen Robinson (Chicago)
With back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons despite the Bears‘ QB uncertainty, we can imagine how good Robinson would be with a top passer. In this offense, we’d get to see it.
WR: Justin Jefferson (Minnesota)
A breakout star of 2020, Jefferson was incredible with 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie. The sky is the limit for the Vikings‘ wide receiver.
TE: T.J. Hockenson (Detroit)
Hockenson looks on his way to stardom at tight end. He made his first Pro Bowl last season and improved his game in just about every area, including as a receiver with 723 yards and six touchdowns.
LT: David Bakhtiari (Green Bay)
The best pass-protector in the game and a future Hall-of-Famer, the five-time All-Pro is an easy choice to play the most important position along the offensive line.
LG: Elgton Jenkins (Green Bay)
You could ask Jenkins to line up at any position along the line, but in this team he plays left guard, which is where he played the majority of his snaps during his 2020 Pro Bowl season. Jenkins is one of the league’s best young offensive linemen.
C: Frank Ragnow (Detroit)
Ragnow ranked in the top 10 of all centers for both pass block and run block win rate last season, according to ESPN. The 25-year-old was also a second-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler. The Lions have a special talent in Ragnow.
RG: Lucas Patrick (Green Bay)
There were a few options at right guard but I’ve gone with Patrick after the season he’s just had. Patrick ranked sixth among guards in pass block win rate, according to ESPN. It was phenomenal season for Patrick, who also offers the versatility to play multiple positions.
RT: Taylor Decker (Detroit)
Decker plays left tackle for the Lions but will fit in well at right tackle in this team. According to Pro Football Focus, Decker allowed just two sacks on almost 700 pass-blocking snaps last season.
