How many Green Bay Packers players would make an All-NFC offense?
The Packers had the league’s highest-scoring offense last season and multiple first-team All-Pros. But the NFC is loaded with talented offensive players.
With a month to go until the start of the regular season, how many Packers would make an All-NFC offense? Here are my picks for the team.
Aaron Rodgers, Packers
He’s the reigning MVP and back for 2021. After throwing 48 touchdown passes last season and only five interceptions, Rodgers remains the best QB in the conference. He leads the way for the All-NFC offense.
Dalvin Cook, Vikings
A tough call between Cook and Christian McCaffrey, but I’m going with the Vikings’ superstar running back. With 1,557 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns last year and coming off consecutive Pro Bowl seasons, Cook is one of the best RBs in the league.
Davante Adams, Packers; Michael Thomas, Saints; Justin Jefferson, Vikings
Some great wide receivers have missed out here.
Adams was the best in the league last season and a first-team All-Pro, so he’s an easy choice. Thomas is coming off an injury-hit 2020 season but let’s not forget how good he is. Two years ago, Thomas caught an NFL-record 149 passes for 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns.
Jefferson was a breakout star with 1,400 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie. He’s already one of the best receivers in the NFC entering year two.
George Kittle, 49ers
An easy choice. Kittle is a two-time All-Pro and on his way to becoming an all-time great tight end after going over 1,000 yards receiving twice in four seasons.
David Bakhtiari, Packers; Trent Williams, 49ers
Bakhtiari is a five-time All-Pro, Williams an eight-time Pro Bowler. They are two dominant tackles and among the best in the league.
Both Bakhtiari and Williams ranked inside the top 10 among tackles in ESPN’s pass block win rate last season.
Zack Martin, Cowboys; Brandon Scherff, Washington
Martin is arguably the best guard in the NFL. Four times a first-team All-Pro and twice part of the second team, along with six Pro Bowl selections. He finished inside the top three among guards in ESPN’s pass block and run block win rates last season.
Scherff was a first-team All-Pro last season and has been franchised-tagged two years in a row. There’s good reason for that.
Frank Ragnow, Lions
The Lions are building an excellent offensive line and Ragnow is a big part of that. He’s coming off a great season, being named a second-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler.
