2. Secondary

Starters: Jaire Alexander, Kevin King, Adrian Amos, Darnell Savage

Backups: Eric Stokes, Chandon Sullivan, Shemar Jean-Charles, Isaac Yiadom, Vernon Scott, Henry Black

The Packers have two of the best defensive backs in the league in starting positions, one player set for a breakout season, and a first-round pick.

Jaire Alexander is arguably the best cornerback in the NFL, coming off an All-Pro season. Adrian Amos is one of the best safeties in football, and he starts alongside Darnell Savage, a potential future All-Pro.

Kevin King struggled last year but has been a solid starter at corner in the past, while rookie Eric Stokes could soon have a significant role to play in the defensive backfield.

Depth at cornerback is a concern, but that’s the case for many teams. When it comes to the starters, there aren’t too many secondaries that can compete with the Packers’.

1. Quarterback

Starter: Aaron Rodgers

Backup: Jordan Love

Similarly, it’s hard to match Green Bay’s quarterback room.

Leading the way is the MVP of the league, Aaron Rodgers, who is coming off an incredible 48-touchdown, five-interception season. He’s on top of his game and still one of the best in the NFL.

His backup is a 2020 first-round pick, still developing his game but talented enough to fill in should Rodgers miss any time. Love has a way to go to still, but he showed a ton of potential in the preseason.

In many ways, this is the perfect situation. A starter who is still playing at an MVP level towards the end of his career, with a second-year, first-round pick waiting in the wings.
