Five former Green Bay Packers players from the Aaron Rodgers era that would dominate in the 2022 team.

Aaron Rodgers is surrounded by one of the deepest rosters he has played with as the Green Bay Packers‘ starting quarterback.

But which of his former teammates would help take the 2022 team to the next level?

Today, we’ll look at five former Packers who played in the Rodgers era and would’ve dominated in the 2022 team in their prime. There are a couple of rules for this article:

  1. They must have played in the Aaron Rodgers era (starting in 2008)
  2. At least one full season must have passed since they last played for the Packers

With that in mind, let’s get started.

5. S Micah Hyde

The Packers didn’t truly appreciate what they had in Micah Hyde until it was too late. Hyde had an excellent four years in Green Bay but took his game to another level with the Buffalo Bills.

In Buffalo, Hyde became a two-time All-Pro and Pro Bowler.

So, how exactly would Hyde help the 2022 team?

How would Micah Hyde help 2022 Packers?


Green Bay has as good a starting secondary as you will find anywhere in the league. However, the defense lacks cornerback and safety depth in a big way. An area of concern is the No. 3 safety spot.

Hyde could do it all for this team. He can line up at safety or slot corner, another area of uncertainty for this defense.

The Packers have been unable to replace what Hyde brought to their defense. His ability to line up just about anywhere in the secondary would help this year’s team.

Hyde would provide turnovers — he has 22 interceptions since the start of 2014.

He would also finally end Green Bay’s search for a punt returner. Hyde had three punt return touchdowns in a two-year span for the Packers. He would be the team’s best punt returner since, well, Micah Hyde.
