Who would make an All-NFC North offense in 2022? How many Green Bay Packers would make the team?
The NFC North has lost some offensive talent this offseason. Two players from last year’s All-NFC North team — Davante Adams and Allen Robinson — are gone.
Still, plenty of talent remains, and this would be one incredible lineup.
Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers (Packers)
The Packers’ back-to-back MVP winner is the only option here. Rodgers will aim to match Brett Favre’s three consecutive MVP awards this season.
Running back: Dalvin Cook (Vikings)
Cook has made three straight Pro Bowls with over 1,000 yards rushing in each. He is consistently one of the top running backs in the NFL.
Wide receiver: Justin Jefferson (Vikings)
With Davante Adams gone, Jefferson is now the NFC North’s top wide receiver. Jefferson has 3,016 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns in only two seasons.
Wide receiver: Adam Thielen (Vikings)
Yet another Viking makes the team. Thielen’s receiving numbers regressed slightly in 2021, but he still caught 10 touchdowns and remains an excellent pass catcher.
Wide receiver: Darnell Mooney (Bears)
The Chicago Bears have arguably the NFL’s worst receiving corps, but that is by no fault of Mooney, who had 81 catches for 1,055 yards and four touchdowns last year.
Tight end: T.J. Hockenson (Lions)
A Pro Bowler in 2020, Hockenson is one of the best young tight ends in football and could be set for a big year.
Left tackle: David Bakhtiari (Packers)
Assuming he’s fully healthy, the five-time All-Pro is still one of the top left tackles in the NFL.
Left guard: Jonah Jackson (Lions)
A Pro Bowler last season, Jackson is a key part of a very talented Lions offensive line.
Center: Frank Ragnow (Lions)
A Pro Bowler and All-Pro in 2020, Ragnow is one of the best centers in the NFL and is still only 26 years old.
Right guard: Halapoulivaati Vaitai (Lions)
I told you the Lions had a good offensive line. There were no obvious choices in the NFC North for the right guard spot. Lucas Patrick wasn’t included as he will play center in Chicago. Vaitai is coming off a solid season in Detroit.
Right tackle: Elgton Jenkins (Packers)
Jenkins could make this team at all five positions, but he is most likely to line up at right tackle for the Packers in 2022. The Pro Bowler is one of the best in the league at any offensive line spot.
