This week, Pro Football Focus has been revealing its top 50 players ahead of the 2022 season. We now know that five Green Bay Packers players make the list.

Reigning back-to-back MVP Aaron Rodgers was the final Packers player to be revealed. He is at No. 3 in the rankings.

While many might feel Rodgers should be top of the list as he has been voted the league MVP two seasons in a row, it’s hard to argue with the decision to put Aaron Donald on top.

Donald is one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history and is still on top of his game. He has been a first-team All-Pro seven years in a row and a Pro Bowler eight seasons running. Donald is also a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

But perhaps Aaron Rodgers should’ve been in the No. 2 spot.

That belongs to San Francisco 49ers tackle Trent Williams.

No doubt about it, Williams is a dominant tackle and is coming off a phenomenal season in which he earned first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors.

But is he better than the NFL MVP? That’s up for debate.

Aaron Rodgers is still playing at an elite level. Since the start of 2020, Rodgers has thrown for 8,414 yards, 85 touchdowns, and nine interceptions, won two NFL MVPs, and has been named a first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler twice.

He has achieved more in two seasons than most quarterbacks dream of accomplishing in their entire careers.

The Packers ended up with five players in PFF’s top 50: Aaron Rodgers, Jaire Alexander, David Bakhtiari, Adrian Amos, and Rashan Gary.

Two players on offense and two on defense. Not bad at all.

The Packers have one of their most talented rosters in years. Can they finally end their decade-long wait for another Super Bowl appearance in 2022?
