Packers: Power ranking each position ahead of final preseason game
4. Running back
Green Bay’s running back room may be the NFL’s best. There aren’t many duos as talented as Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon, who both had over 1,000 yards from scrimmage in 2021.
Tyler Goodson has starred in the preseason and will likely win the RB3 job. But don’t forget about Kylin Hill, who impressed last year before suffering a torn ACL.
The Packers have great depth at running back.
3. Defensive line
Talking of great depth, how about this Packers defensive line?
Pro Bowler Kenny Clark leads the way, with talented veteran Jarran Reed and Dean Lowry the most likely starters next to him. T.J. Slaton and Jack Heflin have both been impressive this summer. The Packers also added first-round pick Devonte Wyatt this offseason.
Green Bay’s starting secondary of Jaire Alexander, Eric Stokes, Rasul Douglas, Adrian Amos, and Darnell Savage might be the best in the NFL.
The only concern was the depth.
However, cornerbacks Shemar Jean-Charles and Kiondre Thomas allowed zero completions in the preseason game versus the Saints, per Pro Football Focus. At safety, Shawn Davis and Vernon Scott have been impressive.
There’s a lot of talent in the Packers’ secondary.
Quarterback is the most important position in football, and the Packers have one of the league’s best in back-to-back MVP Aaron Rodgers.
Jordan Love has shown significant improvements to his game this summer, and he was excellent in the second preseason game.
Green Bay has a Hall-of-Famer and its potential future QB1 on the roster.
