Offensive Player of the Year: Zach Tom

It'd be very easy to hand this award to Jordan Love, but without the efforts of Zach Tom, this season was likely much more strenuous on the first-year quarterback.

After drawing five starts as a rookie, Tom started all 17 games this season, finding a home at right tackle, where he was nothing short of dominant.

His 91% pass block win rate ranked 18th in the NFL among all offensive tackles, and his performances against top pass rushers speak for how much the Packers benefited from his contributions. He rendered stars like TJ Watt, Danielle Hunter, Aidan Hutchinson, and Montez Sweat almost useless, as they all combined for one sack against Tom this season.

Across 1,067 snaps, Tom was only penalized three times, and he surrendered a measly two sacks while consistently being ranked inside the top 10 all season for pressure rate allowed among all tackles.

He was arguably the Packers' top run blocker and one of the best in the entire league at his position.

With All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari again missing most of the season due to a knee injury, there were a lot of questions about whether the Packers could produce another top offensive line. Had Tom not played at an All-Pro level this season and played his best against top pass rushers, there's no certainty that Jordan Love and the Packers' young offense would've had the success it did.
