2. Jayden Reed, WR

In addition to finding their franchise quarterback, I think the Green Bay Packers have found a playmaker to filter their offense though in Jayden Reed, a second-round pick out of Michigan State.

And they've been filtering the offense through him for most of the 2023 season.

Aside from running backs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon, nobody on the Packers roster has more touches than Reed's 75 this season, and he's got 800 yards from scrimmage along with 10 total touchdowns. At 11.3 yards per touch and a touchdown every 80 yards from scrimmage, Reed has been wildly effective with his opportunities and I won't be shocked to see the Packers build the offense around him next season.

3. Luke Musgrave, TE

Although Musgrave has been out for a stretch of this season with a lacerated kidney (since Week 11), what we saw from him prior to the injury should have Packers fans optimistic that he can -- and will -- be a foundational piece of the offense moving forward.

Musgrave has 33 receptions for 341 yards in the 10 games he's played, but it's his all-around skill set that leads me to believe he's a foundational piece going forward. He's got size, athleticism, strong hands, and the blocking abilities of a true top-tier tight end. I think the Packers hit the jackpot at that position in the 2023 NFL Draft.
