Running back: Aaron Jones

The Packers maintain continuity at running back this season with Aaron Jones returning. Green Bay may need to lean on its rushing attack more frequently to help out Love. Last season, Jones set a new career-best in rushing yards with 1,121, and his 395 receiving yards ranked second in his career.

Wide receiver: Christian Watson

Christian Watson is a breakout candidate this season. You could argue he already had his breakout season in the second half of 2022, when he caught 31 passes for 523 yards and seven touchdowns in the final eight games. One of those touchdown catches came from Jordan Love.

Wide receiver: Romeo Doubs

Before suffering an injury that cost him four games, Romeo Doubs had been the Packers' most impressive rookie receiver last season, catching 31 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns in the opening nine games. Doubs can be an excellent WR2 or WR3 moving forward.

Wide receiver: Jayden Reed

Jayden Reed should start from Day 1. He may spend most of his time in the slot, but he can offer so much more than that. Matt LaFleur will find ways to get him the ball, whether on jet sweeps, out of the backfield, or out wide.

Tight end: Luke Musgrave

Another rookie who could start is tight end Luke Musgrave. We can include third-round pick Tucker Kraft, too, when the Packers go with two tight ends. Musgrave can immediately contribute as a receiver, giving Jordan Love plenty of options through the air.
