Left tackle: David Bakhtiari

When healthy, David Bakhtiari is still a dominant pass-protector. The five-time All-Pro has only played 12 games over the past two seasons, but he is still an outstanding left tackle. His return this season is great news for Jordan Love.

Left guard: Elgton Jenkins

Elgton Jenkins can play anywhere along the offensive line, but left guard is his best position. It's at this position where Jenkins has made two Pro Bowls. With Bakhtiari and Jenkins, the Packers have a rock-solid left side of the offensive line.

Center: Zach Tom

Maybe a slight surprise here, with second-year Zach Tom starting at center ahead of Josh Myers. Tom hasn't played at center for Green Bay, but he had plenty of experience there at Wake Forest. Tom showed he is good enough to start for the Packers, and it won't be surprising if he wins the job ahead of Myers this summer, who has been inconsistent.

Right guard: Jon Runyan Jr.

Jon Runyan Jr. has provided solid play at right guard, starting 33 games for the Packers over the past two seasons. He is the frontrunner to start at right guard again this year.

Right tackle: Yosh Nijman

Yosh Nijman could face competition from Zach Tom for the right tackle job, but with Tom starting at center in this projected lineup, Nijman starts here. Nijman has started 21 games for the Packers over the past two seasons, including 13 last year, and he can play both tackle spots.
