10. Las Vegas Raiders

It's Davante Adams versus the Packers. But Joe Barry's defense doesn't only have to worry about Adams, but also the 2022 NFL rushing champion Josh Jacobs, wide receiver Hunter Renfrow, and second-round rookie tight end Michael Mayer.

On defense, All-Pro Maxx Crosby is joined by seventh overall pick Tyree Wilson. That's a scary pass-rush duo.

9. Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers are one of the teams to watch this season. They traded up to No. 1 overall to land Alabama quarterback Bryce Young. They did have to give up star wide receiver D.J. Moore to make the deal happen with the Chicago Bears. The Panthers signed Adam Thielen in free agency, then drafted talented receiver Jonathan Mingo in the second round.

Carolina is an improving team, but how well it does this season will be determined by Young.

8. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers haven't had a losing season for 20 years. They are always competitive under head coach Mike Tomlin. Pittsburgh also put together one of the best draft classes in the entire league.

On the road, this will be a challenging game for the Packers.

7. New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints got their quarterback by signing Derek Carr. New Orleans strengthened its running back depth by signing former Packer Jamaal Williams and then drafting TCU's Kendre Miller in the third round.

Second-year wide receiver Chris Olave has Pro Bowl potential.

An improved offense along with a defense that ranked No. 5 in the NFL last season will make the Saints a tough opponent for the Packers, even at Lambeau Field.
