Standout: Romeo Doubs

With Christian Watson not yet taking a single snap in 2023, there have been large expectations for Romeo Doubs to step up as the Packers' top wide receiver, and he has not disappointed.

Highlighted by a 30-yard toe-drag sideline catch, Doubs secured five passes for 73 yards and his third touchdown catch on the young season.

With under three minutes to play, Doubs hauled in an impressive touchdown catch, reaching up over the defender in the end zone, to tie the game at 17-17 and placing him second in the NFL in touchdowns by wide receivers (3).

Even when Watson is able to return from injury, Doubs has firmly placed himself as the top pass catcher in Green Bay.

Standout: Rasheed Walker

Filling in for All-Pro and likely future Hall-of-Fame left tackle David Bakhtiari is no easy task for any player. But seventh-round pick Rasheed Walker has proven that he very well could be a long-term option at the position for Green Bay.

Walker displaced Yosh Nijman on the depth chart as the primary backup to Bakhtiari, and in week three against the Saints, he held his own.

He battled well against Carl Granderson, who the Saints just signed to a long-term extension for his continued emergence as the team's top pass rusher across from Cameron Jordan.

Per Brad Spielberger of PFF, Walker has registered back-to-back games with a pass block grade of at least 75.0 and has zero pressures allowed on True Pass Sets. He's currently the only tackle with 25 or more TPS and zero pressures allowed.

With Bakhtiari's lingering knee issues continuing into the 2023 season, the Packers may have stuck offensive line draft-day gold again with Walker, and he's securing a future as a starting-caliber player in the NFL.
