Seven of the Green Bay Packers' starters in last season's opener are no longer on the roster.

This promises to be a fascinating year for the Packers, simply due to how unpredictable they are. One person could argue that Green Bay will win the NFC North, while another could predict a top-five draft pick. And either one could be proven right.

There are undoubtedly areas of concern for the Packers this season, but also plenty of reasons to be optimistic. Take one look at Green Bay's potential lineup, and the key takeaway is potential.

How could the Packers' new-look starting lineup take shape this season?

This should be the Green Bay Packers starting lineup in 2023

Quarterback: Jordan Love

The easiest decision Matt LaFleur has to make this summer. Jordan Love's time finally arrived after the Packers traded Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets.

There are clear parallels between the end of the Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers eras. The Packers will hope history continues to repeat itself, with Love becoming the next great quarterback in Green Bay.

Running back: Aaron Jones

Aaron Jones has shown confidence in Love, and Green Bay keeping him this offseason is great news for the offense. The Packers should lean on their ground game, and that starts with Jones, who set a career-best in rushing yards last season.

Wide receiver: Christian Watson

Battling injuries and a lack of confidence, Christian Watson made a slow start to his rookie season. But he made up for lost time, finding the end zone eight times in the second half of the year. Watson is a breakout candidate for the Packers in 2023.

Wide receiver: Romeo Doubs

Watson might be the Packers' X-factor on offense this season, but Romeo Doubs could easily become the team's leader in receptions and receiving yards. The Love-Doubs connection has been on full display this offseason. He could be the team's WR1 this year.

Tight end: Luke Musgrave

Luke Musgrave has already been impressing his teammates, and he's a lock to make the starting lineup. Tight ends often take time to adjust in the NFL, but the Packers need Musgrave to make a fast start. He can be a matchup nightmare with his size, speed, and athleticism.

Tight end: Tucker Kraft

The Packers should start with two tight ends rather than three receivers. They will likely lean on their ground game more frequently to support Love, and what better way than to set the tone early with two-TE sets?
