Left tackle: David Bakhtiari

David Bakhtiari showed that he is still a phenomenal pass-protector last season. As long as he's healthy, he will start at left tackle and shut down pass rushers.

Left guard: Elgton Jenkins

Elgton Jenkins struggled at right tackle last season. Moving him back to left guard was the right choice, and he made the second Pro Bowl of his career there. The Packers have a dominant left side of their offensive line when at full strength.

Center: Josh Myers

Josh Myers shouldn't be a lock to start at center, but there isn't much competition for the spot. Zach Tom is an option, but he has been getting most of his reps at right tackle. Tom's best fit might be to start at tackle, which makes Myers the choice at center.

Right guard: Jon Runyan Jr.

The Packers don't need to make a change at right guard. Jon Runyan Jr. has started 33 games at this position over the past two seasons and provides steady, consistent play. It would be surprising if the Packers went in another direction.

Right tackle: Zach Tom

Tom deserves to start. He played well in his rookie year and his opportunity could come at right tackle, where he has been getting first-team reps during the offseason program. It should be a good battle between Tom and Yosh Nijman, but Tom should start.
