Winner: Jayden Reed

Wicks is having an outstanding rookie season, but Jayden Reed is leading the way. The second-round pick has been everything the Packers hoped for and then some. He finishes the regular season as Green Bay's leader in receptions and receiving yards, and he is tied with Romeo Doubs for most touchdown catches.

Reed caught all four of his targets for 112 yards against the Bears, including a crucial 59-yarder in the fourth quarter that calmed any nerves after the Bears had kicked a field goal. Reed can do it all. He is phenomenal after the catch, wins 50-50 balls, is a willing blocker, and regularly makes big plays. Reed is a star, and he delivered for his team again in Week 18.

Winner: Karl Brooks

Yet another rookie makes the list. This time, it's sixth-round defensive lineman Karl Brooks.

Brooks couldn't stop making big defensive plays. He finished with one sack, one QB hit, and two tackles for loss. It's hard to believe he fell to the sixth round in the draft back in April. Brooks finishes his rookie season with four sacks (including two against the Bears), and he is yet another first-year player the Packers can be excited about for the future.
