Often a favourite around here, the 2017 Packers will continue to go against the grain in the NFL in modern times, and be very successful at that - they're just about equal favourites with the Seahawks to take out the NFC for the first time since 2010. Site favourite Jordy Nelson will return after leading the league in touchdown receptions last season, and will hopefully equal or better those numbers in 2017. Rodgers will, as always, be an MVP candidate, but having Brett Hundley as his back-up rather than Joe Callahan wasn't a smart move. The OL had 3/5 starters and 3 back-ups on the 53, which definitely is lower than we'd expect from the Packers but the depth is promising, with 2016 second-round pick Jason Spriggs hopefully going to push to start in one of the guard spots in 2017. The Packers will still be at the bottom in the NFL for tight ends, as they continue with an all-black position by signing Martellus Bennett to join two other busts. Four starters on defense is right up there in this league, including three at linebacker and the second-season Dean Lowry. QB: Aaron Rodgers FB: Aaron Ripkowski WR: Jordy Nelson, Jeff Janis (Also KR) OL: David Bakhtiari, Corey Linsley, Bryan Bulaga, Jason Spriggs, Lucas Patrick, Kyle Murphy DE: Dean Lowry OLB: Clay Matthews, Kyler Fackrell ILB: Jake Ryan, Blake Martinez Special Teams: K Mason Crosby, P Justin Vogel, LS Brett Goode Practice Squad: QB Joe Callahan Starters: 10 Total on 53-man roster: 18 Note: C Don Barclay and OLB Vince Biegel are currently on the IR and therefore not on the 53-man roster. They both would obviously be in the 53 were they healthy. FB Joe Kerridge is also on the IR, I'm unsure as to whether he'd have made the 53 though. They're down on their 2016 results, but it's still the team to root for in the NFC. Rodgers-to-Nelson will stay one of the most lethal combinations in the NFL, while the defence will be worth watching.
