Season Outlook Analysis

Offense
Position
Quarterbacks
A
Aaron Rodgers is still one of the top 5 QBs in the league. Don't think Hunley can carry this team if Rodgers goes down, so can't give an A+ here.
Running Backs
B
Serviceable, but not going to set the world on fire.
Protection & Blocking
B
This is a pretty inexperienced group overall. They will need to stay healthy to be competitive in a tough division with good defenses
Receiving
B+
Randall Cobb healthy again will help. Adams has really come into his own too. Graham and Lewis are still a strong TE combination and Packers love RBs who can catch out of the backfield!

Skills Analysis Notes
With Rodgers in the game, the Packers have enough serviceable players to be weapons for him. Cobb and Adams can stretch the field and the TEs are a good combination. However, without Rodgers, we saw howw this non-superstar group can really come back to earth!
Defense
Position
Defensive Line
C
Wilkerson is a good pick up, but this group is really thin still.
Linebackers
B+
This is the hard and soul od the Packers defense, but probably not as good of an overall unit as in years past.
Defensive Backs
A-
I think this is a really solid unit and can be one of the best in the league! Williams is All-Pro caliber and King can be there too. Clinton-Dix is solid in the middle.

Overall Unit Analysis
Crosby is still one of the best in the NFL. If the PAckers can move between the 20s, Crosby gives them a chance for points every time they pass midfield

McCarthy has shown he can win with anyone over the years - as long as he has Rodgers though!

Analysis
This is not the strongest of lineups and we hope Rodgers stays healthy. They don't have the superstars outside of Rodgers on offense, but serviceable. Packers, though, know how to find ways to win and you know they will be competitive. With the Vikings emerging and Bears likely to be competitive again, playoffs are not a slam dunk for this bunch.
