Season Outlook Analysis

Offense
Position
Quarterbacks
A+
No flaw to his game. Excels in pretty much every aspect of a quarterback. Staying on the field is his only concern.
Running Backs
B
Solid committee for situational downs.
Protection & Blocking
A
Outstanding cohesive unit. They rarely give up any sacks in the pocket. Once they get their hands on a defender, they are locked on. Do a great job of shifting over and passing defenders onto the next guy. Athletic group.
Receiving
B+
Losing veteran Jordy Nelson is going to be tough, but Green Bay is a wide receiver factory. Next man will step up and believe a new guy will make a name for himself especially when they got Rodgers throwing to them. Also brought in Jimmy Graham to give Rodgers a new toy to play with in the middle of the field. Big red zone target.

Skills Analysis Notes
Starts with the O-Line providing tons of time for Rodgers to dissect defenses. Not an overwhelmingly athletic skill positions but have great fundamentals and timing with the QB. Adding Jimmy Graham will make the Packers one of the deadliest red zone teams in the league.

Defense
Position
Defensive Line
B+
Muhammad Wilkerson is a big addition and will provide them with more pass rushing. Quick guys across the line.
Linebackers
B
Gritty, scrappy guys. Will make the plays that are there to be made. Sound in gaps against run. Can be exposed in coverage against tight ends and running backs. Clay Matthews is reaching the end.
Defensive Backs
B
Some young corner backs will be thrown into the fire. Will have some growing pains but ultimately will be able to hold against most receivers in the league. Play makers that can change the game with creating turnovers.

Skills Analysis Notes
With Rodgers on the other side of the ball, this defense just has to be formidable which is what should be expected. Not going to be lock down but has the ability to make timely plays and succeed in situational football.

Expectations/ Outlook
Will get back into the playoffs but not enough to win the division. A wildcard team that will ultimately not advance as a road team. A highly productive offense with a defense that has not been able to be consistent.
