3. David Bakhtiari
David Bakhtiari probably gets talked about more than anyone on this list, but that still isn’t enough. At just 26-years-old, he’s one of, if not THE, best left tackles in the game today.
With Bakhtiari on the line, it’s one position Green Bay never has to worry about. They can typically send him out there on an island and he’ll take care of his man. That was never more apparent than when the Packers played the Minnesota Vikings. Bakhtiari matched up with Everson Griffen, one of the best pass-rushing defensive ends in the league, and completely shut him down.
As good as he is now, Bakhtiari has even more room to grow. He will only get better and better, as he continues to come into his own. With all the other uncertainties on the right side of the line, it’s good for the Packers to know they have someone they can lock in at left tackle.
