During this mini-bye, the Green Bay Packers have embarked on some self-scouting to pinpoint areas for improvement. So, in a parallel spirit, we’ll examine each position group and how they measure up against one another.
Let’s assess the eleven positions by utilizing PFF as our compass, ranking them from first to worst after four games this season.
After completing the first four games, here is a comprehensive ranking of every positional unit on the Green Bay Packers.
Anders Carlson and Daniel Whelan have unquestionably brought their A-game to the field to kick off this season. Carlson, in particular, has been nothing short of exceptional, converting all nine of his extra-point attempts and nailing five field goals, including two impressive kicks from beyond fifty yards. On the flip side, Whelan has been showcasing his powerful leg, offering a clear rationale for Green Bay’s choice of him over the veteran Pat O’Donnell. While there is a touchdown return tainting his record, Whelan’s performance has been nothing short of stellar when you set aside that one unfortunate punt.
2. Wide Receiver
Despite the absence of their star wide receiver, Christian Watson, for a significant part of the season, the Packers have witnessed several players stepping up admirably. Romeo Doubs, in particular, has emerged as a standout performer, leading the Packers with 20 receptions for 224 yards and three touchdowns. Additionally, rookies Dontayvion Wicks and Jayden Reed have demonstrated their potential and quickly justified the Packers’ high regard for them. With Watson increasing his workload and as these young talents continue to gain experience, this receiving corps is poised to become even more formidable.
