3. Inside Linebacker
De’Vondre Campbell had an impressive start to the season before his unfortunate ankle injury. He and Quay Walker formed a strong tandem, with Campbell’s football intelligence shining through in play diagnosis, and Walker showcasing his remarkable athleticism. The Packers’ linebacker unit faced adversity with Campbell’s injury and has room for improvement, particularly in defending against the run.
Jordan Love has shown he belongs in the NFL, demonstrating a moxy and calmness on offense. Clearly, the team respects him as a leader and wants to rally behind him. What knocks him down a few pegs in these rankings is his accuracy. He ranks at the bottom of the NFL in completion percentage and needs to work on making the easy throws to keep the offense moving.
5. Offensive Line
It was hard to grade the offensive line as a whole, considering how well they’ve generally fared in pass protection and how poorly they’ve played in run blocking. They got beat up against the Lions, but were good in protecting Love in the first three games. Their major weakness remains in the running game, where they continue to let defenders get into the backfield.
