Top Ten Best Green Bay Packers Players Going Into the 2023 NFL SeasonThis year will be a major turning point for the franchise, transitioning to a new starting quarterback in Jordan Love for the first time since Aaron Rodgers took over in 2008. It might be a retooling year, but nevertheless, this team still has talent. Here, we’re looking at the top ten best Green Bay Packers players going into the 2023 NFL season.
Now one of the longest-tenured players on the Packers, Alexander will soon step into a major leadership role on a young team, and he has the talent to back up his talk. He consistently blanketed receivers last season, his most impressive performance being when he completely shut down Justin Jefferson in Week 17. He goes into this season as a multi-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro, looking to anchor a defense that really needs a good season.
I feel like people have begun to overlook Bakh in the last few seasons because of his knee injury. However, the facts are as follows: he played in 11 games last season, and in those games, he was pretty much his old, elite self. He's still a top-ten left tackle in the NFL, even if he's not earning Pro Bowls or All-Pro honors anymore.
Before suffering a torn ACL last season, Gary was having a Pro Bowl-level season. Now, going into the final year of his rookie deal, Gary looks to reaffirm his dominance by coming back from injury and earning a major payday.
Earning his second Pro Bowl last season, Jenkins came back from an ACL injury fired up. Now, with a fresh payday, the left guard anchors a strong left side of the offensive line in Green Bay.
Jones rushed for a career high in yards last season and now returns for his seventh season with the Packers on a pay-cut deal. He is third all-time on the team's rushing yards list. With Jordan Love assuming the starting quarterback role this season, Jones' responsibility in the offense has surged.
Last season was a down season by Clark's standards, but he still goes into this year as one of the better nose tackles in the NFL.
Like Clark, Campbell experienced a down year in 2022, but the former first-team All-Pro also exhibited at times last year why he got paid.
After a rough start to last season, the young receiver heads into year 2 as the #1 receiver on the team and reflects on his successes later in the season. He is going to be critical in Jordan Love's development in 2023.
The first-team All-Pro kick returner holds a major amount of value on special teams, but don't discount his ability on defense either. Nixon has shown himself to be a capable slot defender and looks to spend quite a bit of time there this season.
Smith remains as steady and consistent as ever as a pass rusher. Now, he will serve as a mentor to first-round pick Lukas Van Ness.
