The Top Ten
1 Za’Darius Smith is Named a First Team All-Pro

Smith made himself known in his first season with the Packers, racking up 13.5 sacks, leading the NFL in quarterback pressures, and earning his first Pro Bowl. Still, there's one more thing he needs to do: be named to an All-Pro team. Now that he has a full year of experience in Mike Pettine's defense, I think Smith will be named a First Team All-Pro and may even have more sacks than last season.

2 Packers Win the Division at 11-5 The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division. The Packers have won 4 Super Bowls and 13 NFL championships.

All things considered, I believe the Packers will win the division. The Bears and Lions won't challenge, but the Vikings will be close behind. Week 1 will be a critical game between the two teams.

3 Aaron Jones Rushes for Under 1,000 Yards

The reason I see this happening is A.J. Dillon, drafted in the second round of this year's draft. Jones will still get the bulk of the carries, but expect Dillon to play more as the season progresses. I don't expect Jones to have the same production he did last season, but he will still be a star on this Packers offense.

4 Davante Adams Has the Best Season of His Career Davante Lavell Adams is an American football wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

As it currently stands, 2018 was the best season for Davante Adams, when he racked up 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns. Being by far the best wide receiver the Packers have, expect Aaron Rodgers to target him heavily. That will lead to receptions, which will produce yards and touchdowns. Adams could also make his fourth straight Pro Bowl.

5 Darnell Savage Has a Breakout Season

Savage flashed potential as a free safety and first-round rookie last season, picking off two passes. Now, with more experience in the system, I believe Savage will become a ballhawk like he was at Maryland. Pairing with Adrian Amos gives the Packers a strong safety duo.

6 Elgton Jenkins Makes His First Pro Bowl and All-Pro Teams

Jenkins was a rookie second-round pick last season and played like a longtime veteran. He could have easily been named to the Pro Bowl, but rookie offensive linemen are generally overlooked. Going into his second season at left guard, Jenkins has caught the attention of more people. I think he will not only make the Pro Bowl in 2020 but also make one of the All-Pro teams. He has a bright future ahead.

7 The Run Defense Does Not Improve

The Packers did sign Christian Kirksey and draft Kamal Martin to help at inside linebacker, but what else is there? The defensive line is the same as last season, with Kenny Clark being the only elite player. I wish they would sign someone like Snacks Harrison. I don't see this run defense improving in 2020, and we will face Raheem Mostert again this season.

8 Christian Kirksey Stays Healthy

I have high hopes for Kirksey being an upgrade over Blake Martinez. Kirksey was pretty good for the Browns in his first few healthy seasons, but injuries have hampered him the last two. Now, with a new team, Kirksey may stay healthier. I think he will.

9 Jaire Alexander Has Four Interceptions

Alexander has already become a great cornerback in the NFL, but a problem for him has been dropped interceptions. He has only three so far in his two-year career, with several more that were dropped. This season, I believe Alexander will fix that issue and record four interceptions, leading the team in that category and possibly making his first Pro Bowl.

10 David Bakhtiari Gets a Contract Extension and is Named a First Team All-Pro

Bakhtiari didn't have a great season last year, but I expect him to bounce back. He is entering a contract year and is arguably the best left tackle in the NFL. I believe the Packers will extend him, and he will also earn his second First Team All-Pro nod. If he secures his fifth All-Pro nod, then maybe he will start down a Hall of Fame trajectory. I'm not saying Bakhtiari will definitely be a Hall of Famer. The chances of that are small right now, but he still has many years left to play, and anything can happen. We will wait and see.
