Packers Morning Buzz: Look for a 'high-flying' Green Bay offense
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com.
We'll start with Chris Wesseling of NFL.com projecting the NFL's top 10 "high-flying offenses" for 2019. Would you expect the Packers to make this elite ranking, given the arrival of a new coach and questions at receiver and on the offensive line? The Packers make it – barely – at No. 10.
Here's Wesseling's assessment:
10) Green Bay Packers
Quarterback: A | Aaron Rodgers, DeShone Kizer
Backfield: B- | Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, Dexter Williams, Kapri Bibbs
Receiving corps: B | Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jimmy Graham(TE), Equanimeous St. Brown, J'Mon Moore, Trevor Davis, Jace Sternberger (TE)
Offensive line: B+ | David Bakhtiari, Bryan Bulaga, Lane Taylor, Billy Turner, Corey Linsley, Justin McCray, Jason Spriggs, Elgton Jenkins
