This week we will look at the Packers offensive lineman, and try to guess on who will be the starters come week 1. With a few additions this offseason and the return of Cole Madison, the packers have plenty of options.
This is 100% a lock, when speaking of the best left tackle in the NFL. Protecting Rodger’s blind side is the upmost importance, and D-Bak does a tremendous job at doing just that. Look for another all pro season for David.
A 2nd round pick this year, Jenkins would be considered one of the best, if entering as a guard. His best position is at center but he can easily replace Lane Taylor at left guard. With experience at every position on the line in college, Jenkins could easily replace Linsley at center if he were to go down and backup Taylor would fill in at left guard.
Another elite player on the line, Linsley is a great center who had an amazing season last year and will look to continue that this upcoming season.
A free agent pickup this year, Turner will likely start at right guard but has the versatility to play right tackle in a pinch if Bulaga were to go down. Turner is a huge upgrade at the position and will provide a much needed jolt to the o-line.
Packers fans seem to forget that when healthy, Bulaga is one of the best right tackles in the NFL. Yes, he gets hurt but the guy plays through a lot also. He doesn’t deserve a pay cut, he deserves an extension from the Packers.
The offensive line will definitely be a lot better this year with some much needed depth in waiting, just in case a starter were to go down. The most important thing is to keep #12 upright, and this unit will make sure that happens.
