Top 10 Pass Catchers in the Aaron Rodgers Era

Aaron Rodgers has been the Green Bay Packers starting QB since 2008 and over those 13 seasons, he’s had many players catch passes from his Hall of Fame right arm. While players like Justin Perillo, Jarrett Boykin and Myles White had their moment in the sun, this list is the Top 10 Pass Catchers in the career of Aaron Rodgers, which consists of WR’s, RB’s and TE’s.

10) Allen Lazard

Lazard, in a little over 1.5 years with the Packers, has turned into a reliable receiver who Rodgers trusts. Although there are players in the Rodgers era that have more receptions than Lazard currently does, he’s an ascending talent that just needs time. If Rodgers is back in Green Bay for the 2021 season, expect a really nice year from Lazard.

9) Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Similar to Lazard, Valdes-Scantling is still young in his career and is improving as a player. MVS has 97 regular season catches for 1,723 yards and 10 touchdowns in his 3 seasons with the Packers.

8) Aaron Jones

Sticking with the theme of players currently on the team, RB Aaron Jones checks in at 8th on this list. Jones is not just reliable out of the backfield, he’s a threat. Additionally, he can be split out wide and match up on the boundary.

7) Donald Driver

Donald Driver, a Packers legend, played in Green Bay from 1999-2012. Most of his prime years were with Brett Favre at QB but Rodgers got to play with him starting in 2008. In Rodgers’ first two seasons as the starting QB, Driver was a huge go-to option for #12. In 2008, Driver had 74 receptions for 1,012 yards and 5 touchdowns. He followed that up in 2009 with 70 catches for 1,061 yards and 6 touchdowns. In 2010, Driver had 51 receptions en route to a Super Bowl Championship.

6 Jermichael Finley

If not for a career-ending injury in 2013, there’s no telling how good the Rodgers-Finley connection could have been in years to come. Finley, the big bodied TE from the University of Texas, played with the Packers from 2008-2013. Finley had 3 seasons of 55+ receptions and finished his career with 20 regular season touchdowns.

5) James Jones

Solid, dependable, reliable and a touchdown machine. Jones, a 3rd round draft pick in 2007, played his rookie season with Brett Favre and then played with Aaron Rodgers from 2008-2013 and 2015. The Rodgers-Jones connection saw 42 regular season touchdowns and several others in the postseason. Jones is an underrated Packer that made a huge impact during his time in Green Bay.

4) Randall Cobb

A Green Bay Packer from 2011-2018, Cobb was the ultimate safety blanket and a best friend of Rodgers. During his 8 seasons with the Packers, Cobb amassed 470 receptions and 41 receiving touchdowns.

3) Greg Jennings

Explosive, dynamic and one of the top WR’s in the game during the height of his career. Rodgers and Jennings played together from 2008-2012. In those 5 seasons, Jennings had 2 seasons of 1,200 or more receiving yards.

2) Jordy Nelson

Best Friends

1) Davante Adams

Adams, a Packer since 2014, has now spent 7 seasons in Green Bay. Arguably the best WR in football, he easily checks in at #1 on the list as he works towards a Gold Jacket and a statue in Canton, OH at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
