4 Green Bay Packers Players to Shine This NFL 2022-2023 season

The Green Bay Packers are going to need a reliable defense to make sure that they get through the 22/23 NFL season in the most positive manner. Not only have they re-signed some of their biggest defensive free agents, but two of their top draft picks will surely help them field a solid defensive front seven for the coming season. The Green Bay Packers have also returned the bulk of their players for this season’s games, including some of the key leaders, both on and off the field.

However, with pre-season still yet to start, and with the official NFL season starting in September, we’re still far away from seeing the full team in action to its maximum potential. Until then we’re just going to have to contain all our excitement and wait for our predictions to be proven right or wrong by watching the games. While some supporters are crazy about the pre-season matches (usually the fantasy football fanatics looking out for players to draft in their fantasy squad), there are others who seem to be completely disinterested or others that would just want to get their minds off football before the season starts. These types of supporters are usually the ones that completely block out football by distracting themselves by trying out new activities. For example, some might try out different types of sports during this period, others might want to further explore the video gaming world by trying out new video games, while others might just want to further explore the casino world by discovering new game categories like game show casino games and ask themselves questions like ‘where can I play crazy time’. In short, many fans are just trying to kill time by looking for all sorts of distractions before the official season finally starts.

Once the season begins, however, the fans all come together to cheer on their favorite team. The excitement level is high for Packers fans due to all the key returning players this season. Therefore, let’s look at four players we think are going to be a major part of the team's success this season.

  1. Rashan Gary

Rashan Gary is the only person on the list who wasn’t voted to be a defensive captain but is still earning considerable respect for his play on the field. He managed to step up in the absence of Za’Darius Smith last season but is also making his own mark on the game with his high standards and motivation. The man is amazing with his off-the-field work ethic, and that has honestly played a major role in his successes. It is a strong trait that he has proven he can model for teammates and encourage them to do well.

  1. Kenny Clark

Kenny Clark is one of the unsung heroes of the era, quietly going about his work in the defensive line and not going too high or too low. He anchors the defensive line and is finally getting a bit of help - however, there’s no reason why that should detract from his role as a leader. There is no denying that his teammates are appreciative of his leadership skills, so if he is voted as the captain once more, it won’t be a big surprise.

  1. Adrian Amos

Back in 2019, the Packers signed Adrian Amos and he proved to be a great addition to the team. As a man, he’s a powerful mentor figure in the secondary and has always given a steady hand to people like Darnell Savage and all the backup safeties. This has earned him a glowing reputation both off the pitch and on it. It’s definitely a good pick for a veteran in the locker room.

  1. Jaire Alexander

Jaire Alexander is one of those loud and in-your-face type players who will make a difference on any team he is on. He’s arguably the heart and soul of the D and was missed last season. His energy is incredible and he holds all of his teammates to the same high standards. It’s nice to see him back where he belongs.

Final Thoughts

The Packers have a lot of star talent to help guide them to victory this NFL season. All these players are amazing veterans who can bring a wealth of experience to the game. It’s nice to see that they are prepared to commit to helping improve the standard of play, and it will hopefully put the team in a strong position for the future. It’ll just be interesting to stop and see how these players are effectively utilized, and how their skills are best drawn out.

Great names on that list. I would have included one of our running backs but could not decide which one.

I think Devondre Campbell and Stokes are among the keys for success this season. Gary, Clark and Alexander are obvious choices. However we need Campbell to be a major force in our run defense, especially if the revamped DL eats up blockers. Teams will not throw towards Alexander so it will be critical for Stokes to play solidly and hold down his side of the field to enable our defense to get off the field.

I’m looking forward to our best defensive team since 2010
SB team. Hopefully we remain healthy. Thanks, Since ‘61

Agreed. It would also help if Stokes showed better ball skills, he's going to get a lot of opportunities.
