Devonder Campbell and Messenger Douglas: Packers Campbell signed a $2 million deal in June and fired Douglas from the Cardinals’ coaching staff in October. The two eventually played huge roles in the Packers’ 13-win season. Campbell was the first All-Pro player in the linebacker, and the team’s first selection for a center (within linebacker) since 1966. He’s played big after big play, especially early in the season, and has been solid throughout the year as an athlete, he does The whole linebacker has lacked the Packers for years. Douglas led the team with five interceptions and made game-changing plays in at least four different victories, including pick-up winner Keeler Murray in Arizona, two pick-six games and a two-interception performance against Baker Mayfield.

Aaron Rodgers to Davante Adams: Connection may have faltered late in the Division round loss, but there’s no doubt that Rodgers and Adams were amazing again in 2021. Adams had 123 passes for 1,553 yards, and both teams are scoring. Rodgers threw 11 touchdown passes to Adams and earned a passing rating of 123.9 when targeting the future of his first All-Pro team. There were many special moments. After 37 seconds in San Francisco, the pair called twice for 42 yards to set up the game-winning field goal. Rodgers, who threw only 37 touchdown passes and four interceptions, is the NFL Player of the Year once again.

The rise of Rashan is underway: In his third season, Gary took a giant step in his development and emerged as a legitimate game changer. He produced 86 total pressures, 31 quarterbacks and 11.5 sacks in 17 games, including the playoffs. An effective and troublesome part-time player behind Zadarius Smith and Preston Smith last season, Gary took on a full-time role after Zadarius Smith was injured and has become one of the NFL’s most disruptive players of all time. Still only 24 years old, Gary may be one of the best defensive players in the game for a long time.

Bilateral running back: Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon have proven to be one of the best backfield NFL teams. Together, the pair created 2,306 total yards and 17 total touchdowns. Dillon led the way in the rush (803), while Jones scored 10 total touchdowns and went over 1,000 total yards for the third consecutive season. Dillon’s physical style and receptiveness were in perfect harmony with Jones, a home-run hitter with toughness and talent that works it all. Both backs gained over 1,000 total yards.

Eric Stokes: The rookie selection in the first round was great. He made his way onto the field early in the year and eventually took over the No. 1 corner back when Gere Alexander went down. He only intercepted one pass, but the opposing midfielders had a lot of trouble finding completions versus covering him. By almost all accounts, he was one of the best defensive rookies in the NFL this year. Stokes and Alexander could be a standout back-corner duo for years to come.

transformations: Al Hazm turned the ball only 13 times, and they tied for the first time in the NFL. 37 turnover over the past three seasons has been tied to the lowest number in a three-year period in league history. Rodgers threw only four picks, and the Packers passed the ball away only six times (the tie for the fewest in team history). During the regular season, the Packers were 11-0 when getting at least one meal.
