2023 NFL Power Rankings: Green Bay Packers

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 3 roundup for the Green Bay Packers in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 19

Player: RB AJ Dillon
Current contract situation: Under contract through the 2023 season

Dillon is in the final season of his rookie contract and is playing for his future this season -- whether it's in Green Bay or elsewhere -- but it's not off to the greatest start. He had a chance to make a statement last Sunday with Aaron Jones out, and Dillon managed just 3.7 yards per carry. He could have changed the game with 1 yard, but he was stuffed on a third-and-1 run in the fourth quarter. -- Rob Demovsky

NFL.com -- Rank: 18

It didn't exactly feel like the Packers blew Sunday's game against the Falcons, but they led by 12 points with 12 minutes left. And though it felt like Jordan Love getting the ball back with 57 seconds remaining and a chance to win it would be the real start of his legend in Green Bay, that wasn't meant to be. There were plenty of Packers deficiencies in the game (ahem, run defense), but for as well as Love played, he and the offense stalled late with a reasonable chance to win. After a slow start, Love led the Packers on four straight scoring drives (not counting the end-of-half kneel-down) in the second and third quarters. In the fourth quarter, Green Bay's offense totaled 7 net yards on 10 plays.

2023 NFL Predictions: NFC North

Before the start of the season, we will post NFL division-by-division predictions for the 2023 NFL regular season and postseason.

Jordan Love: Both Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers created (what many would describe as unnecessary) drama towards the tail end of their Packer tenures, but they also provided the franchise with tremendous stability at the position for three decades. Packers coach Matt LaFleur has talked up Love's "complete command" of Green Bay's offense, but growing pains should be expected as the franchise transitions to its next era. The team loaded up on several Day 2 pass catchers (Luke Musgrave, Jayden Reed, Tucker Kraft, etc.) in the draft to help support his long-term growth.

Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft, we will update our Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Green Bay Packers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Green Bay Packers:

EDSFootball - Kevin Hanson (5/9)

8. Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

While Alabama didn't have any first-round defensive backs in 2023, the Lions got a steal with Brian Branch in the middle of Round 2. Assuming he declares after his junior season, McKinstry would be a virtual first-round lock and the early favorite to be CB1. The former five-star recruit has an enticing blend of size, athleticism, instincts and ball skills, and he's also an outstanding punt returner (15.8 yards per return in 2022).

CBS Sports - Josh Edwards (5/8)

13. Calen Bullock, S, USC

Green Bay's safety play has been underwhelming so it adds competition.

ESPN - Todd McShay (5/4)

13. Jer'Zhan Newton, IDL, Illinois

Newton has great tape. He's a very powerful and active 3-technique with upper-body snap, and he would immediately plug into the middle of the Packers' defense. Green Bay lost Jarran Reed and Dean Lowry off the defensive line, but I could see Newton working well alongside Kenny Clark to fill against the run and penetrate the backfield. He had 18 run stops last season while adding 13.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks.

27. Calen Bullock, S, USC

No, this pick isn't quite under the Packers control just yet. But if the Jets are picking at No. 27 and making the playoffs, I think it's a safe bet that Aaron Rodgers played 65% of the snaps in the 2023 season, the qualifier for the second-round conditional pick to become a Day 1 selection. So we're giving this one to Green Bay, who lands a 6-foot-3 playmaker in the secondary here. Bullock has seven interceptions over two years, including five in 2022. Darnell Savage, Tarvarius Moore and Rudy Ford are all playing out the final years of their current deals, so there's a hole at safety.
