Having one of the league's best quarterbacks is always going to put a floor on your roster rankings, that's just how important the position is in today's NFL.
Aaron Rodgers was at his best last year when healthy, and if you extrapolate his performance over the full season, he would have been looking at topping 5,000 passing yards with 34 touchdowns and just 12 picks. James Jones may have left in free agency, but Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are formidable receivers who return, and Jarrett Boykin impressed in limited opportunities this past season, forcing missed tackles at a higher rate than any other receiver after the catch.
The team yet again tried to address the pass rush opposite Clay Matthews, this time with a veteran in Julius Peppers, but it would take a turnaround in his performance to prove that decision wise. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was the 19th-best player on Mel Kiper's Big Board, and the best safety available in the draft, and should add to a talented secondary.
