David Bakhtiari's New Contract Is Already a Bargain

One of the unsung heroes of this Packers’ season has to be left tackle David Bakhtiari. He’s been an anchor on the left side of the offensive line, despite playing alongside relative newcomer Lane Taylor.

My skepticism of Pro Football Focus is well documented, but it’s still worth noting that he’s PFF’s top rated pass blocking left tackle. That he’s already this good despite being just four years removed from being the 109th pick in the draft is incredible. That he’s only 25 is nothing short of amazing.

David Bakhtiari has been a huge part of the Packers’ success this year, and given how quickly salaries tend to rise for a position group once someone signs a new big deal, it won’t be long before Bakhtiari’s recent contract extension is an absolute bargain.
