Where Rodgers, Lacy and Nelson Rank All-Time
The Packers are lucky enough to employ several players considered to be among the all-time greats at their positions. Each of them figures to make big progress up the career leaderboards this year, both with the Packers and with the NFL at large. Let's take a quick look.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers is currently 35th in NFL history with 32,399 yards. Another 4,000 yard season would easily put him in the top 25. Rodgers is 17th in passing touchdowns with 257, and even another 31 touchdown campaign like last season could see him climb as high as 12th.
Running back Eddie Lacy
Eddie Lacy currently sits at number twelve in Packers history with 3,075 rushing yards. If he returns to form and posts another 1,100 yard season, he could finish the year in the top five all time, nudging just past Ryan Grant.
Wide receiver Jordy Nelson
Jordy Nelson also can make some big jumps up the leaderboard this year. His 400 career receptions are good for eighth all-time right now, but with 49 catches this season, he'll climb past Boyd Dowler into the top five. Another 1,000 receiving yards would get him into the top five in that category as well. He needs five touchdown catches to bump Greg Jennings out of the top five.
