Receiver Jordy Nelson (No. 18), running back Eddie Lacy (No. 24) and quarterback Aaron Rodgers (No. 31) represented the Packers in the countdown, which NFL Network revealed this past week.

Nelson missed all of last season with a knee injury, but was coming off a Pro Bowl season in 2014 in which he set career highs in both receptions (98) and receiving yards (1,519) with 13 touchdowns.

Rodgers completed 347-of-572 passes for 3,821 yards, 31 touchdowns and eight interceptions last season. He also added 344 rushing yards (fifth most among quarterbacks) and a touchdown.

Lacy has gained nearly 4,000 yards from scrimmage in his first three NFL seasons with 29 touchdowns. He ranks third among running backs in rushing yards (3,075) and fourth in rushing touchdowns (23) since 2013.
