Rodgers voted Top 10 in NFL by players

August 01, 2019 - 3:25 pm

Aaron Rodgers had what has been considered by many a "down year" last season.

4,442 yards, 25 touchdowns, two interceptions, a 62.3 completion percentage and a 97.6 quarterback rating. Of course, the Packers' 6-9-1 record overshadowed any statistic success or struggle that Rodgers endured. Injuries be damned (Rodgers played through a leg fracture and an MCL sprain) and numbers aside, his play and reputation still garnered the respect and admiration of his peers. The Packers' quarterback was voted the No. 8 overall player in the NFL as voted on by his peers.

It is Rodgers' fifth consecutive Top 10 finish and seventh Top 10 finish since the rankings began in 2011. His lowest ranking has been 11th in 2014 and 2011. He was the highest-ranked of three Packers to make the 2019 list joining Davante Adams (No. 35) and David Bakhtiari (No. 43) in the peer vote. 

Rodgers was the fourth-ranked quarterback, Adams was the eighth-ranked wide receiver and Bakhtiari was the top-ranked offensive lineman. 

Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald was voted the No. 1 overall player.
