Aaron Rodgers (6-2, 225; ninth season): The 2010 Super Bowl MVP and 2011 NFL MVP had another brilliant season and is on course for the Hall of Fame. He led the league with a passer rating of 108.0, and was among the leaders with 67.2 percent accuracy, 39 touchdowns and 4,295 yards. He signed a contract extension through 2019, which is cap-friendly — relatively speaking — with cap charges ranging from $17.9 million in 2014 to $21 million in 2019.
Graham Harrell (6-2, 215; second season): Harrell played in the first four games of his career. His first career snap was a disaster, when he and center Jeff Saturday got tangled up and he fumbled near the goal line against New Orleans. In all, he completed 2-of-4 passes for 20 yards. He continues to get better physically.
B.J. Coleman (6-3, 231; first season): A seventh-round pick in 2012, Coleman spent the season having his mechanics retooled on the practice squad. He's a strong-armed passer with a gung-ho attitude. He had a strong ending to the offseason practices. Now, he needs to show that he's significantly closed the gap on Harrell with the mental side of the game.
Matt Brown (6-3, 225; rookie/UDFA): Brown was the Missouri Valley Conference's offensive player of the year, rewriting the school record book with 62.0 percent accuracy, 3,370 yards, 27 touchdown passes, 34 total touchdowns. Doesn't throw the prettiest of balls.
Total: 4. On 2012 opening roster: 2 (Harrell, Rodgers).
Final prediction: 2 (Coleman, Rodgers).
