The NFL’s best guards, No. 6: Josh Sitton, Packers

Debate amongst yourselves, Packers fans, which of your two guards belongs on the top-10 list. Maybe the answer is both. Sitton had been atop the Green Bay pecking order heading into 2015, maintaining an edge on longtime partner in crime T.J. Lang. It was Lang, though, who was the steadier player throughout last season as both he and Sitton battled lingering injuries. Sitton still managed to play all but eight of his team’s offensive snaps last year, even kicking out to offensive tackle when injuries ravaged the Packers late in the regular season. (That move, as it turned out, was an awful misstep by the coaching staff.) Still, when he is 100% healthy, Sitton is an All-Pro-level force. He reminded everyone of that in the postseason, saving his best for last in a win over Washington and an excellent outing against a very good Arizona front.
