The Packers attempted to address their defense in the previous draft, and if their selections develop and play to their full potential, I think we could be back to one of the top pass-rushing teams. We made some good selections at every level of our defense, but one theme remained, we needed to improve our tackling. Nick Perry, Casey Hayward, Mike Daniels, Jerron McMillian, Jerel Worthy, and Terrell Manning were all very solid tacklers, however there have been some questions on where they will fit in, I predict all six of these players will be starting by the end of the season whether in situations or in our base 3-4 defense.
