8. Dean Lowry
After signing a new contract extension last summer, Dean Lowry didn’t meet expectations for much of the 2019 season. He started all 16 games but failed to make a significant impact up front. The Packers defensive line struggled for much of the year, particularly against the run. Lowry finished the season with 47 tackles.
Outside of a few good performances, which helped the Packers’ run defense improve, he was inconsistent. After getting paid last offseason, Lowry needs to step up in 2020.
7. Chandon Sullivan
The Packers have put a lot of faith in Chandon Sullivan. And understandably so. He impressed when given an opportunity last season, breaking up six passes, intercepting one, and forcing a fumble. He also earned the fourth-highest Pro Football Focus grade among all Packers defenders last season.
Sullivan is the most likely candidate to replace Tramon Williams in the slot. But can he go from being a role player in the secondary to one of the top three cornerbacks? If the answer is yes, Sullivan could become a huge part of the defensive backfield moving forward. But if Sullivan doesn’t build on last season, the Packers don’t have too many options at cornerback. The depth is somewhat concerning behind the top three.
