4. CB Tramon Williams

Tramon Williams will one day be in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.

Williams spent the first eight years of his career in Green Bay. He made 115 pass defenses, 28 interceptions, and one pick-six in that time. He was a Pro Bowler in 2010 and played a vital role in the team’s Super Bowl run, making three interceptions and a pick-six during that postseason.

He returned to Green Bay for two more seasons in 2018, making 10 pass defenses and two interceptions.

How would Tramon Williams help 2022 Packers?

Gives the Packers a natural slot cornerback.

While cornerback isn’t a huge need for the Packers, Williams is a natural in the slot. In his final season in Green Bay in 2019, Williams was one of the top slot corners in the NFL.

Any of Jaire Alexander, Rasul Douglas, or Eric Stokes could rotate into the slot this year. Darnell Savage could also possibly play there.

But Williams was a natural fit and would be a great choice in the “star” position of Joe Barry’s defense.

In his prime, Williams regularly made pass defenses and interceptions, and he saved some of his best football for the games that mattered most.

The Packers have a strong top three at corner, but imagine Williams lining up in the slot.
