Green Bay placed an emphasis on improving a pass rush that made just 34 sacks last season.

The Packers selected Iowa edge rusher Lukas Van Ness in the first round before adding defensive lineman Colby Wooden and Karl Brooks on Day 3. Wooden and Brooks will likely play interior positions in Green Bay's defense, although both could line up outside if needed. All three draft picks are excellent pass rushers.

Even if Wooden and Brooks aren't considered edge rushers, it's tough to see how Jonathan Garvin fits into the Packers' depth chart.

When healthy, Green Bay's top three edge rushers will be Rashan Gary, Preston Smith, and Van Ness. Second-year Kingsley Enagbare started seven games as a rookie, while in-season addition Justin Hollins made 2.5 sacks in six games, earning him a new contract this offseason.

Green Bay has at least five edge defenders ahead of Garvin on the depth chart, and that's not including Wooden and Brooks, who can also shift outside.

The Packers have done a nice job of strengthening their pass-rush depth in the draft. They needed to support starters Gary and Smith, and they have achieved this. Garvin will need to impress at training camp to have a shot at making the roster.
