3. Kingsley Enagbare, EDGE
After some of the things we saw in his rookie season, it shouldn't come as a major shock that Kingsley Enagbare looks like one of the most improved young players for the Packers right now defensively.
Enagbare was a fifth-round pick in 2022 and most NFL Draft fans couldn't believe what they were seeing. It was clear at the time that Brian Gutekunst got a tremendous value here and Enagbare showed that value by playing in all 17 games last season with 7 starts, 3.0 sacks, 8 QB hits, and 5 tackles for loss, and 3 passes defensed. He did that with just 465 total defensive snaps.
If what we saw against the Patriots is any indication, Kingsley Enagbare looks poised for an increased role in the Green Bay Packers pass rush rotation this coming season.
This Green Bay Packers defensive front is just insanely talented. When Rashan Gary is back to full strength, Green Bay is just going to be able to attack from every angle at any juncture of the game with so much talent and depth on both the defensive line and off the edge.
Enagbare may not get a ton more snaps this year than he did last year. Somewhere between 45-55 percent (barring injury) would make sense. But can he be more effective in those snaps than he was last year? The Packers are fixin' to find out.
Enagbare's talent won't be able to be wasted on the sideline.
If the Packers can bring pressure off the edge in waves all season, this team is going to be way more competitive than most NFL fans and analysts assume they're going to be.
