4. Lukas Van Ness

It's early, but general manager Brian Gutekunst has to be thrilled with the contributions from the Packers' rookie class so far this season. And that includes first-round pick Lukas Van Ness.

According to Pro Football Reference, Van Ness has made one sack, one quarterback hit, three pressures, and two hurries. Importantly, he hasn't missed any tackles. Van Ness' athleticism and speed have been on full display in the Packers' opening two contests despite only playing around a third of the team's defensive snaps.

His role will grow as the season goes on, especially if the first-round pick continues to make an impact.

The Packers already have a deep pass rush. If Van Ness can keep improving, he has star potential.

Rashan Gary is being eased back after a significant injury, but he already looks unstoppable. If Van Ness takes his game to an even higher level, the Packers could have a dominant pass-rush duo later in the season.

The early signs for the Packers' pass rush are promising. With Gary's snap counts increasing and Van Ness already showing what he can do, the sky is the limit for this pass rush, and that's great news for the Packers.
