Defensive line (5)

Kenny Clark, Devonte Wyatt, T.J. Slaton, Colby Wooden, Karl Brooks

Brian Gutekunst has also done an excellent job of strengthening the defensive line depth. Pro Bowler Kenny Clark is joined by three draft picks from the past two offseasons.

Devonte Wyatt was a first-round choice a year ago and should see his snaps increase significantly this season.

Colby Wooden and Karl Brooks both offer positional versatility. They are both talented pass rushers. Wooden made six sacks last season, Brooks had 10. According to Pro Football Focus, Brooks had 69 pressures last year.

After Jarran Reed and Dean Lowry left in free agency, the Packers lacked depth along the defensive line. Drafting Wooden and Brooks goes a long way to fixing that, and it will be interesting to see where the Packers have them line up.

Green Bay could still choose to sign an affordable free agent for added depth, but it's not a desperate need. Brian Gutekunst deserves credit for adding two talented players on Day 3, who could both end up playing significant snaps for the Packers early in their careers.

The defensive line has a lot of potential in the coming seasons. Great work by the Packers in the draft.
