4 of 5

Defensive line: Kenny Clark

Kenny Clark is one of the best at his position in the league. He is a two-time Pro Bowler and has made 90 starts since 2017. Clark is dominant against the run and pass.

Defensive line: Devonte Wyatt

With Jarran Reed and Dean Lowry gone, Devonte Wyatt gets his opportunity in the starting lineup. He impressed as a rookie. When his snap counts increased in the final three games, Wyatt stepped up with one sack and two quarterback hits, and he forced a fumble. Wyatt is ready.

Linebacker: Rashan Gary

Rashan Gary's 2022 season was cut short due to injury, but he was on pace for double-digit sacks for the first time in his career. Gary's return is huge for this defense.

Linebacker: De'Vondre Campbell

De'Vondre Campbell was a first-team All-Pro in 2021 and has started 29 games in his two seasons with the Packers. He adds experience to the defense, and at his best, he can reach an All-Pro level.

Linebacker: Quay Walker

Quay Walker is a player to watch this season. He had an up-and-down rookie year but showed a ton of potential. If he can become more consistent, Walker can be a Pro Bowler.

Linebacker: Preston Smith

Even after drafting Lukas Van Ness in the first round, the Packers will likely continue to start with Preston Smith. Smith is a solid starter. He rarely misses time and has made 17.5 sacks and 37 quarterback hits over the past two seasons.
