Standout: Kingsley Enagbare

Coming off a Week 5 performance against the Raiders where Kingsley posted three tackles, two tackles for loss, and one sack, he followed that up with another excellent game against Denver.

Rashan Gary was more productive generating pressure, registering six pressures, but Enagbare posted three pressures and a quarterback hit himself. He is building momentum and quietly posting top defensive performances in recent weeks.

Last season as a rookie, Enagbare flashed potential as a pass rusher, and he's picked a stellar time to gain steam in year two. With the trade deadline looming and the Packers likely positioned as sellers - if they decide to make any moves - the team may be more inclined to explore options to move Preston Smith in favor of youngsters like Enagbare or rookies Lukas Van Ness and Brenton Cox.

Dud: Rasheed Walker

Walker had himself a rough outing. After showing promise early in the season while taking over for injured Bakhtiari, Walker's performances have been questionable the past few weeks.

Walker allowed three pressures against Denver, tied with Runyan for most on the week.

Undoubtedly, the seventh-round pick has exceeded expectations for this season while taking over for an All-Pro.

However, since Week 4, Walker has struggled tremendously. While the pressures allowed have racked up, his run-blocking has struggling to find consistency as well.

With Nijman consuming roughly $4 million against the Packers' cap sitting on the bench, there's a chance Nijman may replace Walker at left tackle if the Packers shake up their offensive line. In that case, Caleb Jones would be a name to watch slide in at right tackle if Tom moves down to center in a corresponding move.
