4. Tyler Lancaster, DL
Tyler Lancaster was a three-year starter at Northwestern and that’s probably the biggest advantage he carries into training camp. He knows how to battle every day and every snap and will provide some extra depth at the end of the defensive line for the Packers.
Throughout his college career, he recorded 101 total tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. His best season came in 2017 when he recorded 40 tackles, nine for loss and two tackles. That showed he made steady improvement every season and likely hasn’t hit his peak yet.
At 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds he has decent size for the line and should be able to line up at any of the three positions, although he’s probably best suited for one of the end positions. The Packers are tough at the top of their line depth chart, but could use another one or two guys to play sparingly. Lancaster could prove to be that guy.
