3. Rashan Gary

When Rashan Gary was selected with the 12th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, most analysts expected him to come along slowly. Despite possessing all the physical tools in the world, Gary’s on the field production at Michigan didn’t line up. It was expected to be more of the same in the NFL until Gary could hone in his special physical gifts.

Unfortunately, fans didn’t anticipate it would be this slow-moving for the rookie. Although he’s slowly ramped up his playing time, Gary has played less than 30 percent of the team’s defensive stats in three of the five games. That’s not exactly what everyone was hoping for.

Gary has flashed somewhat during his time on the field, as he’s recorded one sack, eight tackles and one quarterback hit. Regardless, Green Bay may need more out of him in both the run and pass game for their defense to truly reach elite status. As a high first-round pick, he won’t get a pass for very long.
