Packers Who Have Gone Missing: Devonte Wyatt
When training camp began, Devonte Wyatt lined up next to Kenny Clark on passing downs and TJ Slaton replaced Wyatt on rushing downs. Now, it’s Slaton in there for both scenarios.
Wyatt’s talent is undeniable. He has an elite burst and can generate pressure on occasion. It’s the on occasion that’s the issue, as he can disappear for long stretches at a time. Through two preseason games, he has a putrid 37.1 PFF grade, the third-lowest on the defense. This includes more missed tackles than quarterback pressures.
It’s just a small sample size, but there’s a reason the coaching staff has already moved Slaton ahead of him on the depth chart. The Packers don’t have proven depth on the defensive line and need Wyatt to step up.
