Best Kept Secrets On Packers: T.J. Slaton
When training camp began, many analysts and fans thought it would be 2022 first-rounder Devonte Wyatt, who would be starting on the defensive line alongside Kenny Clark. However, it’s been TJ Slaton who has outplayed Wyatt at every turn.
Slaton has been practicing as the starting nose tackle in all formations, bumping Wyatt to the second unit. That’s a massive development for the 2021 fifth-rounder, who has made steady progress every year of his career. This could be the start of something big as Slaton tries to prove his worth to the Packers’ defense.
