9. Defensive Line
Kenny Clark can’t do it all by himself, yet he’s asked to year after year. TJ Slaton has been adequate next to him, and Devonte Wyatt has sometimes flashed. However, this unit continues to get beat up at the line of scrimmage, allowing opposing offensive lines to open up huge running lanes. At the very least, they need to start holding their ground.
10. Tight End
The Packers are extremely young at tight end and it’s showing so far. Luke Musgrave has played well, particularly exceeding expectations in blocking. Unfortunately, they’ve gotten very little from the rest of the position group. Third-round pick Tucker Kraft is still acclimating to the NFL and Josiah Deguara has been one of the worst offensive players through the first four games.
Safety continues to be the achillies heel for the Packers. Rudy Ford and Darnell Savage have remained the starters, but offer little to no support in all areas of the field. At this point, they’re just warm bodies sucking up oxygen on the field.
