Green Bay Packers Team Defense
|Outlook • Latest News|
While it could be argued that they underachieved a bit last season, the Green Bay Packers defense was a borderline starting unit in most scoring systems. They obviously missed inside linebacker Desmond Bishop who missed all of 2012. His return will certain give the Packers a boost, but that may be partially offset by the departure of stalwart cornerback Charles Woodson. Green Bay has a lot of young talent, so they should be able to overcome the loss of Woodson. You never know, however, until it happens. Up front, the Packers should be stellar. With Ryan Pickett and B.J. Raji, opponents will find it tough to attack the middle, while linebackers Bishop and Clay Matthews have All Pro talent. If Green Bay can find another rush linebacker, this unit could improve in 2013 and become an every-week fantasy starter.
