12. Green Bay Packers: Michigan Defensive End Rashan Gary
Normally, the Green Bay Packers were always one of those teams that seemed to be a lock for at least a Wild Card spot in the NFC, but the last two seasons have resulted in the team watching the playoffs from home.
Numerous reasons are to blame for the struggles behind the Packers, but at least with Mike McCarthy gone, a fresh start will hopefully help this team get back on the winning track for the 2019 season.
Of course, whether that happens will come down to the play of Aaron Rodgers on offense, but even a future Hall of Fame can struggle to succeed if he doesn’t have the proper help from his teammates on defense.
Rashan Gary will be considered one of the top defensive prospects once the end of April rolls around, and it was amazing to see him shine at the combine following an unbelievable career at Michigan.
Gary has the kind of athleticism that will cause all sorts of problems for opposing teams in the NFL, and even though the Packers could consider offense here as well, the good news is they can always focus on that later since they have an additional pick later on in the first round.
