The Packers Biggest Offseason Need Is No Surprise

New, comments | Green Bay Packers | Insiders Blog " Football Outsiders: Defensive line is Packers biggest need. Yep.

The Green Bay Packers don't have to re-acquire Cullen Jenkins, but finding someone who can replace his inside pass rush and sack total is the first priority. But they could also use some hustle, high motor guys too. A guy like Johnny Jolly (though not Jolly himself due to his ongoing legal and drug problems) can knock a few passes down at the line of scrimmage. Last season, of the defensive lineman, only Ryan Pickett and B.J. Raji recorded a pass defense and they only combined for a total of four. In Jolly's last season (2009) he recorded ten pass defenses all by himself as he excelled at sticking his arm up right as the quarterback was about to throw.
