2. Green Bay Packers: Rashan Gary, Preston Smith, Kingsley Enagbare, Jonathan Garvin

Rashan Gay did not have the sack production that Robert Quinn had last season. Still, he is a much better run defender. Then, when you add in pressures, hits, and overall win rate, you see that Gary did have a better season than Quinn.

Beyond that, while we know that Quinn has typically been up and down, Gary is ascending. He is still only 24 years old, and next year may be the best that he has to offer. That will make him one of the most complete rushers in the NFL.

Beyond that, Preston Smith certainly has a leg up on tape, production, and reputation when compared to any of the secondary rushers on the Chicago Bears. Enagbare is a rookie, but most had him ranked over Robinson, and he did get selected ahead of Robinson. Jonathan Garvin may be the worst edge rusher between the Packers, Lions, and Bears. Still, when you factor in that Gary and Smith is the best duo of the three teams, and Enagbare is also a reliable depth option they can get a spot ahead of Chicago.
