The Green Bay Packers defense has been an issue the last few seasons. As good as Aaron Rodgers is, he needs more help if he wants to win another championship and the inconsistencies on defense is a reason the Packers fall short in the postseason.

Last year, the Packers finished 22nd in the NFL in total yards allowed (348.9), 23rd in passing yards allowed (236.8), 17th in rushing yards allowed (112.1) and 26th in points allowed (24). Another big category where the Packers fell short was sacks as they recorded 37 which tied for the 17th best total in the NFL. The Packers also could not create turnovers and they had a turnover ratio of -3. 

Because of the defensive results last year, the Packers decided to make some changes including hiring Mike Pettine to be the defensive coordinator. The Packers also signed defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson and cornerback Tramon Williams.

One of the other important moves the Packers made was drafting two cornerbacks in the first two rounds of the draft. The team selected Jaire Alexander in the first round and they turned around and took Josh Jackson in the second round. So it looks like the Packers defense will have a new look for the 2018 season.

Here's a look at the projected defensive depth chart for the Packers.
