The Green Bay Packers drafted two running backs in the first four rounds of this year's draft after many had been calling for the team to find more production in the run game.  With the addition of draftees Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin, some would argue that each will end up playing a key role [...]

I'll go with Datone Jones simply because there is a lot more room for improvement with the defense. It's a really great thing that there are so many possible answers to the question.

I would love to think it will be one of the running backs but Mike McCarthy is calling the plays so being a defense loving fan i'm going to say the return of Perry.

If Eddie Lacy is the biggest addition, you can say hello to 3rd place in the NFC North division.

RB Johnathan Franklin

Datone Jones. He is the DE we have lacked since SB XLV. I appreciate Bishop, and I'm a big fan of his play, but it will be Datone who will make Bishop's play even better. Datone's presence will make the job of many other teammates on D better and more effective.

When I think about the defense and the possibilities of this being an outstanding unit I get pretty fired up.
There are five first round picks out there in Raji, Pickett, Jones, Mathews, and, Perry. Four second rounders in Hayward, Burnett, Neal, and, House. Two of our best defensive guys not even in either group being Bishop and Shields. Aside from whatever round they came out of these guys can play.

Getting Bishop and Perry back and adding Jones bolsters the positions where the quality and consistency just wasn't there last year.

So the answer is there. These guys just have to hear the bell. But it's not like asking guys that don't have the ability to do this. So for me it's not what one or two guys can do but anticipating what all 11 on the field will accomplish.

thanks Post received 2 applause.
