Extra pass-rush here to Arizona; not as explosive, but still gets after the passer.

Packers

Gb_logo-80x90_medium
Khyri Thornton DT USM
Could be a rotational 5-Tech, but the Packers need a defensive lineman.

Likely not an every-down running back, but can play all over, including both sides of the ball. Could be a change of pace running back.
