Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels has helped Green Bay's defense produce solid results in the run-stopping game the past few seasons. NFL Films takes you inside the film room with Daniels to see how it all works.
By DVOA, the Green Bay Packers had the 8th-best run defense in 2017, better than their 14th-best effort in 2016, 19th in 2015, 24th in 2014, and 30th in 2013, when Daniels became a bigger part of the Packers' defensive line rotation after his rookie season in 2012.
It remains to be seen how the Packers will fare under new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, whose pass defenses have been some of the best in football (in his last year as a defensive coordinator, in 2013 with Buffalo, the Bills were the 2nd-best pass defense behind the Legion of Boom-era Seattle Seahawks by DVOA). Pettine will have a full assortment of defensive linemen to try out against the run in 2018 with the Packers.
