Green Bay's defense was elite at stopping the run in 2017

Despite trailing in games after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, the Packers were still one of the NFL's best teams defending the run in 2017.

For as bad as the Packers were against the pass, Green Bay was able to stop the run consistently in 2017. Green Bay's best defensive line pass rushers are also top-notch run defenders, which should give the Packers a base to build off of in 2018 as the team works to shore up the pass defense.

With all of the high draft picks being applied to the secondary in recent drafts, the front half of the defense has held their own, turning middle-round draft picks into solid contributors.
