It was difficult to get a gauge on the 2011 Packers secondary that could be both simultaneously poor and exceptional at seemingly the same time.
On one hand, the defensive backs were a big reason the Packers led the NFL with 31 interceptions last season, which was eight more than the next closest team.
But on the other hand, they were also guilty of giving up the most passing yards in NFL history last year. Granted, the pass-rush factored into the performance of the pass defense as well.
With that in mind, the secondary will play a big role as to whether the Packers defense can improve this season, and these power rankings attempt to take a look at the players who will determine its success or failure.
The rankings reflect two things: 1) the present talent of the players, and 2) their potential impact on the 2012 season.
