With Cullen Jenkins likely testing free agency and Jonny Jolly absolutely, positively having no chance of ever playing for the Packers again, what was once a deep position on the Packers is suddenly the thinnest on the team.
We know Ryan Pickett will play one end position, but at the age of 31 it would be a near miracle to get 16 games out of this 340 pounder with an already heavy injury history.
And who does Green Bay expect to play the other defensive end position? Mike Neal? He's already coming off a season-ending injury and nobody knows what to expect from him. CJ Wilson? He wasn't bad last season, but it would be a stretch to call him a starter at this point. Justin Harrel? Ha ha ha.
It's clear the Packers need to address this early in the draft. Even if they can't find a starter, they need another big body to rotate in and out.
