Starters: Charles Woodson, Tramon Williams
Even with an injury in the Super Bowl, Charles Woodson is still in sync for a big 2011 season. But perhaps the bigger story is Tramon Williams, a corner many fans feel could take home the Defensive Player of the Year Award.
Williams' play last year was terrific, no one will debate that. However, he seemed to be in a different state of mind in the postseason, a promising thought for a corner who enjoys testing the biggest of wide receivers while only standing at 5'11".
Woodson may take a step down, but his ability to sack quarterbacks from the outside will be needed. Seeing as though he now plays a rather loose version of cornerback, expect him to slip into an unofficial safety or linebacker role, even though it may not be intended.
Not much will change in the Packer secondary, hence the team's second-rank point-scoring defense.
Backups: Pat Lee, Sam Shields
Sam Shields surprisingly stepped up in the Super Bowl when Charles Woodson was down. Yes, the Steelers did fight back hard in the second half, but Shields is on path to taking over Woodson's role within the next three to five years.
Pat Lee on the other hand, is a question mark waiting for an answer. He's yet to record a single interception in his four years as an NFL corner, and isn't winning any roster battles with the Packers certain to draft a corner sometime at the end of April.
For now, Shields is the sole go-to guy, while we cannot forget the likes of Brandon Underwood and Josh Bell.
