We all know the Packers' defensive backfield is decimated with injuries. Once the epitome of depth, the Packers now find the position group relying on that previous depth and hoping for some players back over the long haul. In the meantime, the DB situation is stretched thin.

With a perennially youth oriented team like the Green Bay Packers, there is a certain inevitability. From time to time, rookies will have to step in and make a significant impact from day one. This is not the rookie that has to step in because a veteran player goes down, this is a rookie that has to get up to the speed of the NFL game, absorb all the installs and concepts, and limit mistakes from week one through the playoffs. The Packers have been able to do this in the past with guys like Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Randall…
