The Packers ranked second by allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete merely 55.2 percent of their passes last season. Based on a 75.6 passer rating, the Packers boasted the sixth-best pass defense in the NFL. They tied for sixth with 19 interceptions.
Here's a quick look at the Packers' cornerbacks heading into training camp. For a more in-depth breakdown, check out the two cornerbacks stories available only to Packer Report subscribers.
Starters: Al Harris (33) and Charles Woodson (31) are a combined 64 years old, but few tandems are better. Especially because of what's asked of them. Harris had his problems at times last season — he was dominated by the Giants' Plaxico Burress in the NFC title game — but he won more often than he lost while facing the opponent's No. 1 receiver every week. Harris is a proud athlete, so don't write him off.
Nickel cornerback: Tramon Williams excelled as the No. 3 cornerback at the end of last season, and he enters training camp as a prohibitive favorite to keep the job. Jarrett Bush couldn't handle the job last season, Will Blackmon can't stay healthy and Pat Lee is a rookie.
