It was a very poor 2012 for Mason Crosby. He missed 12 field goals, converting 21 of his 33 attempts. The typically strong-legged alum from the University of Colorado was 2 for 9 from 50-plus yards. The Packers have brought in Giorgio Tavecchio, an undrafted free agent from the Cal Golden Bears. Crosby is not worth a draft pick even if he does keep his job, despite playing for an offense that will give him a plethora of extra point attempts.

Green Bay fell from the ranks of the NFL's elite defenses last year. They still managed 47 sacks, good for fourth in the NFL (and having WR Randall Cobb as a returner should lead to a special teams TD sooner rather than later). The continued development of OLB Nick Perry and the recent arrival of UCLA DE Datone Jones could swing this defense back into the conversation of a Top 5 defense. Replacing future Hall of Famer Charles Woodson is next to impossible though. Elite caliber players like OLB Clay Matthews, DT B.J. Raji and a healthy ILB Desmond Bishop should keep Green Bay's D/ST around the Top 10.
