How can Devonte Wyatt impact the Packers in 2022?

Wyatt should see some snaps on the defensive line for the Packers, who are trying to build that part of their roster back up after making some cuts. He’s unlikely to make a major statistical impact right away, but the Packers have been good at developing defensive linemen and should be able to make Wyatt a productive player eventually.
