With Clay Matthews playing lights out for the most part this season when he has been able to stay on the field, it has been easy to overlook the Packers' other 2009 first-round draft pick. But with a lot less fanfare than Matthews, the consensus is that B.J. Raji has done a very solid job as the starting nose tackle so far this season. Raji leads all Green Bay defensive linemen in tackles by a wide margin, in addition to providing a decent interior pass rush with 2½ sacks and a pass deflection. Raji also has proven to be extremely durable after an injury-plagued rookie campaign, remaining a force despite having to work overtime in recent weeks because of injuries to Ryan Pickett (ankle) and rookie Mike Neal (shoulder). It has been a different story with Neal, who definitely has made his presence felt when he has been able to stay on the field. The problem is Neal has suited up for only two games.
