When the Packers drafted Rashan Gary, he was sitting behind Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith on the depth chart. However, he has quickly become one of the best defensive players on the team and is on his way to becoming one of the best defenders in the NFL. The Rashan Gary stats are just one reflection of the work he puts in during the offseason, constantly training and running drills to perfect his craft.
Rashan Gary was born on Dec. 3, 1997, in Plainfield, N.J. He went to high school at Scotch Plains-Fanwood but transferred to Paramus Catholic. Gary was a multi-sport athlete at Paramus Catholic, playing basketball and football. He became a five-star recruit for football over the course of his high school career. Not only was he a five-star, but he was also the No. 1 ranked player in the country for his high school class. Gary went on to play football at the University of Michigan.
Rashan Gary Stats & College Career At Michigan
Rashan went to college with the weight of expectations on him. But those expectations are what come with being the No. 1 player in the country coming out of high school. Gary played three seasons at the University of Michigan under Jim Harbaugh.
His stats included:
- 34 games
- 119 tackles
- 23.0 tackles for a loss
- 9.5 sacks
- 1 forced fumble
Gary's stats do not reflect the impact he had on the field. After his junior year, he decided to enter the NFL draft. Early mock drafts had Gary getting drafted as high as the top five picks.
Rashan Gary Stats & Packers Career (So Far)
The Packers missed the playoffs in 2018, so they were in fairly unfamiliar territory drafting at number 12. However, they did not hesitate to pull the trigger on the former Wolverine. At the time of the pick, many were unsure how Gary would fit into the puzzle that was the Packers' defense. The team had just dished out large contracts to free-agent pass rushers Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith. Gary, at first, became a rotational piece on the Packers' defense.
However, in 2020 Gary started four games due to injuries. Gary recorded 5.0 sacks in 2020. In 2021 Za'Darius Smith missed the entire regular season with an injury which made Gary a full-time starter. 2021 ended up being his best season as a pro and was good enough for the Packers to be comfortable with moving on from Za'Darius Smith.
Rashan Gary Stats (2021)
- 9.5 sacks
- 47 tackles
- 8 tackles for a loss
- 28 quarterback hits
- 2 forced fumbles
Gary began 2022 as a starter and was off to a phenomenal start. In just nine games, he had 6.0 sacks and was on pace to set a career-high in sacks, tackles, tackles for a loss, and quarterback hits. Unfortunately, Gary tore his ACL against the Detroit Lions in Week 9. The Packers missed his presence greatly for the rest of the season. Gary will look to bounce back in 2023 and have his best season as a pro.
