The big thing to watch is new look defense as they try and fix the disaster that was the 2016 pass defense. So far it looks like the solution is to get rid of all the linebackers.
That's three lineman, two EDGE rushers, two CBs and three safeties. At under 230 lbs. Joe Thomas is a one of a new breed of players. Ten years ago he'd be way to small to be considered a LB and either bulk up to play inside or go small and play safety. I should correct myself and call him one too but he's a different type of inside backer.#Packers D first no-huddle snap:— Ryan Wood (@ByRyanWood) July 27, 2017
DL: Daniels, Clark, Lowry
LBs: Matthews, Burnett, Thomas, Perry
CBs: House, Gunter
S: Clinton-Dix, Brice
The one glaring weakness is their No. 1 CB. Who should be covering the other team's No. 1 receiver? House and Gunter aren't the answer. The future should belong to 2nd round CB Kevin King but the present is not in his hands:
Ugh. Hopefully he's a fast learner during training camp.Top rookie Kevin King is starting camp off as scout-team WR. #Packers working him in slowly after missing most of spring.— Ryan Wood (@ByRyanWood) July 27, 2017
It looks like they'll have good weather in Green Bay this weekend so hopefully everyone in attendance has a good time.
