      When the Green Bay Packers decided to switch to a 3-4 defense, one of the first things I said would happen would be linebacker Brady Poppinga would find he’s a perfect fit and would challenge for one of the starting outside linebacker spots. Turns out I was right about that.

      Poppinga hasn’t officially


      been named the starter but he seems to be holding off first round pick Clay Matthews and suprise star Jeremy Thompson for the position.

      Now, I know the fact the other two guys have been injured throughout much of the preseason has helped him.

      They obviously aren’t going to pose much of a ...


      • challenge if they aren’t on the field.

        But, I also know he has great size; 250 pounds, to play the position and is an excellent pass rusher.

        That’s why the Packers were trying him at defensive end a bit last year.

        In Dom Caper’s system, he should be a player who gets plenty

        of opportunities to pressure the quarterback and can play some in coverage as well.

        I do still think there are better players in coverage than him, which is where he usually struggles a bit.

        But, I do see him being one of the top linebackers this year; earning that extension he received before the start of last season.
