Packers | Linebacker unit undergoing changes

Sat, 22 Jul 2006 06:35:17 -0700

Pete Dougherty, of PackersNews.com, reports the Green Bay Packers will have two new starters to join MLB Nick Barnett, the team's leading tackler each of his three years in the NFL, for the 2006 season. Rookie LB A.J. Hawk, the fifth pick overall, will be one, at weakside linebacker, where the Packers surely will look for him to be an immediate difference maker. LB Ben Taylor is the front-runner to start on the strongside, though returnee LB Roy Manning, rookie LB Abdul Hodge or maybe even LB Brady Poppinga could push for that job as well, if he recovers fully from his knee injury. The Packers appear to be quite high on Hodge as well, though whether he'll be ready to challenge Taylor, Manning and Poppinga for the starting job on the strong side is another matter. The Packers' chronic shortcomings at linebacker in recent years showed up last season not only in their run defense but in the paltry number of big plays by that position.

Packers | Taylor leading the way at strongside linebacker, but there is a long way to go

Tue, 20 Jun 2006 06:02:15 -0700

Pete Dougherty, of PackersNews.com, reports Green Bay Packers LB Ben Taylor is lining up as the team's starting strongside linebacker, but there is a long way to go before the season starts. His main competitor at this time is LB Roy Manning. Manning knew the defense after starting two games at that position last year, yet Taylor surpassed him. Maybe Manning will beat out Taylor when the pads go on, or perhaps third-round draft pick LB Abdul Hodge will play so well in training camp that the Packers will move him from the backup at middle linebacker to compete for the strongside job. There is still a chance LB Brady Poppinga (knee) will join the fray as well.

Packers | Taylor ready to shine

Tue, 11 Apr 2006 13:10:54 -0700

Jeff Fedotin, of Packers.com, reports Green Bay Packers LB Ben Taylor expects to have more success in Green Bay's 4-3 defensive alignment than he did with the Cleveland Browns. Taylor, who is on the small side for a linebacker at 238 pounds, struggled at times with the Browns 3-4 defensive alignment last season. "In this system you don't always have to hit an offensive lineman," Taylor reasoned. "You can use your athleticism to make plays. That's something that plays toward my game." Taylor has played all three linebacker spots and is in competition for one of the starting outside linebacker spots.
