    IDP Week 1 content

    Green Bay Fourth down At least to start the season, the Packers’ top draft pick, Kevin King, isn’t among their top three cornerbacks. Coordinator Dom Capers used his nitro package almost the entire game — that’s a nickel defense where safety Morgan Burnett is one of the two inside linebackers. The three cornerbacks on the field were House and Damarious Randall on the outside, and Quinten Rollins in the slot. King came on in the last couple weeks of training camp, but Capers stuck with Rollins ahead of him — if King makes the top three, he’d play on the outside and Randall would move to the slot. You have to wonder if one of the reasons for going with Rollins on Sunday was to help the run defense. He’s a better run defender than Randall. The nitro already is a smaller defense with Burnett at inside linebacker, so Capers might have wanted his best slot run defender on the field to help compensate.

    Josh Jones has been playing mostly at inside linebacker in the “nitro” package with the No. 2 defense — Morgan Burnett is there with the starters. It’s clear Capers is going to use that defense a lot this season, probably more than any other personnel group. That’s the league now. You need at least one linebacker with a defensive back’s cover ability to match up in the passing game. Burnett will be hard to displace from that starting spot this year. He has so much experience (in his eighth NFL season) and still is a good athlete at age 28. But from what Jones has shown in his short time with the team, it’s a given he’ll play, either to rest Burnett or to match up with specific personnel or down-and-distances. Based on practice, it sure looks like Jones wants to hit. Though there’s no tackling to the ground, he squares up and fills hard in the run game. That and his 220-pound frame — 11 pounds heavier than Burnett — make him a good fit for the nitro package, because at linebacker he’s in the thick of the run defense. Jones also plays fast. His 4.41-second 40 is good timed speed, but to the naked eye, he looks like he has game speed, too. He closes fast. Regardless of whether he surpasses Burnett in the nitro role this year, he should help this defense.

    Local reporter tweeted MLB but didn't specify side. @ByRyanWood Aug 1 Seeing a lot of #Packers safety Morgan Burnett as ILB in 3-4 base defense. So that's base (3-4) with 5 DBs on the field.
  5. Cable is a lot more than $50 around here, it may start out that way... Take some adult classes at local college(some are free). Get Sunday Ticket for $25 a month. I'm in an apt so can't get DTV.

    Morgan Burnett played MLB today, rookie, Jones played it yesterday. Wish they'd draft a MLB high, but no such luck.

    Post-draft impact on IDP rookies

    He played ILB in the first rookie practice so that could be how they saw him.

    Post-draft impact on IDP rookies

    Packers used S Josh Jones at ILB yesterday so he could be used there more this year.
  9. Mel Brooks or someone in the movie industry could get it made, but you are right, it would be harder. People often fight hard to get things made they believe in.
  10. Mine is 1.5PPR for RB's and 1 for WR's, but I'm better stocked at WR so staying where I'm at.
  11. His injury last year was serious. Ty Montgomery's injury was serious.
  12. The day he was drafting a scout said they liked him for his versatility, he could line up in the backfield or split out. I don't see him as a RB, but he could be used there along with another back.
  13. Neither of these two have been consistent.
  14. Rotoworld has him at RB now and asked MFL if they are following suit.
