Denzel Perryman, Miami (FL): One of the most overrated prospects in this year’s draft. He’s fairly small for a linebacker at 5’11, 236 pounds and has a lack of instincts.

Inside Linebacker Not the Packers Pick At #30?

The big story from a Packers perspective from the 2015 NFL Combine has been the overall disappointment of the inside linebackers. Mike Mayock mentioned it on the broadcast and Paul Dawson and Denzel Perryman disappointed in particular.

Packers could find their inside man in first round of draft

INDIANAPOLIS -- At last year's NFL Scouting Combine, Mike McCarthy recalled being asked approximately seven questions about the Green Bay Packers' struggles at safety.

Atlanta Falcons Need to Improve Linebacker Position

To say the Atlanta Falcons linebackers struggled in 2014 may be an understatement. Despite gaudy tackle numbers from second-year Paul Worrilow, it may have been the worst position group on the field.
