Now, that may change. If Green Bay does go that route in the draft, they could be in position to shop amongst these prospects:
One of the best performances in the Combine came from Mars Hill product Khalid Abdullah. After running reasonably well in the 40 (4.64), Abdullah displayed outstanding range, footwork and pass cover skills; all necessities for a 227-pound linebacker.
Oregon State's Nick Barnett was explosive and erased some doubts about his size. There was some concern that Barnett was too small and would have to be moved to safety (his college playing weight was in the 220-pound area). After tipping the scales at 236 pounds, running a 4.65 then performing the way he did during drills, Barnett not only proved he could stay at linebacker but boosted his stock.
