Bryan Bulaga Jersey

Martinez was a headliner over a group of unremarkable players."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCSTShareTweetShareSharePackers 2018 Roster Grades: Martinez provides stable presence for inside linebackersJeff Hanisch-USA TODAY SportsOver a two week span Womens Davon House Jersey , Acme Packing Company takes a look at each position group on the Green Bay Packers and provides grades and insight on how they performed in the 2018 season. Today we examine the inside linebacker group.In 2018, the Green Bay Packers’ inside linebacker group did not do many things to impress. There were not many splash plays. No interceptions, no scoop and score plays. It was a pedestrian group of players led by a solid starter. Blake Martinez made the headlines and played the role of fan favorite. There was not great depth at this position and it hurt at times. StartersBlake Martinez2018 Stats: 144 Tackles (91 Solo), 10 TFL, 5.0 sacks, 3 passes defendedStarting all 16 games, Martinez had the most plays among all Packers linebackers. He was on the field for 98.6% of all defensive snaps, missing just 15 plays all year. Only the Colts’ Darius Leonard had more tackles this year. After getting just a single sack in each of his first two seasons, he ended up with five this year. Martinez also had six QB hits, double the total of his first two seasons. Part of the improvement in his pass rush might be the change in defensive coordinators from Dom Capers to Mike Pettine.Still, Martinez was less involved in pass coverage this season. He has among the fewest passes defended among the league’s top tacklers — of the 18 players who had 120 or more tackles, just three had fewer pass breakups than Martinez.Antonio Morrison2018 Stats: 48 Tackles (27 Solo), 5 TFL, 1.0 sackMorrison was added to the team right at the beginning of the season. He was able to add some force and attitude near the line of scrimmage, but did not see the field in passing situations. He did not manage a single Pass Defended. Also Brett Favre Jersey White , he only played 28.1% of the snaps.He provided good size and run stopping ability to a team that lost Jake Ryan in the preseason.Still, he was a limited player with a clear role to play.BackupsOren Burks2018 Stats: 24 Tackles (18 Solo)Burks was in his first year out of Vanderbilt after the Packers selected him in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He is a lighter, faster linebacker and it limited his usefulness on running downs. He suffered a shoulder injury during training camp and it hampered his ability to see the field much early. In a system that will need a pass covering linebacker, he should be able to see the field more in the coming years.Korey Toomer2018 Stats: 3 Solo TacklesToomer is a journeyman who has played with the Chargers, Raiders, Rams and Cowboys. Heonly played 12 defensive snaps. He mostly managed to see the field on special teams.James Crawford2018 Stats: 9 Tackles (8 Solo), 1 Fumble RecoveryCrowford saw only one defensive snap, but managed to play 70.7% of all special teams snaps. He was a guy for depth who gave the Packers good special teams play. With the failure of the Packers special teams in 2018, it is hard to see how much value he really might have provided to the season at large.Overall Grade: C+This collection of inside linebackers has a single player who produced at a high level. Packers spent a lot of time in single linebacker sets and Martinez was that linebacker. Meanwhile, Pettine lined up several safeties at linebacker as well, with Jermaine Whitehead, Josh Jones, and even Eddie Pleasant getting some snaps next to Martinez. Burks and Morrison had limited roles and the rest were special teamers at best. There is very little serious depth and not a lot of help if Martinez does not make the plays.NFL Preseason Schedule 2018, Week 1: 30 teams begin exhibition slates Yes, the Green Bay Packers begin their preseason schedule this week , but the same goes for 29 other teams around the NFL over the next three days, as everyone but the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens takes the field for the first time.
