A Scout’s Take on the Evolution of the Safety/Linebacker Hybrid in Today’s NFL
During the 2016 season, the Green Bay Packers started using safety Morgan Burnett at inside linebacker at times while the Packers were in their nickel package defensively.
Why? Because the team was looking for more speed at the position to better cover backs and tight ends in passing situations.
It’s also become a trend in the NFL as of late. Getting smaller, but faster players to play linebacker on passing downs. But those players also have to be able to play the run well too.
