Green Bay --- Finding a safety to pair with Morgan Burnett was considered by many outsiders as the Green Bay Packers' top need in the NFL draft.

MD Jennings is always in position.

IMO, he just needs to hit the weight room and bulk up to the appropriate size for an NFL S, without losing speed in the process.

I'm mainly looking to McMillian to be the starter though.

Yes... I agree if his weight and strength goes up and he works on his tackling he can be a solid starter. Which in bacons article it says he's gotten up to 200 pounds so he's doing something.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

I agree Jennings seems to always be in correct position. But the frustrating part is he can't always make a play on the ball from even great position.... his hand/eye coordination or reaction time or something just seems to be off or not correct or something...

I've seen where he was in perfect position to knock pass down, he didn't even have to stretch out for it... his mid forearm could of knocked it down... but he couldn't get hit it as it went pass it to the WR behind him and scored a Touch Down.

Jennings clearly has the coverage skills to keep up with WR and smart to be in the right place at the right time. But his ball skill and toughness against the run are his down fall though.


But I still think Burnett is a SS/FS tweener type which is a perfect fit for the Packers SS role which they like to use SS/FS tweener for that role. But the Packers put Burnett in the FS role instead because they didn't trust the others in that role.

Though I think Jennings or McMillian would be better fits in the FS role (talent wise). But they may or may not be ready and the Packers like to flip flop their S roles in the game trying to confuse the offense and QB.
