GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers are still trying to figure out what they have in former first-round draft pick Nick Perry.

Injuries limited him to just six games as a rookie in 2012 and 11 games last season.

While the sample size to date has not been enough to call Perry's conversion from a college defensive end at USC to an NFL outside linebacker a success just yet, the 28th overall pick in the 2012 draft has made some impact plays — the strip-sack of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco that set up a Packers' field goal on the last play of the first half in the Oct.

No matter where he plays, he's going to have to be WAY more productive, and healthy. This is a make or break year for him. If he wants the right side and he's twice as productive there, give it to him and move Matthews, or platoon him with Matthews exclusively. To me, he has been one of our team's biggest disappointments to date. I was encouraged at times last year, but those were too infrequent for a 1st round pick.

He needs to pick it up this year or be labeled a bust.

Perry is a good player if he can stay on the field. When he could get a few games in a row under his belt you could see him getting more comfortable and making plays. The problem is he keeps getting hurt.
I kind of look at him like I do Bulaga. He's shown he can play but two years in a row now he's been knocked out of the lineup.

Big year for both of them and I believe both can have that if they can just stay on the field and off the injury list.

I wouldn't call Perry a bust because I believe he's shown he can play the game especially considering this is a position that takes awhile to get the hang of. Unlucky or unfortunate are terms I could see in reference for both he and the team. He helps the team when he's available as Mike McCarthy puts it so it's hard for me to call a player like that a bust.

These two guys just staying healthy and bringing what they got would be a couple of nice pieces of what will hopefully be a better team in '14.

If he plays as well as he did the first 5 games last year before he broke his foot he'll be fine. Just needs to stay healthy for once.

I think the answer to the question is: He starts, and he is the guy who comes out when Peppers comes in - mainly on passing downs.

I wish they would give it a good try with Perry on the right and Matthews on the left. The article says it may not be that simple, but then it goes on to say how Matthews has been effective from either side, so really it IS that simple.

I still think Perry is a good player - not a bust, but that isn't a sure thing until he proves it on the field.

He has to prove it and has yet to do so. He needs a good year. I hope he takes off and realizes his potential with the Packers this season. Having a mentor like Peppers around in pass rush can only help.

If healthy, Perry should get most of the snaps at ROLB when the Packers are in the nickel, which is probably about 60-70% of the time. He could also see some snaps at DE when the Packers are in their elephant package. Because of his size, there are plenty of ways to use him.

Let's all imagine just how good this kid could possibly be if he had two full seasons of playing...

The issue I see assuming Perry is better on the Right, is that Clay is also better on the right. I'm not sure if we would gain enough production from Perry to offset what Clay would drop.

I would be curious to see what Perry could do as an upgrade over Jones inside.

Clay played LOLB in 2010 and had perhaps his best season. I don't think there would be any dropoff.

I doubt Perry has the coverage skills to replace Jones.

If we had another option that could rush from the Left in 2010, I don't think they would have put Clay there, we had Jenk rushing from the right side getting the attention making it easier for the lesser OLBs.

Jones has been OK but he isn't anything special in coverage and both Perry and Clay have more physical talent than he does. Much of what we hear about is getting the best athletes on the field and let them make plays. Perhaps, we could have Perry and Clay both on the field and let them shift back and forth between ROLB and ILB, Clay has lined up and rushed from the middle of the field on occasion also.

That is ridiculous. He's far too young.

I could easily see Perry being part of a draft day trade with OAK. Very easily. OAK has picked 5, 36 and 67 in the first 3 rounds. OAK is going to want to trade down for more picks/players. I could see Perry being packaged in a deal.

He played there in 2011 as well.

uffda udfa (18h) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (19h) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (19h) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (19h) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (20h) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
