Summary

Morgan Burnett is one of the few elite safeties both in dynasty and redraft formats. Last year his numbers suffered because of a calf injury that held him out for a combined total of five regular season games. Because of the competent coverage of the Packers' secondary group, he is able to drop into the box and make tackles against the run. The inside linebacker situation also remains unstable, creating more tackle opportunities for Burnett. If inside linebackers Jake Ryan and Sam Barrington can both stay healthy this year, expect Burnett's numbers to decrease, if only slightly. (May 15)

Packers | Morgan Burnett doing new things (Thu Jul 28, 10:32 AM) - Green Bay Packers FS Morgan Burnett was used as a hybrid linebacker in the box in nickel packages Thursday, July 28.

Our View: This is just a standardizing of something the Packers did off and on for some time, though not necessarily with Burnett. A lot of teams use a hybrid safety-linebacker in their schemes.
