VIDEO: Green Bay Packers’ Nick Perry Highlights At USC

The Green Bay Packers made the right move drafting defensive end Nick Perry out of the University of Southern California in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Green Bay desperately needed a pass rusher to complement Clay Matthews and Perry is the right man for the job.

These are video highlights of Perry’s 2011 season at the USC. As you can see, he has a relentless motor like Matthews and is able to dip his shoulder to get around bigger offensive lineman. He is an intelligent pass rusher who is capable of racking up the sacks. The Packers could not have asked for a better first round pick.

Although he was a defensive end at USC, look for defensive coordinator Dom Capers to mold him into an outside linebacker. Linebackers coach Kevin Greene will work with him every day and teach him how to play the position, just like he did with Matthews. Also, Matthews will take Perry under his wing (both hail from USC) and show him what it takes to be an elite pass rusher in the NFL. Matthews has learned from the best and now Perry will get to do the same.

The sky is the limit for Perry in a Packers uniform and Green Bay is fortunate to get a player of his magnitude. He is a complete game changer because he will not only record outstanding statistics but he will be able to take a lot of pressure off of Matthews. Look for Matthews’ numbers to shoot back up with Perry playing opposite of him, especially if the Packers are able to acquire some interior pass rushers.

Thanks to CaliforniasGold for the awesome video.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.
