8. Will Josh Jones adapt to being a full-time safety?
Josh Jones had some great games last season where he was flying all over the field and playing with a contagious passion for the game. Most notably was when they played the Cincinnati Bengals and he recorded 11 tackles and two sacks.
Unfortunately, he disappeared from action more often than not and was caught out of position in his role of a hybrid linebacker/safety.
The Packers hope they can help him become more consistent next season by switching him to a full-time role at the safety position opposite Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. He will still be able to fly all over the field and play close to the line of scrimmage at times, but he will be able to concentrate solely on the position.
The Packers are counting on him to take a big second-year leap which is why they let Morgan Burnett sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The pace of his growth in 2018 will be a huge indicator of Green Bay’s defensive success.
