6. Willie Young
Willie Young played defensive end for most of his career with the Detroit Lions. However, he’s switched to a 3-4 outside linebacker in the past three seasons with the Chicago Bears. And despite missing most of last season with a torn triceps, he had pretty good success.
In the two full seasons (2015 and 2016) as an outside linebacker, he posted 6.5 and 7.5 sacks respectively. That’s the second and third highest total of his career.
Despite being nearly 33-years-old and recovering from a torn triceps, Young could provide the Packers with some much-needed depth at the position. He would be a good part-time player who can spell Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.
He also hasn’t had the experience of playing for too many winning teams so he should be extra hungry for that experience at this point in his career. If the Packers aren’t satisfied with their outside linebacker depth as the summer wears on, Young could be a decent depth pick-up to create more competition at the position.
