On the team’s roster, Julius Peppers appears as a defensive end and linebacker for the Packers. On the first, unofficial depth chart, Peppers appears only as the starting left outside linebacker.
While the Packers have been vague about Peppers’ role in his first season in the 3-4 defense, it appears he’ll spend the bulk of his time like most 4-3 defensive ends do when they shift to a 3-4. But no one should be surprised if the Packers moved Peppers to defensive end from time to time.
Elsewhere on the depth chart, Micah Hyde has an early edge on first-rounder Ha Ha Clinton Dix at safety. Hyde also is listed as the team’s top punt and kickoff returner.
The Packers’ depth chart otherwise has no real surprises. If the defense is even a little bit better with Peppers, it won’t be a surprise if the Packers are playing deep into January.
