Here's a big reason why the #Packers have 1st-round pick Nick Perry at Clay Matthews' LOLB spot: he's 271 pounds. Most teams are right-handed, which means the LOLB often plays on the TE side. On running plays, Matthews, who is 255 pounds, faces double teams at the point of attack because of the TE. He was very good playing the run last year, but it wears him down and having a 270-pounder jacking up TEs is far more preferable. That said, expect the game plan to dictate where they line up.
