The Packers had their final public practice on Monday, August 19th. We wrap up training camp and give some position battles to watch heading into Preseason Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders. 

Very few players in the NFL can say they've matched the tackle production that Green Bay Packers inside linebacker Blake Martinez has this season.

Inside linebacker is still considered a weakness in Green Bay's defense, but the team is at least poised to enter next season with more options. 

Green Bay's ILB corps can't be accurately assessed without including the Claymaker.

Bruised, battered and mediocre would be a few words to properly sum up the 2016 season for Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews.

Nick Perry may lead the team in sacks, but the edge-rusher opposite of him has been kryptonite for opposing offenses this season.

In our worst-case scenario, A.J. Hawk is replaced in the starting lineup by the end of the Packers' 2013 season.

With seven inside linebackers currently on the roster, and most of them mediocre players at best, the Packers are preventing themselves from improving the position.

In the best-case scenario, D.J. Smith makes nearly 150 tackles in 2012. But in the worst-case scenario, it's another disappointing season from A.J. Hawk with few sacks, interceptions and forced fumbles.

But at the same time, Mike McCarthy also said A.J. Hawk is their starter, and they'll move forward with him.

Three things to watch tonight: on offense it's the offensive line, on defense it's the health of the inside linebackers, and on special teams it's the fringe players.
