Mike Neal, LB, Green Bay Packers

Mike Neal switched from defensive tackle to linebacker this season and dropped a good amount of weight to do so. But despite his move, the Packers still use Neal on the defensive line when they switch to a 4-3. Against the New York Jets, the Packers defense struggled, giving up 21 points in the first half.

Neal helped keep the Jets out of the endzone in the second half and finished with one tackle and two assisted tackles. Not bad for a 260-pound linebacker who saw 19 snaps from the defensive line.

For the season Neal has three tackles and four assisted tackles.
