I know that Al Harris is rehabbing, and I hear he's making good progress, but will he ever be back to where he was before the injury? And will he be back in time for the start of the season?
Those are two questions that are still nagging me after the 2010 NFL Draft.
Against better quarterbacks after Harris' injury - Warner and Roethlisberger - the Packers' secondary got shredded. If you discount the meaningless end-of-the-season game, in the 2 remaining games against those two quarterbacks, the secondary yielded 58 completions for 882 yards and 8 touchdowns against 0 interceptions.
So, assuming that Harris isn't back to starting form (or is completely out of the equation) the Packers are where they ended last season.
Starting Cornerbacks: Woodson, Williams
Nickel Back: Blackmon
Dime Back: Lee or Bush
Others: Lee/Bush, Underwood, maybe Bell or Trevor Ford?
I'm fine with the way we're setting up at safety. Burnett or Bigby will be our starting strong safety alongside Collins. The other will provide depth. And Derrick Martin will provide a fall back.
But I think we're an injury away from being in big trouble at cornerback. Do we go out and sign a veteran free agent? Dre' Bly, Nick Harper, Anthony Henry, Ty Law, Ken Lucas, Hank Poteat, Deshea Townshend, and Frank Walker are still available.
Or do you all think we're fine? Thoughts?
