Who Will Start At Outside Linebacker Other Than Clay Matthews?

Obviously Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews is a lock to start at left outside linebacker just as he did last season. But the job to start opposite him appears to be a wide open competition.

LB Frank Zombo started at right outside linebacker in their first practice, but then moved over to backup Matthews on Sunday night.

LB Brad Jones was the backup on the left side on Saturday, and the right side on Sunday. Maybe it's his turn to start with the first team defense on Monday.

LB Erik Walden started on the right side in place of Zombo on Sunday night.

I want to have a favorite among these three players, but I don't know which one of them should be the starter. I can point to a big game, or big moment, for each of them, but injuries held back all three to various extents last season. What do you think?
