Welcome back to Monday, everyone. Over the weekend, the Green Bay Packers' plans for the safety position were in the news from a variety of angles. We have articles on the likeliest candidate on the roster to switch positions and end up at safety, there's a look at one of the top safeties in this year's draft, and we have a mock draft in which the Packers are projected to draft a player at the position.
