Where would Anthony fit?

Anthony seems like he would be a great fit with the Packers. I can see why Green Bay seems so high on him going into the draft.

The athletic linebacker would not only instantly upgrade the Packers run defense, but he could also develop into a true three-down back for their team.

Green Bay would not need to take him off the field when they send out their nickel and dime sub packages. Something they haven’t had at inside linebacker since Desmond Bishop.

Anthony would also bring a much-needed physical presence to the middle of their defense. He’s a powerful linebacker that does not shy away from contact.

Check out this final clip where Anthony wrestles down 235-pound power back Carlos Hyde (who now plays with the 49ers).

If Anthony can take down the likes of Hyde this easily, he shouldn’t have a problem tackling any back at the next level.

Anthony may just be what the Packers need going forward.
