Training camp look in: Nick Perry sets a hard edge

Posted by Vic Ketchman, editor on August 1, 2013 – 10:24 am

GREEN BAY–Nick Perry didn’t play in the playoff loss to the 49ers last January. Thursday morning, Perry gave camp-goers a glimpse of what the Packers missed in San Francisco.

In a set-the-edge drill against rookie tackle David Bakhtiari, Perry dropped his pads on Bakhtiari and knocked him back with a thunderous collision. It produced the kind of hard edge the Packers lacked against quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who rushed for 181 yards in the 49ers’ playoff win.

Thursday’s practice provided more evidence of the Packers’ focus on being a more physical team in 2013. The emphasis is especially acute along the line of scrimmage.

Bakhtiari continued to work at both tackle positions. Prior to his bout with Perry, Bakhtiari worked at left tackle against Clay Matthews and Bakhtiari held his own.

The set-the-edge drill was followed by a point-of-attack drill that pitted offensive and defensive linemen and included double-team blocks. Journeyman tackle Kevin Hughes and second-year guard Greg Van Roten impressed.

In a no-huddle drill, Aaron Rodgers was on target to Randall Cobb on a deep-seam route, but Cobb dropped the pass. Rookie running back Johnathan Franklin flashed his quickness by exploding through a hole at left tackle. Cornerback Sam Shields broke on a pass from Rodgers for Jeremy Ross and knocked the ball away. will provide a full report following practice.

    It’s funny how training camp produces good news and bad news both for us. Do you think “Alright, Bakhtiari held his own against Clay” or do you think “Oh no, Clay couldn’t get past this guy”?

    Clay Mathews does not have to impress anyone, Bakhtiari does (.) !

    I was thinking about that too, OK. It’s a win-lose. It was nice to hear about Perry holding the edge against the read-option. In the playoff game, every time I expected to see the linebacker turning in the play and stopping Kaepernick, there was…. nobody! BUT Frank Gore wasn’t going to block anybody. Walden had him stopped cold! ARRGGGH! I still haven’t moved on!

    That’s so true OK. I remember in the late 80s intersquad games we were commenting that the Packers D was the only squad the Packers O could move the ball on.

    Ahhh, Please don’t remind any of us who were around to watch the Packers in the late 80′s, painful to remember how bad GB was for TWO decades! Makes me grateful for our team for last two decades.

    The PACK needs two good LBs like the 49ers have in Patrick Willis and Aldon Smith.

    I think this D has what it takes to go all the way. Just stay healthy. Nick Perry is a caliber guy, hopefully he will turn out like Matthews. I think Jamari Lattimore would be a great fit at MLB. I think Brad Jones has what it takes to be a great MLB also. Not to mention all the great new running backs Eddie Lacy, Franklin and the OLB Datone Jones. I think this is going to be a great season, Go Pack Go!!!!!

    I really hope I’m wrong about Perry. I would like to see him be a bookend to Mathews. Was hoping to see that last year but saw no flashes from this guy at all.
    To me this is his break out or bust year. Nothing in between when your a number 1 pick.

    You don’t remember the hit on Andrew Luck that caused a fumble?? I know he was flagged for hit but replay clearly showed it was clean, because he hit him in the chest. Evidence of it was the fact that Luck’s head went forward when Perry hit him in the chest. If I am not mistaken we recovered near their endzone. Would have been another win for us and changed playoff picture. Shame. Perry will be be a beast..mark it down.
