Looking for an OLB to Play Opposite Clay Matthews?

One of the biggest reasons the Packers signed Peppers was to provide a bookend rusher opposite Clay Matthews. Peppers' role as a sub package rusher certainly will boost the Packers' sack total, but it doesn't provide any long term answers.

The need to find a consistent playmaker for the future is a priority. Injuries have plagued the development of the position and forced Capers to rob Peter to pay Paul when it comes to putting the best 11 players on the field. Should a player such as Kyle Van Noy be available in rounds 2 or 3, he would be a great bookend to Matthews. Van Noy's best trait is his ability to rush the passer. He has been a productive player for BYU and would step in and upgrade the talent level opposite Matthews, while providing a long term solution to for the Packers pass rush.
