Over the weekend Blake Martinez Jersey , the Green Bay Packers quietly made a roster transaction, promoting defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster to the active roster from the practice squad. Lancaster took the place of running back Darius Jackson, whom the Packers released, and his promotion opened up a spot on the practice squad.but they also made a swap at another position on the squad. The first new name is wide receiver Keon Hatcher, who played his college football at the University of Arkansas. The 6-foot-1 Hatcher was invited to the NFL Combine in 2017 but injured his hamstring at the event and did not complete his drills.Hatcher spent five years at Arkansas and finished his career with 19 touchdowns and just shy of 1,900 receiving yards. He also added 21 rushes for 259 yards and a touchdown and pitched in a few kickoff returns early in his career. Hatcher spent the entire 2017 season on the Oakland Raiders’ practice squad.The other new face on the practice squad is running back Tra Carson. A dual-threat running back, Carson ran for 1,165 yards as a senior in 2015, adding 29 receptions for 183 yards and scoring a total of eight touchdowns. He projects as a physical runner, measuring in at 5-foot-11 and 227 pounds. His Pro Day numbers include a 40-yard dash time of 4.64 seconds and a vertical jump of 37 inches. Carson suited up for two games with the Cincinnati Bengals this year after spending all of last season on the active roster but failing to make the 46-man active gameday roster even once. He was released with an injury settlement on October 1st.In order to open up a second spot on the practice squad to make room for these two players, the Packers released running back Joel Bouagnon from the practice squad. Bouagnon was the Packers’ leading rusher in the preseason, but he did so with just a 2.8 yards-per-carry average.Packers Film Room: Green Bay’s pass rush needs Reggie Gilbert on the field Outside linebacker has been a sore spot for the Packers in recent years, and recent drafts have done nothing to help alleviate that issue.Vince Biegel is a candidate to get cut, Nick Perry can’t stay healthy Youth Kenny Clark Jersey , Clay Matthews has lost some explosiveness as he ages, and Kyler Fackrell is...something.One encouraging development this preseason, however, has been the outstanding play of Reggie Gilbert.Let’s look at some of his highlights so far.Gilbert racked up a monster stat line for a preseason game in week two against the Pittsburgh Steelers.He managed 2.5 sacks, 3 tackles, and a forced fumble in 29 plays, and got to his stat line with a myriad of moves.He did it through dogged pursuit;He was granted a gimme on a free rush, something we didn’t see much of from the Green Bay defense under the direction of Dom Capers:And again, Gilbert was relentless in his pursuit of the football and it paid off.Aaron Kampman-esque.A play I really wanted to highlight from that game, though, wasn’t a sack or a run stuff, but an easy win on a pass rush where Gilbert used more handwork than he had shown previously.Reggie uses his inside arm to stab the blocker in the chest right under the collarbone; this keeps Chukwuma Okorafor from getting his hands in Gilbert’s chest too quickly.Sorry for the poor quality, but if you look close enough, you can see Gilbert’s left hand on Okorafor’s collar.In the next photo, you’ll see Okorafor’s hands are starting to come up from his sides http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-mason-crosby-jersey , about to deliver his punch.At the same time, Gilbert is raising his outside hand in order to chop down Okorafor’s punch.Okorafor doesn’t get his hands on Gilbert who has the big foot speed advantage, and Gilbert gets to the edge.Only a last second push in the back keeps Gilbert from getting to Mason Rudolph.Gilbert’s momentum from the Steelers game carried into the next week, where he was again disruptive in his pass rush.While he finished the game with only one sack and a forced fumble, his presence was felt whenever he was on the field.In fact, he managed to get pressure on Derek Carr on the very first snap:It didn’t stop there.Just like I highlighted in the Steelers game, Gilbert showed good hand usage in rushing the passer.Gilbert, once again, throws a stab into his blocker with his inside arm.The timing of this stab is important; it lets you know that as a pass rusher, you’re now within arms length of your blocker and as soon as you’re at that distance, you can expect a punch coming from the blocker.Since you know the punch is coming, you know when to time your counter move.Gilbert did just that against first round pick and the Raiders’ LT of the future Kolton Miller:Perfectly executed and perfectly timed, the only thing missing was the end result.In most pass rush situations, Gilbert either tries to get to the edge with a speed move, or else counter by jumping back inside after taking a step or two outside.Against the Raiders Bryan Bulaga Jersey , he tried something he hasn’t shown before; the bull rush.Not only did the bull rush work, it worked against Donald Penn - three time pro bowler, 315 pound Donald Penn.Gilbert lowers his head and shoulders and got an excellent lean.There’s two things to look at in this next photo; Penn’s feet and his shoulderpad height.Offensive line play begins with your feet; if you don’t have good footwork it doesn’t matter how long and strong you are.Penn’s feet are on the same horizontal plane, which means he has no chance to absorb something coming at him.Here’s a fun test; ask someone to standstraight up with their feet underneath their shoulders, then push them backwards on one shoulder.They’ll always take a step back and end up with their feet staggered.Now do the same thing, but have them start with their feet staggered; they will probably sway a bit, but probably won’t move much.Do it a third time, with them bending their knees in a staggered stance; they aren’t going to move.That illustrates the importance of having a good base.Penn didn’t have a good base and it came back to bite him.Green Bay’s outside linebacker group has been looking for an heir to Clay Matthews for some time now, and nobody has stepped up.Gilbert might be that man, and he might not be; only time will tell.Based on what we’ve seen so far in the preseason, though, the signs are encouraging.
