But Burks and Josh Jones both have SS skill sets in small LB bodies. And at times, the Packers defense will use this in an a very aggressive way... lining them up on slot WRs and doing anything and everything with them... from zone coverage, man coverage and maybe most interesting blitzing. Basically Jones/Burks would be replacing Burnett/Jones from the Bengal's game last year (video at the bottom).
I think this article (link right below) was very good at explaining how Burks will basically be replacing LB Josh Jones at weak-side inside linebacker spot. After some injuries (Brice) and disappointment (Evans) at Safety, the Packers moved Jones to Safety full time.
Here is the video from the Bengal's game, where Jones is used as a LB/SS tweener and how I think the might use Burks against certain types of offenses.
Basically Jones/Burks will be replacing Burnett/Jones in this video.
