In 2013, the safety position of the Packers stuck out like a sore thumb. There were no interceptions, lots of missed tackles and a number of blown assignments.
The Packers decided to do something about that this season. First, they let starter M.D. Jennings find work somewhere else, as they didn't tender a contract offer to Jennings.
The team also decided to move second-year cornerback Micah Hyde to safety. In addition to that, the Packers selected Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft.
The safety position was an area of weakness for the Packers last season. This season, it could be a position of strength.
Right now, the starters are Hyde and Morgan Burnett. However, Burnett has missed some time with ankle and oblique ailments, which allowed Clinton-Dix to get some valuable time with the starters.
And even with Burnett back as a starter now, Clinton-Dix has been playing in the dime package on defense most of the time in practice.
No. 21 has had a solid camp thus far, and he looks to get a fair amount of playing time, as the Packers use their nickel and dime packages on defense much more than they use their base 3-4 look.
Another safety who has impressed so far in camp is third-year player Sean Richardson. Richardson leads the team in interceptions in training camp at practice and looks much more comfortable in coverage as opposed to last year, when he was coming back from a neck procedure.
Bottom line, the Packers appear to be at least four-deep at the safety position in 2014.
