With the Smith Bros and Rashan Gary ahead of him, will Campbell be able to make an impact for GB this year?

He won't be playing OLB. He will split snaps with Barnes & Martin. Good depth signing IMO but nothing really more. Probably isn't much of a downgrade to any of our other ILBs assuming there isn't improvement from last year (both starters were rookies).

IMO Campbell is really underrated. If this is just for depth it’s probably a really good signing.

Agreed. Sad we had to let him go. Could easily see him ball out in GB.

He's not an OLB. ESPECIALLY not in a 3-4. Can we change the title?

What position is he then?

In a 3-4? ILB. He's a Mo. ESPN and Packers sites list him at ILB. He was an ILB with the Cards. He plays off-ball. Only time he didn't was listed as an OLB was with the Falcons, but he was still off-ball, and as @FalconFan13 stated, he was listed as a SLB. Packers have a 3-4. In their scheme, he'd be an ILB. Could be their starting Mike imo, if not he's likely their starting Mo. 

I really liked him for the Cards, but it was pretty much how he was for the Falcons. Completely dominant and all over the place some games, and on others you're wondering if he's sitting out or something because you don't hear his name called or see him.

Thats about the best description you could say for him lol.  The potential to be above avg and too very good is there and it shows from time to time but far to often he goes quiet for patches of like 3 to 4 games at a time.  Then for like 2 games in a row he looks like a true pro bowler talent and dissapears for another 3 to 4.   With that said as long as you don't ask him to do way to much he is more than serviceable for a team with other good talent and usually won't hurt you.  His best trait is probably covering RB's or TE's in the mid range space he's got pretty good athleticism and solid range in coverage for someone his size.

he was good for the 1st 5ish gms then disappeared down the stretch  

That's exactly what I think, too! I thought that player that we saw in flashes in Atlanta, that game-changer, had finally broken out and been a top player, but then he just vanished except for one player here or there over the last half of the season. I really want him to do well and just stay consistent wherever he is.
