Nick Barnett (born May 27, 1981 in Barstow, California) is an inside linebacker who plays for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). The Packers drafted him out of Oregon State University in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft with the 29th overall selection.

Barnett had anchored the young linebacking corps ever since his rookie year in 2003, and has been the starting middle linebacker of the Packers since the start of his NFL career. With the team's shift to the 3-4, however, he was moved to inside linebacker.

On April 10, 2007, Barnett signed a six year contract extension worth $34.85 million, after extended negotiations with Packers management.

College careerEdit

Barnett was a four-year letter winner (1999-2002) at Oregon State, starting the last three seasons at strong side linebacker.

As a senior, Barnett was a first team All-Pacific 10 Conference selection. He led the conference in tackles with 121 (62 solo). He registered his single game best against the University of California in 2001 with 18 tackles (11 solo).

He majored in Business Administration and Communications.

NFL Professional careerEdit

Packers Green Bay PackersEdit

Barnett was named the GMC Defensive Player of the Week for games played on September 23 - 24, 2007 for his superb coverage against Brian Westbrook.

Barnett recorded seven tackles (five solo) that helped limit Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson to under 3-yards/carry in the Packers' 31 - 24 win over San Diego. He also had a timely fourth-quarter interception at the Green Bay 40 and returned it to the 2-yard line to set up the Packers' second score in a span of 56 seconds and to secure the victory.

Barnett missed much of the 2008 season after suffering a torn knee ligament during November 9th's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
