You’ve probably seen these lists before, but we have a little different perspective than everyone else. The Green Bay Packers have some work to do this offseason.
If they want to fill all of these needs, general manager Ted Thompson is going to have to venture outside of his comfort zone and participate in the NFL offseason beyond the draft.
We’re not going to suggest that’s a likely scenario, but it’s what will need to be done if the Packers are going to shore up all of these positions.
The draft simply isn’t going to net an impact player at each of these positions, even if the Packers hit on all of their choices. And no one does that.
At some of these positions, there just aren’t many potential impact players available in the draft. So the Packers will have a choice.
Look to other methods of player acquisition and make a real, legitimate, day one run at the Super Bowl or stick to the status quo and hope for the best. The latter could very well result in another wasted year of Aaron Rodgers’ career.
Before we get on with it, don’t be surprised when you don’t see receiver on this list. Despite the Packers’ failings in that department in 2015, they really don’t have room for another receiver, unless they cut Davante Adams.
You and I both know that’s a pipe dream after just two seasons.
