The Green Bay Packers still made the playoffs despite missing Aaron Rodgers for eight games, an inconsistent defense, and leaning on a rookie running back all year long.
However, with a full season of Aaron Rodgers and improving this defense in free agency with the signing of Julius Peppers and a solid draft, the Packers could make a run in the playoffs this year.
It seems like ever since safety Nick Collins retired, the Packers have always struggled to find a consistent safety. The Packers could really use a good safety especially in a division with Jay Cutler and that offense, Calvin Johnson, and Cordarrelle Patterson who could easily beat them over the top without a good safety.
A target for the Green Bay Packers at 21 would be Calvin Pryor out of Louisville if he makes it past Arizona at 20. However if he doesnt, the Green Bay Packers could trade down a few spots and take Deone Bucannon, safety out of Washington State who is projected as an early second but I believe he should sneak into the first.
Deone Bucannon gives you the best of both worlds with his aggressiveness in the run game and his play making ability in the pass game. He would be a big upgrade in Green Bay.
2. Tight End
With Jermichael Finely being a free agent and coming off a huge neck injury where his season is already in doubt, tight end is a big need for the Packers offense who usually move thier tight ends all around the field.
One tight end that would be perfect for this would be Jace Amaro out of Texas Tech. He was the prototypical move tight end in college, lining up in the slot, backfield and out wide on many of the teams snaps. He would be a perfect fit for this offense.
What I Would Do
If I were the Green Bay Packers I would absolutely address the defensive side of the ball and the safety position. This offense is too good already to worry about addressing in the first round and with Aaron Rodgers as the quarterback, he can make any later round tight end look much better than they are. Go safety Green Bay.
