Health/ Depth on the Offensive Line
The injuries the Packers have faced this season are obviously one of the root problems for this team offensively, with the offensive line being at the helm.

With little depth throughout the entire offensive line, the Packers seemingly walk into games wounded with substituting either players from another position, players with little experience, or players who have been a total disappointment overall (See Don Barclay) when a starter is injured.
While names such as J.C. Tretter have been a bright spot for this offensive line, the faltering play of the group as a whole due to injuries has been concerning. When either Bryan Bulaga or David Bakhtiari are not able to go, the Packers walk into the game at an already huge disadvantage, with Rodgers having to scramble almost every play from pressure being brought on the outside.
Although injuries happen, the Packers front office would be smart to include some depth on the offensive line during the off-season, which would help this team immensely moving forward.
