The Packers have talent at each starting position on the offensive line, but a lack of depth was exposed last year. David Bakhtiari, JC Tretter, T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton are all free agents in 2017, so there could be an eye on the future by selecting a lineman in this year’s draft.
Don Barclay is unlikely to return, so finding adequate backup this year is crucial to keep the face of the franchise protected.
Willie Beavers, Western Michigan: Beavers is an exciting prospect and the type of player the Packers would love to have. He has the skills to play at left tackle but the versatility to play across the line. JC Tretter can do this already, and bringing in another versatile guy to cover would go a long way.
Shon Coleman, Auburn: Coleman will turn 25 as a rookie in the NFL due to overcoming a leukemia diagnosis. Has the ability to play both tackle spots, and this versatility would make him an attractive option in Green Bay.
Brandon Shell, South Carolina: Expected to fall to day three, which could be where the Packers target an offensive lineman. Needs development, but has the potential to play tackle in the NFL. One to look out for.
