Best free agency fit: Nick Fairley is still available after completing a one-year “prove it” deal with the Rams. Given the fact he hasn’t been signed, it makes you wonder just how much Los Angeles believes he proved.
Still, for the right price the Packers could add some depth to the defensive line. If the contract is loaded with incentives, he might be motivated enough to play to his potential.
Other free agency options: Terrance Knighton is a proven run-stuffer, but he can’t do much else. He would add depth, but the best option would be to turn to the draft.
Beft draft fit: I love Andrew Billings out of Baylor, and the Packers shouldn’t hesitate to call his name if he drops to No. 27. Billings is a dominant nose tackle who has a blend of power and quickness. Plugging him into the front three alongside Mike Daniels would give the Packers two excellent linemen which could transform the run defense.
Other draft options: There’s a number of talented prospects in this year’s draft. Jarran Reed and Vernon Butler are first-round prospects, and later on the Packers could grab value the likes of Austin Johnson and Kenny Clark.
In such a deep class, there’s no shortage of options.
