Packers: 5 biggest needs on the roster entering offseason

ATLANTA, GA - SEPTEMBER 17: Davon House /
2 of 7
GREEN BAY, WI – SEPTEMBER 28: Akiem Hicks /

Outside of the top five

13. Fullback

The Packers have no worries at fullback. It’s not a priority position, and Aaron Ripkowski has the job. Urgency: Low

12. Center

Corey Linsley didn’t miss a single game this year and is locked in as the starting center. He’s been hit with injuries in the past and the Packers could do with more depth, but it’s not a major need. Urgency: Low

11. Running back

The Packers successfully fixed their running back problem last offseason. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams both impressed as rookies. Devante Mays hasn’t seen enough of the field to make an assessment. Urgency: Low

10. Safety

This one will depend on Morgan Burnett’s status in free agency. If he re-signs, the Packers have a deep and talented group at safety. Urgency: Low

9. Defensive line

Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark form a strong duo along the defensive line, and it was a rare bright spot on defense this season. Depth pieces could be added in free agency or the draft. Urgency: Low

8. Quarterback

Don’t be surprised if the Packers are in the hunt for a quarterback at some point. They could look to sign a veteran due to Brett Hundley’s struggles as the backup. If an opportunity presents itself, it’s not out of the question Green Bay could draft a quarterback for the future. Urgency: Low

7. Inside linebacker

Blake Martinez made a big jump in his second season, but the Packers could still benefit by adding another talented inside linebacker to join him. No longer a pressing need, but an area that could be strengthened. Urgency: Moderate

6. Guard

Jahri Evans was easily the Packers’ top free agency pickup a year ago, but does the 34-year-old have another high quality season in him? If he walks in free agency, Green Bay will be in the market for a guard, even if just to provide more depth along the line. Urgency: Moderate
