3. Add offensive playmakers

The Packers could lose both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams in free agency. Freeing up some cap room could allow them to re-sign one, but it’s also possible they decide to use the money at other positions and roll with AJ Dillon as the number one back in 2021.

Dillon certainly showed potential in his rookie season with 242 yards and two touchdowns as the third-string RB, while averaging 5.3 yards per carry. Even with Dillon as the potential starter, bringing in more depth in the draft would be needed.

Another area to look at is wide receiver. The Packers proved they didn’t desperately need a receiver as many of us thought by finishing the regular season with the No. 1 scoring offense. That said, imagine the possibility of this offense if they do add another pass-catcher.

What this offense lacks is a fast receiver who excels at picking up yards after the catch. That should be an area to look at in the draft.

Now, it’s a big if, but what if the Packers were able to land a top free-agent receiver? They were in for Allen Robinson before he signed with the Chicago Bears. A free agent again, could Gutekunst offer Robinson another deal this offseason? A Davante Adams-Robinson combination would be close to unstoppable.

Chris Godwin, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Will Fuller are also free agents.

Signing a top free agent won’t easy given the cap situation, but if the Packers truly go all-in and make some room, it could make a huge difference for this team in 2021.
