Ranking Packers’ biggest offseason needs in 2021
Don’t expect any changes at quarterback this offseason. Coming off an MVP season, Aaron Rodgers is still the face of the franchise and that’s not changing anytime soon. Jordan Love remains the future, but perhaps the only question is whether his development gives the Packers confidence that he can be the backup ahead of Tim Boyle next season.
JK Scott remains frustratingly inconsistent, but his punting hasn’t been a major problem for this team. On occasion he kicks one short, but other times he can flip field position like few others. Would it be a surprise if the Packers get some competition for Scott at training camp and possibly make a change? No. But if they stick with Scott in 2021, that’s also fine.
Darnell Savage came on strong with four interceptions in the second half of the season while Adrian Amos is coming off a great second year with the Packers. With these two, Green Bay has an excellent starting pairing at safety. Adding some more depth to the secondary would make sense, but the starting duo is set for 2021.
Pro Bowler Elgton Jenkins is one of the best guards in the league, while Lucas Patrick also had a great year. If Jenkins moves to center, this could become a bigger need. However, the Packers drafted interior linemen Jon Runyan, Jake Hanson, and Simon Stepaniak last year. Maybe we see increased roles for any of these three in 2021. Another option is to re-sign Lane Taylor, who is recovering from a torn ACL.
