With the NFL offseason officially underway, it’s time to turn the page to the upcoming draft this April. As the Green Bay Packers aim to build towards another Super Bowl run in 2021, which areas could they look to strengthen in the draft?

The Packers’ 2020 draft class is still discussed on a regular basis. Despite just about everyone expecting the team to enjoy one of the deepest wide receiver classes in recent memory, which also seemed to be one of their biggest needs, they opted against it.

Unsurprisingly, the Packers didn’t get a ton of production from their draft class in year one. But that was to be expected. Jordan Love wasn’t going to play. AJ Dillon would sit behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams on the depth chart. It was unfortunate Josiah Deguara and Kamal Martin dealt with injuries.

That was a draft class designed for the future. Love, of course, will potentially one day replace Aaron Rodgers. Dillon could be the starting running back next season with Jones and Williams hitting free agency.

But after Rodgers’ third MVP season and the Packers falling a game short of another Super Bowl appearance, what approach will GM Brian Gutekunst take in this year’s draft?

With some help from The Draft Network’s mock draft machine, I put together my first three-rounder of the year.
