1. Add multiple wide receivers

So let’s start with the most obvious need which is at wide receiver. Green Bay’s depth chart at the position is painfully thin with Adams gone and Marquez Valdes-Scantling a free agent. The Packers need to be active in their search for reinforcements at wide receiver, and that should include both adding a veteran and a rookie.

Simply drafting two wide receivers would be a gamble. The Packers would be substituting Rodgers’ incredible chemistry with Adams for a couple of first-year players who may take time to develop.

The Packers should first explore free agency and potential trades. Maybe that means signing Odell Beckham Jr. or making trade offers around the league. They should also draft a receiver in the opening two rounds with the additional picks they have.

Add in a veteran receiver, a rookie in the early rounds, along with Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, and Amari Rodgers, and the wide receiver corps will look a lot stronger.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Packers are looking to add another veteran receiver.

Many of the top free-agent receivers like Chris Godwin and Allen Robinson have signed elsewhere, but there’s still time for the Packers to add a talented veteran.

With Adams gone, they must add a veteran receiver and draft one early.
