Most of the Green Bay Packers' roster building is complete. The team added players via free agency and the draft, and their work has now shifted to the practice field for organized team activities. Next month, preparations for the season reach the next level at the start of training camp.

However, the Packers still have work to do. It's still possible to upgrade the roster by adding free agents. Two years ago, Green Bay waited until June to sign free-agent linebacker De'Vondre Campbell. He became a first-team All-Pro that season.

As Matt LaFleur and the coaching staff work towards the new season, what three moves should general manager Brian Gutekunst make?

3. Packers should sign a veteran defensive tackle

The Packers made significant changes to the defensive line this offseason. They replaced veterans Jarran Reed and Dean Lowry with draft picks Colby Wooden and Karl Brooks.

Green Bay may decide to leave the defensive line depth as it is. Pro Bowler Kenny Clark leads the way, while expectations are high for second-year Devonte Wyatt. T.J. Slaton will likely start while Wooden and Brooks contribute as backups initially.

That's fine, but the Packers may regret not adding another veteran should they choose not to.

Slaton was a fifth-round pick two years ago but has only played a backup role on defense. Wooden and Brooks have potential, but they need time.

Signing a veteran defensive lineman to a one-year deal could help, particularly when it comes to stopping the run.
