2. AJ Dillon, RB

The Green Bay Packers might need to do a slight overhaul of the running back position. Early on in 2023, it was looking like AJ Dillon was completely lost out there. He didn't look like himself, and the Packers weren't really benefitting by having him on the field. As the season has gone along, Dillon has done a little better, but his effectiveness per snap hasn't been great and he has just one touchdown this season.

Not great, considering how much time Aaron Jones has missed.

Dillon was a second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft for the Packers and I think that selection was ill-advised in the first place. I would be willing to bet both the Packers and AJ Dillon agree to move on from each other in 2024.

3. Josiah Deguara, TE

The Green Bay Packers really put the writing on the wall here with Josiah Deguara when they decided to use premium NFL Draft real estate on both Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft in the 2023 NFL Draft.

And those picks look like they are going to work out exceptionally well.

Deguara has never developed into anything more than really just a core special teams player. There's value in that, but this guy was a third-round pick and he's never played more than 35 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps, even with a desperate need at the position.
