The Green Bay Packers must leave the 2023 NFL Draft with at least one of these five players.

It's draft month. In just a few weeks, the Packers will add talent to their roster. A new era begins with Jordan Love. Without Aaron Rodgers, it will be interesting to see how the Packers approach the draft.

Will it be business as usual, with GM Brian Gutekunst making similar moves to what we've seen in recent years? Or will a change at QB lead to a different draft strategy?

Regardless, the Packers have an opportunity to find upgrades at multiple positions.

Today, we'll look at five difference-makers they could add in the early rounds. They won't be able to draft all of these prospects, but if they can leave the draft with one or two of them, they should be delighted.

5. Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia

In the opening two rounds, a name to watch is Georgia tight end Darnell Washington. We know Gutekunst loves to draft Georgia players. Quay Walker, Devonte Wyatt, and Eric Stokes were all first-round picks over the past two drafts.

Will Washington become the next Georgia first-round pick to Green Bay?

Washington is 6-foot-7, 264 pounds, and is one of the best athletes in the class. He has a Relative Athletic Score of 9.88 out of 10.

A dominant blocker, Washington could step into the Marcedes Lewis role in the Packers' offense. But he also has the talent to make a difference as a receiver.

Washington would make an instant impact in Green Bay.
