There is no position on the Packers' roster in greater need of an upgrade than tight end. Green Bay's current top two at the position are Josiah Deguara and Tyler Davis. Their No. 1 tight end for the past few seasons, Robert Tonyan, now plays for the Chicago Bears.

Fortunately, the Packers could be spoilt for choice at tight end in this year's draft. We have already discussed Darnell Washington and his dominant blocking. Utah's Dalton Kincaid would bring something entirely different to the offense.

Explosive, athletic, and the best receiving tight end in the class, Kincaid could be the missing piece for the Packers at tight end.

"Kincaid is a plug-and-play prospect with the potential to make an immediate splash as a designated playmaker," wrote Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

A first-team All-Pac-12 last season, Kincaid made 70 catches for 890 yards and eight touchdowns at Utah.

Kincaid will likely go in the first round, so the Packers would probably need to draft him at No. 15 overall. Selecting a tight end so high might not make sense most years, but for a player as talented as Kincaid, it would be well worth it.

Not only would Kincaid fix a need, he could become a dominant pass-catcher in Green Bay.
