How do the Packers address tight end?

The Packers need a tight end, and it would be a huge surprise if they don't leave the draft with at least one, especially given the incredible depth in this year's class.

So, the question shouldn't be if the Packers address their need at tight end, rather how?

Think it's been a long time since the Packers last took a wide receiver in the first round? It's been even longer since their last Day 1 selection at tight end. You'd have to go back to the 2000 NFL Draft, when they selected Bubba Franks 14th overall. Many of the top tight ends in this year's class hadn't even been born then.

Will the Packers take a tight end at No. 13? Could they trade down and take one at the bottom of the first round or trade back into the first round? Perhaps they avoid the position on the opening night, instead focusing on Day 2.

Will the Packers select one tight end and leave it there, or could they add multiple?

Potential first-round targets include Utah's Dalton Kincaid and Notre Dame's Michael Mayer. On Day 2, options could include Iowa's Sam LaPorta, South Dakota State's Tucker Kraft, and Michigan's Luke Schoonmaker.

The Packers will have options, but how will they address their need at tight end?
