The running back position should look different next year. We're not sure if Aaron Jones will be around much longer or if his body can hold up. A.J. Dillon is a free agent and shouldn't be brought back. That's why the Packers go with one of the better running backs in this class, Ohio State's TreVeyon Henderson.

Henderson is your typical Ohio State running back who does a lot of things well. He's explosive with his cuts and bursts through holes with the ability to get going in a hurry. Great vision, footwork and tackle-breaking round out his top traits. As someone who would come in and potentially become the no. 1 back, Henderson could do it all.

The Packers are going to need to figure out their cornerback room after this season. Aside from Jaire Alexander, I wouldn't say anything is set in stone, here. Already trading Rasul Douglas and having to decide whether or not to re-sign Keisean Nixon, who's more of a special teams guy anyways, should give the Packers plenty to think about at corner.

Drafting Auburn cornerback D.J. James here in the third round at no. 80, though, makes things a bit less stressful. At six feet, James has good size and length. He is best described as an instinctive and smart player with above average ball skills.

If he can put on a little more muscle (he weighs 175lbs) that would help. Otherwise, James might be best suited in the slot.
