2. Offensive Tackle

The Green Bay Packers are undoubtedly looking at a reshuffling of the deck at the offensive tackle position, probably for certain on the left side. I think there's definitely something to work with when you look at young players like Rasheed Walker and Zach Tom, a couple of late-round picks that were tremendous finds by Gutekunst and the scouting department on Day 3 of last year's draft.

But the Packers can absolutely upgrade at left tackle, and I think it's going to come at the expense of David Bakhtiari, whose time with Green Bay could be coming to an end. The Packers are certainly more likely to find a player in the NFL Draft to fill this hole than in NFL Free Agency, but you never know.

3. Interior offensive line

Josh Myers has finally started to come along for the Packers at the center position this year, but the guard position could use some attention. Specifically, the Packers will need to weigh up whether or not they're going to make Jon Runyan Jr. an offer to stay in free agency, or if they're going to let him walk.

And then beyond that, are they going to simply insert Sean Rhyan into his spot in the starting lineup? Royce Newman's not the answer in the starting lineup, so it's possible we could see the Packers kick Elgton Jenkins out to the left tackle position and perhaps try to upgrade both guard positions depending on what players become available to them throughout the course of the offseason.
