The Green Bay Packers made significant changes to the roster during the NFL Draft, especially at positions of need, like safety, linebacker, and along the offensive line. The Packers made 11 selections in the draft before adding more talent in undrafted free agency.

Green Bay's safety room is almost unrecognizable from last season. Anthony Johnson Jr. is the only returning player who started a game. Johnson is joined by free-agent signing Xavier McKinney and three draft picks: Javon Bullard, Evan Williams, and Kitan Oladapo.

The Packers also used two top-91 picks at linebacker, drafting Edgerrin Cooper and Ty'Ron Hopper. Including undrafted free agency, Green Bay added five offensive linemen to the roster.

This added depth and competition puts a number of players on the hot seat. Which Packers are in danger of losing their jobs after the 2024 NFL Draft?

5. Josh Myers

Josh Myers shouldn't have too many concerns about making the Packers' 53-man roster, but he is no longer guaranteed to start at center. Myers only has one year remaining on his rookie contract, and after the NFL Draft, Green Bay has multiple options at center.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported earlier this month that the Packers view Zach Tom as a potential "Hall of Fame" center. If they believe Jordan Morgan can stay at tackle without needing to move inside, they may get the opportunity to have Tom shift to center, with Morgan and Rasheed Walker playing at tackle.

Another candidate is fifth-round choice Jacob Monk. The Duke product has experience at every offensive line position but is listed as a center by the Packers, which is where he will likely play. He has plenty of experience, having made 58 career starts in college. The Packers are excited about Monk, with Brian Gutekunst saying they "really wanted to acquire" him.

Monk has an elite RAS of 9.73 and is an excellent pass-protector. Per PFF, he allowed just one sack on 343 pass-blocking snaps last season.

Myers remains the frontrunner for the job, but the Packers have more options than in previous years and he will have to earn his spot.
