Priority number one for the Green Bay Packers this offseason: Help Jordan Love.
Love is set to take over as the Packers' new starting quarterback in 2023, but he needs to be surrounded with talent.
Wide receiver and tight end should be near the top of the to-do list entering the draft. The receiving corps lacks depth. However, just as important is ensuring Love is protected by his offensive line.
There is great wide receiver and tight end depth in this class, but the time to add a top tackle is in the first round.
Packers pre-draft visit should please Jordan Love
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Packers are hosting Tennessee offensive tackle Darnell Wright for an official Top 30 pre-draft visit.
This should please Jordan Love for a couple of reasons. The first is that Darnell Wright is an excellent player with sky-high potential. The second is that even if the Packers don't draft Wright, this is a good sign that they will be in the mix for a tackle early on.
Wright could -- and should -- be a top-15 pick.
"He has tremendous potential as a pass protector in the modern NFL, and at his maximum, he can be an impact starter — well worth the price of a first-round pick," wrote Ian Cummings of Pro Football Network.
According to Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus, Wright only allowed one pressure up against Alabama's star pass rusher Will Anderson Jr. Performances like that one highlight why Wright is a top prospect in this draft and ready to make an immediate impact in the NFL.
In Wright, the Packers would be getting a rock-solid right tackle to pair with All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari. Yosh Nijman could cover both positions, while Zach Tom and Elgton Jenkins also have the versatility to play at either spot.
It won't be surprising if Wright is the first tackle off the board in the first round. He would be a great pick for the Packers at No. 15.
His visit to Green Bay is excellent news for Jordan Love.
