4. Tucker Kraft, TE

The Packers doubled up at the tight end position in the 2023 NFL Draft, and they have discovered two players who will be featured in the offense for years to come.

Both Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft have been impressive this season, showing off their skills as receivers but also as blockers. Through the first nine weeks of the season, Kraft was virtually non-existent. He was pressed into additional action after Musgrave went down injured, and he's responded by having an outstanding second half of the year.

Now, just imagine both he and Luke Musgrave at full strength for this team...

5. Dontayvion Wicks, WR

The Green Bay Packers' 2023 NFL Draft class should probably be studied or win awards, or maybe both. Dontayvion Wicks was a fifth-round selection and has led Green Bay in yards per reception at 15.8.

Although he only has 33 receptions on the season, Wicks's usage has increased over the course of the season as he's become more comfortable in the offense and earned the trust of both his coaches and quarterback. Although the Packers have many options in the passing game right now, Wicks has proven that he can be the featured option when called upon and one of the top YAC players on the team.

It will be fun to see how his role expands in 2024.
