The Green Bay Packers made a fascinating start to free agency. Talk about a rollercoaster ride. In less than a day, the Packers signed Josh Jacobs and Xavier McKinney but lost David Bakhtiari and Aaron Jones, with Jones joining the Minnesota Vikings.

Green Bay strengthened areas of need with two of the best players at their respective positions. Jacobs was the NFL rushing champion only a year ago, while McKinney is the post-safety Jeff Hafley needs for his defensive scheme.

However, the work is far from done, even at running back and safety. The Packers still need upgrades at cornerback, linebacker, and along the offensive line.

Green Bay has the option to sign more free agents and will enter the 2024 NFL Draft with 11 selections.

Round 1 (25): Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

Bolstering the offensive line depth is an urgent need for the Packers, especially after losing starting right guard Jon Runyan Jr. in free agency. Green Bay has an opening at right guard but could also search for an upgrade at center. Josh Myers had an up-and-down season and enters a contract year in 2024.

Oregon's Jackson Powers-Johnson can play at center or guard and has Pro Bowl potential at either position.

Powers-Johnson will have grabbed the Packers' attention at the Senior Bowl. Trevor Sikkema of Pro Football Focus named him one of the standouts in Mobile, Alabama.

"He was one of the top interior offensive linemen going into the week and has not only matched expectations, but exceeded them," Sikkema wrote. "He feels like a first-round player because of his dominance against all pass rushers."

Powers-Johnson can become an outstanding interior lineman in the NFL, regardless of position. The Packers could confidently start him at guard or center from Day 1.
