4. Make offense the focus in 2024 NFL Draft

Green Bay has drafted a defensive player with 11 of its past 12 top picks. The only exception was Jordan Love in 2020. It's time to change that. The Packers did become more offense-heavy after the first round this year, drafting two tight ends, three wide receivers, and a running back, and that's the way it should continue in 2024.

Of course, it partly depends on how the board falls. The Packers won't reach for an offensive prospect if they believe a future star on defense is available, which is smart.

But the Packers have made defense their focus in the early rounds for over a decade. The offense needs some attention in 2024.

Green Bay has to determine which players are building blocks on offense. Despite his struggles this season, Pro Bowl guard Elgton Jenkins is one. Right tackle Zach Tom is another. At wide receiver, Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, and Dontayvion Wicks have all shown potential. Can any of them raise their game to the next level?

The Packers must find answers along the offensive line (more on that shortly), and running back may sit near the top of the to-do list if Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon depart.

This offense needs additional talent, and the Packers will have opportunities to get Jordan Love more help via the draft.
