2. Continue to build the offensive line

The Packers have drafted at least one offensive lineman in all but one of Brian Gutekunst's six draft classes. You can never have enough talent across the line, as injuries often pile up. Green Bay likely has four starting positions locked in for 2024, but depth is an issue.

If David Bakhtiari departs, the Packers lack depth behind starting tackles Rasheed Walker and Zach Tom. They also don't have much backup at the interior positions, especially if Jon Runyan Jr. signs elsewhere in free agency.

The Packers love versatility along the line and should add multiple linemen in the draft. They don't necessarily need to go early—Gutekunst is a master of landing starters on Day 3—but restocking the offensive line depth is a must if the Packers have serious Super Bowl aspirations.

1. Rebuild the secondary around Jaire Alexander

Jaire Alexander isn't going anywhere. Gutekunst made that clear. But can we name a guaranteed starter at any of the other positions in the defensive backfield? Carrington Valentine has a good chance, but the Packers can still improve at outside corner.

Three of Green Bay's starting safeties and its slot corner are free agents. Quite honestly, they could all be gone. The Packers must add multiple defensive backs this offseason, likely through a combination of free agency and the draft.

They need a safety who is comfortable playing in a single-high system, while slot corner remains a significant issue. Strengthening the secondary is urgently needed to overcome the best passing attacks the NFC has to offer.
