Winning is important, but the top priority for the Green Bay Packers this season is to see progress from their young players. And it's happening.
Green Bay's rookie class has shown so much potential, while Jordan Love has made significant improvements.
But the work continues in the 2024 offseason. Before general manager Brian Gutekunst can figure out how to strengthen the roster via free agency and the draft, he must first determine which players to bring back.
These seven Packers must finish the season well to prove why they should be back in 2024.
Josh Myers is too inconsistent. He makes a lot of smart plays throughout a game, but there are too many costly mistakes. His missed block cost the Packers a potential game-sealing touchdown pass to Christian Watson against the Detroit Lions.
Watson was wide open, and Love was ready to fire his way. The rest of the offensive line provided good protection, but Myers was beaten instantly, forcing Love to hurry his throw.
Myers is a solid starter, but the Packers may be able to upgrade the position in the draft. Another option would be to draft a guard or tackle, allowing them to move Elgton Jenkins or Zach Tom to center. Myers needs to play well in December.
