8. Tight ends

  • Luke Musgrave
  • Tucker Kraft
  • Josiah Deguara
  • Ben Sims

It's probably a hot take to say the Packers' QB position is unproven and put it below the tight ends, but the Packers landed two of my personal favorite prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft at the tight end position, and I couldn't be more excited to see these guys get to work.

Luke Musgrave's sample size at the college level was relatively small, but I think he has a chance to be the steal of this year's draft. Tucker Kraft was on a possible first-round trajectory before suffering a season-ending injury early last year against Iowa. The talent at this position group is undeniable, these guys just need to go out and get the job done.

7. Wide receivers

  • Christian Watson
  • Romeo Doubs
  • Jayden Reed
  • Samori Toure
  • Malik Heath
  • Dontayvion Wicks

I wanted badly to place this position group higher, but I think by next year, it will be a top-five position on the Packers' roster overall. I expect Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs to take that proverbial "next step" in 2023 as they build chemistry with Jordan Love. We saw a lot of that unfolding throughout the preseason.

Jayden Reed was an excellent pickup in the NFL Draft for Green Bay as someone who can contribute immediately out of the slot. Samori Toure is a big-bodied, big-play receiver while Malik Heath and Dontayvion Wicks add value at the back end of the roster.
