2. Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

Upgrading the interior offensive line is an absolute must for the Packers. Elgton Jenkins is the only guaranteed starter at guard or center, and the Packers lost their starting right guard, Jon Runyan Jr., in free agency.

Oregon's Jackson Powers-Johnson can play any of the three interior offensive line spots. Right guard is the most pressing need along Green Bay's offensive line, but Powers-Johnson could also be an upgrade over Josh Myers as the starting center.

Want to improve your run game with Josh Jacobs? Draft Powers-Johnson, who Pro Football Focus named the strongest run blocker in the class.

"He earned an 85.2 PFF run-blocking grade with a 15.7% positively graded run-blocking percentage, and he only recorded a negative run-blocking play on 10.5% of his run-blocking snaps," writes Trevor Sikkema of PFF.

The Packers don't tend to draft interior offensive linemen on the opening day of the draft, but Powers-Johnson is worth making an exception for. He has Pro Bowl potential no matter where he lines up and is outstanding in both the pass and run games. The interior offensive line was an issue for the Packers last season, especially in run-blocking. Powers-Johnson would go a long way to fixing that.
