1. Taliese Fuaga, T/G, Oregon State

There's a good chance Oregon State's Taliese Fuaga will be gone before the Packers hit the clock at No. 25, but he would be a home-run selection if he falls that far. Green Bay may view Fuaga as a guard, but it doesn't matter where he lines up—he is one of the best offensive linemen in the class.

"Arguably the top run-blocking lineman in the draft, Fuaga is quick into contact and creates immediate displacement with his aggressive mentality and stiff, controlled hands," writes The Athletic's Dane Brugler.

Fuaga played right tackle in college, but some teams may prefer him to line up at guard, making him a perfect replacement for Jon Runyan Jr. A combination of Fuaga and Zach Tom on the right side of the Packers' offensive line could be as good as any in the league, making life far easier for Josh Jacobs.

He is also an outstanding pass protector. Per PFF, Fuaga didn't allow a sack in his final two seasons at Oregon State.

The Packers need to upgrade the offensive line to give Jacobs a chance to become an All-Pro in this offense. Drafting Fuaga in the first round would be a game-changing move for Green Bay's rushing attack.
