4. Jeff Okudah, CB

I also brought up Okudah's name in a previous article looking at free agents who could have an interest in specifically playing for Packers DC Jeff Hafley, and I'm going to keep beating this drum until we see what the Packers do.

Okudah was the third overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. Injuries have plagued his career so far, which isn't exactly what the Packers are looking for given their issues with Eric Stokes, but I think the risk is worth the potential reward here. You could probably sign the 24-year-old Okudah to a one-year (prove-it) deal and reap the benefits if he's able to live up to his lofty NFL Draft status.

You can never have too many corners, and one this talented could be available for a bargain price.

5. CJ Henderson, CB

With Jeff Hafley on board as the defensive coordinator, I think one thing the Packers are obviously expecting (on top of better play-calling) is player development.

Although you're not going to take on every reclamation project in NFL free agency, players like Jeff Okudah and CJ Henderson are young guys at a premium position who are recent top-10 NFL Draft selections. When you bring in a coach like Hafley, those are the types of risks you want to take in free agency.

We've seen it work out for the Packers in the past with someone like De'Vondre Campbell, and I wouldn't be shocked to see it work again with some guys in the secondary like the talented CJ Henderson.
