General manager Brian Gutekunst has his work cut out for him this year. Although the Packers’ roster is solid in most areas, there are definite areas where the team needs an influx of talent for depth purposes. But perhaps the most critical area that those outside the building are focusing on is the wide receiver position, which was made to be an essential need after the trade of Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders.
The Packers picked up extra picks in the first and second rounds in that trade, picks that give the team one of its biggest hauls of draft capital in decades. The team’s generally well-sustained success means that it rarely drafts outside the 20s, but this year could be one when the Packers package some picks to move up out of that range for a player they really like.
Keep it here at Acme Packing Company all weekend long as we discuss and break down all of the Packers’ selections. This space will continue to be updated with all of our Packers-related coverage.
Additionally, we will be hosting a live draft show on Thursday night for round one, as we have done the last few years, but we’re adding on another live show on day two Friday night, so please join us as we break down every pick of the first three rounds.
