While rookie receiver Greg Jennings had a strong first campaign, the team will look for more help at wide receiver, and it could be during the draft once again. Donald Driver is in his thirties, and while he may continue to play at a high level for a bit longer, he battled injuries during last season. The team also lacks talent after the top two receivers, and while Ruvell Martin has filled in well enough at times, another target is needed heading into this season to either help the passing attack overall.
In the backfield, Ahman Green is gone, creating a significant need for a true number one running back. The team could look for a back early in the draft to set themselves up for the future. There is depth at the position with Vernand Morency and Noah Herron, but neither player instills the type of confidence in a back that the team needs.
The defense also has definite needs and cornerback is a position that stands out. Charles Woodson’s injury history could be reason enough for the Pack to look for another cornerback as insurance, even though Woodson had a very productive 2006 season. With both starting cornerbacks in their thirties, the Pack will need to add youth in the secondary with an eye on the future.
