The Packers have serious needs at defensive end, linebacker, wide receiver, and tight end. Aaron Rodgers loves Tonyan, though, so it’s worth leaving that alone for now. If it were up to us, we would do everything possible to make a trade to acquire Deebo Samuel and extend him with an offer similar to that which was offered to Adams. Then we’d try to use our draft to try address the needs on the defensive side of the ball. Linebackers Devin Lloyd or Nakobe Dean would be great picks if one of them falls to 22; and edge rushers like Travon Walker, George Karlaftis, Jermaine Johnson II, or David Ojabo are players that might be available at 28 who could improve the edge.
