The Green Bay Packers are coming off a disappointing 37-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. That display showed a real need for improvement from their defense.

So far this offseason, the Packers haven’t done much in terms of making additions to their roster to improve defensively. They signed linebacker Christian Kirksey in free agency from the Cleveland Browns and while that’s helpful, it’s not nearly enough.

The Packers gave up an average of 352.6 yards per game (18th) and 19.6 points per game (9th) last season. They were particularly underwhelming at stopping the run and not only did that show at times in the regular season, it was further exposed by the 49ers in the playoffs.

With many of the top free agents off the board, the Packers may need to turn to the NFL Draft to add impact players. The No. 30 pick will be their best chance of adding a potentially dynamic player to the defense, perhaps in turn, translating to improved results as a unit.

With that being said, here are three perfect defensive targets for the Packers with the No. 30 selection in the 2020 NFL Draft.
