1. Green Bay Packers

The Packers need a receiver. Plain and simple. It is unlikely that they will improve the unit before the start of the 2020 season, so it is a must that they do so prior to 2021.

They added Devin Funchess, who is coming off a torn ACL, and that was all. Despite the expectations, the Packers decided not to draft a receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft. 

Green Bay still has an elite receiver in Davante Adams, but their depth is nonexistent. Funchess ended up opting out of the 2020 season. Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdez-Scantling will see significant time. Aaron Jones had a breakout season in the backfield, but will also be a free agent following the 2020 season. Tight end Jimmy Graham is now in Chicago, which leaves Jace Sternberger as the No. 1 option at the position.

Cooper Kupp is a receiver that would work well with Aaron Rodgers. The window is closing on No. 12. The Packers traded up to draft Jordan Love in the first round and it is only a matter of time before Matt LaFleur makes the switch.

It would behoove the Packers to add strong weapons around their future Hall of Famer before it is too late.
