The Green Bay Packers head into the offseason with some important questions to answer. Will they re-sign Keisean Nixon? Will David Bakhtiari be back? How will the defense respond to Jeff Hafley? While there are a lot of questions, there are also some areas where the Packers have solid depth and feel confident about their roster heading into the offseason. Here is a look at the Packers deepest positions heading into the offseason. These rankings do not include players who are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents this offseason as their return is obviously in doubt. The level of the returning players and their importance to the team are taken into consideration.

Packers Deepest Positions: Number Three, Defensive Line

It’s hard to believe the defensive line made this list after so many years of being a weak spot on the team. But after last season, this group has more depth than it’s had in years.

Kenny Clark earned Pro Bowl honors again and remains one of the few defensive linemen in the game who can stop the run and put pressure on the passer.

T.J. Slaton and Devonte Wyatt are the other starters here. Rookies Colby Wooden and Karl Brooks showed a lot of promise in their first season and have the potential to get better.

The change to a 4-man front next year under Hafley may encourage GM Brian Gutekunst to add a player here, but this is a solid and deep group. Hopefully, the new defense will also help improve the run defense in 2024.

This group has good depth and is solid but not spectacular.

Number Two: Tight End

Before the season started, tight end was considered a major need for the Packers. Gutekunst selected Luke Musgrave in the second round of the draft and then added Tucker Kraft in the third round.

The two rookies both contributed at a position that is difficult for rookies to thrive at and gave the Packers their best one-two punch at receiver since the mid-90s.

Musgrave is more of a downfield threat while Kraft’s strength is running with the ball after the catch. Both are willing blockers but need to improve their technique.

Musgrave finished with 34 catches while Kraft had 31.

Third tight end Ben Sims was solid in his role and may continue to grow into it.

Green Bay seems set at this position for years to come with Musgrave and Kraft. If they can both be healthy at the same time, they can give head coach Matt LaFleur and quarterback Jordan Love lots of enticing options in 2024.

Packers Deepest Positions: Number One, Wide Receiver

The Packers entered the 2023 campaign with a lot of question marks at the wide receiver position as the roster featured no players with more than one year of NFL experience. Early in the year, that inexperience was noticeable as the young wideouts struggled to run accurate patterns and to be in the right place at the right time.

By the end of the season, the youngsters quickly matured, and the team had more talent and depth at this position than they could have reasonably hoped for.

The Packers top three receivers on the depth chart are Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and Jayden Reed. Watson has the potential to be a game breaker if he can stay healthy and on the field. Doubs is steady and skilled while Reed led the team in catches after quickly showing he could handle life in the NFL.

Rookie Dontayvion Wicks also showed a lot of promise and ability. He finished third on the team with 39 catches and showed the ability to gain separation and get deep.

Both Bo Melton and Malik Heath played well when they were given the opportunity. That left Samori Toure a very limited role.

The Packers have talent and depth at the receiver position. The best part may be that this group is still learning and has room to improve in 2024 and beyond.

This is the deepest position on the Packers roster heading into the 2024 offseason.
