The champions of Super Bowl XLV chased their title run with a 15-1 regular season and a pair of division-round playoff losses.  To get back to the Super Bowl and win it once or more times during the remaining career of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Packers need to address multiple needs, sooner rather than later.

Florio doesn't seem to think DE or S are needs. interesting. I would rather focus on those two positions than the clipboard holder.

Any team that loses their starting QB is done. Forthwith, I expect you to have QB as every team need. Also, retroactively go back and say that teams like the Vikings need a running back. After all, if they lose Adrian Peterson, they’re done, too, right?

I dont see WR being as critical as some other positions. They already have 3 quality receivers along with Finley. Would it be nice to have more for down the road? Sure but is a 4th Wr more critical than any other position? Maybe Finely's replacement. Probably not.

CornerBlitz.com has an interesting approach.
they lay out
high OLB, FS, RB
medium C, NT, QB
and low needs. LT, OG, WR

Wow wpr, those opinions are all over the place. Did any of them watch a Packers game?

DE, NT, S, C, LB, TE, LT, RB, WR.

I would say this is pretty much the row. In terms of rank, I think the first 3 are tops and maybe interchangeable. The last 6 are all nearly as important. We have more needs than picks, but if we can get starters at those first 3 or 4 positions, I think our team is right back in it.

These analyses are all over the map, which has a lot to do IMO with the many question marks concerning Packers injured last season and young players.

Sherrod, Bulaga, Bishop, and Perry are the most significant of those question marks. If you assume they will all be shaky, then O Line. ILB, and OLB are definitely the top positions of need. If you are not impressed with McMillian, then add Safety to that. I'm hopeful all of them will be solid, but we really won't know until the draft what Thompson/McCarthy think or know about those guys, as who they pick in the top half of the draft is hugely dependent on those five players being considered OK or not.

Myself, I think it is pretty obvious that D Line is the highest priority in the first round, and maybe another OLB even if Perry is solid in the second round.

I definitely think we don't need a center early in the draft or a RB or a WR.

We could be OK at: LB, RB, TE, LT depending on players returning from injury.

We are definitely not OK at DE, NT, S. I'm confident in EDS at C, but I'd like for them to add a pure mauler C for our future, freeing EDS to backup the Gs.

Bishop and Perry having good seasons will be really important for us. I like McMillian, but he doesn't look to be exceptional at S.
