GM Brian Gutekunst already crossed off the first item on his 2021 offseason checklist by signing Kenny Clark to a blockbuster deal. The structure of the deal, with low cap numbers in the first two years, should key us in to the challenges teams will face with a shrinking cap number going into next season. The Packers have several key contributors on expiring deals, including LT David Bakhtiari, RB Aaron Jones, C Corey Linsley, and CB Kevin King. Gutekunst and cap specialist Russ Ball will have to continue to be creative if they intend to retain some core members of the team.

As important as OTs are in today's league, it's shocking how little the Packers have invested in the position over the past decade. Green Bay has used only two Day 1 or Day 2 picks on OTs since 2011 (Derek Sherrod RD1/2011 and Jason Spriggs RD2/2016). That strategy works when you hit on a 10-year starter in Bryan Bulaga (RD1/2010) and mine a talent like All-Pro David Bakhtiari (RD4/2013). With Bulaga gone and Bakhtiari potentially hitting the open market, it may be time to allocate some bigger resources to the position.

Michigan's Jalen Mayfield could be an attractive option. Mayfield has the athleticism to keep up with speed rushers and the movement skills to connect on the second level. He'd be a great fit in Matt LaFleur's wide-zone scheme, which emphasizes a lineman's ability to block on the move.

However, Mayfield may also embody many of the challenges and uncertainties of the 2021 class. Mayfield is a R-So that has started only 13 games. Scouts would normally be looking for progression and consistency as Mayfield takes on a larger role on the Wolverines' line. Instead, the Big Ten cancelled its fall season, and Mayfield declared for the draft. Though he has a significant ceiling, Mayfield's lack of experience may keep him in the latter half of RD1.

PACKERS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
