Green Bay
Tyree Wilson

Texas Tech

EDGE



While there's still talk about being mathematically alive, the Packers' season is all but over. After giving up 363 rushing yards in a loss to the Eagles, FiveThirtyEight gives Green Bay just a 3% probability of making the playoffs. Even if the Packers win their next five games, that number jumps to just 45%. With Aaron Rodgers' future hanging in the balance, Green Bay's offseason plan could be anything between a total rebuild to one final Super Bowl push.


The Packers have had just one pick in the top half of RD1 since 2010, and they used that to take EDGE Rashan Gary with the 12th overall pick in 2019. With Preston Smith crossing the 30-year-old threshold and Gary rehabbing from a Week 9 ACL injury, adding a premier pass rusher could be the perfect balance of short-term upside and long-term development. Texas Tech's Tyree Wilson is a powerful EDGE that's racked up 14 sacks and 27.5 TFL over the past two seasons. After posting 50 pressures and a pass-rush win rate of 22% last season, Wilson has a chance to be one of the top pass rushers taken in 2023.
