If there’s one thing that the Green Bay Packers need to improve it’s their protection of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, as we saw last year what this team looks like without him. That has a lot of fans wondering if the Packers will dip into the tackle pool int he draft, but beat writer Tyler Dunne thinks Green Bay will likely roll with what they have at the moment.
It’d be a surprise if the Packers drafted a tackle again. The challenge for Green Bay is staying healthy. For now, it appears Bakhtiari will stay at left tackle with Bulaga returning to right tackle. Derek Sherrod will work at both spots, starting on the left side. Don Barclay, the starter at right tackle, could get work all along the line as well.
Health and age is starting to become a concern across the board for the Packers as it’s been four years since they hoisted the Lombardi Trophy and a lot has happened since. Still, as badly as they need to protect Rodgers, it appears that if they draft a tackle in the draft it won’t be as high as it may be should be.
