The NFL Draft is coming up and teams are preparing for every possible situation. Teams, their scouts and their front office personnel have been working non stop to analyze their current needs, assess their off-season strengths/weaknesses and prepare to make their appropriate selections for the draft. Given their draft choices and positional needs, every single one of the NFL’s 32 teams is going to have to be smart about whom they select in order not only to please their fans, but also to make the most of their opportunities going into next season.

In this edition of my strategy breakdowns, I will be previewing the cheese heads from the great state of Wisconsin: the Green Bay Packers. Last season the Packers were able to make it to the playoffs on a last-minute pass down the field to Randall Cobb for the win against the Bears on the last game of the season. This off-season while the majority of the Packers concerns are primarily defensive, they could use some additional players on offense as well.

In short, this article is going to recap the people lost due to free agency, the people gained due to free agency, current position needs and possible draft scenarios.
