@Albabbie not too many systems can produce quite like what operation fade walt has produced. May i suggest playing 1u on all of walts 0 unit picks, as he routinely hits those. Lol i should't bug, possibly bad karma
It goes without saying that Clay Matthews is a great player, but he would be better off at his natural edge-rushing position. The Packers simply haven't been able to find an adequate inside linebacker. Perhaps that'll change early in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Pick change; previously Kenny Clark, DT

Chris Jones, DT/3-4DE, Mississippi State
Datone Jones has been playing better lately, but defensive end is still a position that could be addressed, given that Mike Daniels is an impending free agent.
Pick change; previously Tyler Matakevich, ILB

Tre Madden, RB, USC
James Starks is an impending free agent in March, so the Packers may want to spend a mid-round pick on a backup for Eddie Lacy.
The Packers could still use help at inside linebacker next offseason. They've wanted a fast run-and-chase linebacker for years. Maybe 2016 will be they year where they address it early.
In 2015, Cravens has 70 tackles, 13.5 for a loss, 5.5 sacks, three passes broken up and two interceptions. He totaled 68 tackles with 17 tackles for a loss, five sacks, three interceptions and nine passes broken up last season. Cravens was moved from safety to linebacker last year, but that looks like a better fit for him in the NFL.
The 6-foot-1, 225-pounder is physical, strong and quick. As a freshman, he totaled 52 tackles with four interceptions, one pass batted and a forced fumble. Cravens was named a Freshman All-American and a All-Pac-12 honorable mention.

Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas
The Packers could use another tight end weapon, and this is a great value.
Henry has 44 receptions for 619 yards and three touchdowns in 2015. He has done a nice job as a blocker and receiver for the Razorbacks, but they don't use him enough in the passing attack. The 6-foot-6, 255-pounder is a well-rounded tight end who produced well last year, too. He was a good blocker for the Razorbacks' ground game while contributing 37 receptions for 513 yards and two scores. Henry had 28 receptions for 409 yards and four scores as a freshman.
The Packers have some veteran defensive linemen heading into free agency, so adding more talent and depth could be necessary.
This year, Adams has 39 tackles, 2.5 for a loss, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass broken up. He dominated the 2015 season opener against Louisville and seemed poised for a massive year, but that hasn't come to fruition. Adams recorded 43 tackles, eight for a loss and three sacks in 2014.
From a skill-set perspective, Adams seems to be an early-round talent. The 6-foot-4, 296-pounder has an interesting body type that could fit as a 4-3 three-technique or a 3-4 defensive end.
Though BJ Raji was able to make an impact in his first regular season game since 2013, his inability to stay healthy the past several years is still worrisome. Though not too many are familiar with Andrew Billings, he jumps out as a nose tackle that forces guards and centers to be at their best consistently, yet he still can shove them aside, creating opportunities to stuff the run for himself or his linebackers. Though this team could use a linebacker to help in that case, there aren’t any 3-4 ILBs that really appeal as worthy of a first rounder thus far. Also, there aren’t too many nose tackles who could start as rookies compared to the last draft class.
