After an early exit in the 2011-12 NFL playoffs, Ted Thompson will be looking to add quality young players on both sides of the ball in hopes of returning to the Super Bowl in 2013.
Throughout the 2011 season, the defense was suspect. Subsequently, the Packers allowed a league record amount of yards and finished near the bottom in sacks, ultimately leading to their atrocious showing against the New York Giants.
On the offensive side of the ball, things are more stable, but not without question marks. Pro-Bowl center Scott Wells, tight end Jermichael Finley and starting running back Ryan Grant are all free agents, while Donald Driver is approaching the end of his career.
In order for the Packers to make another playoff run next season, there will need to be an influx of quality players from the 2012 draft.
