The fact that the safety position needs the biggest upgrade shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.
Throughout the 2013 season, the Green Bay Packers failed to get any type of consistent production from any of their safeties. Jerron McMillian started for the injured Morgan Burnett early in the season, but he played so poorly that he was eventually released during the season.
As for Burnett, he was a major disappointment once he was healthy. He failed to ever become the leader of the secondary, and his playmaking skills, with which he had thrived in recent seasons, were completely absent.
The other starting safety, M.D. Jennings, was even worse than Burnett, finishing the season as the 67th-best safety in the league according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required). Luckily, Jennings is a free agent this season, and it'd be a major surprise if the Packers offer him any type of contract.
In order to upgrade this position, Green Bay either needs to spend an early draft pick on a player who can make an instant impact or spend some serious money in free agency on a quality veteran.
