There were a number of ways the Green Bay Packers made upgrades this offseason. Some were made during the draft, while others during free agency. Another way the Packers could make upgrades was through players returning from injury or the reassigning of positions.
While all upgrades are good, there are obviously some that are better than others. The way we've determined which improvements were more important than others is by the impact that's expected to be made from the player or players. We've also factored in how weak the position was before any upgrades were made.
For example, the Packers didn't get much production from whoever was playing outside linebacker opposite Clay Matthews last year. So, the signing of Julius Peppers is a significant improvement over the likes of Nick Perry and Mike Neal.
