The Green Bay Packers enter the 2021-2022 season with few question marks but undoubtedly one of the most pressing they need to solve before training camp begins is the tackle position,
David Bakhtiari will be sidelined for at least the beginning of the season and with the Packers deciding to let Rick Wagner walk in free agency, we don’t know a lot of what Brian Gutenkunst and company will do to address the 2nd most important position in the offense, behind the quarterback.
Here is the current depth chart according to ESPN.com–
Based on this listing and what we saw last season when Bakhtiari went down, we know that the Packers would like to kick out Elgton Jenkins to the left tackle position as Josh Nijam (the only other listed tackle) is nowhere near proven enough to warrant a roster spot, much less a starting role. Going Jenkins-Runyan-Patrick-Stepaniak-Turner looks stable enough but we also know that a good pass-rushing group can feast on this unit, so undoubtedly guys like Stepaniak and Lucas Patrick will have to take major leaps going into next season. While this could happen, it would be almost negligent for the Packers to not look to add depth at the tackle position.
