The only try out Antonio Brown is getting is for a straight jacket. Something not quite right with him. Packers don’t need that type of drama. They already have enough of that, thank you.

#1: WR. period. Packers know it and so does every team in the league. Anyone who says relax on this position should have their head examined. Doesn't mean they need to spend the #22 and #28 on WR, no, but better be one of them. 1st round vs other round statistics show this is true despite the exceptions.
#2: Edge. Injury or downtime for this position and it's trouble. You can't get to the QB and you're gonna get burned.
#3: Safety. No one sees it, but this is needed before next year. Savage and Amos are probably going to be gone after next year. Savage has been an inconsistent disappointment anyway. Amos will probably lose a step, but best option at this point. If not, then what? No one currently on the roster is going to step in with above average skill.
#4: RT. Tackle depth is needed. More likely - starter. How many years have the Packers started and ended with the same starting 5. That's what I thought. Bakh and Nijman could man LT and RT respectively, but one is still coming off injury and the other needed help at times. Jenkins is coming off injury and should be a LG anyway where he is an All-Pro. Steno is great coach, but as great as he has been they need to stop working with a patchwork Oline. It has failed the last three playoffs even if it was a dumb shuffling of the Oline. Was it because Nijman couldn't play RT? Like asking a left handed boxer to play right handed? I don't know, but should give pause.
#5: TE. Tonyan is it and coming off injury. I don't see how anyone else is realistically a No,1 TE. I just don't see it. Could they get by, perhaps, but most really good teams have a good No. 1 TE. I said most, not all.
#6: DL. This may rate higher than TE. Reed was a needed sign, but then what? Clark obviously, but Lowry, really? c'mon. Hope that TJ Slaton improves. Packers have a very good secondary. Throw in a very good DL front and this Defense might become elite.

Personally I think all can be improved through the draft. I also don't believe they can only be improved by a vet. That's BS. Stop believing the Packers mantra on this. Rookies do start and can do very well. That's past FO thinking that has to be abandoned.

Speed? Rico Gafford, 4.26, 40 time. Of course, he needs all of the other skills that go with being a WR. How about returner?
