Later this month, the NFL Draft will arrive and fanbases across the country are sitting on pins and needles waiting to find out which players their teams will select. For the Green Bay Packers, you better believe there's added pressure for general manager Brian Gutekunst.

Last year, Gutekunst rocked the NFL when he used his first-round pick on quarterback Jordan Love. Seriously? Of course Aaron Rodgers was upset and he had every right to be. Now in 2021, Gutekunst has the chance to make things right.

Time and time again, it's been incredibly clear Green Bay needs some more help for Rodgers. Davante Adams is one of the best wideouts in the game, but how many times did we see a frustrated Rodgers after a different WR dropped a perfect ball? It just can't continue.

With Green Bay built to compete for a Super Bowl next season, Gutekunst can send a message to Rodgers by using the first-rounder on a pass-catching playmaker. This time, he needs to do so.
