GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- While the Green Bay Packers' most pressing need is at running back, there's still a lot of different ways the team could go in Saturday's draft.

Greg Olsen of Miami is a deep threat at tight end, a position of disappointment last season in Green Bay.

The club also could use another wide receiver to complement Donald Driver and last year's rookie standout Greg Jennings.

Wide receivers that could be available at the 16th pick include Ted Ginn Junior of Ohio State, Robert Meachem of Tennessee and Dwayne Bowe of LSU.

Picking another linebacker to go alongside last year's top pick A.J. Hawk would also give the Packers one of the best young corps in the league.

Top linebackers include Penn State's Paul Posluszny, Miami's Jon Beason, Florida State's Lawrence Timmons and Mississippi's Patrick Willis.
