For the past two seasons the Green Bay Packers have fallen one game short of returning to the Super Bowl. But Colin Cowherd believes that the Packers can finally get over the hump if they take his draft advice.

On Thursday's edition of The Herd, Cowherd made it clear that the Packers must add a cornerback and a wide receiver. He believes that those are the only two real holes that the team has.

Taking it even further, Cowherd argued that the Packers should do everything in their power to plug those holes. He said that since the Packers' first round pick in 2020 - QB Jordan Love - didn't even play last year, they owe it to Rodgers to draft a player who can contribute immediately.

"The Packers owe it to Aaron Rodgers and themselves," Cowherd said. "You need a cornerback and a receiver. Trade all your picks to get them."

The Green Bay Packers went 13-3 in 2020, earning the top seed in the NFC while Aaron Rodgers took home the NFL MVP award. But a controversial finish to the NFC Championship Game cost them a return trip to the Super Bowl.

In the weeks that followed, rumors began to emerge that Rodgers has been getting increasingly frustrated with the Packers and may not finish his career there.

Drafting a wide receiver or plugging their hole at cornerback would go a long way towards mending the fence.

Should the Packers take Colin Cowherd up on his advice and draft one of those two positions tonight?
