With the departure of Jordy Nelson, the Green Bay Packers are in need of an extra playmaker in their wide receiver core. Here are five they should consider.
The Green Bay Packers have lost a number of dangerous weapons this offseason including Jordy Nelson, Jeff Janis and Richard Rodgers. Okay, maybe I’m being facetious about the last two, but Green Bay still has a need at wide receiver given the concerning play of Randall Cobb over the last few seasons.
Davante Adams is the only reliable weapon Aaron Rodgers will have in 2017 amongst a number of other intriguing options including Cobb and the newly acquired Jimmy Graham. However, both have been wildly inconsistent over the last few years.
While there isn’t a top-notch wide receiver in the 2018 draft class, nor one the Packers should consider with their first pick at No. 14, there are some intriguing options on Day two or three. And that’s about where I expect general manager Brian Gutekunst to address the receiving corps if not for a round or two later.
Regardless, there are some sleepers in this year’s draft who could make a real impact on the team in a year or two. It will be important for Green Bay to choose wisely, as they can’t afford to miss on this year’s class.
If the Packers decide to go with a wide receiver, these five guys are worth taking a look at.
