1. Wide Receiver.
Current depth chart: Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, Trevor Davis, Michael Clark, DeAngelo Yancey, J’Mon Moore, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown
Even if Green Bay decides to go with who they think is the best five for the final 53-man roster, it would still be met with a lot of uncertainty after the top two. An injury to Adams or Cobb could put the Packers offense in a strain as far as moving the ball. Aaron Rodgers trying to move the ball without Jordy Nelson in 2015 led to his first sub 4,000-yard season in five years.
Geronimo Allison is the only other receiver with a start to his name and while Trevor Davis is impactful on special teams, his impression as a pass-catcher has been minimal.
At 6-foot-6, second-year man Michael Clark is imposing at the line of scrimmage, but he failed to show enough in practice to earn reps during the season. He finished 2017 with 75 snaps on offense.
If it comes down to one of the rookies making an early imprint in the offense, you would be smart to bet on J’Mon Moore. The former Missouri Tiger had the most steady impact in college as he used physical routes and strong hands on the outside.
“Well, we like young receivers, so I’m assuming that’s the way they’re going to keep going. I don’t know why you’d cut Jordy and bring in Dez, but he’s a talented player. He’s going to end up somewhere. If he ends up here, we’ll obviously welcome him with open arms and get him up to speed as quick as possible.”
Sounds like Gutekunst is going to stick to his guns.
