13. Davante Adams, Wide Receiver
One of the few players who has a chance to finish in the top 5 of this list by the end of the decade is Davante Adams. Like several other successful Green Bay receivers, Adams was drafted in the second round. As a rookie in 2014, he contributed right away, playing in all 16 games with 11 starts.
The 6-foot-1, 215 pounder doesn’t have many flaws in his game. Adams executes his role in Mike McCarthy’s west-coast offense to near perfection, excelling at quick slants, hitch routes and bubble screens.
It was pretty well-known that Adams suffered the dreaded ‘sophomore slump’ during his second year in 2015. However, his skill-set has evolved in a way many fans could have never foreseen.
Adams boasts double-digit touchdowns in back-to-back seasons since his down-year in 2015. He fell just short of the 1,000-yard mark in 2016 (997 yards), and accumulated 885 yards in just 14 games last season.
With Jordy Nelson departing for the Oakland Raiders, Adams will have much to prove as the clear-cut No. 1 option in 2018. He has the skill-set, offensive scheme and quarterback to make it happen – it’s up to him to make it count. Because he’s still young, Adams could very well become the Packers’ all-time leading receiver in multiple categories.
