2. Equanimous St. Brown, wide receiver

The Packers are loaded at wide receiver with five guaranteed spots on their roster (Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard and Amari Rodgers) and a number of others fighting for a sixth spot (Devin Funchess, Juwan Winfree and Malik Taylor). That could leave Equanimous St. Brown on the outside looking in.

St. Brown has struggled with injuries throughout his professional caeer, missing the entire 2019 season and the start of last year. Unfortunately, he finds himself on the injured list once again and was inactive against the Texans. Green Bay could decide to move on from their former sixth-round pick and use the additional week to evaluate the guys who are healthy.
