This team does not have a receiver issue on paper at all, but the lack of availability from Christian Watson over his first two years in the league could force Green Bay's hand in a tremendous wide receiver draft.

We don't typically see this team go with offensive skill players in round one, but with AD Mitchell scoring a 9.97 on the RAS scale, you just never know. This player would give Green Bay a clear WR1 and player to feature in the passing game. It could also open the door for a Christian Watson trade...
