It should come as a shock to absolutely nobody that has followed my writing so far that I am not at all a fan of how the Green Bay Packers front office has assembled its receiving corp. While there is almost certainty a definite six set to make this roster barring injuries, the talent pool is rather shallow and a seventh addition to this corps would vastly improve its ceiling in the passing game. At the moment it appears that Allen Lazard, a slow blocking receiver is set to make this roster. In addition, slot receiver Randall Cobb and veteran playmaker Sammy Watkins seem poised to land on this roster now. Sammy Watkins has not played a full season since his rookie year in 2014. Young draft picks from the last two years Amari Rodgers, Christian Watson (who is still on PUP) and Romeo Doubs also seem set to make this team. Rodgers had an abysmal rookie season and hoping on his development alone, plus the development of a day three pick in Doubs could certainly spell doom for the team, regardless of what the fans want to believe. That is why I have compiled this list of five wide receivers the Packers should target through both free agency and the trade market. All of these players can be bought on the low and fit into the Packers hamstrung salary cap.
Great article, Cody!
