Draft is primed for Packers to add another receiver
- The Green Bay Packers have drafted at least one wide receiver in five of the last six years as they continue to try and add weapons for Aaron Rodgers.
- The 2017 NFL Draft has plenty of intriguing physical specimens at the position who should be available in the middle rounds of the draft.
- Both Josh Reynolds from Texas A&M and Mack Hollins from North Carolina offer a rare combination of size and speed that make them effective deep-ball receivers who could fill that role in Green Bay in the third or fourth round.
- Over 60 percent of Hollins’ career receiving production came on throws that traveled more than 20 yards in the air.
- If the Packers want to add more slot receivers to the mix as they continue to move Randall Cobb around, Cooper Kupp from Eastern Washington or Austin Carr from Northwestern could offer the size and athleticism they tend to look for on the inside.
- Carr was our highest-graded wide receiver in the country last season at 89.5 overall, while Kupp finished in the top five in slot receptions and yards in 2016.
