Lee may be another offensive weapon the Packers could consider in the first round. He’s one of the top rated receivers going into the draft. He lacks the explosion of Sammy Watkins and the size of Mike Evans, but he’s one of the most dependable receivers in this year’s draft class.

He still has great speed and is an excellent route runner. After having a monster 2012 season (118 rec, 1721 yds, 14 TDs), Lee’s production as a junior slipped a little due to injury. He only caught 57 balls for 791 yards and four touchdowns, but Lee did showcase his abilities in the Las Vegas Bowl (7 rec, 118 yds, 2 TDs).

Taking a receiver in the first round isn’t really Ted Thompson’s style, so I would be a bit surprised if Green Bay drafted Lee with their 21st pick.

The Packers have plenty of depth at the position, even if James Jones leaves in free agency, but adding another top offensive weapon, like Lee, is never a bad thing for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense.
