Yes, you did read that right – wide receiver.
There is a possibility Waller could make the transition to tight end at the pro-level, but he could also be a used as a dangerous receiver. In the Packers’ offense, perhaps a hybrid role would be best.
Reports suggest general manager Ted Thompson isn’t opposed to adding another wide receiver to the roster: NFL.com insider Ian Rappoport recently reported that the Packers were interested in former Denver Broncos wideout Wes Welker.
With two compensatory picks, the Packers will hit the clock nine times in the upcoming draft barring any trades, so they will have room to make a move at the position.
The general consensus is Waller will be a late-round pick, meaning he could be one of the steals of the draft.
