4. Draft another wide receiver
This is an opinion that seems to divide Packers fans. Some agree that Green Bay should look to add another wide receiver in the draft, while others believe there is more than enough talent already on the roster. Allow me to make a case for the former.
Jordy Nelson will be back, but at 30-years old and returning from a significant knee injury, there is an immediate red flag. At the very least, the Packers need to position themselves to have a replacement ready two or three years from now when he walks away. Drafting a wideout this year gives them that opportunity.
But what if Nelson gets hurt again? Of course any player can get hurt at any time, but considering his age and recent injury history (required hip surgery before tearing ACL), extra caution is required.
Davante Adams didn’t give enough evidence that he can be trusted. He might turn it around in 2016, but should the Packers take that gamble? Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis still have a lot to learn, Janis in particular. His size, speed and athleticism is through the roof, but his route running left a lot to be desired last term.
Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb are playmakers, but neither fixes the Packers’ glaring deficiency on the boundary. Drafting another wide receiver not only offers an insurance policy if injuries strike, but could also bring in the eventual heir to Nelson’s throne.
Next: No. 3
