Best free agency fit: The only free agent the Packers should seriously considering signing is one of their own: James Jones. Jones understands the offense, has great chemistry with Aaron Rodgers and played admirably in 2015.
Other free agency options: Brandon LaFell might intrigue the Packers, but would he be an upgrade? Injuries wrecked his 2015 season, but he did catch 74 passes for 953 yards and seven touchdowns en route to the Super Bowl with New England in 2014.
Beft draft fit: It’s unlikely the Packers take a receiver in the first round, but Baylor’s Corey Coleman would look good in green and gold. Coleman has speed, athleticism and versatility. He can take the top off a defense lined up on the outside, but he can also dominate in the slot.
As a rookie he would play a key role, and in the future Coleman could be groomed into the No. 1 receiver after Jordy Nelson walks away.
Other draft options: Assuming the Packers avoid the position until day three, Tajae Sharpe out of Massachusetts is a name to watch. Sharpe has the size, speed and route-running ability to make an immediate impact, and with some polish could be an excellent weapon for Rodgers.
Another day three target could be Toledo’s Alonzo Russell. The Packers reportedly had dinner with Russell, and the 6-foot-4 wideout has plenty of potential.
