Round 4 (131): WR Charone Peake, Clemson
Ted Thompson likes to regularly stock up on wide receivers to develop in the draft, and there’s no reason to believe this year will be any different. Based off of the growing list of wideouts who have visited Green Bay, it would appear Thompson is at least interested in pass catchers likely to be available in the middle rounds.
A name to look out for is Charone Peake out of Clemson. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder has the size, speed and athleticism which could excite the Packers, but two knee surgeries in recent years could hurt his draft stock.
Assuming his medical checks receive the green light, Peake can develop into a reliable weapon in the Green Bay offense. With his size and ball skills, he can make plays on the boundary. Peake has the speed and route-running ability to make plays deep or in the middle of the field.
For a mid-round target, there’s a lot to get excited about. If Peake can stay healthy, he could be a steal for the Packers in the fourth round. He would have time to develop his game and learn the intricacies of the Green Bay offense with good depth at the position already.
