WR Will Fuller
Adding another wide receiver will probably happen at some point, and it wouldn’t even be a major surprise should it occur early in the draft. The Packers’ offense was one of the league’s worst at times last season, and if all the hopes are pinned to Jordy Nelson’s return from a torn ACL, then an insurance policy is in order.
Nelson is the wrong side of 30 returning from a significant knee injury, so there’s not only no guarantee he returns to his best, but also no certainty he will avoid another injury down the line.
If the Packers do turn to the wide receiver position early, it shouldn’t be on Notre Dame’s Will Fuller. Teams will fall in love with Fuller due to his speed — which is something Green Bay lacked at wideout last term — but drops plague his game. Fuller has drawn some comparisons to Ted Ginn, who has big-play potential but can frustrate with how many times he fails to cling onto the ball.
If one of the trio of Josh Doctson, Corey Coleman or Laquon Treadwell is on the board at No. 27 the Packers may have some interest in strengthening the receiver corps, but they should avoid Fuller on day one.
