Trevor Davis is the new kid on the block, a fifth-round investment by the Packers. The view is to use his speed to help add to a offense that was accused of being too slow last term.
Why he should make the roster: Davis was drafted for a reason. His lightning speed will give the Packers another capable receiver getting downfield, and unlike Janis coming out of college two years ago, the California Bear has played at a high enough level to make a smoother transition.
Davis has a good work ethic and is said to have been spending a large chunk of his time studying the Packers’ offense. If he can translate this into flashes of potential in camp, he should land a spot on the roster.
Why the Packers should move on: What if Davis is the seventh-best receiver in camp? His route-running has been called into question at times and needs refinement.
If Jeff Janis and Jared Abbrederis show big improvements, Davante Adams bounces back in camp and Ty Montgomery is fully healthy, there might be no room for Davis on the 53-man roster.
It’s going to be a tough decision for the Packers, but competition is healthy.
