Michael Gallup, Colorado State
The first thing that stands out with Gallup is his ability to separate from his defender with ease. It’s an issue with the current group of Packers wide receivers.
Gallup is a great athlete with a good frame for a wide receiver. At 6-foot tall and 198 pounds, he has used his body to create separation from his defenders on numerous occasions.
During his two seasons at Colorado State, Gallup put up two 1200-plus yard seasons. In his 2017 campaign, he recorded an astounding 1,418 yards receiving on 100 receptions.
Gallup was a consensus All-American for 2017. He also finished as a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff award.
He dominated on the field and showed off at the NFL combine too.
He was a reliable target as well. Drops have been an issue for Packers receivers. This stat should blow you away:
However, Gallup has had some effort issues. On plays where he isn’t the primary target, there is a difference in how he handles his routes.
He has some things to work on, but the Packers have developed some of the best wide receivers in the league through the draft.
I’m sure working with the best quarterback in the league would help too.
