Previewing the Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver competition.
With the offseason seeing the departure of a GM and veteran players, the Packers will likely field a team full of new faces in 2018.
Last offseason, the question of which wide receivers would make the 53-man roster was one of the most polarizing discussions among Packers fans. The same will be the case this year.
Jordy Nelson and Jeff Janis are both gone. That opens up two roster spots for new wide receivers to possibly fill. Also, inconsistency from Trevor Davis and Geronimo Allison makes it so that their spots are not necessarily guaranteed.
Let’s look way ahead to the 53-man roster that will be declared after training camp and the preseason.
The Packers will likely carry five, maybe six receivers on the roster. They could have as many as seven, but I’d be very surprised if this was the case. For what it’s worth, they had five wide receivers on their initial 53-man roster last year.
First, let’s start with the guys that are guaranteed to make the team.
Randall Cobb and Davante Adams will be on the roster, that much we know. However, nobody outside of those two have proven themselves to be a necessity at wideout. This will make the rest of the competition very interesting, to say the least.
Which receivers will make the team?
