Davante Adams and Randall Cobb are obviously locks, with Adams poised to take over the lead role. Cobb is going to be very important to this offense, he is going to have to produce in order for this passing attack to play at an elite level.
Geronimo Allison is almost assuredly a lock to make the 53-man roster. Out of all the players outside Adams and Cobb, there are three rookies and one UDFA receiver, Michael Clark, who had four catches in 2017 for 41 yards. Allison is the only other player on the roster, besides Adams and Cobb, who has seen meaningful time in multiple seasons. Allison is expected to jump into a much more involved role in the offense this season.
I believe, based on the draft and free agent moves, that the Packers are clearly making a shift towards becoming larger and more physical in the receiving game. They went out and got Jimmy Graham (6-foot-7) in free agency, then drafted J’Mon Moore (6-foot-3), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (6-foot-3), and Equanimeous St. Brown (6-foot-5). This, along with the fact that the Packers moved Michael Clark up last season from the practice squad, instead of DeAngelo Yancey, tells me that they have more trust in Clark than Yancey.
Also due to that shift, along with some offseason troubles, is the reason that I don’t see Trevor Davis making the team this year. First-round pick, Jaire Alexander, could certainly fill Davis’ slot as a returner, with his blazing fast speed and college experience returning the football.
