One option the Packers could have is to use an early draft pick to find their future number two wide receiver, but use free agency to add depth at the position. That could be important if they decide to move on from Geronimo Allison in the offseason. If he’s available, Phillip Dorsett could be a good addition and potentially on an affordable, short-term contract.

Dorsett might not be the number two option in LaFleur’s offense, but he would be a reliable target who can make big plays. He’d also give the Packers another deep threat.

With the New England Patriots this season, Dorsett has caught five touchdown passes. Four of them were 25 yards or longer. His longest of the season was a 58-yard touchdown catch. In 2016, he had touchdown catches of 64 and 50 yards with the Indianapolis Colts.

Dorsett would make a great third or fourth option in the passing game, and he has the ability to make game-changing plays.

If the likes of Amari Cooper, Emmanuel Sanders and A.J. Green hit free agency in the offseason, Dorsett could slip under the radar. Along with the addition of an early-round draft pick, bringing in Dorsett would make sense for the Packers.
