1. Equanimeous St. Brown
Another player who has slipped under the radar after missing all of the 2019 season is third-year wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown. The kind of impact he makes this year is completely unknown. St. Brown could fall down the depth chart and only make 20 catches, but there’s also a real possibility he’s a breakout star in this offense and exactly what the Packers need.
Overall, St. Brown had a solid rookie season back in 2018. He didn’t make a consistent impact but in moments he showed his potential. St. Brown has yards-after-the-catch ability and also showed he can make tough catches. St. Brown linked up with Aaron Rodgers on an outstanding back-shoulder pass in the final few seconds against the San Francisco 49ers in 2018. The adjustment EQ made to bring in the catch was incredible.
St. Brown played in 12 games his rookie season, finishing with 21 catches for 328 yards. We’re yet to see him play any snaps in Matt LaFleur’s offense, so it’ll be interesting to see how LaFleur plans to use him.
When discussing the wide receiver corps and the additions made this offseason, it’s easy to simply focus on the 2019 season. But don’t forget about St. Brown. He could be one of the biggest surprises for the Packers in 2020.
