Wide receivers (6) – 16/53

Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Devin Funchess, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, Jake Kumerow

The biggest competition at wide receiver will come at the sixth spot. The top five looks set with Davante Adams starting with either Allen Lazard or Devin Funchess. Getting Equanimeous St. Brown back from injury is great news and he could have a breakout season.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling struggled down the stretch in 2019 but deserves another opportunity to prove himself. He started the season strong with 416 yards and two touchdowns in the first seven games.

If Reggie Begelton makes the 80-man training camp roster, he’ll be one of the players to watch. Begelton will push for a spot on the 53. However, due to the lack of an offseason program and no preseason, I’ve gone with the Packers keeping Jake Kumerow on the roster. Kumerow knows the offense and has Aaron Rodgers’ trust, and that will be enough for him to start the season on the 53.

Begelton could spend time on the practice squad this season but if Kumerow struggles, he would be a candidate to be promoted to the 53-man roster and earn some game time. The new practice squad rules could work in Begelton’s favor, however. With 16 available spots on the practice squad, the Packers could go with Begelton on the 53 and Kumerow being signed to the practice squad.
