3. Equanimeous St. Brown
With the Packers’ lack of playmakers on the roster, someone will need to step up this year. Last year, Allen Lazard stepped up and made a lot of plays when the Packers needed them. He has played himself into the number two receiver spot behind Davante Adams.
The missing piece to the receiving corps is the slot position. This is could be where Equanimeous St. Brown comes in. He missed the entire 2019 regular season after suffering a season-ending ankle injury in the preseason. Before his injury, EQ was primed to get a good amount of playing time last year. He was showing up at the end of the 2018 season, where he started five of the final six games, grabbing 12 passes for 182 yards in those six games.
His size (6-foot-5, 214 pounds) could create matchup problems in the slot position. If he can avoid injury, he could be a big part of this offense, especially when teams will be giving Davante Adams a ton of attention, where EQ will likely draw single coverage every play.
Teams know players on the offense like Davante Adams and Aaron Jones. They are becoming aware of Allen Lazard. St. Brown could take advantage of that and possibly break out early in the season.
