Round 3 (92): Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson

Can you believe it? The Packers finally draft a wide receiver.

Receiver might not be a desperate need as it seemed a year ago, but that doesn’t mean the Packers’ No. 1-ranked offense wouldn’t improve by adding a pass catcher in the early rounds.

An Aaron Rodgers-Amari Rodgers connection just has a great ring to it, and the Clemson wide receiver could add something new to Matt LaFleur’s offense.

If there’s one thing this Packers offense lacks, it’s a wide receiver who is dominant after the catch. Think Deebo Samuel for the 49ers. That’s exactly the type of role Rodgers could have in Green Bay.

In his final year at Clemson, Rodgers caught 77 passes for 1,020 yards and seven touchdowns. With defenses already worried about Davante Adams and the possibility of Marquez Valdes-Scantling burning them deep, get the ball in the hands of Rodgers and let him run past defenders in the open field.

At long last, the Packers use a Day 2 pick on a wide receiver, the first time since Ty Montgomery back in 2015.

Green Bay’s offense is coming off an incredible year. With the addition of the Rodgers-to-Rodgers connection, it would be almost unfair for opposing defenses next season.
