Trading up may also be a good move for Green Bay

Wide receiver #2: Terrace Marshall Jr

This one is probably going to be hard to accomplish without a trade-up but that be the best option right now for the Packers to get a big-time WR. Terrace Marshall Jr. is different from other WRs that I want for the Packers because he is more of an outside WR prototype.

I’ve been very vocal about Green Bay drafting a slot weapon but Marshall may be too good of a prospect to pass up. Marshall has a great skill set to go along with a nice combination of size and speed.

He stepped up in a big way in 2020 with the departure of Justin Jefferson and the opt-out of teammate Ja’Marr Chase. Marshall started the first seven games before opting out of the rest of the season himself.

Over that stretch, Marshall proved to be the go-to guy for the LSU offense, racking up over 700 yards and 10 touchdowns in his short season. We all know that Green Bay loves their big, athletic freaks at wideout and Marshall is measuring up to fit that mold.

As I said earlier, I think a trade-up is needed for the Green Bay Packers to get their hands on Marshall but they just might be desperate enough to do it.
