4. Drake London

Another wide receiver who could go in the first round is Drake London out of USC. London has great size at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds.

Per Pro Football Focus, London had a college football-best 19 contested catches despite only playing in eight games because of injury. He is also PFF’s top-ranked wide receiver in this year’s draft class.

And despite only playing in eight games last year, he still finished with 1,084 yards and seven touchdowns.

London can line up on the outside, but The Draft Network’s Drae Harris believes that playing “as a big slot or off the ball at Z could free him to maximize his outstanding physical ability”.

The Packers were surprisingly average in the red zone last season, scoring on just 57.53 percent of their trips, according to Team Rankings. That was good for just No. 18 in the NFL. Adding a wide receiver like London could help improve their red-zone offense dramatically.

Where London is projected to be picked in the draft depends on which analyst you listen to. Some mock drafts have London going as high as the top-10 while others believe he will drop as far as the 20s.

If the Packers are able to select him on Day 1, London could be a difference-maker in Matt LaFleur’s offense.
