9. WR Amari Rodgers
Amari Rodgers is coming off a difficult rookie season, but he will be expected to step up in year two. Rodgers barely featured on offense, making just four receptions in the regular season. His biggest opportunity came on kick and punt returns, but Rodgers struggled on special teams too.
Still, it is no secret that the receiver competition is wide open in Green Bay. Following Davante Adams’ departure, there is no clear WR1.
That is not to say that Rodgers is ready to become the Packers’ top wide receiver, but he can certainly help his snap counts increase by impressing over the summer.
If Rodgers can show improvements in the return game, the job could again be his. And if he begins to show some of his yards-after-catch ability from Clemson, he will begin to build trust with Aaron Rodgers and the coaching staff.
With the Packers drafting three wide receivers and signing Sammy Watkins, Rodgers will need to work hard for his opportunities.
In May, Packers wide receivers coach Jason Vrable said that Rodgers “already looks faster and stronger than he ever did”.
Rodgers needs to improve in year two. If he does, an increased role could await the former third-round pick.
