1. Romeo Doubs is Packers WR1, not Christian Watson

This has less to do with Christian Watson, who has received rave reviews for his work in the offseason program, and more to do with the Jordan Love-Romeo Doubs connection.

Every quarterback has a go-to receiver. A player they trust to make a big play when they need it the most. It may be early, but Doubs is already looking like that receiver for Love.

Love and Doubs have been connecting throughout the offseason program, and that continued against All-Pro cornerback Jaire Alexander at minicamp.

Beating Alexander is one way to earn the trust of your quarterback and coaching staff.

"We see it on a daily basis. I think that Rome has done a nice job of really making that next step," head coach Matt LaFleur said. "He's doing a great job of really getting his feet in the ground, running violent routes, violent cuts, being aggressive with his hands."

Christian Watson has a huge role to play this season. His ability to stress defenses with his speed deep downfield will lead to some massive plays. But it will also create opportunities underneath for the other pass-catchers.

Doubs has shown breakout potential and is poised to make a second-year jump. Love keeps throwing him the ball, and it won't be surprising if he is the Packers' leading receiver this season.
