The Green Bay Packers have an exciting new-look wide receiver corps, but there are big questions entering the 2023 season.

Few positions have seen as much turnover over the past two years as wide receiver. The Green Bay Packers' top four receivers from the 2021 season are all gone.

Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, and Randall Cobb played significant roles for the Packers on offense. Jordan Love has a completely new-look receiving corps to throw to in his first season as a starter.

None of the Packers' current receivers were on the roster in 2021.

It's an exciting change -- Green Bay has added a lot of talent -- but there are a few significant questions to be asked ahead of the 2023 season.

3. Will lack of experience hurt Packers at wide receiver?

The Packers invested heavily at wide receiver through the draft over the past two years, selecting three last offseason and three more this past April.

While this gives Green Bay's receiving corps huge upside over the next few seasons, they also have one of the least experienced pass-catching groups in the league. Inevitably, this will lead to mistakes.

Will the Packers regret not keeping one of their veterans like Allen Lazard or Randall Cobb? A player to help guide the young receivers and show them what it means to be a pro. Marvin Jones signed an affordable deal with the Detroit Lions. He would've been a smart signing by the Packers.

Green Bay has put faith in its young receivers. The hope is they grow alongside new starting quarterback Jordan Love, leading to a dominant offense in the coming seasons.

It could work beautifully for Matt LaFleur's team, but the lack of experience could hurt them this season.
