1. Jayden Reed showing off his playmaking ability

Jayden Reed can do a bit of everything in Matt LaFleur's offense, and it's quickly becoming clear why the Packers drafted him in the second round.

Reed impressed during Thursday's practice, with Paul Bretl of Packers Wire calling it an "excellent day" for the rookie receiver.

Bretl wrote: "We saw him used on an end-round that he broke for a big gain. Then during a red zone drill, from the slot, he ran an in-breaking route and found a soft spot in the defense. De'Vondre Campbell was the nearest defender. His speed and ability to find openings in the defense is evident."

Reed can make a huge impact in year one. His explosiveness and ability to line up at various spots should earn him a starting role immediately.

The Packers needed a slot receiver, having moved on from Randall Cobb in the offseason. Running back AJ Dillon drew comparisons between Reed and Cobb, which is high praise for the rookie receiver.

Drafting Reed was arguably the most underrated move the Packers made this past offseason. He makes up one of the league's most exciting young receiving trios alongside Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs.

Reed will be an exciting player to watch this season.
