3. Tyler Scott, WR, Cincinnati

Cincinnati's Tyler Scott doesn't meet the Packers' size thresholds at wide receiver, but in the middle rounds, they should make an exception. Scott is a difference-maker and one of the most fun receivers to watch in this year's class.

Scott is a great athlete, earning a Relative Athletic Score of 8.6 out of 10. He would add speed to the Packers' offense, and Matt LaFleur could find creative ways to use him. Scott would line up mostly in the slot, although the Packers could use him on jet sweeps.

Get the ball in his hands, and let Scott do the rest. He's excellent after the catch. The Packers did this often with Christian Watson with great success.

"Scott has the makings of an outstanding No. 2 receiver in the NFL where his ability to win at all levels of the field, create after the catch, and impact the spacing of the offense with his vertical ability are major assets for his NFL offense," wrote Joe Marino of The Draft Network.

There's so much to love about Scott's game and his potential in the NFL, so it's difficult to understand why he isn't projected to go higher. He would be a home-run addition for the Packers in the middle rounds.
