1. Romeo Doubs finishes training camp as Packers WR1

Christian Watson understandably grabbed the headlines in the second half of last season. As Romeo Doubs struggled for consistency, Watson became a touchdown-scoring machine, and there was nothing defenders could do to stop him.

Big things are expected from Watson in year two, and for good reason. But Romeo Doubs made it clear he won't be the forgotten man during the offseason program. Prior to getting hurt in midseason, Doubs had been the Packers' pacesetter among the rookie receivers.

Crucially, Doubs has earned Jordan Love's trust. The two connected regularly throughout the offseason. A previous Packers No. 87 had pretty good chemistry with his quarterback, and Doubs has made an impressive start to the summer.

"Love completed seven passes during the two-minute drive, and four of them (for 45 yards) went to Doubs," wrote ESPN's Rob Demovsky during the offseason workout program.

Updates like that became a pattern throughout OTAs and minicamp. Blink, and you might miss another completion from Love to Doubs.

Watson's big plays make him arguably the Packers' most dangerous receiving weapon, but Doubs can be the glue in Matt LaFleur's offense. The receiver Love throws to time and time again, knowing he can provide the consistency this young offense desperately needs.
