Jordan Love and the Green Bay Packers set the standard on Thanksgiving Day. That's the upside for this young team.

Road games on short weeks aren't easy to win, especially against teams as talented as the Detroit Lions, but the Packers dominated on both sides of the ball. Importantly for the Packers, Love played the best game of his career and proved on a national stage that he can be the guy in Green Bay.

The Packers are still in the mix for a playoff berth, but they are a way off contending for a Super Bowl. Patience is required.

Love took a step toward a new contract with his masterclass in Detroit. Once the offseason arrives, it's over to general manager Brian Gutekunst and his staff to help take Love's supporting cast to the next level. Let's get into it.

Round 1 (13): Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

The Packers' young receivers are stepping up. Jayden Reed is a rising star. Dontayvion Wicks looks like a fifth-round steal. Romeo Doubs is as reliable as expected, while Christian Watson put in his best performance of the year against the Lions. Even undrafted rookie Malik Heath made an impact.

Green Bay has a lot of potential at wide receiver. LSU's Malik Nabers can take the offense to another stratosphere. Nabers has superstar potential, just like many other former LSU receivers, including Ja'Marr Chase, Justin Jefferson, and Odell Beckham.

Trevor Sikkema of Pro Football Focus believes Nabers is a "future focal point of an NFL passing attack." That's exactly what the Packers need.

Nabers has put together consecutive 1,000-yard seasons at LSU. This year, he has caught 80 passes for 1,424 yards and 10 touchdowns. He is a smooth route-runner and has the speed to stretch defenses vertically. Nabers has all the tools to become an outstanding WR1 in the Packers' offense.

Alongside Reed, Watson, Wicks, Doubs, and Luke Musgrave, Love will have all the pass-catchers he needs.
