The Packers desperately needed to add depth to the wide receiver corps in the 2023 NFL Draft, and it's a job well done. Green Bay selected Michigan State's Jayden Reed in the second round, Virginia's Dontayvion Wicks in the fifth round, and Charlotte's Grant DuBose in the seventh.

What's fascinating is that none of the Packers' receivers under contract were on the team two years ago. It's a completely revamped wide receiver corps.

Green Bay could still add a veteran receiver, but options in free agency are limited. It's entirely possible they move forward with their talented young group.

It's an exciting receiving corps. Christian Watson can be a Pro Bowler. He is a game-changer with his speed, athleticism, and size. Romeo Doubs showed his ability to make 'wow' plays on a regular basis.

The Packers now add Jayden Reed, a home-run hitter in the slot, Dontayvion Wicks, an elite athlete with starting potential, and Grant DuBose, a talented player with good size who the Packers can develop.

Brian Gutekunst did a great job of rebuilding this wide receiver corps through the past two drafts. This is an exciting group.
