For the first time in years, it won't be a problem if the Packers don't draft a wide receiver. However, that doesn't mean they shouldn't if the right opportunity arises.

If Green Bay does add a receiver, it should happen early. Christian Watson, Jayden Reed, Romeo Doubs, and Dontayvion Wicks are roster locks. Bo Melton and Malik Heath played well this season. Would a mid-to-late-round prospect win a spot on the 53-man roster ahead of those six receivers?

But if an opportunity comes up to add a difference-maker, the Packers should take it. They have five top-100 picks, which could put them in perfect position to land Western Kentucky's Malachi Corley.

Otherwise known as "The YAC King," Corley would offer something new to Green Bay's offense. He has drawn comparisons to Deebo Samuel for his size, physicality, and explosiveness. Corley is dominant after the catch—he can run through defenders and has the acceleration to pick up yards quickly.

Get Corley the ball, and he will do the rest. Whether it's in the slot, out of the backfield, on jet sweeps—you name it—Matt LaFleur would find creative ways to get him the football.

And with Christian Watson stretching defenses vertically and clearing space underneath, a combination of Corley and Jayden Reed in the slot would be unfair on opposing defenses.
