Rookie of the Year: Jayden Reed

Jayden Reed is the newest addition to a long list of Packers wide receivers drafted in the second round, joining the likes of Davante Adams, Christian Watson, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Greg Jennings.

After 10 weeks, the Michigan State product has progressed into a top weapon for Jordan Love.

Among qualified rookie receivers, Reed ranks eighth in yards (417), fifth in yards per reception (14.9), and tied third in touchdowns (four). This is despite being listed third on the Packers receiver depth chart.

Reed has played the 13th-most snaps out of the slot this season (209) and, in doing so, has helped Love post a 118.1 passer rating when targeting Reed, the top mark on the Packers. His 44.9% win rate in man coverage is good for the 21st-best mark in football, and he is literally starting to separate himself.

Reed's 417 receiving yards lead all Packers after 10 weeks, and his role in the offense continues to expand. Reed can make plays over the middle, stretch the field, take a screen pass for a big gain, and is counted on in the red zone. He ranks second on the Packers in red zone targets (10) but has converted the highest percentage of targets into catches (60%).

Reed is likely to see his role continue to expand down the stretch, and he is looking like the next home-run second-round receiver selection for Green Bay.
