While it is quite obvious that second-year wideouts Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs will garner most of the attention in the passing game, that leaves an opportunity for another receiver to take advantage. Who is that receiver? Jayden Reed.

Reed comes to the Packers as one of two second-round draft picks in 2023 and is slated to take over as Green Bay's third receiver. The former Michigan State Spartan will have plenty of chances to make an impact in the Packers' passing attack as Jordan Love looks to settle in and build chemistry with his targets in the passing game.

Reed has received plenty of praise early on in training camp which should bode well for the future of the offense in Green Bay.

Even though Reed is not the biggest receiver, standing 5-11 and weighing 187 pounds at the scouting combine, he was still able to be a big contributor for a Spartans offense that did have its fair share of struggles.

Reed finished his time at Michigan State with 147 receptions for 2,069 yards and 18 touchdowns.

It was the 2021 season that saw him receive plenty of praise, hauling in 59 passes for 1,026 yards and 10 touchdowns. Green Bay is hoping they can channel what worked in his most productive college season into becoming an impactful target for Love.
