Will we get a piece on Cheesehead TV that lists the high RAS prospects in this draft ?

Given how much Gutekunst likes high RAS guys (they tend to be among the top three teams for drafting high RAS guys) there is a good chance several high RAS guys will be drafted.

Don't need one. Higgins, Reagor, or Jones OT. @30.

I like Reagor, But I'd still take Mimms he's my WR4 in the draft.
Elite speed, leaping ability, and change of direction ability.
And some of the most ridicules catches I've ever seen in college.

I think both these guys will go before 30. And I think Murray/Queen/Cleveland/Aiyuk are 4 guys Gutey would like. The question will be if any of these 4 will be available at 30. Unless Gutey has several other guys he likes just as much as these 4, it would be tough to trade down into R2 if only 1 or 2 (or even 3 or 4) of these 4 guys is available at 30.

Mims, JJ or Aiyuk would suit me fine. Should be able to get a good DT at 62 and a good ILB at 94. I have admit however, I'm intrigued by Jonathan Taylor at 30. But there are good RBs available throughout the draft so maybe that will keep the Pack off of Taylor.

Now, if Pack signs Cooks before draft, we may pass on WR altogether and then we might be looking at RB/OT/ILB/DT. Gutey may not like Cooks because of the price tag and diminutive size.

It would be nice to do a similar podcast with some of the later round WRs with some of your diamonds in the rough picks. I might be in the minority, but I don't think we are drafting a WR in the 1st round and I'm not convinced we will get one in the 2nd round either.

I do think we will go WR early, but here are a few later round receivers to take a look at in rounds 3-4 Tyler Johnson, Van Jefferson and K.J Hamler are the guys to keep a eye on.

In rounds 5-7 James Proche and Quez Watkins are two guys I absolutely love.

I'd love the packers to draft Mims he's been my WR4 for a while now.

Great at making contested catches and simply insane shouldn't be humanly possible sideline grabs.

His only knock is the limited rout tree he ran at Baylor but at the senior bowl he ran a much more complete rout tree and dominated everybody there.

At the combine he showed of great straight line speed (4.38 40 yard dash), change of direction ability (6.66 second 3 cone best of all WR's at the combine),
and great leaping ability 38.5" vert & 131.0" broad.

He also has a 78.5" wingspan.
