Packers should break precedent at wide receiver in 2022 NFL Draft

I don’t know if you heard, but the Packers need some help at wide receiver.

The cupboard is not completely bare, Green Bay still has steady options in Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb, and a former third-round pick in Amari Rodgers whom they will still have high hopes for.

But there is no doubt a whole lot of dynamic playmaking ability walked out the door this offseason with the departures of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

The Packers have been hesitant to draft wide receivers with premium picks in the past, a record which extends beyond Brian Gutekunst’s tenure as General Manager.

Gutekunst hasn’t selected a wide receiver in the first two rounds during his four drafts so far. The last time Green Bay did take a receiver early, it was Adams in the second round back in 2014.

With four picks in the first two rounds this year, that precedent will almost certainly change.

It is no sure thing the Packers will grab a receiver on the first night of the draft, it would not be a surprise to see them exit round one with an edge rusher and a safety.

However, it would be a true shock if Gutekunst doesn’t pick up a wide receiver in the first two rounds.

Had the 2020 draft fallen a different way, the Packers may well have drafted a receiver in the first round instead of Jordan Love.

A run at the position before Green Bay traded up for Love, with CeeDee Lamb, Jalen Reagor, Justin Jefferson and Brandon Aiyuk all going within nine picks threw a spanner in the works.

Fortunately for the Packers, this is a good year to need a wide receiver.

This draft is stacked with talented options, and it is also more balanced than top heavy. There are a bevy of prospects who could be available in the first two rounds and are capable of being impact players in the NFL.

Treylon Burks, Jahan Dotson, Drake London, John Metchie, Skyy Moore, Chris Olave, George Pickens, Alec Pierce, Christian Watson, Jameson Williams, Garrett Wilson. Take your pick.

Green Bay has the ammunition to go get ‘their guy’ if there is someone they have graded well above the rest, but they could equally let the board come to them and still feel good about their chances of finding a quality receiver.

The game is changing somewhat, in that colleges are now churning out receivers who are more ready for the NFL. The likes of Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson have shown the impact a rookie receiver can have in recent years.

With the Packers all in on winning a Super Bowl in the next two to three years, expect them to break tendency and turn to the first and second round of this month’s draft in an effort to find a playmaker at wide receiver.

I would expect the Packers to select 2 WR's in the first two rounds, possibly three rounds and a 3rd in either rounds 4,5 or 7. They need to select three WR's.

The early timing of the selection will be determined by how the board is running.

You and I are the the EXACT same page HawkPacker. Hell, if Olave and Burks were both there at 22 and 28, I'd select em both. I'm sick and tired of the one man show at WR and would LOVE to see a little more of 2011 on this team with SEVERAL options at the position.

Keyshawn just said minutes ago the Chiefs were going to take and unheard of player R1 or maybe around R4 as Tyreke Hill’s replacement.

Key went to USC. He knows.

22 WR Velus Jones
28 WR Skyy Moore
53 WR Alec Pierce
59 LB Troy Andersen
93 S Kerby Joseph
132 EDGE Sam Williams
140 DT Matthew Butler
171 OT Obinna Eze
228 OT Dare Rosenthal
249 EDGE Michael Clemons
258 WR Deven Thompkins

While I agree with others that it doesn’t have to be WRs exclusively R1, or at all, the group above would certainly be instant offense, with very solid D additions, and depth added everywhere except TE. There are a plethora of options for GB.

22 DT Devonte Wyatt
28 S Lewis Cine
53 WR Alec Pierce
59 EDGE Cam Thomas
93 LB Channing Tindall
132 WR Jalen Tolbert
140 WR David Bell
171 TE/H Chig Okwonko
228 RB Rachaad White
249 OT Kellen Diesch
258 WR Deven Thornton

I’m confident the Packers are going to be fine no matter how they roll this… I’m removing the “AR trust,” factor because it’s STUPID. Any one of these options would likely make the Packers a better football team.

22 LB Devin Lloyd
28 DT Devonte Wyatt
53 EDGE Cam Thomas
59 WR Velus Jones
93 EDGE Sam Williams
132 WR Alec Pierce
140 RB Rachaad White
171 OT Jean DeLance
228 OT/OG/C Cade Mays
249 OT Dare Rosenthal
258 WR/KR Deven Thompkins

BTW Nick, I have zero problems if the Packers do decide Olave & Burks are their R1 picks…

22 WR Chris Olave
28 WR Treylon Burks
53 TE Jelani Woods
59 EDGE Sam Williams
93 CB Zyon McCollum*
132 S Kerby Joesph
140 WR Velus Jones
171 OT Kellen Diesch
228 OT Nick Zakelj
249 WR Deven Thompkins
258 DE Zach Vanvalkenburg

None of these done on a simulator. Just straight best guesses.

Throwing 1st round picks at a position just because its a need doesnt guarantee anything. The player has to fit the value of the pick and I dont see any receivers in this draft that deserve to be first rounders except maybe Garrett Wilson but even he isnt a cant miss prospect. Just draft the best players and if receiver is at the top of the board for one of those premium picks then draft him. But they absolutely cannot pass on better players just to fill a need. Thats how you make your opponents better without really improving your own team. Thats how bad teams stay bad.

I agree 100 percent RTS. I do not feel the same love for these top of the draft receivers that others do. IF Wyatt or Penning are available at 22, I'm in.

I will say that Dotson has really grown on me. He creates space, has great hands, runs fantastic routes and appears to have some twitch.

He looks like a receiver you can move round like DA. His versatility is impressive . Plus he has special teams experience.

His skill set and size remind me of Antonio Brown. The only concern I can see from his combine was his 3 cone, but the tape doesn't suggest this is a big issue.

I understand what you're saying MPF. I just wasn't that impressed when I watched his tape. I could easily be wrong and Gutey loves him. We all have our opinions on these guys. Some of us will be wrong and some will be right.

PFN has Jahan Dotson rated at 42, so if he makes it to 53, he might be good value. We'll have to see who else is still on the board and what Gutey thinks. Personally, I would rather draft Watson at 28 than Dotson at 53, but that's just me.

Can't wait to find out though.

Bird, with all the crazy money being thrown at receivers in free agency, I suspect that there will be at least 6 taken in the first round. Dotson is polished, Watson (who I would love to have) is a project. Give me Dotson and Pierce, they are Pro ready WR's IMHO.

FYI, PFN has Wyatt rated at 36, so I take their rankings with a grain of salt.

I don't know there is going to be a WR worthy of a 1st round pick when the Packers are on the board. Of course, it always comes down to how the draft falls. Year after year WR's are over hyped! Rounds two thru four will have excellent WR's available, but not nearly as likely to have high quality DL, Edge, and OT's sitting there.

We can all agree or disagree but I trust Gutey's board. I have a vision of how I'd like to see the draft go, but the Pack should walk away with A LOT of quality players as long as those draft selections are not traded away. I'm pumped for the draft!

Bell is far more advanced than Rodgers was coming out of college. Rodgers was mostly a slot guy in college whereas Bell was almost always out wide. He's the most advanced receiver in this class and by a wide margain too. The only thing keeping him from being a surefire first round pick is his lack of top end speed. But if you look at what he does really well (Gets seperation early with technique, beats press coverage with ease, YAC monster, catches everything thrown his way), he's the best chance in the draft for finding a guy 12 would trust throwing to. And he will likely be a 2nd round pick which frees up the Packers 1st round picks for other important positions.

I like Bell a lot. 6-1 212. High volume WR 92 rec for over 1200 yds, 6 TDs and 69c%. Great YAC too. He’s a very safe, sure, polished WR who faced top competition in getting those numbers.

Bell is not the fastest guy, but he’s experienced, with the resume to prove it. He’s TOUGH.

His metrics have dinged him because some can’t grasp playing speed with gear is different than underwear speed on a track. His average draft position has hung steadily for months at 138… just fyi. R4 steal.

Here’s one of my best, not caring what others might say…

London might put up a decent 40 time (if hes even healthy enough to run it before the draft) but 40 times mean nothing. NFL receivers almost never run 40 yards in a straight line unabated. The ability to separate is the most important trait a receiver can have and it rarely comes down to straight line speed. After watching London's film, I see a guy who seriously struggles to gain separation. He could run a 4.4 and i still wouldnt draft him. Reminds me of JJ Arcega Whiteside. Has all the measurables you could want with solid production too but has been a complete bust cuz he cant get open.

Well before the combine he was being talked about as a late 1st rounder so being a 2nd round pick is technically falling down the board. But with that being said, the guy is just too good of a football player to fall too far. Scouts gotta be in love with this guy. Theres no offense where a role cant be found for him.

RTS,
Runs a 4.65 in 40 yard and only 6'2"

See him rated around #65 on some of the boards. Have a hard time seeing a WR that slow drafted before round 4 or 5. That speed is TE speed for guys 6'6" and 260 lbs.

I know speed isn't always everything but certainly prefer a sub 4.5 in the 40. Adam's was 4.56 and adequate because of perfecting getting off the line, and his separation ability, but 4.65 for a WR is slooooooow! I may be wrong but I struggle mightily seeing him become a top WR in the NFL with that speed.

This is why the NFL draft is so popular. Everyone likes a different flavor and only time will tell who becomes a productive player or not!

Well-spoken RTS. Five WR's may be picked before pick 22. If Burks or Watson are there pick one. I do not want Olave, Dotson, or Williams at pick 22. I DO NOT want to trade up before pick 22. None of the top 7 WRs warrant a trade up IMO. If a run occurs with 5-6 WR taken, fine that means quality prospects at other positions are made available. The WR position in this year's draft is very deep. Gute will find WR players he likes later. We are cap strapped next year too. We need to fill the roster with cheaper players through the draft. With 7 picks in the top 140 Gute should supply the team for four years with quality. Gute can tinker with trades later in the draft when it is much less costly to move around for a player of need or pick up more picks if Gute's draft board shows he can trade back. I am surprised at the interest in the QB position this year. This crop of QB's is not good. 2-3 QB's may be taken before pick 22 (Car, Atl, Hou, & Pit) ! I like our odds of getting a quality player at 22 without moving up. Hold your water Gute.

Are you serious? Take the best player available, like what they did by drafting Jordan Love. What a joke. We have a glaring need at WR that has to be addressed by drafting 3 at this position in the first four rounds. Getting the first one as early as possible. I hate to break it to you but there is no guarantee for any player drafted no matter what the position. Does Tony Mandarich bring back a great draft memory? As the NFL has developed into a passing league it definitely puts more WRs as first round picks than it has in the past. The Packers have wasted the career of one of the best QBs to play the game by not giving him the weapons to win SBs. Think of the WR they could have had with that J Love pick. We wouldn’t be in the mess we are in now if they had maybe drafted Higgins, Claypool, Pittman etc….. when there is a glaring positional need it is imperative to address that need. Yes we have other positions of need but none as big as the WR position. We are not going to win many games with Lazard as our #1 receiver.

Brob, I understand the frustration and your points are well described. I agree there are no guarantees. Players get injured, do not fit the system they are in, or even get run over by a dump truck (sad). My point I was trying to make is that the Pack hopefully will not trade up to get a WR when there are many to choose from this year. I do hope we find quality over quantity at the WR position this year. I also do not want to pass-up great opportunities at other positions of need. Hindsight is always 20-20, but the Pack MUST have foresight to remain at the top of our division.

If Gute's board has a top WR and he is there at #22 take him otherwise take a DL or Edge. Trade down from #28 and get a second and 3rd rounder.
Then go WR heavy in rounds 2 and 3. At least 2 WRs, maybe 3. Any other picks in rounds 2 and 3 should be used to bolster the defense and or the OL.

I dont think TE is as big of a need as is being advertised. They already have 3 under contract who serve different roles which means there will be little reps for a rookie to develop enough to actually make a difference. Not to mention, Rodgers doesnt throw over the middle nearly as much as he used to. I wouldnt mind using a late pick on one, but they have much bigger holes to address. Remember, Packers won a super bowl with Andrew Quarless at tight end.

Sanity, the most likely Lewis will retire after this season. As we can see from the past, TE is maybe the most demanding position to develop and there is very small chances that you'll get TE who will be starter from the 1st moments. Tonyan is questionable because of the injury, He might be ready to go from the week 1, but there is always possibility that he will have some complications as David Bakhtiari suffered. Even David is not certain that he will be at the same level as in the past.

That is the reason to have developmental project on the board and if he can help in year one - excellent, but you have to look at the future, when drafting, too.

The object was to change the offense for years to come.1. Quote." We need WRs to take the top off a defense!" Next up Watson is going to KC according to McShay. That makes him 1st rd. The top 5 will go before 20. Pickens has been interviewed and brought in. He's in the top 35 now. McBride; solves 10 mil. to Tonyan next year. He catches the ball. (Something De Guara can't do when it's above his head. ) Alex Pierce is on Walters top 30.(CAmpBell) And is on his Hot list. All 3 picks are 6'3" and can play outside. All had high," jumping marks". The 2 running backs, are higher thean Rated. The last 2 Wrs are Hoter than Hell. Both can be a excellent choice for the return game. Which Gutey continues to ignore. No defense was selected early. So Gutey can spend money on it. Keep in mind Gutey has drafted WRs; that have had trouble catching, and are slow, or fumble. ( But I'll let him draft two OL. ) Get the praise he needs, and puts Rodgers in hell again.

PFN Mockery: Simulator has Bengals move up to secure a Lineman. #22 and 2023 5th to Cats for the #31, 63, 136 and I wanted the #226 included.

#28 Burks WR
#31 Pierce WR
#53 Wyatt DT (unlikely, their simulator is way off).
#59 Lucas OT
#63 Skyy Moore WR/KR/PR
#92 Nick Cross S
#132 Alex Wright DE/five tech
#136 Alonte Taylor CB
#140 Krull TE
#171 McFadden LB
#226 Bellinger TE
#228 Horvath FB/RB
#249 Nelson S
#258 Moon LB

Goal is to bag three WRs ,two TEs two LB s two DL or two OT. Dead weight has to be moved along down the road. I have a hard time seeing where Lewis fits as a TE. Nelson pick could be for a guard. He has concussion issues, but knows the Game.

I expect Gute to trade for a WR using a third round pick. Then trade down a first round pick to get a second and third round picks. With those five picks get a WR, IDL, EDGE, ILb and a TE.

Personally I see two problems with this outlook and the great thing about this country is we all can have a differing view.

1. the wide receiver market is blown way out of proportion as we have seen in the last few months , and I definitely think this trend will continue during the draft i.e. a guy like Christian Watson who has great physical tools, but was considered no higher than a early 3rd round prospect at best being selected 22-32 which is terrible value for a boom or bust guy. Think mvs who was a 5th round pick .
Personally if your looking for the complete package inside outside route runner speed polished Jah0n Dotson is a great value in the first . Just because he is 5'11 195 pounds he isn't getting the same hype which is a joke he was never hurt .

2. When you have one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the league 4xmvp he should be able to make chicken salad out of chicken crap excuse my language Why pay the man this kind of money when you know sacrifices like wr will be made if he can't do this ?

3. This defense is one more DL man and another two down linebacker next to Campbell from being elite . I would much rather see them trade up for a Jordan Davis , Devin Lloyd and round out the defense, The 50 million dollar man needs to do his part . yes we need WR but to panic is not good

jhtobias. Dotson is the kind of receiver AR will love. He will find the open space and be where he is supposed to be. He has shown struggles in press coverage from physical corners at the college level, so I think MLF would have to scheme him open at times until he develops a consistent release package.

Never ask a fan who to draft. A fan will only look at the current roster and fill what they believe are the empty spots. A fan has no plan for the future and looks no further than the current season, and would surely squander reality for any player with the most written accolades. That is especially true of #Packers fans.

Personally, I am just going to sit back and watch the draft, and see how the picks fall. The #Packers put their trust into Brian Gutekunst, why should I not also do the same. Brain is actually PAID by the team to make these decisions, I am not. They call it a "brain trust" for a reason. I will call it a Brian Trust, and leave it at that.

Agreed. I love looking at all the draft prospects and seeing which ones I think are "Packers" and then trying to guess Gutey's strategy. Over the years, some of the Packers picks made me want to puke at the time. Some were busts and some were not. Some were awesome and some were FHOF'ers.

Will be fun to see how right or wrong I am. I think we all know our needs and tendencies, but it will be fun seeing who is available and who Gutey chooses.

I would love to sit in on the discussions when they are setting their board. That would be very interesting and probably eye-opening.

I look to see the Pack adding two, maybe three WRs in the draft, one in the first two rounds. Two more later on. As for getting one in the first and how the packers havent added one there in recent years Jordy nelson was a one that we got in a trade down at the beginning of the second, plus got another pick. Nelson should have gone in the first. I also expect the packers to grab an edge rusher and if he falls to them, a guy who may in time replace David Baktiari. A veteran receiver will be invited to camp as well. Bottom line is you still grab the best guy available. with your picks. GOPACKGO!

Reading comments here at CHTV, I'm wondering if the talent pool at wide receiver is overrated -- perhaps more quantity than quality -- especially if looking for a guy who can make a big impact right away like Justin Jefferson and Ja'Marr Chase.
If such an immediate star is in this draft, then perhaps the Packers make a big move to trade up -- using one of their four picks in the top 60 as part of the deal. By the way, who would that be?
***
On the other hand, it seems as though there are a lot of question marks regarding the wide receivers that would be available to the Packers at #22 and #28 of the first round.
At least two guys are coming off major injuries: Williams from Alabama and Pickens from Georgia.
Watson from North Dakota State is a potential superstar but undeveloped.
Olave from Ohio State and Dotson from Penn State may not be strong enough to handle the pounding of being a high-volume pass catcher.
***
The impression I get is that the questions go on and on and on for potential draft picks at wide receiver -- again, especially if it's a matter of getting a guy who is ready to excel as a rookie in the NFL.
Perhaps, then, it's best that the Packers pick only one wide receiver with their first four picks between 22-59 overall, then wait until at least the fourth round to pick a couple more at that position.
Perhaps, rather than going crazy at wide receiver, the Packers also focus on defensive tackle, offensive tackle, tight end, outside linebacker, inside linebacker, and safety at the top of the draft.
Perhaps the dazzling array of wide receivers coming out of college for this draft, upon closer inspection, is more or less an illusion when it comes to a quick fix.
***
Perhaps MVS was a bargain at $10 million, a better risk than anyone in the draft to break out this upcoming season.
Perhaps, along with Lazard, there's another receiver or two already on the roster for the Packers who will be better right away than any of the rookies.
Perhaps we can still find a trade on draft day -- effective June 1 -- for Aaron Rodgers that would bring a star wide receiver or tight end for Jordan Love to grow with.
Perhaps, in general, we should make an adjustment to the discussion about the wide receiver position for the Packers in 2022 before we regret our selections of April 28-30.

It may be like a supposed expert from a major financial firm telling you what stocks to buy.
Okay, so maybe you give a good listen; but before investing your hard-earned money, you pause to consider some of the realities of human nature:
How much are the experts relying on their own research, and how much on what others are saying?
How much are the experts in disagreement with other experts?
How much are even the best experts at times faulty in their judgements?
How much are the worst experts prone to the corruption of saying what they know isn't true, out of fear of losing something or out of greed for getting something?
***
We humans are frail -- yet we don't always understand our limitations, or won't admit to them.
I'm not against experts, although it's often difficult to discern which of the experts to trust? It's a great blessing to find an expert of intelligence and integrity.
It seems wise to also talk with sensible persons who are not experts -- to get a different perspective from outside of those on the inside.

Great route runner? Thats not what i see. The film shows a guy who does most of his damage on drag routes and deep over routes against soft coverage. Limited route tree and limited release package. A raw player coming from an option style offense that utilizes its receivers in very simplistic ways. not to mention, he doesnt even look as fast as his 40 time implies. Could he become a great player? Sure. But hes nowhere close to being a major contributor. Not sure why this guy is getting so much love here. I really dont see it.

There is no generational talent at WR in this draft but the depth of talent is there. So Gute needs to take full advantage of that. Safety, DL, & Edge would make a bigger impact in the 1st round for this team and with the possible exception of DL, Safety & Edge should be there especially if more QB's than expected go before us. It may very well be that the value for any of our needs won't be there at #28 and we trade down to build valuable depth in a deep draft, I do expect at #22 we'll get an immediate contributor as a rookie, but don't expect a 1st round WR or any round WR in this draft to be a game changer as a rookie. None of these guys are close to being the talents that Chase and Jefferson are. The biggest impact we're going to get from any rookie this year won't be a WR or TE. It'll be OL, Edge, DL, or Safety. But we do have AR for 2 years and that 2nd year is when you hope for a big jump from your 1st or 2nd rnd. WR, though 3 years is the norm.

It appears Gute & company does not believe WR is a blue chip position. It's hard to argue against. Evidence shows CB, Pass Rusher, QB, Safety are there blue chip positions.

However, GB stopped looking for WR's starting back in 2016....,

While comments are interesting, the 4 receivers mentioned in connection with the Love pick have been a mixed bag. Jefferson is a stud, Lamb is inconsistent, Aiyuk was connected with the “B” word was considered a player to be traded and Reagor has been largely a disappointing pick. WR s will be picked but it’s time to get off the Love rag bag….

The WR s missed were Tee Higggins, Claypool, Pittman and Shenault with a move down to the second. He was focused on Aiyuk , but Lynch poached him. Jonathon Taylor, now that is another story. The true whiff. Total miscalculation and then they paid out top cash to Jones. They went value with Love, knowing they could ride Adams, Lazard and MVS through the Division scrum.

Packers need a WR that is intelligent to exploit the zones and do crossing routes in the middle of the field like Lazard at times and has the hands of Adams. It would be a wasted first round pick if the Packers drafted just a straightline WR.

First off, Dotson is completely overrated. Look at his RAS, WROPS and WRAPS numbers. He shouldn’t be drafted before the 3rd round and maybe even the 4th. He struggles with press coverage (that’s not a good thing). He fits best at the slot position which has Cobb and Rodgers. Also our other scrub receivers play the slot. We don’t need to draft another slot receiver. I think the best idea I heard is to trade #28 for another teams 2nd and 3rd round picks. Then I would draft like this.
#22 best Edge
early 2nd rnd from trading back take best WR
#53 best DL
#59 best WR
early 3rd rnd from trading back take best Safety
#93 best IOL
#132 best WR
#140 best ILB
#171 best CB
#228 CB
#249 S from U of Wisconsin
#258 K or P to replace Crosby
The only other thing I might consider is drafting the TE Woods somewhere in the 3rd round if he is there. Not sure if he lives up to the hype.

I like it Brob. I very much like your drafting ladders with the possible 28 pick trade. I am an avid Penn State football fan. I think Dotson is over-rated too. I think he was an outstanding college WR with a QB that was not an accurate passer. Personally, Dotson is top notch. He is not the biggest or fastest WR, but worth it for the Pack not at 22, 2nd round yes.

Appreciate that insider info, blondy! Was thinking same. Jahan Dotson could even last into R3, which I think would be a steal for a good high- volume WR. Lots of other really great WRs not getting their props due to circumstances out of their control. Needing strength/weight/development, like virtually ANY rookie. Poor QB play in their college careers… etc.

We’re just under some insane gun again to deliver the extraordinary. This time? Starters at WR as rookies.

The more time I keep spending on potential draft choices leading up to the draft for the GBP's I have come up with the following conclusions even though I support whatever Gutey decides to do. The following is without question what I would do if I was the GM.

1. I would not draft a WR in round 1 with the exception should Jameson Williams fall to them (I have changed my mind from previous and would not trade up for him). Way too many promising WR's available in rounds 2 thru 4. The Packers have bigger needs for quality big bodies that will not be available after round 1. My sincere hope is Gutey drafts talented big men in round 1 with both selections and possibly even with the #53 pick.
2. In my mind the biggest priority in rounds 1 based on what players will be there is for the Packers to draft are dominating day 1 starting OT, Edge, or DL (not as big a priority but I'd love top talent next to Clark). I consistently see the following guys available in all my mock draft simulators (as I now use like 4 draft simulators) and I always take these players. OT it is either Trevor Penning, or Barnhard Raimann. At Edge rusher it is David Ojabo, and at DL it usually is Devontae Wyatt, but occasionally Jordan Davis. If any of these guys were available I'd snap up two of them in round 1 without hesitation. I probably would not draft a WR in round 1.
3. In round 2 (I know there is a good chance of a trade here) I would focus on picking up the top rated player that was not drafted at one of the three aforementioned positions in round 1 with the 53 pick. As an example, I love Nik Bonito as an Edge rusher and would seriously consider him with the #53 pick even if I had selected Ojabo with the #28. I would also somewhere in round 2 draft my first WR with one of the two selections.

Edge Position:
Two players that are really jumping off the TV screen for me are David Ojabo at Edge, and Nik Bonito at Edge. Holy cow these guys are studs. Not impressed with George Karlaftis as he seems stiff and unable to bend well. Also, he lacks speed! Completely reminds me of the disappointing Nick Perry first round pick of the Packers in 2012. For any of you who remember Perry, Karlaftis is the 2nd coming talent wise. Mainly power and that is not going to give you consistent wins in the NFL. Jermaine Johnson is okay at Edge but lacks bulk and power and liability in setting the edge against the run. I see him as maybe a 59th selection type. I would definitely draft the injured Ojabo as this guy is truly amazing and his potential is off the charts. I recognize there is somewhat a risk but would not hesitate drafting this guy in round 1 at #28 and then turning right around and drafting Nik Bonito in round 2 as Ojabo is not going to play in 2022.

Offensive Tackle:
I really would like to see two OT's taken in the draft. Trevor Penning is my guy but Bernard Raimann, Max Mitchell, or Zach Tom are high on my lists. Check out Max Mitchell or Zach Tom and their talent if unfamiliar. These guys will be there in round 2 and possibly rounds 3 & 4.

Defensive Line:
I consistently end up drafting Devontae Wyatt with the 22 selection. Guy is a stud! Cannot even imagine if the Packers drafted him and lining him up alongside Clark. My head would explode! Then with the 28 if Ojabo was available I'd immediately draft him. I keep thinking of how dominant the Packers defense would be. If Jordan Davis (interchangeable with Wyatt) was there in round 1, or a Nik Bonito in round 2 I'd also take these guys if Wyatt and Ojabo were not available.

WR's:
I've watched the top WR's in this draft (the top 15-20 WR's) and now going back watching their video's a second time. A guy who I don't believe anyone at CCTV has really talked much about that is rapidly climbing my board is Josh Johnson. This guy seems to be pushed back to 3rd round, or possibly even the 4th round on the simulators but this guy looks to me the 2nd coming of Adam's (at least in potential). He is 6'2" running sub 4.5 and shiftier than heck. Don't sleep on Josh, Pickens, or Khalil!

The top WR's I like that are say 6'2" and above are the following:
-I really like George Pickens who is 6'3" and a sub 4.5. Guy has the speed, length, and natural hip turning ability. Reminds me somewhat of Jameson Williams. While I do not have a favorite WR other than Jameson (who isn't likely to be available) I think George is possibly my favorite and I would likely make him the first WR drafted. If Gutey drafted him with the #28 I would not be upset.
-There are a whole bunch of WR's that I bunch in that 6'2" to 6'5" height with sub 4.5 speed (Burks is a little slower) that any one of them I would be very happy with depending where they were drafted that include the following:
George Pickens with 4.47 speed
Jameson Williams with 4.39 speed
Jalen Tolbert with 4.49 speed
Alec Pierce with 4.33 speed
Treylon Burks with 4.55 speed
Josh Johnson who is the shortest at 6'2" with 4.44 speed (super like this guy and would enjoy him and Pickens together)
Christian Watson at 6'5" with 4.36 speed (why would anyone want Drake London when Watson is faster, shiftier, and more explosive and can be had further back in the draft)?
Danny Gray who like Johnson is 6'2" but faster with 4.33 speed

WR's 6'1" or under:
Garrett Wilson with 4.38 speed (love this guy but he won't be available)
Chris Olave with 4.39 speed
Khalil Shakir with 4.43 speed
Skyy Moore with 4.41 speed
Jahan Dotson with 4.41 speed
Calvin Austin (great gadget player who I'd take him in rounds 3 or 4) with 4.32 speed
John Metchie with 4.5 speed
Velus Jones with 4.31 speed and great kick returner

My favorite draft selections in rounds 1 thru 3 would be:
22. Devonte Wyatt, Jordan Davis at DL, Jameson Williams at WR, or Trevor Penning at OT

SUPER, RIGHT ON! This is a very well thought out piece, backed with time taken accurate information. I think you should give Gute a call!

SH,
Respectfully 1,000% disagree with you...though not sure what your definition of speed. When looking at Adam's speed and hands I think his speed is a good starting point. I believe he was 4.56, James Jones 4.59, and Greg Jennings about 4.48. All the WR's I mentioned were under 4.5 with exception of Burks at 4.55.

He has No choice, but to go edge. He won't draft Inside LBs = early. That leaves a Ot to finally replace Bulaga.
( And Hope to hell he isn't Spriggs.) HE CAN'T GO DL AFTER the 1st rd. Unless Leal comes into play. So that leaves Mofe to replace Z Smith. @28 - Not to mention M. Whitney. Then when pick #53 comes. He will end up with slow for the outside. Because a "Adams type" won't be there. He's already in Love with Clemson WRs. And Shakir will be the only guy left. -( To replace MVS. - Hopefully?) The Bears couldn't win with just defense. And the packers won't either. If Gute wants Rodgers to ask for a trade again. This draft would do it.
