Finding underrated wide receiver prospects with RAS and WROPS

Finding underrated wide receiver prospects with RAS and WROPS

Photo by Conor Kvatek/Collegiate Images/ Now featuring their Frankenstein’s Monster offspring, WRAPS! The Green Bay Packers, have no receivers under contract after this upcoming season. Yes, they will almost certainly extend Davante Adams, and yes, Allen Lazard will be an RFA, but they really do need to address the position. Everyone knows the big prospects in Ja’Marr Chase, Devonta Smith, and Jaylen Waddle, but even if the Packers were to somehow land any of these guys or potential slot star Kadarius Toney, they will still need to acquire depth in the later stages...

Which WRs in the 2021 NFL Draft meet the Packers’ testing benchmarks?

Packers: Greg Newsome II is worth trading up for in draft

Greg Newsome II is one of the best cornerbacks in the 2021 NFL Draft. He’d be a great addition to the Green Bay Packers‘ secondary but might not be available when they are set to hit the clock at No. 29 overall. Should the Packers consider trading up for Newsome? You bet. In an interview […] Packers: Greg Newsome II is worth trading up for in draft - Lombardi Ave - Lombardi Ave - Green Bay Packers News and Fan Community

NFC North Rundown: Upgrading at QB is a popular topic across the division

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Justin Fields is one player who could intrigue Detroit, specifically, if the Ohio State product fell into its lap. There is one undisputed notion when it comes to predicting the Green Bay Packers’ first-round draft pick: it will not be a quarterback. After picking Jordan Love last year, the Packers will not be selecting a signal caller early in the draft at the end of this month. But the position is in demand just about everywhere else in the NFC North as each of the other three teams looks to plan for the future while welcoming immediate help....

Tuesday Cheese Curds: Who might Packers target in a first-round Draft trade?

Monday Cheese Curds: Brainstorming Packers’ possible paths through the NFL Draft

There are numerous pathways to filling critical needs when looking at the Packers’ roster. As always, it all depends on the board when they make their first pick. Cornerback? Offensive tackle?
