The Green Bay Packers have one of the most underrated receiving rooms in the entire NFL. NFL training camp is right around the corner and a lot of NFL teams usually keep six on the 53-man roster when the NFL season rolls around. The Packers receivers, just like any other team will have competition at the position in training camp.
There are only two locks to make the Green Bay Packers roster at the wide receiver position and they are Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs. They are both entering their second season with Green Bay and improved as the season went on. Quarterback Jordan Love is potentially going to have chemistry with Watson heading into this season, and Doubs has the potential to have another solid season.
After those two wide receivers, who will be the other four on the roster?
The projected third wide receiver on the roster is currently rookie wide receiver Jayden Reed from Michigan State. Reed can play in the slot and on the outside. He is one of the rookies to watch for in training camp for.
After those three, it is a major dropoff at the position. As of right now on the depth chart, the next three Packers receivers are second-year player Samori Toure and rookies Dontayvion Wicks from the University of Virginia and Grant DuBose from Charlotte.
Wicks was a fifth-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and was selected 159th overall, while DuBose was selected in the seventh round and was taken 256th overall. Some people feel like Wicks can make noise in training camp and potentially be a draft steal. During his last collegiate season, Wicks caught 90 passes for 1,694 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was one of the better wide receivers in the ACC.
This wide receiver room is a very young room and has a lot of potential to grow. Heath is an undrafted rookie from Ole Miss and Watts is an undrafted rookie from Tulane, looking to make names for themselves in training camp. They are trying to steal roster spots from the top six, but it will be interesting to see what happens.
When training camp is all over, the six wide receivers that will make the Green Bay Packers roster will likely be Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, Dontayvion Wicks, Grant DuBose, and Samori Toure.
