The Green Bay Packers added three wide receivers in the 2022 NFL Draft. Christian Watson out of NDSU in the second round, Romeo Doubs out of Nevada in the fourth round, and Samouri Toure out of Nebraska in the seventh round. However Green Bay could still use a veteran number one wide receiver on the roster for week one.
WR Corey Davis
Davis is still only 27 years old and has experience playing in the Matt LaFleur offense (2018 with Titans). The fifth overall pick in the 2017 draft missed eight games to a core muscle injury during a disappointing first year in New York last season. The New York Jets took WR Garrett Wilson 10th overall to pair with WR Elijah Moore. This could leave Corey Davis on the outside looking in. Proposed trade:
- WR Corey Davis
New York Jets receive:
- 2023 fourth round pick
- 2023 compensatory seventh round pick
This may seem low compensation for Corey Davis however two trades this off-season makes me think its realistic. Amari Cooper was traded to the Browns in exchange for their 2022 fifth-round pick and a swapping of 2022 sixth-round picks. DeVante Parker was traded to the Patriots for a 2022 fifth round pick and a 2023 third round pick.
Green Bay could create a similar package for Davis, who’s cap hit is more than manageable for 2022.
