Why Packers Did Not Draft Any Wide Receivers
Why the Packers did not draft any wide receivers has been the subject of much speculation over the past few days.
According to Peter King of NBC Sports, the answer is quite simple.
“The Packers had two receivers they were targeting in early and middle part of the second round,” he said.
“They tried to move up with several teams, he said, until the second receiver they preferred got picked, and then they stopped.
“Seven wideouts went in the first 27 picks of the second round; Green Bay, with the 62nd overall pick, took running back A.J. Dillon. Not good.
“As much as the draft pick itself, the price for Love included not addressing that big need at receiver. We’ll see if that comes back to haunt the team this year or next.”
