Packers draft proving doubters wrong

The Packers brass was ridiculed for their decision not to draft a weapon for Aaron Rodgers in what was coveted as the “Greatest WR Draft Ever”.

So far, the Packers developing WR talent has matched the production level of the rookies from the “Greatest WR Draft Ever”.

Of the 37 rookie WRs in 2020, only 17th overall pick Ceedee Lamb (165) has more yards that Marquez Valdez-Scantling (160).

Allen Lazard (108) also only trails 15th overall pick Jerry Jeudy (118) and 49th overall pick Chase Claypool (127) in total receiving yards. It is worth mentioning that 84 of Claypool’s 127 yards came on one play, so his gaudy 25 yards/catch will be difficult to maintain.
