The Green Bay Packers drafted three receivers in the late rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft. After their rookie campaigns, one stands head and shoulders above the rest. Marquez Valdes-Scantling is the Packers player ready to breakout in 2019.
New head football coach Matt Lafleur comes from the Kyle Shanahan/Sean McVay coaching tree. The increasingly popular West Coast offense, accompanied by a zone running scheme has become the trendy weapon of choice in the NFL. For the Packers, Marquez represents the speed demon on the outside, having registered a 4.37-40 yard dash during his combine workout. His wheels were often on display last season, as on many occasions he and Davante Adams seemed to be the teams’ only deep threats.
