Around the NFL: Christian Watson

The Packers are going very young at receiver, with probably all first- and second-year guys making up their top three or four wideouts and starter (maybe backup too) at tight end. Many should be undervalued in drafts.   more »


Around the NFL: Romeo Doubs

I like the look of Romeo Doubs. He’s a guy I expect I’ll be selecting in the later rounds of a lot of my drafts as a depth receiver. (I have drafted only one team so far, in fact, and Doubs is on it.)   more »

The Packers then proceeded to use the NFL Draft to surround Love with some new targets. Green bay added wide receiver JAYDEN REED and tight end LUKE MUSGRAVE in the second round and then added another tight end, TUCKER KRAFT, in the third round. The trio will join second-year receivers CHRISTIAN WATSON and ROMEO DOUBS to form the core of a young Packers passing game. Less

While there are still some veteran free agent wideouts available, the Packers have not been active participants in free agency thus far. Less

Factoid: Rookie receivers

I think we should all be drafting rookie receivers a little earlier. There’s risk involved, and I see plenty of slow starters, but I also see a bunch of them outperforming where there were chosen.  more »
