3 overrated players on the Packers right now

Who is the most overrated player on the Packers?

By: Jake Rajala

The Pack will continue to strive for their second Lombardi trophy with the ageless Aaron Rodgers. Although, it will be difficult to return to the big dance without Davante Adams. So, I’m going to untwine three underperforming profiles on the Packers that need to help their two-time reigning MVP lead the Packers to Super Bowl glory.

Randall Cobb

Randall Cobb might be a Packers legend, but he is also a 31-year-old coming off his least productive season in receiving yards since his rookie campaign. As widely enunciated, Tae is getting milkshakes with Derek Carr, so Cobb needs to bounce back in the young WR room. I expect Christian Watson to be a stud, but Cobb (who may be playing his final season in Green Bay) absolutely needs to be the ole reliable weapon for A-Rod moving forward.

Robert Tonyan

Robert Tonyan was from another planet in 2020, as he recorded 11 touchdowns and garnered comparisons to Gronk. In 2021, he made countless cheeseheads believe that he was a fluke, or perhaps a talent like James Jones that would play above his athletic ability with the Packers HOF QB. Tonyan recorded 204 yds and 2 touchdowns in 8 games a season ago. A-Rod will definitely want the x-factor Tonyan to be healthy, motivated this summer, and in-sync early on.

Jarran Reed

Jarran Reed might be a shiny, $4.5 million dollar face in Green Bay, but he needs to elevate his craft in 2022. Reed has the potential to be a stellar IDL and he’s been a force against the run. It should be noted that his pass-rushing ability has been up and down. He recorded 10.5 sacks and 24 QB hits in 2018 and 6.5 sacks and 14 QB hits in 2020. Although, he took a slight south turn in 2021: 2.5 sacks and 12 QB hits. He will look to return to being a successful pass-rusher next to Kenny Clark moving forward.

5 WR targets for the Packers right now

Who is the best WR target for the Packers?

By: Jake Rajala

The Green Bay Packers chose to not select a wide receiver in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. However, Aaron Rodgers was still a huge fan of the fellow NFC North draft’s selection of Jameson Williams. Nonetheless, A-Rod was able to garner a rookie WR with quality potential in round two in Christian Watson. The new Packer will help Sammy Watkins, Allen Lazard, and Randall Cobb fuel the 2020 and 2021 MVP signal-caller.

With that stated, it would make sense if the Packers brought in a talented/veteran WR for competition. Here are five wide-outs that would be exciting, unique additions for GB.

Will Fuller

The New Orleans Saints signed a big-name player (Tyrann Mathieu) at a key position after the draft and it might be time for the Packers to ink a household profile at a need position post the NFL draft, as well. The explosive WR Will Fuller has flirted with the Pack in prior years but would definitely be the perfect fit for the Packers in 2022 (to say the least). He can be a fantastic deep threat, which should bring music to Matt LaFleur’s ears.

Desean Jackson

The idea of GB signing Desean Jackson isn’t sexy, but the Eagles legend might be a nice value signing for Matt LaFleur’s squad. He quietly contributed 454 yards for LA/LV last season. After Jackson signed with Sean McVay’s dream team in 2021, he likely wants to play for a Super Bowl contender at this stage in his career, too.

Odell Beckham Jr.

OBJ may not reunite with Los Angeles or New Orleans, so he could be tempted to sign with a different NFC contender: Green Bay. If the Packers could sign Beckham Jr, they could have a quality WR room in the back-end of next season. He may also help Rodgers stay away from a retirement home beyond 2022.

Marquise Goodwin

The alpha persona Marquise Goodwin isn’t scared of competing for the Olympics or flat out beating any cornerback in a foot race. Goodwin’s athletic ability could be utilized quite well in Matt Nagy’s Rodgers’s passing attack.

Allen Hurns

The former undrafted wideout Allen Hurns unveiled 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2015, but he hasn’t recorded 500+ yards in a single season since 2015. He might be a great depth signing with sneaky potential for the Packers.
