Aaron Rodgers already impressed with Packers rookie WR Romeo Doubs

One of the Green Bay Packers’ rookie wide receivers is already drawing high praise from Aaron Rodgers in training camp

The Green Bay Packers passed on a wide receiver with both of their first-round picks in the 2022 NFL draft, then traded up to the top of the second round of North Dakota State’s Christian Watson, but it’s a fourth-round pass-catcher who is stealing the headlines in training camp.

Romeo Doubs has made some head-turning plays in practice, which has clearly impressed Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

“That’s kind of rare for a young guy,” Rodgers said Wednesday about Doubs’ ability to make “wow” plays during his first training camp (via The Athletic’s Matt Schneidman).

Doubs was a big-play machine at Nevada, and without Davante Adams, the Packers would love to get plenty of them from their rookie fourth-rounder this season and beyond.

NFL Letdown Games for Every Team

What are the potential letdown games for every NFL team? They’re the battles that should be a problem.

What games are the ones each NFL team has to look out for? It’s a LONG season with plenty of lulls, so which games are set up to be a letdown moment for every team?

Predicting each outcome takes into account location, scheduling fatigue, matchup intensity, and much more. These are the games – including the sandwich battles between two giant opponents – that each team should probably win, but might have issues.

2022 NFL Schedules

Quay Walker already soaking up knowledge from De’Vondre Campbell

Green Bay Packers first-round pick Quay Walker has found a valuable resource in new teammate De’Vondre Campbell

The Green Bay Packers rewarded one of last year’s best free-agent bargains when they signed linebacker De’Vondre Campbell to a new contract extension this offseason, and they further reinforced that same position group by selecting Georgia’s Quay Walker in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft.

While Walker brings an impressive blend of size and athleticism to the table, Campbell’s experience is providing the rookie a valuable resource to learn from in his first training camp.

The former Bulldog star recently spoke about his efforts to soak up anything and everything he can from his veteran teammate, as the Packers prepare for another deep playoff run this season:

Why Packers fans should be excited about Christian Watson

Breaking down what North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson brings to the Green Bay Packers

After spending both of their first-round picks in the 2022 NFL draft on Georgia defenders, the Green Bay Packers made a bold move to trade up to the top of the second round, landing an explosive pass-catcher to help replace Davante Adams.

North Dakota State’s Christian Watson brings a rare combination of size and speed to a passing offense that just lost its top two receivers in Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, giving Aaron Rodgers a dynamic weapon that he desperately needs.

After dominating FCS competition in college, Watson crushed the NFL Scouting Combine. He measured in at 6-4 and 208 pounds, then proceeded to run a 4.36-second 40-yard dash, showing off impressive speed to go along with his big frame and long arms.

While Watson still has some rough edges to smooth out in his game, his physical traits give him limitless upside, especially with a quarterback like Rodgers throwing him the ball. Rodgers has the arm strength to take full advantage of Watson’s ability to stretch the field, and his combination of size and speed should make him effective after the catch, turning short receptions into big plays.

After the departures of Adams and MVS this offseason, Watson should get plenty of opportunities to make an immediate impact for Green Bay as they look to remain among the NFC contenders for the Super Bowl in 2022.

Romeo Doubs thrilled to join historic line of Packers receivers

Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs is well aware of his new team’s history of legendary pass-catchers

The Green Bay Packers made headlines when they traded up to the top of the second round in the 2022 NFL draft to land North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson, but they also landed another promising pass-catcher on Day 3 who could make a big impact.

Romeo Doubs, a fourth-round pick out of Nevada, brings a well-rounded skill set and a pro-ready frame to Green Bay, where he knows there’s a long history of legendary wide receivers that set the bar high for the next generation.

Here’s what Doubs had to say about some of the great Packers receivers he’s watched over the years:

After trading Davante Adams and letting Marquez Valdes-Scantling walk in free agency this offseason, the Packers will need the likes of Doubs and Watson to make an immediate impact for Aaron Rodgers and the passing game this season.

Traditionally and statistically, Day 3 of the NFL Draft is a total wasteland. You’re far, far better packaging your picks to move up into the top three rounds of a future draft – the odds of getting a consistently decent starter are shockingly small.

But every team thinks it can make magic out of the Day 3 mess of prospects, and it’s worth a shot to dumb-luck into a possible mainstay. What are the remaining needs that need to be filled for each team? Here are every team’s picks so far with the possibilities of who they could get.

Of course this all blows up once the trades start flying, but the idea is to give a rough snapshot of what each team might be able to do.

Why Packers fans should be excited about Jordan Love

The Packers made a bold move in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, trading up for Jordan Love to groom him behind Aaron Rodgers

The Packers shocked the nation when they selected Utah State quarterback Jordan Love in the 2020 NFL draft, moving up four spots to the No. 26 overall selection to take him.

While the move has been the subject of criticism since Love won’t help Green Bay’s chances of winning under Aaron Rodgers’ title window, there couldn’t have been many better landing spots for the rookie quarterback. A raw, yet wickedly talented project, Love is not the type of quarterback who is ready to start in the NFL right away.

Not only will landing in Green Bay allow him to develop under a professional coaching staff before making his debut, but he will get to learn under one of the best quarterbacks of the current generation. Having time to develop when a quarterback isn’t ready can be the difference between a Patrick Mahomes situation and a Mitchell Trubisky situation.

On the field, Love is an incredibly toolsy quarterback with a very high ceiling. He has one of the strongest arms in the 2020 class, as he can throw with great velocity, deliver an impressive deep ball and deliver rockets from an off-base platform or an awkward delivery angle. The flashes he has shown in his touch down the field are certainly intriguing, and if cleaned up and made more consistent, he can be a dangerous deep thrower in the NFL. He has an athletic skillset for a quarterback too, as he has good agility in and out of the pocket and can pick up yards on the ground.

The Packers have a talented roster that is built to win now, and while one could argue that drafting a wide receiver in the first round would have fit that approach, kudos to their management for not being afraid of being aggressive in acquiring the player they believe will be their future franchise quarterback. If all goes well, Love will be the next quarterback in a chain of extremely talented players at the position that Green Bay has had over the past 30 years.

TEAM NEEDS

Wide Receiver

As of right now, the Packers have very little help alongside Davante Adams at wide receiver. Adams is a star, sure, but they desperately need another reliable starter for Aaron Rodgers to throw to. With the depth of this wideout class, Green Bay should be able to find a starter in the draft.

Linebacker

The Packers replaced Blake Martinez with Christian Kirksey at linebacker, doing little else to bolster the depth at the position. There’s still a glaring hole at the other starting inside linebacker position, so the team could look to plug in a rookie if the value is right.

Offensive Tackle

Ricky Wagner is a step down from Bryan Bulaga at right tackle, and even if the veteran bounces back from his poor 2019 season, he turns 31 in October. Green Bay could stand to look for an eventual replacement early in the draft if an intriguing prospect falls.
