The Green Bay Packers currently hold the No. 30 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and will have a chance to bring in a major impact player with that selection. Brian Gutekunst has acknowledged how important it is for the team to go out and bring in more wide receiver talent. That is why many feel a wide receiver could be the target with the team’s first-round pick.
Obvious names that come to mind late in the first round are LSU’s Justin Jefferson and Clemson’s Tee Higgins. However, there may be a dark horse option for the Packers to take a look at.
NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah is buying the hype, as he has Baylor wide receiver Denzel Mims being the projected pick for the Packers at No. 30.
Mims had an elite workout at the NFL Draft Combine and may very well have worked his way up to being a first-round pick. Green Bay needs athleticism at wide receiver and Mims brings that in bunches.
At this point in time, the best comparison that NFL.com could come up with for Mims is New Orleans Saints’ young wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith. He caught 66 passes for 1,020 yards and 12 touchdowns last year at Baylor.
All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at two reasons Mims could be a perfect fit for the Packers at No. 30.
