The Green Bay Packers are once again contenders this season in a stacked NFC. However, there are some holes that the team will need to fill. While they could win a Super Bowl this season, it is much more likely that they win next year with an offseason focused on adding needed pieces in the NFL Draft and free agency.

Among the necessary additions that the Packers should be looking to make in the offseason would be a playmaking and fast wide receiver. They didn’t make any additions at the position this offseason, which has hurt them.

Aaron Rodgers is back to play at an MVP level and the Packers’ offense has been lethal. Adding one more piece could make all of the difference.

Looking ahead to the 2021 NFL Draft class, there is one player that the Packers should already be targeting in the first round. That player would be Purdue Boilermakers wide receiver Rondale Moore.

Moore would be a perfect fit in Matt LaFleur’s offense as their slot wide receiver. His speed, route running, and ability to make plays in the open field would take Green Bay to another level. Rodgers would have a new favorite target to work with alongside Davante Adams.

During the 2019 season with Purdue, Moore caught 29 passes for 387 yards and two touchdowns. It was not the breakout season that many were expecting for a couple of different reasons. Moore caught 114 passes for 1,258 yards and 12 touchdowns back in 2018.

Standing in at 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, Moore does not have a ton of size. But, what he lacks in size he makes up for with speed and hard work. If the Packers were able to pick him up, their entire offense would fall into place.

With the NFL Draft process still months away, Moore has already drawn comparisons to Kansas City Chiefs star wideout Tyreek Hill. He may never develop into that big of a star, but he has that kind of potential.

Expect to see quite a few teams have major interest in selecting Rondale Moore in the 2021 NFL Draft. He is the kind of playmaker that would take an offense to a new level.

The Packers are a perfect fit and they should already be taking a long look at how they could possibly bring him on board.
