The Green Bay Packers were just one victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game of making a Super Bowl appearance in 2019. While the team fell short in multiple areas, it’s tough not to believe that the contest between the Packers and the 49ers could have gone differently if Aaron Rodgers had more firepower at his disposal.
Besides Davante Adams, Green Bay didn’t have a definitive No. 2 option at wide receiver in 2019. Altogether, Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Geronimo Allison all received chances to prove themselves in the offense. Instead of making a move ahead of last year’s trade deadline, the Packers chose to stay pat with the personnel they already had.
As a result, Green Bay’s passing attack sputtered and they were unable to take down San Francisco in the postseason. Even when the Packers had a chance to drastically improve the position this offseason, the team only added Devin Funchess into the mix.
Given that, plenty of fans still have concerns about whether or not that Green Bay’s offense has a formidable complementary option alongside Adams. And those concerns are definitely reasonable seeing that the team failed to prioritize addressing the wide receiver position this offseason. With that in mind, who has the best chance of emerging as the Packers’ No. 2 wide receiver in 2020?
