Packers’ best NFL Draft replacement for Davante Adams

Packers’ Best Nfl Draft Option To Replace Davante Adams

Davante Adams could be replaced by one of the Green Bay Packers’ two first-round picks.

With Davante Adams now playing for the Las Vegas Raiders, the Green Bay Packers have no choice but to use one of their two first-round picks to replace their former No. 1 wide receiver.

The Packers have the No. 22 overall pick this spring as part of their return deal for Adams from the Silver and Black.

They also have their own first-round choice, No. 28, in the first round. What other choices do the Packers have, despite the fact that they rarely utilize first-round picks on skill-position players? The good news is that they have the financial means to pick a capable No. 1 wide receiver.

In the latter stages of the first round, Chris Olave of Ohio State, Treylon Burks of Arkansas, and Jahan Dotson of Penn State were all in the mix for the Packers. So, who will Green Bay most likely draft as a wide receiver?

Green Bay Packers: In the NFL Draft, who could replace Davante Adams?

Alright. This is one way of looking at it. Olave is the team’s finest receiving prospect. He could be available for the Packers’ No. 22 pick, but he’s more likely to come off the board in the first part of the first round.

At No. 28, Olave will not be present. Burks may or may not be on the board at No. 28, but Dotson will undoubtedly be. As a result, it all boils down to whatever wide receiver they want the most.

While all three players can immediately contribute to the Packers’ offense, Olave has to be the man. If the Packers have to combine choices 22 and 28 and trade up just a few spots to replace Adams, they’ll have to do it.

Although Adams was a former second-round pick, Olave has been a stalwart in the Big Ten for years. He also has very little bust potential.

Though it’s unlikely that they’ll go wrong with any of the three, Olave’s upside may be too much to pass up. Yes, he shared a receiving corps with Garrett Wilson and Jax Smith-Njigba, but there’s no denying how well-coached he was in Columbus while playing under Ryan Day and Brian Hartline. The Packers will be pleased if Olave is selected in the first round.

Although Olave may be out of reach, the Packers have the wherewithal to trade up for him if necessary.
