Jordy Nelson (No. 87)
Nelson has over 2,000 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns over 28 games the last two seasons. If he can stay healthy for a full season (missed four games in 2012), there's no reason why Nelson can't crack 1,000 yards and 10 scores in 2013.
James Jones (No. 89)
Once prone to mind-numbing drops, Jones broke out in 2012 with career highs in catches (64), yards (784) and touchdowns (14). His 14 scores were tied for the most among receivers last season. However, the 29-year-old Jones is entering a contract season.
Randall Cobb (No. 18)
Few receivers seem closer to the edge of stardom than Cobb, who morphed into Percy Harvin 2.0 in 2012. He caught (80 receptions), ran (132 rushing yards) and returned (over 1,250 combined return yards) during a breakout season. The only question mark surrounding Cobb will be if he returns punts and kicks in 2013. He might be too important offensively to risk on special teams.
Jarrett Boykin (No. 11)
The 6'2", 217-pound Boykin was signed after a rookie tryout last spring and then made the 53-man roster with a strong preseason. He appears to be the front-runner to win the No. 4 receiver job, although he'll have competition from a hoard of young players.
Jeremy Ross (No. 10)
His botched punt return in San Francisco during the postseason is the lasting memory, but Ross will have an opportunity to win a job as a returner and depth receiver this summer. He first needs to regain trust from the coaching staff while ensuring that his disastrous mistake remains in the past. And can he contribute as a receiver?
Charles Johnson (No. 17)
No young receiver on the Packers roster is as enticing as Johnson, who stands 6'2" with impressive measurables. His biggest challenge will be the transition from small-school Grand Valley State to the NFL. If he shows polish early, Johnson could certainly see opportunities as the No. 4 receiver.
Kevin Dorsey (No. 16)
The Packers other seventh-round receiver, Dorsey has impressive size but struggled to post big numbers at Maryland while dealing with poor quarterback play. He'll need a strong month of August to earn a roster spot, but a year on the practice squad wouldn't be the worst scenario.
Terrell Sinkfield (No. 5)
UPDATE: The Packers have waived Sinkfield from the roster.
Sinkfield went undrafted in April despite a few blazing 40-yard dash times during the pre-draft process. He now needs to prove in camp that he's more than just a track star. Still, the Packers have to be intrigued by Sinkfield's impressive straight-line speed.
Myles White (No. 19)
White isn't a big receiver at 6'0" and 182 pounds, but he possesses game-changing speed and the ability to make plays as a vertical option. In the Packers system—and especially with the end of the depth chart up for grabs—White has a chance to make the final 53. He'll first need to showcase his field-flipping abilities in camp.
Sederrick Cunningham (No. 13)
Cunningham appears to be a long shot after a year out of football in 2012. He only caught 17 passes during his senior season at Furham, too. Cunningham's best chance to make a splash is as a kick returner, where he has experience.
Tyrone Walker (No. 83)
The all-time leading receiver in Illinois State history, Walker was signed by Green Bay following a rookie tryout in May. He isn't a burner or a physical specimen, but Walker can earn an increased look by running crisp routes and catching everything thrown his way.
Alex Gillett (No. 7)
A former quarterback at Eastern Michigan, Gillett will now continue his transition to receiver in Green Bay. His limited experience at the position makes him a long shot to stick, even on the practice squad. He'll need to be a quick study.
