With players like Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Jarrett Boykin and Davante Adams, it's easy to get excited about the depth at wide receiver. However, outside of Nelson and Cobb, the receiving corps is really filled with unknown players.
So, is the depth at wide receiver really that good? Well, quarterback Aaron Rodgers seems to think so. He had this to say about it, according to Jason Wilde at ESPN Milwaukee:
I’m excited about the guys we brought in, also excited about the possibility of some guys coming back. Jarrett [Boykin] came off a season where he really improved, Myles [White] did some really nice things and Chris Harper showed signs as well during practice. It’s a deep group. I think it could be as deep a group as we’ve had here. It might not be the big names like we had in the past when we had the whole stable of guys, but I think you could definitely see us keeping six guys there in that position because we are pretty deep group.
Rodgers has had some talented groups of receivers in the past, but he clearly thinks this one could be the best. It'll be interesting to see just how well guys like Boykin, Adams, Jeff Janis and Jared Abbrederis perform once the pads come on.
If this group is really as deep as everyone seems to think it is, we could see one of the best offenses in Green Bay in recent history.
