MIAMI GARDENS, FL – OCTOBER 12: Wide receiver Jordy Nelson

The Green Bay Packers enter training camp with 12 wide receivers on their 90-man roster. This group will likely be cut in half by the end of August. The Packers have a nice starting trio in Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and Randall Cobb.

However, they need more young talent to emerge on the roster. Nelson is the veteran of the group and still Aaron Rodgers‘ favorite target on the field.

Adams came into his own last season, and Cobb is ever the tough competitor who often gets overlooked in the offense. However, injury can strike at any point and the Packers need to develop young playmakers at the position.

Two late-round rookies, DeAngelo Yancey and Malachi Dupre, could factor into the picture, or Green Bay could count on the development of second-year players Trevor Davis and Geronimo Allison. And is this Jeff Janis‘ last chance to prove he’s more than just a special teams contributor?

Let’s take a closer look at the Packers wide receiver position heading into training camp for the 2017 season.
