Predicting the 5 Wide Receivers Who Will Be On Green Bay Packers’ 2014 Active Roster

The Green Bay Packers currently have 10 wide receivers on the roster. However, only half of those players will be suiting up on game day in 2014. Here is a prediction for the five wide receivers who will be on Green Bay’s 53-man roster this season.

The former walk-on for the Wisconsin Badgers had his dreams come true when the Packers drafted him in the fifth round. His great hands and outstanding route running will make him an ideal No. 5 receiver on the depth chart. Abbrederis will have a big-impact on special teams in 2014, but don’t be surprised to see him on the field catching passes from Aaron Rodgers as well.

After James Jones left via free agency, the Packers knew they had to come up with another stellar slot receiver who plays Jones’ style of football. Davante Adams doesn’t have tremendous speed, but he will catch everything that will be thrown his way. Watch him beat opponents with his precision route-running skills, while also flashing signs of above-average athleticism.

With Jones now gone, even more will be expected from Jarrett Boykin this year. In his first full season in the NFL, Boykin ranked third on the team in receptions (49), yards (681) and receptions over 20 yards (10). Hopefully, consistent play at quarterback will improve his performance greatly in 2014. Boykin is the predicted No. 3 starter on the depth chart, but there are no guarantees as Abbrederis and Adams will provide quality competition.

Randall Cobb continues to impress year after year. Even though he had a horrible injury last season that forced him to miss 10 games, he stepped up big in a must-win contest against the Chicago Bears. Cobb will be the No. 2 receiver on the team for the first time in his career, which means the Packers will have to get him the ball more in order for them to find success. Expect plenty of production out of Cobb, as he will be in a contract year.

Jordy Nelson is the most underrated wide receiver in the game. His speed is hard to gauge, he has unbelievable athleticism, and his ability to haul in clutch catches makes him one of the best in the business. The relationship he has developed with Rodgers makes them a very dangerous tandem, one that could take the Packers to great heights in 2014. He will be the team’s No. 1 receiver, which is a role that he posted career numbers in last season.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
