Another weapon for Aaron Rodgers. A complement to Davante Adams. A much-needed explosive element to the Green Bay offense.
With the 30th pick tonight in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, general manager Brian Gutekunst may be hard-pressed to not select a receiver amid a deep and talented class.
Green Bay has not selected a wide receiver in the first round in 18 years—the last being Javon Walker of Florida State with the No. 20 selection in 2002.
Brandon Aiyuk of Arizona State could be a perfect fit in Matt LaFleur’s offense. He checks all the boxes.
The 6-foot, 205-pound receiver has the size, athleticism, and speed (4.5 in 40) to be an instant starter and option for Rodgers to exploit opposing defenses.
Most intriguing is Aiyuk’s explosiveness and ability to run after the catch—with the potential to turn a short route into a score from anywhere on the field. He also could be utilized in the return game.
In a much-anticipated “stay at home” draft, let the NFL off-season begin!
