Default OTA Season Surveys: #3 WR

Reading thru an article from Matt Stein over at B/R, a case was made that Davante Edwards will be the #3 WR by the opening game, surpassing Jarrett Boykin.

Quote:

No team in the NFL has had the type of success the Packers have had at drafting second-round receivers. From Greg Jennings to Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, the Packers excel at picking wide receivers in Round 2. They're looking to keep that streak alive this year with Davante Adams.

Bleacher Report's Zach Kruse did a great breakdown of what current players Adams resembles. In that article, Kruse calls Adams a blend of James Jones, Greg Jennings, Dez Bryant and Michael Crabtree. Those are some rather talented players to be compared to.

The reality with Adams is that it wouldn't be a surprise at all to see him jump over Jarrett Boykin on the depth chart. He's more skilled than Boykin, and he certainly has more potential.

Look for Adams to start the regular season as the No. 3 receiver for the Packers.
I think there's little chance McCarthy will bump Boykin down below him that soon.
However, I can see McCarthy getting more snaps for Adams if he truly is making plays.

Who do you think will be our #3 WR by the end of September (month one)?

Honestly I'm lower on Adams than most at this point. Boykin has the playbook familiarity and chemistry with Rodgers I'm going with him.

I doubt Adams unseats Boykin from day 1. I almost think it's unfathomable. Randall Cobb, who I had graded higher coming out, barely contributed his rookie year. He had that first game that was great and they really didn't use him much after.

Our WR group was stronger than but still, rookie WRs rarely make huge impacts. Maybe one or two a year. I do think we'll give Adams some red zone looks in 4 or 5 packages because his skillset should be able to immediately help us there but I wouldn't imagine him being in a lot of 3 WR sets this year (barring injury.)

That's not because I dislike him or don't think he'll be great, I really like him and think he could become our legit #1, but the learning curve for WRs is rough. You go from limited route trees against really bad corners to complicated option routes against elite athletes at the corner position. It's one of the harder transitions, along with probably DLineman (who go from facing slow/horrible technique OLineman to huge, fast, technique driven NFL lineman.)

So do I think he'll be the #3? No. Frankly, I'm not sure he'll be in on the 4 WR sets as Abbrederis is a more natural fit as a slot guy. I wouldn't be surprised if we found Boykin - Cobb - Abbrederis - Nelson to be the most effective 4 wide. I really think Adams might be used more as a special weapon in certain situations, especially red zone.

Now, I'll be absolutely SHOCKED if he isn't one of our base split ends next year.

Boykin

WR is a tough position in which to come and contribute in year one. The fact that Boykin was as productive as he was, and considering a carousel of quarterbacks throwing his way, speaks to his focus and maturity.

I'm rooting for the kid. Adams being drafted has got to have lit a fire under him. I'm hoping he continues to grow.
