You Can Never Have Enough Receivers In Green Bay

This was a topic I brought up a couple weeks ago when discussing the tight ends, but the Green Bay Packers really need to make sure they have depth at receiver. On average, GM Ted Thompson drafts one receiver (wide receiver or tight end) per year, but has skipped the wide receiver position in the draft in 2009 and 2010. I don't want him to ignore one position for too long, and neither does Mike Spofford at Packers.com:

For the past three years, the Packers’ pass-catching personnel has stood up to anyone’s in the NFL.
Luxuries like that don’t last forever, though, and for the first time since 2008, the Packers may be in the market for future reinforcements in this year’s draft.

It's not necessary to use their first round pick on a receiver, but there should be someone brought in to push WR Brett Swain, replace WR James Jones if he leaves in free agency, or add depth in case WR Donald Driver is another year closer to retirement.
