Should the LSU star be available at the 30th pick, it's not hard to imagine the Packers pouncing

Even under the cloud of the coronavirus pandemic, the march to the NFL Draft continues.

The league has confirmed that this month’s draft will go on as planned albeit in a drastically different format. Fans of course will not be allowed to attend and prospects will be doing video interviews instead of being on site as has been the case in normal years.

For the Green Bay Packers, their priorities remain unchanged. Wide receiver is more than likely at the very top of general manager Brian Gutekunst’s shopping list and this draft offers no shortage of talent at the position.

One specific receiver spot the Packers could be looking at is a slot receiver and they could look no further than LSU’s Justin Jefferson. Jefferson had a breakout season during quarterback Joe Burrow’s Heisman-winning campaign and he did most of his damage out of the slot although he also lined up on the perimeter during his time at LSU.

Versatile and at 6-1, 202 lbs., this could be just what the doctor ordered for Green Bay….if he’s available at 30. If he isn’t thankfully the deep class should continue to provide ample talent into the second round.

There’s more on Jefferson plus how the Packers are assisting the community during these strange times in today’s cheese curds.

While he very well could be gone, the Packers landing Jefferson would give them a tremendous talent opposite Davante Adams. You can almost see Aaron Rodgers salivating right now.
