Tuesday Cheese Curds: Wide receiver battles still going strong late in camp

The Packers have had a lot of competition at the bottom of the wide receiver depth chart.

Given how much the position has changed over the past few years, it’s not that much of a surprise to see spirited competition at wide receiver in training camp. But it’s been interesting to see how little separation has really emerged beyond the Packers’ top three receivers or so; Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and Jayden Reed seem pretty locked in at the top of the depth chart, but beyond that, things have been pretty even.

Samori Toure, Dontayvion Wicks, Bo Melton, and Malik Heath have all had their moments, and given Brian Gutekunst’s love for his draft picks, Grant DuBose can hardly be counted out, either.

The Packers can’t and won’t carry them all, but with the quality of the position still an open question, the quantity of roster contenders can only be a good thing.

It seems like a long shot for DuBose to make the Packers’ roster at this point, given how much time he’s missed in camp. But that would be just another obstacle to overcome, and DuBose has shown that he can take just about anything in stride.
