Jayden Reed, WR (GB)

Stays in Midwest with Green Bay

The Packers selected Reed in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 50th overall.

Reed was not generally expected to go this early, but the former Michigan State/Western Michigan standout is a likable prospect. Reed initially torched as a true freshman at Western Michigan in 2018 before transferring to Michigan State, where he tended to blend in to the mediocre Spartans offense. Reed is more of a WR2/WR3 sort of prospect due to his slight frame (5-foot-11, 187 pounds) and merely adequate athleticism (4.45-second 40), but Reed's production at both schools clearly indicate a starter-level skill set. Reed was also an excellent punt returner in college, scoring thrice and averaging a stellar 15.3 yards per return. Reed should have a solid chance of cracking the top third of Green Bay's receiver depth chart as a rookie.
