21. Green Bay Packers: DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama
The Packers faithful are probably still recovering from the shock of the Jordan Love pick in April’s draft, but the idea of bringing in someone like DeVonta Smith could ease their frustrations a bit.
Although Jordan Love is not a bad prospect, the Packers did some serious damage by putting a clock on Aaron Rodgers’ time with the team.
How much damage? We won’t know for a couple of months, but Rodgers has been outspoken that it means he won’t be finishing his career in Green Bay.
DeVonta Smith was a bit overshadowed this past season by Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III, even a bit by Jaylen Waddle. That doesn’t mean he’s not a first-round prospect in his own right.
Smith has big-play ability, really good speed, and he would be a dynamic vertical threat to go along with Davante Adams in Green Bay.
In three seasons at Alabama, Smith is averaging 18 yards per reception and he’s got 23 touchdowns and counting.
