With the NFL Draft scheduled for later this week, Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst spoke to the media on Monday about this year's wide receiver class.

It's unclear if Rodgers will have a say in who the Packers select in the draft, but Gutekunst did say the four-time MVP will play a huge role when it comes to developing their receiving corps.

"Aaron’s going to be heavily involved in the development of not only players who are in our building right now, but certainly whoever we bring in," Gutekunst said.

The Packers will need to find replacements for Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the upcoming draft.

Green Bay has plenty of draft capital, owning the No. 22 and No. 28 picks in the first round. Additionally, the front office owns a pair of second-round picks.

While the Packers may not use multiple picks on a wide receiver, there's no question they need to use at least one of their premier picks on that position.

As of now, the Packers' depth chart at wide receiver features Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, Amari Rodgers and Sammy Watkins.
