Colin Cowherd Reacts To Packers First Round Draft Picks

Colin Cowherd on The Herd.


The Green Bay Packers had two first-round picks and didn't spend either on a wide receiver, let alone an offensive player. What a mess.

The Packers have a clear need at the receiver position. They traded away Davante Adams to the Raiders this offseason and now don't have a clear-cut No. 1 option for Aaron Rodgers and the passing attack. For some reason, Green Bay's front office doesn't think the position is a pressing need.

The Packers went out and took two defensive players - both former Georgia stars - with their two first-round picks. We're sure both will prove to be great players. But Green Bay's offense still needs some help.

FS1's Colin Cowherd is a bit confused by the team's draft strategy.

"There were 6 WRs taken in the top 20 picks. There were 9 trades in the first round... Packers, they didn't do anything,'" he said. "Took 2 defensive guys."

With that being said, Devonte Wyatt and Quay Walker are a couple of studs. Defense wins championships, and each will go a long way in helping the Packers get back to the big game.

Green Bay, meanwhile, will no doubt find one or two wideouts in the remaining rounds. George Pickens, John Metchie III and Skyy Moore could all be in play when the Packers make the 53rd overall pick in the second round.
