Rodgers singled out Valdes-Scantling

“I think Marquez has had a fantastic spring and really stepped up as a guy who can be an every down player,” Rodgers said.

The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.

MVS was serious about learning the innumerable details of WR play. It was his dedication to, and aptitude for learning that got him on the field early, ahead of ESB and Moore. ESB caught up with MVS later in the year and may even have surpassed him at the end.

While there are a lot of questions about many of the Packers receivers, the potential of all the young guys (along with Allison, Kumerow, Davis), is enough to give a lot of hope in their second years. If even one of last years rookies can step up to look like a true no.2, the Packers are in a good place. If they can get a functional slot receiver as well (and they have the choice of several guys), they could be very difficult to stop.

If Graham/Lewis are used better than they were last year, and Sternberger gives some glimpses of what he could become in another year, glimpses that suggest  he can ascend to be a future no.1 TE, then they could go from being a DCs bad dream to a full-blown nightmare. The Packers have a new playbook, they have the QB, they have the solid O line, they have RBs with enough talent, and they have a defence that could be much better than the recent past. If the receivers take that year two jump, it could be a really exciting 2019 season.

Here's the thing about all that.

MLF wants his WR's to be interchangeable, so even though they have a true #1, like Tae, he will be playing the slot more than we may think, which means Allison, MVS, EQ, and/or Kumerow (throw Moore in there too if his light bulb ever comes on) will be lining up at the #1 and #2 spots when Tae is in the slot.

MLF wants ALL the WR's to be able to play ALL the WR positions so that he can move players around and call plays that exploit a "weak sister" in the opposing secondary.
