Boykin has shown he's fast enough to get deep. I don't consider him a speed blazer though.

His main asset is his size. Hands too.

I am not sure if all this arguing in Boykin's favor is meant to elevate him to a status he has yet to achieve or what. He was a decent #3 receiver last season and right now he is nothing more than that. The Packers have 2 receivers that are in the top 15 in the league for sure, you might even be able to argue for the top 10 (not sure I would but I would listen to your arguments) but that is really it. The thing is they may not need more than that. Maybe having two stud receivers and a bunch of average guys will be enough. I hope it is because for now, slow, fast or in between, that is what we have.

With 2 stud receivers that will give the "average" ones more opportunities. If they run their routes and catch the ball they will have solid numbers no matter it hey are #3,4 or 5 on the depth chart. There is plenty of Aaron to go around.

Two WR that are in the top 15? Did the Packers make a trade that I am not aware of??

Jordy Nelson and ... ???

Cobb son. Cobb.

Walters #7 and 11

ESPN #7 & 10

FOX #10 & 9


These are the first 3 I looked at. I don't care what happened last year. I only care what people think this year will be like.

I find it interesting that Boykin is ranked above Jennings and James Jones in the Fox rankings. Obviously those are just guesstimated projections, but interesting that non-Packer fans don't anticipate Greg and James and their 9 and 3 million dollar contracts to outperform a UDFA making about 570k this year.

I think it is more respect of Rodgers than anything else.

I don't think Boykin should be ranked ahead of Jennings, or Jones. My only point was that Boykin is a lock to start the season as our number 3, barring injury or off field trouble. That was it.

I don't think he should be rated above them either. That is why I said those that rank him ahead of Jennings or Jones are out of respect of Aaron.
