While Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb continue to top the
With Ed Williams and Jamel Johnson also in the depth mix, wideout is a crowded position for the Packers at this stage. The fact that Adams was a second-round draft pick in 2014 makes it likely that he'll stick around after last cuts, but either way, between the return to health of Nelson and all the competition at wideout, Adams could be hard-pressed to match the 50-catch output he turned in over 13 games in 2015.
Datone Jones did not have his fifth-year option picked up by the Green Bay Packers , Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Packers took Jones in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, but, like all of Green Bay's first-round selections since the CBA was updated in 2011, was deemed unworthy of having his fifth-year option exercised. The decision is fully justified, as Jones has been disappointingly average in his tenure as a Packer thus far and would command a hefty $6.57 million. However, defensive coordinator Dom Capers hasn't written off the UCLA product quite yet. Jones will reportedly shift to an 'elephant linebacker' role in 2016 as a means for him to play both alongside, and in place of, teammate Julius Peppers. Should Jones prove effective in his new role, he may earn a deal similar to that of Green Bay's 2012 first-round pick, Nick Perry, who signed a one-year, $5 million contract after having his own fifth-year option declined a year before.
The Green Bay Packers selected Murphy in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 200th overall.
Murphy was a very effective starter at left tackle for Stanford in 2015, and right tackle before that, but he falls this far due to a lack of reach (33.5-inch arms) and the need to add weight. Murphy probably can't play the left side due to his short arms, and on the right side he wouldn't currently have the anchoring ability to get by. He might get a look at right tackle or guard in Green Bay if he can add about 15 pounds of weight.
The Green Bay Packers selected Davis in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 163rd overall.
Davis doesn't project as more than a fourth receiver in the NFL, but he's very athletic (4.42 40-yard dash, 6.6-second three-cone drill) and should give Green Bay an explosive kick returner option.
The Green Bay Packers selected Dean Lowry in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 137th overall.
Lowry is a huge figure and an intriguing 3-4 end prospect for the Packers, standing at 6-foot-6, 296 pounds with standout athleticism for such a big lineman. His athleticism is only average when compared to defensive ends, but when compared to the more similar position of defensive tackle, Lowry grades as an elite athlete.
