49. . Wide Receiver. Oklahoma State. James Washington. 14. player

The Green Bay Packers should probably think defense first in this NFL Draft, but passing on a player like Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington is too tough to do.

And wideouts need to be included on Green Bay’s wish list anyway. It’s hard to speculate what the future holds for veteran receiver Jordy Nelson, and it’s also possible Randall Cobb is a cap casualty.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is capable of making almost any receiver look good, but the offense would receive a major boost if a player like Washington was added to the mix.

Plus, it’s impossible to overlook the thought of Rodgers — who arguably has the best deep ball in the NFL right now — paired up with Washington, who could be the best deep-ball threat in this draft class.

This would go a long way to getting Green Bay back on track.
