GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers look to give Aaron Rodgers a wide receiver for the 2022 NFL draft.

Here's what oddsmaker Adam Thompson believes the Packers' 1st round draft pick will be.

Chris Olave, a wide receiver from Ohio State University, is first on Thompson’s list.

Olave is under a 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash, which Thompson says will help stretch the field.

Olave's size at 6-foot, 187 pounds is a concern for the Packers, which might lead them to focus on another talented wide receiver in the draft.

However, Thompson makes it clear that Olave has the ability to immediately impact the Packers.

Next up on Thompson’s list is Treylon Burks, a wide receiver from the University of Arkansas, who offers more size than Olave at 6-2, 225 pounds.

According to Thompson’s predictions, Jahan Dotson, a wide receiver from Penn State University, is under Burks as the next potential draft pick for the Packers.

However, Thompson says to not be surprised if the Packers use a few of their many draft picks to move up and get USC 6-4 WR Drake London.

Lastly, Thompson sees Jameson Williams, a wide receiver from the University of Alabama, as a pick for the Packers.
