The Facts: Just as was presumed by many, the Green Bay Packers' failure to draft a wide receiver this past spring was a surprise to just about everybody, including those within the locker room -- even the Pack's No. 1 wideout, Adams. "We were all expecting to have a receiver drafted, but that wasn't the case," Adams told reporters on Tuesday, per NFL Network's Stacey Dales.
Diehards Line: Indeed, adding a receiver to compliment Adams and aid Aaron Rodgers has been a long-running Green Bay storyline. Despite a receiver-rich draft class, the Packers picked Jordan Love in the first round after trading up to grab him. Hence, the receiver quandary has been overshadowed by the already lingering plot line of Rodgers playing with his heir apparent in the same QB room. Rodgers is the only starting quarterback Adams has known in his six-season tenure, which has included three straight trips to the Pro Bowl despite having little help from his fellow wideouts. Thus, as shocking as it was to see Love picked rather than a receiver, Adams is confident in his longtime quarterback going forward. "It may have shocked – you know we were all expecting, it's no secret – we were all expecting to have a receiver drafted, but that wasn't the case," Adams said. "So, Aaron's gonna come in ballin' and doing his thing and he's got the right mindset."
