It’s official, Jayden Reed is headed to the NFC North. The Lions unfortunately won’t be graced by Reed’s services, but division rival Green Bay will be getting the Spartan wideout.
Reed’s stock has been on the rise ever since the Reese’s Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine and he went from a fourth or fifth-round selection all the way up to a second-rounder on Friday.
To make things even more special for Reed, it’s his birthday.
Reed was selected No. 50 overall by the Packers.
Although the Packers’ offense won’t be quite as effective with Aaron Rodgers moving on to the Jets, they’re going to have some decent young weapons at receiver, including Reed.
He should compete for serious playing time right away.
Jayden Reed could crack the starting rotation
Everyone was wondering where Reed was going to end up and many Michigan State fans wanted him to catch on with the Lions, but Green Bay may actually be a really good spot for him.
The Packers need receivers and they have for the past couple of years. They currently have Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and now Reed as projected starters, according to ESPN.
If he can have a strong summer, he could slide into that starting role officially.
We all know he’s talented enough to make an instant impact and if he can star on special teams, he could see the field immediately no matter what.
It’s good to see Reed landing in a spot where he could excel right away.
