The Green Bay Packers added some big targets for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to throw to as they drafted three wide receivers in the NFL Draft.

Green Bay used fourth, fifth, and sixth round selections on wide receivers, with Missouri’s J’Mon Moore as the shortest one at 6-foot-3. After taking Moore in the fourth round, the Packers took South Florida’s Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the fifth round and Notre Dame’s Equanimeous St. Brown in the sixth.

“I think you’re always looking for bigger targets,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy told the team’s website. “It makes sense, doesn’t it? Bigger catching radius, completion percentage. I think any quarterback would prefer to throw to a bigger target.”

The Packers have some shoes to fill after parting with Jordy Nelson in March but still have Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.
