It's already manifested in Jennings being pushed out by how good the following picks were and can take over.

Greg Jennings already expendable? Wtf?

It's great, but seeing Driver and Jennings likely gone after this season breaks my heart as much as a roster move can.
Packers have always done well scouting and developing WR's

Before Thompson we saw guys like

Robert Brooks (3rd rounder in 1992)
Bill Schroeder (6th rounder in 1994)
Antonio Freeman (3rd rounder in 1995)
Donald Driver (7th rounder in 1999)

Only 1st rounder used by Packers in my recent memory was Javon Walker (20th overall in 2002). And his career fell apart after he left GB

Honestly only WR the Packers drafted in recent memory that I can recall not really impressing was Robert Ferguson (2001 2nd rounder)

The Packers develop QB's and WR's over last 20+ yrs well ,, Its one of reasons that GB coaches/executives are so highly sought by other franchises around league
