Rookie of the Year?
WR Charone Peake Makes A Significant Impact In His First PFL Season
GREEN BAY, WI. [IP] -
The Green Bay Packers showed a lot of promise early on in 2021, building a 7-4 record before dropping four of their last five games to finish 8-8. Despite the disappointing end to their season, the one player who makes them hopeful for the future is rookie wide receiver Charone Peake. The 6'2" 209 lb. wideout from Clemson was taken by the Packers with the fifth overall pick in the 2021 draft and gave the franchise an instant return on their investment by finishing at or near the top in every receiving category.
Despite being double teamed for much of the season, Peake was the lone bright spot in a Green Bay passing attack that tended to be erratic at times due to inconsistent play at the quarterback position. The Packers will be looking to bring in someone to pair with Peake in order to make defenses pay when they try to double him in future seasons.
