Former Michigan State wide receiver Jayden Reed named NFL Breakout Player for 2024 season

Entering his second NFL season, Green Bay Packers wide receiver and Michigan State University product Jayden Reed is one of the league’s most promising up-and-coming offensive weapons.

Selected by the Packers in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft, Reed averaged 793 yards and eight touchdowns on 64 receptions in his rookie season and started 13 of the 16 games he played.

In a recent article by analyst Bucky Brooks, Reed was named to Brooks’ 2024 NFL All-Breakout Team.

This is what Brooks had to say about Reed:

“On a team without a true WR1, Reed could rise to the top as a reliable chain player with strong hands and dynamic running ability. Operating primarily out of the slot, the second-year pro is a rare find as a vertical threat. He has polished route-running skills that allow him to win on crossers, digs and deep overs. Reed earned Jordan Love’s trust during a great rookie season (64 catches, 793 receiving yards and eight scores) that put the former second-round pick on the radar as a potential No. 1 option in Green Bay. These two should make even more beautiful music in their second season together.”

The following offensive players are all on Brooks’ All-Breakout team:

QB: Bryce Young, Carolina Panthers

RB: De’Von Achane, Miami Dolphins

WR: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Seattle Seahawks

WR: Khalil Shakir, Buffalo Bills

WR: Jayden Reed, Green Bay Packers

TE: Dalton Kincaid, Buffalo Bills

OT: Darnell Wright, Chicago Bears

OT: Dawand Jones, Cleveland Browns

OG: Peter Skoronski, Tennessee Titans

OG: Matthew Bergeron, Atlanta Falcons

C: Joe Tippman, New York Jets
