The Green Bay Packers Offseason
Best Move of the Offseason: Trading Aaron Rodgers
The Aaron Rodgers trade may leave a sour taste in Packers fans mouths but his time in Green Bay ended in 2021 in my opinion and they delayed the inevitable by not trading him last year. Trading him allowed them to move up to #13 overall, grab a 2nd pick in 2023, and also very likely nab them a 1st round pick in 2024 or at least a 2nd. It also firmly places Jordan Love in the starting position as a franchise quarterback and we shall see if those three years of development behind one of the great quarterbacks in NFL history meant anything.
The Top Draft Target
#13 Jaxon Smith-Njigba (WR) Ohio State University
The Packers new regime at quarterback in Jordan Love has started after the trading Aaron Rodgers and getting Love a new weapon to throw to without having to make circus plays should be a a priority in Day 1. No receiver in the NFL draft is as good a route-runner as JSN and his ability to not only run the route-tree but separate with rare consistency would be a dream pick for the Packers. He'd allow Love to develop at a much faster pace and not lose confidence in his abilities as long as he can hit him when he's open.
