According to most of the pundits, the Green Bay Packers perceived poor draft signals a changing of the guard in Green Bay. No longer will they ride the arm of Aaron Rodgers and hope the defense can hold up. It started last year a little bit but it now appears its official, the passing game is dead in Green Bay.
The more I think about it, though, the passing game could end up being the best it’s ever been under quarterback Aaron Rodgers. If head coach Mike LeFleur can actually build the running game he so desperately wants, a fired up Rodgers might be unstoppable if he buys in. This offense has never had a QB like Rodgers. Not in Los Angeles, not in San Francisco, or two years ago in Tennessee under LeFleur. I believe Rodgers wants to win and the only way to do that is to abide and play his absolute best. A trip to Pennsylvania Online Casinos might find the Packers Super Bowl odds have dropped. Might be time to invest a sawbuck or two.
Taking a second round running back, a third round tight end, and three offensive lineman in the sixth, clearly indicate things are about to change. Or do they? Depth on the offensive line has been a problem for a long time and center Corey Linsley will be a free agent after the season. Help was needed there no matter what style of offense you are running. Aaron Jones is also a free agent after the season and he’s not exactly a proven commodity, either. And Lord knows the struggles the Packers have had finding a serviceable tight end.
On the other side of the ball the Packers added a linebacker, edge rusher and defensive back. Of all Packers picks NFL.com only lists one as a projected starter. And that is Jordan Love of course. I kind of like running back AJ Dillon, but 62 is awful early for running back these days. But him and maybe tight end Josiah Deguara have the only real chance of having an impact this year, I would think.
The general sense that this is a bad draft will make for an interesting training camp. There won’t be any lack of drama, either, with the A-Rod-J-Lo dynamic. Can’t wait. Whenever it is.
