2020 NFL draft’s biggest loser: Aaron Rodgers
The Green Bay Packers were one game away from the Super Bowl last year, one. You would think that the team would head into the draft trying to close the gap between them and the reigning NFC champion San Francisco 49ers. Instead, it looks more like they are trying to catch the Jacksonville Jaguars. Are they tanking for Penei Sewell? Because that is what it seems like.
Imagine being Aaron Rodgers right now. All you hear leading up to the draft is that this is the deepest wide receiver class in YEARS, which is great because your team needs several.
Then you have to sit and watch as your team drafts your replacement, reaches for a goal-line third-string running back in the second round, drafts a fullback in the third round, and doesn’t draft a single receiver, NOT ONE.
The Packers really signed Devin Funchess and thought that was good enough for a Rodgers-led offense. Remember the days when the worst receiver on their depth chart was James Jones?
The NFC is pretty easily the tougher of the two conferences in the league and Rodgers had to sit by as the Saints, 49ers, Buccaneers, Vikings, Eagles, and even the Cowboys all improved. Davante Adams and Rodgers deserve better.
