The Inexperienced Bay Packers 2020 draft didn’t yield instant outcomes, however they’d absolutely take again this choose greater than another.
Quite than draft somebody from a loaded draft class at extensive receiver in 2020, the Inexperienced Bay Packers traded as much as take quarterback Jordan Love within the first spherical. Subsequent draft picks weren’t any higher when it comes to instant assist, as they reached the NFC Championship Sport and misplaced a sport wanting the Tremendous Bowl for a second straight 12 months.
In a win-now window whereas Aaron Rodgers continues to be the quarterback, the Packers ought to enter this 12 months’s draft with some sense of urgency so as to add individuals who will help immediately. Whether or not that occurs or not will likely be evaluated within the days after.
Love and second-round choose working again AJ Dillon will bump up one spot on the depth chart this 12 months, after not taking part in in any respect and having one excellent sport respectively as rookies final 12 months. With a case for each because the 2020 draft choose the Packers may wish to take again, there’s one which’s even worse.
The Packers would take again this 2020 draft choose above another
Within the third spherical of final 12 months’s draft, with the 94th total choose, the Packers took Cincinnati tight finish/h-back Josiah Deguara. That felt like an enormous attain, and since he was thought to be Day 3 choose it truly was a attain. The extensive receivers who had been nonetheless on the board (Gabriel Davis, Tyler Johnson, Darnell Mooney, and so on.) makes it look even worse.
Deguara performed in two video games final 12 months, with an ankle damage costing him time after which a torn ACL ending his season in October. He completed with one catch for 12 yards on two targets, all in Week 1.
To a point, Deguara deserves an injury-related mulligan for his rookie marketing campaign. However he’s nonetheless blocked on the depth chart by Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis, so the Packers may not get a lot from him in 2021 both.
