After an entire off-season of speculating that the Green Bay Packers would take a wide receiver in the first round, with the 22nd pic they took a linebacker. Quay Walker will bring much-needed run defense to the Packers’ defense. Aaron Rodgers was on the Pat McAfee show with his reaction:
Aaron Rodgers tells Pat McAfee that Quay Walker works out at the same place he does. Doesn't know a lot about him but people rave about his athletic ability. Excited for him and Campbell.

Aaron Rodgers also states that he knew the direction of the Packers first round intentions:
Aaron Rodgers reacts live on @PatMcAfeeShow to the Packers' Devonte Wyatt pick, said he was in communication with people in the building tonight so he knew they really liked Wyatt. Rodgers also referenced value of receivers in second- and third round that he's played with.

Quay Walker in jubilated disbelief when informed #Packers drafted Georgia teammate Devonte Wyatt with the 28th pick: "You say we picked Devonte Wyatt? Noooo. Oh man, that's crazy. It's a reunion! Dang, that's crazy. I'm probably going to cry again."

For the most part it seems as though QB1 and the General Manager were on the same page for tonight’s draft picks. That is very promising for their relationship going forward and their intentions for tomorrow night’s second and third round.
