The Green Bay Packers are focusing on the future of their franchise. That was evident this past off-season when the Packers moved on from numerous veterans. The Packers will continue to build their offense around Jordan Love just like they have over the last two NFL drafts.
However, this time they may add someone to keep him upright for the foreseeable future.
The Green Bay Packers Pegged To Add Massive 2-Time Champion To Protect Jordan Love
The NFL Staff at Bleacher Report highlighted the Packers adding OL Amarius Mims in the 2024 NFL Draft:
Unless the Packers trade up, Mims might be their best option for replacing Bakhtiari, as the Georgia product ranks as the fourth offensive tackle and 28th player overall on B/R’s NFL draft big board. He’d have to make the switch from right to left tackle, or Zack Tom could flip sides of the center as Tom did protect the blind side in college.
“Mims is a towering figure with a rocked-up build, big hands and very good arm length. He is an easy, smooth mover with fluid redirect skills, range and body control,” B/R’s offensive line scout Brandon Thorn wrote in the former Bulldog’s scouting report.
“Mims is a raw, unrefined run-blocker who uses his big body and length to press and shield defenders away from the ball on down blocks, showing very good grip strength to latch and keep opponents at his fingertips once inside their frame. He is also an asset on the move on screens and as a lead blocker with very good quickness to line up and blot out second-level threats.
“… Mims’ outstanding physical tools shine in pass protection, where he glides out of his stance into his 45-degree and vertical sets. He shows plenty of range to protect the edge on an island, with the redirect skills and body control to mirror through the top of the quarterback’s drop.”
The Packers Need To Think About A Left Tackle For The Future
In Jordan Love, the Packers appear to have found their next franchise quarterback. Additionally, he appears to have some pretty talented wide receivers around him. It is now up to the organization tois adequately protected.
In Week One, Bakhtiari proved that he is still one of the best left tackles in the NFL. It has proven difficult for Rasheed Walker, Yosh Nijman, or anyone else to secure Bakhtiari’s permanently.
Bakhtiari has expressed his desire to return to the team next season. While that would be huge for the Packers, Bakhtiari is 32 (will be 33 at the start of next season). With the team focusing on the future, it would be surprising to see them commit to Bakhtiari much after 2024. That is where Mims could come in.
