The Green Bay Packers are going to host the 2025 NFL Draft. For a franchise that has been around for over 100 years, this is quite an honor. While many Packers fans are ecstatic over the news and what this will do for the local economy, there are some national writers or analysts from other markets that are not that thrilled. One of them is Benjamin Allbright, who infamously predicted that Aaron Rodgers would be traded to the Denver Broncos in 2021.
Not Everyone Is Thrilled that the Green Bay Packers Are Hosting the 2025 NFL Draft
Allbright started out his Twitter rant by saying that Milwaukee makes more sense for hosting the NFL Draft than Green Bay because it has better infrastructure for it. Now, while there is work that needs to be done in Green Bay to prepare for the influx of people, it is quite the take to say that a city without a professional football team should host the draft over a city that does.
This feels like a mistake.
Milwaukee I sort of get. Green Bay? https://t.co/6wFzM2RU2k

After some counterpoints from fans and Packers content creators in the comments on his Tweet, Allbright stated that he will not be attending the draft because, well, he simply does not like the city of Green Bay. And did fans ever have a field day with that!
And this guy doesn’t have the infrastructure for a normal relationship…
Get bent, dawg. https://t.co/ed1vhDJMFV

This is in reference to Allbright posting on social media all about how his wife left him on account of his cheating.

GB is able to handle 100k+ people 8 Sundays a year, it can absolutely handle NFL Draft weekend. The city has been building infrastructure specifically to hold an event like this, and Milwaukee is only an hour down the coast of Lake Michigan. Such an ill-informed tweet from Ben. https://t.co/Elzx5Mn4Qz

Attendance for the record breaking draft in KC
Day 1: 125,000
Day 2: 84,000
Day 3: 103,000
According to the City of Green Bay, each home game draws over 80,000 people with another 5,000 to the region.
I guess GB has the infrastructure to host a game but not the draft. https://t.co/IGnRLIUWWZ

Fortunately for Mr. Allbright, he will not have to be subjected to “driving around” Green Bay this year as the Packers travel to Denver in Week Seven.
