The Green Bay Packers are in the middle of a possible franchise-changing off-season. The pending Aaron Rodgers trade will signify the next era in Green Bay. Jordan Love is in line to take over as Green Bay’s next long-term QB. The Packers are hoping that lightning will strike three times in a row after Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers had Hall Of Fame careers with the organization. Now with the looming loss of four-time MVP QB Aaron Rodgers, the Packers are projected to add another QB to their roster.
Green Bay Packers Projected To Draft QB Tanner McKee
Amid the seemingly endless Aaron Rodgers trade talks, the Green Bay Packers are projected to grab a college quarterback in one mock draft. Green Bay takes Stanford quarterback Tanner McKee with a fourth-round pick (No. 116 overall) in the latest mock draft by NFL.com’s Chad Reuter.
After barely seeing the field in his first college football season, McKee was Stanford’s starting quarterback for two years. McKee completed 63.2% of his passes for 5,336 yards, 28 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
Quarterbacks are selected with the first three picks of Reuter’s mock draft. Six quarterbacks in total are projected to be picked before the Packers draft McKee.
Once Rodgers is traded, the Packers will have little NFL experience in their quarterback room. Love has made one career start and attempted all of 83 passes. Danny Etling is the only other quarterback under contract with Green Bay. Etling is 28 years old with no attempts in a meaningful NFL game.
Adding a quarterback in the 2023 Draft would make a lot sense for the Packers. It has been heavily rumored over the last few months that Green Bay would add a quarterback either through free agency or the draft once Aaron Rodgers is actually traded. The back-up quarterback position hasn’t been a position that Green Bay has put a lot of resources towards over the last three decades. When their starter has gone down, the Packers don’t tend to win many games.
