The Green Bay Packers are heading into the upcoming offseason with some questions about the future of the franchise. Aaron Rodgers isn’t getting any younger and he received a ton of criticism in 2019 due to his inconsistencies. Now, it appears the Packers could be considering bringing in a young quarterback who could take over for Rodgers one day.
According to a report from Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers are open to taking a quarterback with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Brian Gutekunst would be wise to consider a quarterback if there is one there that he loves. There were reports during the 2019 NFL Draft that the Packers were one of the teams interested in drafting Drew Lock. The Denver Broncos ended up taking him instead.
In this draft class, there are very few quarterbacks who could fall down to the No. 30 range. Only two would make sense, with those prospects being Jordan Love and Jacob Eason.
Green Bay needs to bring in a young quarterback to learn and grow behind Rodgers. The Packers utilized that strategy with Rodgers himself, sitting him behind Brett Favre for a few years. Preparing for the future is never a bad idea.
Expect to hear quite a few more rumors about the Packers and their plans heading into free agency and the draft. It will be an interesting offseason to keep an eye on the team as they try to plan for the future and take the next step into the Super Bowl.
