It’s seemed like a mission to get to this point yet here we finally are. The final pick in the draft, a pick that belongs to the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers will be a team to watch this offseason with the uncertainty surrounding their roster. In 2022 the team could either be coming in with Aaron Rodgers and Devante Adams or with Jordan love starting at the helm.
The team will have questions to answer, but right now they look like Super Bowl favorites and Rodgers looks as though he could repeat as NFL MVP. Therefore this pick reflects the current team assuming Rodgers and Adams return, and not one with Love at the helm.
With that in mind, the team would likely look at its defense. After the failed experiment that was Jaylon Smith, the team could add an impact linebacker at 32. Georgia’s Nakobe Dean has been a major part of the Bulldog’s sensational defense.
Dean would give the Packers a game-changer at the linebacker position and fill its current biggest hole, Allen Lazard has stepped up as the team’s wideout two.
The Packers should be considered the NFL Super Bowl favorite right now, but the many question marks surrounding the upcoming offseason should scare Packers fans.
