2 mistakes by the Green Bay Packers in 2021 NFL Draft

All that glitters is not Green and Gold, and the Green Bay Packers proved it with a couple of key blunders during the 2021 NFL draft.To buy more Packers Men Elite with cheap price, you can visit packernfl.com official website.

Somehow, at 37 years old, Aaron Rodgers not only put together one of the best quarterback seasons of his career in 2020—but in NFL history. His 4,299 yards (seventh), 48 passing touchdowns (first, career-best), five total interceptions (T-first) and 84.4 QBR (first, career-best) pushed the Packers to another NFC North championship and into Super Bowl contention, and his completion percentage (70.7), sacks taken (20) and fumbles lost (one) were all career-best marks.

Father Time has not yet called in his debts to the former University of California star and junior-college phenom, and if Rodgers is anything like recent 40-year-old quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning, he’s still got plenty of time left to throw for another 12,000-plus yards, 120-plus touchdowns and maybe hoist another MVP—or, egad!, Lombardi—trophy.When news first broke of Rodgers’ apparent rift with the Packers front office (just before the 2021 NFL Draft), and how things were irreparable, the prudent move for Green Bay brass would’ve been to put out the “HELP WANTED” ads and start shopping their star.

Sure, an NFL MVP has never been traded in the following season, but unspoken rules were made to be broken. The San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams reportedly did their due diligence on a potential acquisition, but they were quickly rebuffed and tossed carelessly aside for even having such notions. And maybe everything there works out for the best, with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance setting up shop in the Bay, and the Matthew Stafford/Jared Goff flip-flop generating sparks for both the Rams and the Detroit Lions.

Imagine a Packers staff with a handful of draft picks (or veteran stars) from either the Rams or the 49ers (or, literally, almost any other team in the league), and the permutations are limitless. Limitless. Is Rodgers, with probably less than five years remaining in his prime, worth a Herschel Walker-like haul of eight draft picks—like the Minnesota Vikings believed in 1989? Maybe not. But that’s not the worst price point.

Rodgers still has three years remaining on a four-year, $134 million deal and isn’t set to become an unrestricted free agent until 2024, when he’d presumably retire and probably become a semi-permanent host for “Jeopardy!” and happily live out his days beyond the frozen tundra of Wisconsin.

It’s the kind of trade that wouldn’t have just rattled the NFL to its core, but it would’ve shifted the 2021 Draft coverage away from the negativity of the situation and could’ve positioned the Packers for the next five-plus years … and maybe longer.
