If the latter scenario happens, people will be congregating outside of Lambeau Field with pitchforks looking for Ted Thompson’s head.
That said, Ian Rapoport is reporting that, 1. the Green Bay Packers may trade back again, giving up the No. 33 pick they acquired last night for more picks and, 2. that they may pick Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer.
Teams are already interested in pick No. 33, currently owned by the #Packers. Plenty of talent some thought was in the first round available
We could, of course, see the Packers trading back again to acquire more picks. Why they’d pick Kizer is beyond us.
We don’t need to tell you they have Aaron Rodgers, a quality backup in Brett Hundley and a decent developmental guy in Joe Callahan. Hundley could be traded before his rookie contract expires, but that isn’t likely to happen until this time next year.
Perhaps most likely, if you put those pieces together, is the Packers trade back so another team can take Kizer.
The Packers may still be able to get the player they’re targeting a little later in the second round. The Chargers at No. 38 and the Jets at No. 39 are teams that could actually use Kizer, the former as Philip Rivers’ heir and the latter because they have garbage at the position.
Whatever happens, it’s bound to be an interesting evening, but we’ll remind you, the Packers don’t need players, they need playmakers.
