2021 NFL Draft – Day One

It has finally come: Draft Day 2021 — this time in the capital of mediocrity: Cleveland, Ohio. After a grueling season that ended with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by the aging Tom Brady, putting a stop to the Packers’ 2021 Super Bowl hopes, we need to look forward to the next chapter in the team’s history and towards another draft.

Pick wizard GM Brian Gutekunst and the Packers brass(would make a great band name) will be expressing their will on the future of the team today with late round picks due to the team’s success in the previous season. As they often have, they may be looking towards the WR position for some future proofing; also needing some love will be the offensive line and a secondary with a questionable future.

List of Green Bay picks:

Round 1: No. 29
Round 2: No. 62
Round 3: No. 92
Round 4: No. 135
Round 4: No. 142 (Compensatory)
Round 5: No. 173
Round 5: No. 178 (Compensatory)
Round 6: No. 214
Round 6: No. 220 (Compensatory)

    I used to get excited about draft day…but frankly…I haven’t really followed the prospects this year.
    *
    I typically get pissed off watching them draft ..with exception of gutes first draft which excited me..and turned our to be shit outside jaire.
    *
    I will say…if they for some reason end up drafting a qb with any of their top 3 picks….I may be looking for a new team to root for.
    *
    Since I don’t really know the prospects I’m just hoping for an impact linemen on either side of the ball…someone to replace kings sorry ass…or a burner at either cb or wr.
    *
    That’s over half the positions on the field so I’m sure we’ll end up with a blocking tight end or another edge prospect with “an incredibly high ceiling” + minimal production and/or a complex injury history that could be a “steal” at the end of the first round.

    I can hear it now “this guy would have been top 5 had he not blown out his acl and only made 1 play all season prior to doing so”

      Actually it’s working just fine. Aaron Rodgers can play for the Packers or he can retire. Host Jeopardy. And attempt a come back at 40. And if he’s lucky lose another NFCC game.

            And a stat whore. Who’ll eventually retire with the same number of super bowl wins as Trent Dilfer and Joe Flacco. I couldn’t careless how many MVP awards he has in his Malibu mansion. I’m a Packer fan, I want SB wins. He doesn’t deliver. Brady does. The truth hurts, but you’ll defend him to the bitter end. Guys like you need Brian Gutekunst to blame when Aaron Rodgers comes up small in big games. So cry like a little girl and blame the evil Brian Gutekunst and Mark Murphy because Aaron Rodgers couldn’t score a TD in the 4th quarter of the NFC championship game.

            I bet you can’t wait to wear your Brett Hundley 3.0 jersey. Whoops, I meant Jordan Love. Ya know, the bona fide franchise QB who’s never taken a snap in the NFL. Has he ever even been active for a game before? Doesn’t matter, he’s gonna blow the roof off of Lambeau the second he steps on the field.

            Look Cheese, Aaron Rodgers had the whole 4th quarter down by 5 to score a TD. Not just that one drive and he couldn’t do it. If your truly the GOAT, like Rodgers told everyone on the Pat McAfee podcast he was, you a find away. He’s had 10 years and 4 NFCC games to get it done. And while I’ll agree it hasn’t all been his fault. He does have to take responsibility for some of it. You can’t blame it on the defense. They only gave up a FG in the 4th quarter. Aaron Rodgers is a great QB when he gets a big lead, pads his stats, and can coast. He’s never been a come from behind to win QB. He actually has a .477 winning percentage when trailing in the 4th quarter of games. In big games you always face adversity. And he always wilts. Let me tell you what will happen this year. We’ll make the playoffs, probably win the division, then lose again if not the NFCC game, the divisional round. Then guys like you will make excuses for Rodgers. How do I know this? Because it’s been going on for a decade now. Aaron Rodgers is Drew Brees, a stat whore. He is not, and never will be Tom Brady, the real GOAT.

            Fair enough Ferris, you girls didn’t like the Jordan Love pick. Tell me then, who was it that Brian Gutekunst should have selected at 26 last year that would have magically propelled us to SB victory? Patrick Queen perhaps? I remember thinking he reminded me of Nick Barnett. A nice player to be sure, but hardly a difference maker. As it turns out, so far, Queen isn’t that good. A WR then. Rodgers threw 48 TD’s last year. We did just fine without Tee Higgins. Look, if Gutekunst had passed on Justin Jefferson to draft Love. Or if Patrick Queen was the next Ray Lewis then I’m right there with you. Pitchfork in hand ready to tar and feather our GM. I get it, you girls are emotionally attached to Aaron Rodgers. We all are. A good GM can’t look at it emotionally. He has to prepare not only for the present but for the future as well. I know that’s a difficult concept for you to understand…..

            Tom, it is good to hear from new posters here. You may still get through the initiation phase. If you shave your head. And renounce everything purple.
            2 issues with that pick. 1st, they traded up to get him. Felt like the Bears trading up for Trushitstick. Then Gute said how Love “fell” to them. He didn’t. Rodgers fell to the Packers way back when so it is not the same. If you are going to trade up own that shit and say we want Rodgers to go. Or trade up and get Jefferson, a position of dire need in Green Bay. 2nd, they say they want to win now…that pick was not a win now pick.

            You still didn’t tell me who it was that Gutekunst should have drafted instead of Jordan Love. This is what I know. The San Francisco 49ers gave up a king’s ransom to draft Trey Lance a prospect with a similar skill set to Jordan Love. The Chicago Bears gave up a king’s ransom to draft Justin Fields also a prospect with a similar skill set to Jordan Love. Gutekunst gave up the 26th pick and an incidental 4th round pick to draft a potential franchise QB. That makes Jordan Love a value pick. In reality, there were no more blue chip prospects left at the end of round one. But it upset Aaron. And that’s made all of you Aaron Rodgers fanboys fuss and fret. Oh, Aaron is mad at us! But it’s not our fault Aaron, we love you! I couldn’t care less. As far as management, Murphy and Gutekunst are responsible for back to back 13-3 seasons, hiring MLF one of the best young coaches in the league, and drafting Alexander, Jenkins, Savage, Gary, not to mention signing Z Smith, and Amos. Yes, girls their pretty inept….

            Yep! Another Packer brain-trust apologist attempting to gaslight this new debacle that Murphy, Ted Thompson (the frugal GM) and Gutekunst got the team into. While I’m not going to go too far into your ill-founded statement’s regarding Rodgers’ ineptitude in the last game other than to POINT OUT that he did not throw three interceptions against a MUCH weaker defense like Brady did (who still won)! because it is “A TEAM SPORT”. . . I will say this; anytime that you have a HOF QB 1 and you attempt to blame him for losing the NFCCG, think about these half as talented QB 1’s that made it to the big dance (as well as Brady last year), Trent Dilfer, Joe Flacco. Then think (if you are able) about what great GM’s do for their highly prized QB 1’s; NE, KC, San Fran, when they had/have an elite QB 1, they REALIZE how rare they are and they get them the requisite defensive and offensive tools to win multiple SB’s. They don’t just ride the coattails of a HOF QB 1 off into the sunset like the last two Packer GM’s have.
            *
            Btw, I am NOT attached to Rodgers. I am a Packer fan FIRST. What Gutenkunst and Murphy have done in the last few years has been abysmal to say the least. Bad drafts, getting rid of good players while keeping mediocre ones. Getting Jimmy Graham? NEVER properly addressing the ILB position? Just look at Tampa Bay’s ILB’s! They are game changers! and they have two of them. In 20 years Green Bay has never had one that good, nor have they attempted to get one. In all of Rodgers tenure Green Bay has not provided him with a top round WR. Why? Because their scouting department can’t figure out how to draft a decent defensive player year-in and year-out with defensive busts and bench-warmers, so they have never given themselves the opportunity to do so. They have self destructed on a yearly basis with player assessment . . . That is where we should all start looking. NOT blaming one highly talented player who can only do so much on offense . . . AND NOTHING ON DEFENSE. Go back to wher you came from, you are clueless.

            Thank you MMSUCKS! I couldn’t have said it any better. But I’ll add some backup. How many times have the Packers drafted D in the 1st round? (I’ve read 9 out of ten). One would think with that much high draft capital, we’d have a very respectable D; like maybe; top 10, or top 5! Maybe have some real enforcers at all 3 levels of the D? I’ve mentioned before< GB doesn't seem to value filling obvious needs on their team. On top of that, they keep drafting the same positions on the D, and their winning percentage isn't at all good. (Think, Jackson, Clinton Dix, Randall, Jones, Goodson, Rollins, House, McMillian) They hit it good with Alexander and Savage, and are on the banana peel with K. King. However, either the scouting of D players is inept, unimportant to them, or they think offense is the only thing that wins championships and puts fans in the stands. It is flawed and has been for a long time. Last years draft is the worst I've seen in GB; and I've been watching since "68". Even in the dark decades of the 70's and 80's; there's been at least 1 or 2 drafted players starting, or at least making a good contribution. Murphy and Gute created this mess, and I don't feel one bit sorry for them. For Gute to sit in front of a camera, arrogant, and seeming like this Rodgers saga isn't anything to worry about——— shows ignorance!

            I see. It’s not Ferris’s responsibility to provide picks. Only bitch and moan about the one ones he thinks Gutekunst gets wrong even though he’s not qualified to do so. That makes absolutely no sense. Go back to just repeating your posts. Your embarrassing yourself now. Gutekunst did his job. You girls just don’t like the results. This is QB driven league. You have to draft a potential franchise QB when they become available. If you wait until you need one, you end up like the 49ers and Bears and trade away future draft classes in hopes you’ve made the right call. You draft and develop. You use FA to sign starters for now. That’s what a good GM does. And that’s what Gutekunst has done.

            Brian Gutekunst took a team that went 6-9-1. He signed 4 starters in free agency in Z Smith, Preston Smith, Adrian Amos, and Billy Turner. That’s an entire draft class. Drafted a shut down corner in Alexander, the next Nick Collins in Savage and a pro bowl C/G in Elgton Jenkins. Hired one of the best young coaches in the league in MLF. And promptly went 13-3 going to the NFCC game. That’s a remarkable achievement. It sure wasn’t all Aaron Rodgers and his 26 TD’s. Those are the facts. I’m sorry if you feel threatened by them.

            Are you referring to your grandma you live with? Either Brian Gutekunst is Matt Millen or he gets “some credit” for back to back 13-3 seasons. So which is it? By the very nature you spend too much for players in FA. It’s why Ted was reluctant to play the game. You can’t have it both ways. Be players in FA and then bitch because you paid too much. What you would like is to draft and develop and use FA only to supplement your roster. Gutekunst took over he had more holes on the roster than he had draft picks. Moving forward you wouldn’t need to spend in FA if your drafting correctly. This concept is undoubtedly over your head. Think Kirk Cousins ridiculously stupid contract that forced the Viking to release 5 starters on defense last year.

            “Gute drafted the next Nick Collins in Savage”- Lol, what planet are you from? Nothing Savage has done would predict him to be the next Nick Collins.
            .
            Sure, Matt LaFluers record is 26-6 the past two years. No way in hell does he pull that off without Aaron Rodgers. No. Way.
            .
            Jordan Love was a value pick? Tell me how using a first and fourth round pick on a gut who sits the bench the entire year is “valuable” when GB was one game from the Super Bowl the year before? He literally provided ZERO value on the field. SF drafted a similar prospect while giving up more so that justifies GB pissing away two draft picks on a sideline decoration?
            .
            All these Gute apologists act like Rodgers is just some Joe Blow who has nothing to do with this teams success and they can insert whatever version of Brett Hundley they want and win the Super Bowl. As if Rodgers isn’t the MVP of the entire fucking league.

    There are no good guys here. Failure to retain the face of the franchise would be an abysmal failure by the front office. But after spending most of his career feeling miffed about Favre’s reaction to the Packers drafting him, Rodgers has proven himself to be the bigger diva.

      Bullshit. Favre waffled back and forth about retirement for years. Rodgers has never once uttered the word retirement while winning three MVP’s in the past ten years. Meanwhile, Gute trades up to draft Love and a bunch of other bench players when GB was only one game away from the Super Bowl? Not to mention the lack of effort to improve this team over the years or the total stupidity in not retaining it’s own talent.

        I’m fairly certain Rodgers figured they were going to draft a receiver, Not unlike 10 million other people.

Are you some lackey from 1265 doing damage control for these fucktards running this football team? Because they have had AMPLE opportunities in the last few years to really help a HOF QB 1 get back to the SB. What did they do? They shit the bed with their questionable draft choices while also resigning over-valued players to large contracts. All Rodgers did was play his ass off, but he is the bigger diva . . . yeah right.

A free agent CB or ILB would have been all that was needed. Many of those plays by TB’s offense never would have happened PERIOD. Regarding the offense, we could have attempted to get a WR in free agency but we did not try very hard.

    “The reason Rodgers trade demands are coming out now is because he apparently gave the team an ultimatum. According to former ESPN anchor Trey Wingo, the Packers told Rodgers they would trade him this offseason and when they changed their mind, the QB became angry. At some point over the past week, Rodgers told the team that they would have to trade him because he had no plans to play for them ever again. The Packers had a chance to trade Rodgers in late January, but they rebuffed the Rams after Los Angeles called to see if the reigning MVP was available. After getting turned down by the Packers, the Rams eventually made a deal with the Lions and traded Jared Goff and a few picks to Detroit for Matthew Stafford”

    The packers reddit masses are coping by saying “they are just disagreeing about terms of his contract extension”…..
    **

    Here’s the reality…if there was a genuine concern to extend his contract the packers would have done it before free agency…and thus had tons of money to play the market. They would have also extended adams. Commit to Rodgers and he will commit to them building a better team (in theory)

    ****

    The reality is…packers wanted him to take a team friendly restructure..without committing to him moving forward…he saw the pattern and history of questionable decision making and had no trust in the front office and declined their overture. This is the same exact reason Brady left new England in the end…which btw…worked out very well for him.

    **?*

    After realizing Aaron wouldn’t come around the packers…by some reports…agreed to trade him. However that doesn’t really matter…as it makes no sense foe them to trade him prior to June 1 if I understand the cap implications correctly. The timing of this request is what matters as Rodgers knows all eyes are on the nfl and this is legitimately thr best day of the year to get moved to another team.

    ****

    I realize negotiations can sometimes get ugly…but I truly genuinely thing there is at least a 50% chance this is the last we’ve seen Rodgers suit up for the packers. Sure they can mend fences…but I think at most it is going to be public knowledge headed in to the season that it is the Rodgers green Bay farewell tour.

    ****

    Rodgers certainly has an ego…but for all he’s done to carry this team he has earned the right to finish his career where he wants…with a front office that doesn’t shit away his best chance at a title in a decade via drafting 3 non contributors with their first 3 picks. I firmly believe that Rodgers gave bare minimum effort his last year with Mccarthy…and I wouldn’t be surprised if he reverts back to that this season as well.

    If it takes firing Murphy to fix this the board better get off their asses and do it.

    I’ll also say i don’t think there is a 50/50 chance he changes his mind. i’d go 90/10
    This news is pretty heavy. Rodgers isn’t the type to come out and change his mind in a couple days

    I’ll agree the Packers may have offered an extension, but it might have been weak.

    I don’t think this is just about Jordon Love, i think it’s the cumulative total of issues going back to how Jordy was done.
    Firing his QB coach, not wanting him to have a voice, (players play, managers manage).

    The Packers KNEW those things that are important to him and annoyed him and they kept doing them anyway, IMO..on purpose

    When Gute made a decision that some draft picks were best suited for the future over the present.
    That may have been the moment of precipice.
    They kept Rodgers out of the loop.
    Knowing that he’d be pissed, and made a conscious decision to do it anyway.
    They didn’t care, they had an agenda, and Rodgers was smart enough to figure that out.

      But it’s not 2008 all over again…there was Supreme confidence in the organization that Rodgers was a potential super star qb…even watching him in limited action you could see he had something special on the ball coming out of his hand + was very athletic. Not to mention there weren’t rules designed to prolong a qbs durability and career…if Rodgers played under Favre rules him Brady and big Ben would already be out of the league.

      ***

      In 2021 we have a qb who hasn’t even played a preseason game waiting in the wings…a qb who couldn’t even make the game day roster. We also have a decade of mark Murphy management and a front office that is still investing all resources defensive backs. The 2008 change had a promising future…personally I was all for installing Rodgers as the qb….but this time? It’s going to be a disaster…if love was showing anything Rodgers would already be gone. The window to maximize success is during the rookie qb window.

    The Packers plan things years out, unlike many NFL teams. I’m sure they were thinking a couple years ago that Rodgers was declining. They gave him a very cap unfriendly contract thinking he would continue to be in decline and by 2021 they’d redo his contract or trade him. Rodgers has BY FAR the worst cap hit of any player in the NFL, one that costs the Packers 2 star players. The Packers prepared for his possible departure by drafting his replacement. The Packers plan things out over years. Rodgers I’m sure sensed this and decided to be a good soldier for a year or two, and see how things played out, but the Packers never committed to him. Most NFL teams don’t with an older QB. Rodgers great play last year was nothing more than audition for other teams as he decided to leave after the 2020 draft. He hasn’t commented yet about the leak, so I’m sure it’s true. Now the Packers again drafted on defense which solidifies his decision. We will shortly hear from him how he is not reporting to camp and is demanding a trade. And the Packers will only get squat for him.

      I think the packers will still get a kings ransom for him. Jalen Ramsey was a malcontent and the jaguars got 2 first round picks for him. Supreme talent like Rodgers won’t see their value tank by a public trade demand…in fact…it will have the opposite effect of creating a bidding war. That’s really the only silver lining. However…do we really trust this front offense to properly utilize any assets in a Rodgers trade? Short of extraordinary circumstances we aren’t gonna see anything change on this front prior to June anyway.

            This is 98% likely true. Miracles don’t happen three times, and with both Favre and Rodgers, an experienced GM that had been around the league was pulling the strings. It was a good 28 year run, even if the Pack only got 2 Super Bowls. Marino never won a Super Bowl and I think he was a better QB than either Favre or Rodgers.

    Yeah, I think we can probably predict that some sports writers in some other city are now going to have to start writing stories about how Aaron Rodgers has to have a little time to start “building trust” with an entirely new crop of receivers. It was great while it lasted and yes, he pretty much carried the offensive side of this team for a decade. Ups and downs, sure, but the top brass did not serve him well in the end. Would it have killed them to draft a blue chip WR in the first or second round at anytime in the last 4-5 years? Would it have killed them to consult “the franchise” on what he thought the needs of the franchise were on the field?

    Everyone knows by now that Rodgers has a chip on his shoulder bigger than the huge boulder that Sisyphus has to roll up hill for eternity. Most times he embraces that “chip” and channels it for motivation. I’ll show you. Well, now he’s showing them now.

    This whole last year you only seen small elements of being a bit miffed at the Love pick. Heck, you may have thought he might have just been over it. He was about as far from over it as any one dude could be. Any fight, any battle, a person may have with another has already been played out and rehearsed in their own mind. When you think about your own personal life, a rift with a supervisor, significant other, a child, or almost anyone – you’ve ran it over in your head before it happened. Imagine the last year of things he went over in his head while thinking about pulling this one on the gang at 1265. Focused on the mission of winning and playing lights out, focused on Jeopardy, focused on the new gal, and focused on the big FY. Like a pressure cooker that only let out a few subtle whiffs of steam like on the McAfee show. Getting that MVP was icing on the cake.

    He played it coy, they thought they might be out of the woods, they let Boyle go, wait for it, wait for it…. Now, you’re down to just Jordan Love and the timing couldn’t be better to spring the news.

    This is not 2008 all over again. This might be the 70s and 80s all over again (I’m old enough to remember that). It could be, but we can only hope it won’t be. Love could maybe be a very good QB, we can hope. None of this mess was his fault and I kinda feel for the young man. He’s gonna be eating a sh!t sandwich without much bread or condiments for a while. I hope he actually gets some support to succeed if he plays well enough. That’s going to be tough because the comparisons will always be there and we’ve been spoiled going on three decades! Besides his skill sets, he’ll need some very thick skin and loads of maturity.

    If Rodgers is indeed on his way out, or gone, then I hope he gets another ring somewhere else. I hope he finds the organization and ownership that realizes what they have, build around it, and really truly go for it like Tampa Bay did with Brady. This organization is top down just plain stupid and has been for a long time.

      Good post, Mitch. If Rodgers is indeed gone, it makes you wonder how much other players would want to stick around after all of this. After seeing how inept the front office is. It sure wont help any.
      .
      Gute’s sales pitch to free agents used to be “you should take a pay cut to come play with Aaron Rodgers.” Now, not only is he not gonna have that sales pitch, but you have to question are some players going to be weary about coming here at all.
      .
      Remember when Murphy said that there were communication silos in the building that he didn’t know about and he was going to fix them? Didn’t Gute just say this whole situation with Rodgers was about communication? Maybe it’s about time Murphy hits the road.
