All indicators appear to be pointing to the Inexperienced Bay Packers shifting on from Aaron Rodgers. Nothing is definite, however a commerce to the New York Jets now seems to be in play.
Sam Monson and Mike Renner explored that risk of their latest mock draft for Pro Football Focus.
Within the mock, the Packers maintain each the thirteenth and fifteenth picks within the first spherical, with the previous coming by way of the New York Jets.
Inexperienced Bay then selects Ohio State large receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Utah tight finish Dalton Kincaid.
In Smith-Njigba, the Packers can be getting among the finest large receivers within the class. A participant completely suited to lining up within the slot and making a bunch of catches every recreation. He’s precisely what the Packers want offensively.
You understand what else they want?
A game-changing tight finish. That might be very true if Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis don’t re-sign this offseason.
That’s the place Dalton Kincaid is available in.
It’s a very sturdy tight finish class this yr, however you gained’t discover a higher pass-catcher than Kincaid, who made 16 landing receptions in his remaining two seasons at Utah.
Speak about surrounding Jordan Love with receiving expertise. And presumably doing a greater job of it than within the remaining few seasons of Aaron Rodgers’ time in Inexperienced Bay, however that’s one other level altogether.
Inexperienced Bay would have a younger group of Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, and Dalton Kincaid. This might grow to be the league’s finest receiving corps earlier than lengthy.
Add in a few reasonably priced veterans in free company, or presumably re-sign Allen Lazard, and the Packers can be nicely set at large receiver and tight finish.
If the Packers land a first-rounder from the Jets then draft Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Dalton Kincaid, think about it a house run for Inexperienced Bay.
