After months of waiting and wild speculation, we finally have gotten started with possibly the single most exciting event on the NFL calendar: the draft.
The games are why we watch of course, and the Super Bowl is the ultimate goal for every team each year, but when it comes to pure intrigue, nothing beats this time of year. We get to see the present and future of the teams we love officially entering the league, filling in rosters and boistering the hopes of every fan out there that this could be the year their team makes the next step.
For us Packers fans, this time is even more important than for most. Once the season ends, we have long become accustomed to seeing little-to-no movement for months since the team routinely avoids free agency like the plague, valuing the cheap contracts that come with the draft’s yearly influx of youth.
I’ll be talking more about the players the team has actually selected once the draft officially ends, but for now we still have an entire day consisting of four rounds chock full of potential key contributors and depth pieces to keep the roster brimming with possibilities.
There are still a ton of guys here who could bring something to the team in the upcoming season (and hopefully beyond), so I want to take a look now at who from the remaining players the Packers should give some consideration to taking in the next few rounds.
