Grading the Packers’ roster following the offseason.
Now that the draft and the bulk of free agency is past us, let’s take a look at each position group for the Green Bay Packers heading into the 2020 season.
Barring any new deals leading up to training camp, which is still a possibility, the Packers will be heading into the season with this current squad.
There have been a few key additions and a couple of big departures as well. Let’s break down each position group and grade it going into the season.
Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love, Tim Boyle
This was the position group no one thought would change but ended up becoming the focus of the offseason. The Packers drafted Jordan Love in the first round, a move that made national headlines for weeks. Many thought Aaron Rodgers would be upset and possibly request a trade, but Rodgers has since calmed everyone’s nerves by saying he was excited to work with Love. Sorry, national media, doesn’t look like a repeat of the Favre-Rodgers saga back in 2008.
Meanwhile, Love is raw, but has a ton of potential and could continue the Packers’ tradition of outstanding quarterback play since the start of the Brett Favre era. Now, I’m not saying he will be as good as either, but I think he has the potential of becoming a very good quarterback. Of course, it doesn’t hurt having the opportunity to sit behind and learn from one of the best to ever do it, either.
Although Rodgers isn’t the same quarterback he was in his prime, he is still playing at a high level. It doesn’t seem like it, but that’s because we are so used to seeing him play at such a ridiculous level. Rodgers is still a top-10 quarterback in the league. Add in Love as a backup and the heir apparent, the Packers still have one of the better quarterback rooms in the league.
