Packers: 2021 Draft picks should motivate Aaron Rodgers to stay
With concerns about Aaron Rodgers’ future with the Green Bay Packers, the 2021 NFL Draft was the perfect opportunity to add new playmakers to satisfy their quarterback.
Many reports claim that the Packers’ star quarterback Aaron Rodgers is unsatisfied. Whether those reports are true or false, one thing is certain: Green Bay does not want to lose Rodgers.
The 2021 NFL Draft turned out to be a huge success for the Packers this year. By drafting talented athletes to fill the weak positions, Green Bay should be looking forward to the upcoming season.
While all of the draft picks are valuable, there are certain ones that should stand out to Rodgers. Hopefully, the 2021 NFL Draft will motivate Rodgers to stay in Green Bay.
Packers first-round pick: CB Eric Stokes
It was crucial for Green Bay to upgrade the CB position, and they did so with the addition of Eric Stokes. Throughout his college career, Stokes has racked up tremendous accomplishments such as being named a first-team All-SEC in 2020.
Mike Griffith of Dawg Nation believes that Stokes is a “game-changer”, which is exactly what the Packers need.
Without a doubt, Stokes is a much-needed pick for the CB position. Adjusting to the professional level will come easily for him because he is a terrific athlete who will emerge as a key defensive player for the Packers.
Packers second-round pick: C Josh Myers
Since Green Bay made the questionable decision not to re-sign Corey Linsley, the center position needed to be filled. Ohio State’s Josh Myers is a terrific replacement for Linsley. Being the team captain for the Buckeyes, it wasn’t surprising to see Myers achieve big goals.
The powerhouse blocking by Myers will be very beneficial to Rodgers if he decides to stay. Myers was one of the best offensive linemen in the NCAA this past season as the Buckeyes’ quarterback Justin Fields greatly benefited from his protection. While we are disappointed to see Corey Linsley go, it is relieving that Josh Myers will be taking over at center.
Packers third-round pick: Amari Rodgers
Rodgers has needed another wide receiver to add to his arsenal of offensive weapons and should be excited about Amari Rodgers.
Rodgers’ versatility will allow him to create big plays for the Packers as he is both speedy and powerful. Many compare him to Randall Cobb because his playmaking skills are similar.
The future is very bright for Rodgers as he will shine bright for the Packers. Aaron Rodgers should be excited about this young rookie. We certainly hope that drafting Amari Rodgers will be convincing enough for Aaron Rodgers to stay in Green Bay.
While many were worried that management wouldn’t produce in this year’s NFL Draft, it actually turned out to be a huge success. Brian Gutekunst drafted several talented athletes who have a lot to offer.
Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks to ever come through Green Bay, and we do not want to see him leave the Packers anytime soon. Considering the success of the NFL Draft, hopefully Rodgers will remain a Packer for the upcoming season.
