Packers 2023 three-round mock draft post-Super Bowl
Following the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory on Sunday, the NFL offseason is now officially underway. And it’s a significant one for the Green Bay Packers.
The million-dollar question is whether Aaron Rodgers will be back, a familiar offseason storyline in Green Bay.
In this three-round post-Super Bowl mock draft, we’re going to look at the possibility of the four-time MVP playing elsewhere.
Packers 2023 three-round mock draft: Aaron Rodgers trade
A trade to the New York Jets would make sense. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported on Sunday that New York has “inquired about Aaron Rodgers’ availability”.
Let’s give the Jets what they want. They get the veteran quarterback they need to help contend in the AFC next season, while the Packers land two premium picks in 2023.
New York hopes the arrival of Rodgers will help end the team’s 12-year playoff drought, while Green Bay aims to build around Jordan Love, with the extra draft picks to do so.
Matthew Stafford’s trade from the Detroit Lions to the Los Angeles Rams was a win-win. Stafford and the Rams won a Super Bowl, while the move has helped the Lions rebuild, and they should compete for the NFC North title in 2023.
Maybe a Rodgers trade to New York would have a similar outcome.
