I'm not sure how much of it was Nathaniel Hackett, but when Drew Lock was coming into the NFL back in 2019, the Green Bay Packers were rumored to like him quite a bit. Obviously, we didn't see anything materialize that year for Green Bay in terms of drafting a QB, but they took a prospect with a similar makeup the next year, albeit with a higher floor in Jordan Love.

But Lock has been improving, at least from what we've seen in the preseason, since getting traded from Denver to Seattle in the Russell Wilson deal. He's currently serving as Geno Smith's backup, and I think in the fairly near future we could see Lock get another opportunity to start.

Just like with some of the other options "available" to the Packers in 2024, you might look at an option like this and wonder why Green Bay wouldn't just roll with Jordan Love for another year and live with the results. There are a few reasons I'd be in favor of a player like this coming in, including the fact that reclamation projects can sometimes work out really well for teams. A player like Lock might raise the floor of the QB room in general, and he's a relatively low-risk option.

The Packers don't need to commit to anything specifically at QB in 2024. They could kick the can to 2025. If that ends up being the case, I wouldn't mind seeing them roll with Jordan Love and Drew Lock, maybe even opening it up to competition.
