Packers draft picks they will regret: QB Sean Clifford

Sean Clifford may become a quality backup quarterback in the NFL, and we absolutely hope he does. The reason the Packers may regret this pick is less about whether Clifford is a talented player, and more about where they drafted him. There's a chance Clifford would've still been there later in the draft, but it seemed the run on quarterbacks caused the Packers to take him in the fifth round.

It meant Green Bay missed out on the opportunity to draft other talented prospects on Day 3, like Northwestern running back Evan Hull, Clemson offensive lineman Jordan McFadden, and Texas A&M safety Antonio Johnson.

It's also not like there weren't other talented quarterbacks to target on Day 3. Even if Sean Clifford was picked by another team, there were other options. BYU's Jaren Hall went later in the round to the Minnesota Vikings and Stanford's Tanner McKee went to the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round.

And if the Packers missed out on their top quarterback targets in the draft, they could've signed a veteran to back up Jordan Love.

Taking Clifford in the fifth round felt like a reach, and one that cost the Packers an opportunity to draft other good players on the final day of the draft.
