As the stretch run of the 2023 season closes in, the Green Bay Packers find themselves still in the hunt for a postseason berth. Joining the majority of the NFL, Green Bay is still in it due to a league-wide parity that we've seen over the last few weeks.
Over the second half of the season, quarterback Jordan Love has certainly improved. But, has he done enough to warrant the Packers investing in him beyond this or next season? That is the major question. He ranks 12th in passing yards but is still near the bottom in completion percentage.
For a franchise so used to excellent play at quarterback, the Packers might not be fully committed to Love, going forward. What if, just what if, Green Bay opted to go a different direction? Let's say they offer Love, plus a haul, to move up and reset the quarterback clock?
One franchise that might make sense is the Washington Commanders, who will definitely have a new coaching staff next season. With Sam Howell performing better than some thought he would, he'd still benefit from some competition. How about we play matchmaker, giving Washington said competition?
In this 2024 NFL mock draft, the Packers send Jordan Love to the Commanders.
Now, Washington has the ability to get a healthy competition going in addition to netting a whole lot of draft capital. Meanwhile, the Packers move up and select their quarterback of the future.
