The Green Bay Packers prioritized protecting Jordan Love in the 2024 NFL Draft. They selected three offensive linemen, including Arizona left tackle Jordan Morgan with the 25th overall pick.

Morgan is an athletic lineman and an outstanding pass protector. While the Packers need to figure out whether his skill set best suits tackle or guard in the NFL, Morgan can contribute early in his career.

The plan is for him to begin at left tackle, where Morgan played for Arizona. He could provide competition for Rasheed Walker or even slide to right tackle if the Packers want Zach Tom to play at center. Another option is for Morgan to move inside to guard, where many believe will be his best position in the NFL.

Morgan's run-blocking is still a work in progress, but there's no doubting his pass protection. According to PFF, he has allowed only three sacks and 31 pressures since the start of the 2022 season.

How much will Jordan Morgan make in rookie season with Packers?

Here's an overview of what Jordan Morgan will earn on his rookie contract with the Packers, according to Spotrac:

  • Four-year, $14.03 million deal
  • $3.51 million per year
  • $7.03 million signing bonus

Under the collective bargaining agreement, there isn't much room for negotiation on rookie contracts. Most of the deal is determined by where they are drafted. The higher you are picked, the more money you make.

As Morgan was a first-round pick, Green Bay also has the choice to exercise a fifth-year option after his third season. Doing so would tack on another year to Morgan's rookie deal, although the extension would be fully guaranteed.

Rookie contracts are mostly set in stone. The player and their agent don't have much leverage in negotiating for more. They also can't work out a new deal until after their third season. Even if Morgan becomes a first-team All-Pro in his rookie year, he will remain on this deal until at least 2027.

The total cost of the rookie contracts decreases with every pick. For example, first overall selection Caleb Williams's contract has a value of $39.49 million. Jayden Daniels, selected second, will earn $37.75 million.
