Creed Humphrey over Josh Myers

Following the departure of first-team All-Pro Corey Linsley in free agency in 2021, the Packers had a need at center. Replacing Linsley was never going to be an easy task, but the Packers found themselves in the perfect position to draft a center in the second round.

They had multiple options, including Oklahoma's Creed Humphrey.

The Packers went for Ohio State's Josh Myers 62nd overall, with the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Humphrey only one pick later. The moment Kansas City made that choice, it was clear that comparisons would be made between the two starters for years to come.

Myers has made an inconsistent start to his Packers career. He has been a solid starter, but there is a lot of room for improvement.

Humphrey, meanwhile, has been outstanding for the Chiefs. According to ESPN, he led all centers in pass block win rate last season, and ranked second at the position in run block win rate. Humphrey was also voted to the Pro Bowl and named a second-team All-Pro. He is already one of the best centers in the NFL.

It's easy in hindsight, but two years after the 2021 NFL Draft, the Packers probably regret drafting Josh Myers and Amari Rodgers over Creed Humphrey and Amon-Ra St. Brown.
