Pick acquired from New York Jets
The Packers will use the entire season to evaluate Jordan Love, but they have yet to make any long-term commitment. Green Bay didn't pick up his fifth-year option, instead signing him to a team-friendly one-year extension in the offseason.
Green Bay will give Love every chance to succeed. They traded up for him in 2020 and spent three years developing him. But if he doesn't show significant improvements this season, the Packers could consider drafting another quarterback to provide competition.
Enter Colorado's Shedeur Sanders.
The son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, Shedeur is having an outstanding first season for Colorado. In seven games, Sanders has completed 72.3 percent of his passes for 2,420 yards, 21 touchdowns, and three interceptions.
"What Sanders and his dad have done to revitalize that Colorado program is beyond comprehension -- and it's been incredibly fun to watch," writes Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports. "The biggest takeaway for me is this: The bigger the moment, the better Sanders plays."
Sanders is quickly rising up draft boards after putting in some incredible performances this season.
The Packers hope Jordan Love is their long-term answer, but they may consider drafting a quarterback if things don't improve. Sanders has star potential in the NFL.
