Said it when he was drafted... Never understood the hype. Kid struggled in a crappy Mountain West conference. He has talent but I find it hard to believe he was worth the investment the Packers gave up.

If the packers are smart, they will keep him on the bench learning for several years before taking the reigns. It’s how they developed Rodgers. I think that has a lot to do with Rodgers success in the nfl.

Yeah, mostly true but it's hard to compare a 5th round pick to a 1st rd.
who was the 5th? im saying i believe that craig nall backed up favre, aaron rodgers first game......that rodgers was listed 3rd, i could be wrong.

Only followed the Panthers draft this year. Did hear later about the Packers taking this guy.


I guess GB liked what they saw in the workouts/tape or whatever, but he had some serious statistical degradation from his sophomore to junior year. Look at those INT's and Y/A.

CONS: Needs to improve his field vision and awareness. Often fails to recognize or completely disregards coverage rotations and it doesn’t have a great enough impact on his decision making. He throws some careless, YOLO balls that need to be reduced. While there is a lot to like about his willingness to be patient and stay in the pocket, his internal clock is often tardy. Can be aggressive vertically to fault. Has to find more consistency with timing and progressions. Has general accuracy with plenty of misfires.
Bold: that's one of those things I always think "you got it or you don't". It's why I think a lot of guys who meet the physical prototype never perform consistently at pro level.

It’s also not like the kid had a legit training camp/preseason. Everyone knows rodgers is in GB this year and next year and after that who knows. Means Love has ample time to get his shit together. Let’s at least give the kid some time before labeling him

I have to wonder if just before draft day the Packers brass took a weekend party trip to Cleveland to channel their inner Browns drafting strategy over the last several years.

They tried to pull what what's his name pulled in the movie Draft Day but fell short
