The first night of the 2020 NFL Draft was eventful. Fans got to watch Roger Goodell announce the picks from his basement. There were of course a couple surprise picks, but none more shocking than the Green Bay Packers trading up to select Utah State QB Jordan Love.
The Packers of course already have their franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers (36), and many draft analysts believed that Green Bay was going to choose a skilled player in the first round to help Rodgers and the Packers offense, not select his eventual replacement.
While covering this story on SportsCastr early Friday morning, Ray Rauth from DPN Sports Talk gives his initial reaction to the draft selection, and goes into greater detail about why this wasn’t the best selection for the Packers, and highlights why a later round quarterback like Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts would have been a better choice for Green Bay.
