I am hoping this helps answer your question. I HAVE NEVER SAID GB SHOULD HAVE DRAFTED A WR EARLY IN THE 2020 DRAFT. I HAVE NEVER POSTED THAT DRAFTING A WR WOULD HAVE LED TO A SB.Just for the record. In the 2020 draft
I didn’t want a QB either and I’m being truthful on that.
That said, the way the board fell?
WR were selected at
No other WR was drafted in Day 1 after #25 overall and that 7 teams passed on the crop left at WR to choose a different position.
I’m about 96.8341% sure the Packers would NOT draft at WR using #30 overall or in a similar trade up there.
So, that leaves us now most likely picking WR using #62 or later (remember that the Packers LOVE them some 2nd Round WR)
In your opinion, Which WR would we have selected at #62 overall? Btw There isn’t one
Tee Higgins was someone’s very best argument at being a Bonafide SB contender? His 908 yards were likely his WR1 ceiling as he was paired with Joe Burrow. With GB he’d be WR2 at best and competing for looks with Davante Adams at WR1.
Very, very low chances Tee Higgins as WR2 puts us to a status of better than the 2020 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fast forward to our 2021 ST, it was so bad they (did) could take down an entire playoff run.
Michael Pittman? Arguable a step below Higgins (strike 2)
Shenault? (Strike 3)
Denzel Mims? (Strike 4).
I know all of the top guys were gone before GB picked.
I AM ON RECORD SAYING I HATED WHEN GB TRADED UP TO DRAFT A QB in 2020.
FTR. I also hated the Dillon and Deguara picks in rounds 2 & 3.
