Can Green Bay Packers new successor Amari Rodgers see the future? Back in March, the 85th overall pick in the 2021 draft and the former Clemson star looked at his crystal ball and had a moment of prior knowledge.
Or maybe he has realized his preferred future.
Asked about the dream scenario by former NFL successor Brandon Marshall in 2021 at the House of Athletes at Scout Combined Shows, Rodgers said: “I’ll say a second round of packers.”
Talk about a dream come true. And Rodgers was this close to getting it right. General manager Brian Gutekunst confirmed that the team is ready to choose Rodgers or Josh Myers from Ohio in 62nd place in the second round, but Packers went first with the talented center. Soon after, Gutekunst returned his scouts on the phone, calling teams and trying to trade to pick up Rodgers, a player they obviously felt was second-round talent.
Finally, the packers found a suitor. A fourth round was chosen, but the Packers climbed seven places from 92 to 85 to put Rodgers in the third round.
He can be a dream player for Packers.
“He fills so many holes for us,”
This is a strong scout report for Rodgers. Punt return, slot receiver, widget weapon, good size, sturdy, flexible, smart. He is all these things. There is only one thing missing from Gutekunst’s assessment: Rodgers is also clearly a psychic.
Maybe the new Packers successor can give his new general manager some idea of the future of a disgruntled quarterback.
