The Green Bay Packers shocked the entire NFL in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Brian Gutekunst made an aggressive move to trade up to the No. 26 pick from No. 30 in order to select Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. That’s right, the Packers took Aaron Rodgers’ future replacement in the first round.

Love was a shocking pick for the Packers, especially with the team being just one win away from the Super Bowl last season. Many thought they would go with a wide receiver like Clemson standout Tee Higgins. Green Bay had other plans, which has drastically changed the future of the franchise.

Rodgers is 36 years old, which makes this pick even more interesting. Back when the Packers drafted Rodgers to replace Brett Favre in the future, Favre was 35 years old. Green Bay has established a bit of a pattern.

Last season with Utah State, Love struggled after losing quite a bit of his offense. He completed 61.9 percent of his pass attempts for 3,402 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. Back in 2018, however, he completed 64 percent of his passes for 3,567 yards, 32 touchdowns, and six interceptions.

All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at three burning questions for the Packers following their decision to draft Jordan Love.
