The Green Bay Packers are one of the few teams in the NFL that can say they have an elite starting quarterback in Aaron Rodgers. Despite that fact, they have been thought of by some as a team that could potentially draft a quarterback.

A recent report from Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller added fuel to the proverbial fire regarding the idea of the Packers selecting a quarterback. He mentioned that a ‘very well-connected front office member from another team’ has heard Green Bay ‘will consider a quarterback in the first two rounds.’

To put it into perspective, it was recently reported that the Packers were one of the teams that have been doing their due diligence on Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. The level of interest isn’t exactly known, but they did at least contact him over video chat.

There is added belief in the odds of the Packers potentially drafting a quarterback from some because of their history. As many people know, Rodgers fell in the 2005 NFL Draft further than originally thought and Green Bay selected him with the No. 24 pick despite having Brett Favre.

With that being said, there are three reasons the Packers should look to avoid drafting a quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft.
