Why Purdue tight end Brycen Hopkins and the Packers would be a great fit

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had his fair share of solid weaponry surrounding him throughout his career. From Pro Bowl wideouts like Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings and Randall Cobb, to more recent standouts like DaVante Adams, Rodgers has always had help around him.

But, for the abundance of stellar receivers he’s had at his disposal, Rodgers has never really had a true difference maker at the tight end position.

Green Bay’s front office tried to change this last offseason when they brought in former All-Pro Jimmy Graham, but he was a shell of his former self. Graham posted some of the worst numbers of his career, including the least amount of receptions since his rookie campaign.

With Graham on a downward trajectory, Green Bay would be wise to look for his replacement through the draft, where there are a handful of solid tight end prospects.

Including Purdue’s Brycen Hopkins, a 6-foot-4 target who could certainly be a huge play maker in Matt LaFleur’s offense next season.
