Why should the Bucs feel the need to jump the Packers?
If you have been keeping up with my draft coverage, you will know exactly why the Green Bay Packers feel like the real last stop of Jordan Love in the 2020 NFL Draft.
But if you haven’t been keeping up with me, don’t worry I will catch you up quickly.
The Packers desire for a QB that they don’t have to move up for revolves around this quote from Matt Miller:
"Could Green Bay Packers draft a quarterback in Round 1? Yes, but it isn’t seen as a major need headed into the draft. Instead, this would be a perfect-world scenario, like when Aaron Rodgers fell into their laps in 2005. Rodgers wasn’t a dire need, but the team was starting to think about life after Brett Favre or at least developing a quality backup behind him. It stands to reason that the Packers will take a few swings of the bat to find their successor to Rodgers, just like when they added Brian Brohm and Matt Flynn back in 2008."
So if your team wants a quarterback then you better be willing to move up and get ahead of the Green Bay Packers who feel ready to take a QB to develop unless there is just no one else on the board with that pick.
With Jordan Love’s stock quietly falling, it feels more and more likely that he will be with a team that moves up into the 1st round to grab him instead of risking taking him with their first pick.
So what is the fallout here? To do that, we need to go through the two potential trades that I could see happening between the Titans and the Tampa Bay Bucs. Once we find a fair price we can figure out who the Titans, Bucs and Packers could end up with through Day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft.
