Tuesday Cheese Curds: Packers weigh their options and wait for the NFL Draft

Sooner or later, they’ll have to actually pick somebody.

Sooner or later Aaron Rodgers is going to get traded. Pre-draft, post-draft, mid-draft, whenever it happens, it’s going to happen.

But whenever it does happen, the Packers are still going to have to pick some dudes in this spring’s draft. The needs of the rest of the team (somehow, impossibly) will still be there regardless of when the trade is consummated.

So who’s it going to be? The Packers aren’t exactly short on needs. Aside from their quarterback’s play, the overall strength of the roster was a big reason the Packers didn’t make the playoffs last year. There are clear holes on both sides of the ball, and they desperately need depth at a bunch of spots that aren’t immediate trouble spots.

Of course, all that means is that the Packers will take someone totally unexpected later this month because that’s how it always goes. At least it’s not going to be boring!

It’s strange to think of the Packers as a “new” playoff team, but after their Week 18 loss to the Lions, they were on the outside looking in despite being a fixture in the playoffs for most of the last decade and a half.
