If you were starting an expansion team, which three 2023 draft picks would you pluck from the Packers’ roster?

Going into the playoffs, one of the hottest narratives in the NFL is that the Green Bay Packers have seemingly done it again. They’ve figured out a smooth landing at the quarterback position, something that rarely happens in the league.

In this week’s episode, Acme Packing Company’s Justis Mosqueda and Pack-A-Day Podcast’s Andy Herman discuss whether or not this streak of developed quarterbacks should be considered independent events. Sure, it’s easy for a Chicago Bears fan to ask, “What are the odds,” but is this really left up to chance when the Packers have proven that they’ve been able to do this twice now?

Mosqueda and Herman also cover the Packers’ recent win over the Bears and preview the upcoming wildcard matchup between Green Bay and the Dallas Cowboys.

Here’s a fun question they attempted to answer, too: If you were starting an expansion team, which three 2023 draft picks would you pluck from the Packers’ roster? If you need a refresher, here are the picks the team made in April:

  • OLB Lukas Van Ness
  • TE Luke Musgrave
  • WR Jayden Reed
  • TE Tucker Kraft
  • DE Colby Wooden
  • QB Sean Clifford
  • WR Dontayvion Wicks
  • DE Karl Brooks
  • K Anders Carlson
  • CB Carrington Valentine
  • RB Lew Nichols III (no longer on the team)
  • S Anthony Johnson Jr.
  • WR Grant DuBose

Both Mosqueda and Herman went with Reed, Kraft and Wicks. If You have a differing opinion here, drop your three selections in the comment section down below with your reasoning.
