The Green Bay Packers are finally finding their offensive stride, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers has managed to connect with the system first-year head coach Matt LaFleur implemented after taking over the job this season.
Now, the Packers’ primary objective should be surrounding Rodgers with as much offensive talent as possible while their Super Bowl window reopens.
A wide receiver would be nice. But finding a playmaking tight end would be just as worthwhile. Especially considering the veteran, Jimmy Graham, is starting to wind down his career and has never quite reached the kind of desired impact with Green Bay.
Instead, the Packers get younger and more athletic with Purdue’s Brycen Hopkins, who is likely the first tight end taken off the boards in 2020.
Hopkins is a fluid route runner, who has excellent speed and can line up anywhere on the field.
Those are the kinds of mismatch playmakers LaFleur would love to have in his offense.
