2020 NFL Draft: Grading the draft class from all 32 teams
The Green Bay Packers were one game away from the Super Bowl, but were exposed against the 49ers for the second time in the season.
The upgrades were very clear. Some wide receiver help behind Davante Adams and urgent help with the run defense.

The Packers taking Jordan Love may be one of the worst picks I have ever seen. I mean it’s amazing to think that they’ve done this when they had so many options at receiver as well as Patrick Queen at linebacker to help them make the Super Bowl.
I mean, wow. This was a terrible pick. The people on TV were comparing this to when Aaron Rodgers himself got drafted, but the difference was that Rodgers was considered a No. 1 overall prospect who just happened to fall. Love was never that good. He should never have been considered before Round 3 but got drafted because of the position he played and not how he played the position. And that isn’t even factoring in they traded up!
They then ignored the two biggest needs they had entirely, with the exception of the Kamal Martin pick, and in the process confused everybody.
Love has to become the new Rodgers for this draft class to be seen as good in the future. They’ve actually regressed and acted like they’re rebuilding. This still defies belief.
