Packers add C Josh Myers with 62nd pick

The Packers have come under fire for not picking players who would help Aaron Rodgers in recent years, but they used their second-round pick on a player who could provide protection for Rodgers in 2021.

Assuming he remains with the team, of course.

Packers defensive lineman and Michigan alum Rashan Gary announced that the team took former Ohio State center Josh Myers with the 62nd overall pick of the draft. Gary snuck in a “Go Blue” after the selection, but the Cleveland crowd didn’t have much interest in hearing about the school up north.

Myers will be in the mix to fill the hole left by another Ohio State product. Corey Linsley signed with the Chargers as a free agent and his replacement will be a big part of the plan to keep Aaron Rodgers or Jordan Love upright during the 2021 season.

  1. Not sure I understand that building a team good enough to win 13 games each of the last two seasons and have the number one offense in the league doesn’t help Aaron Rodgers. Wish someone could explain how you improve on number one.

  2. “Nothing special. Adequate.” How about you wait and see what kind of player he turns out to be? Linsley was a “Nothing special. Adequate” 5th rounder.

  3. Boring is good sometimes. I like the pick. Wonder if it means they see less in Jake Hanson.

  4. I’m surprised they didn’t go D again. The coach showed last year that he’d rather put the game on his D than leave it in the OBs hands.
