The Packers picked up Tulane QB Michael Pratt at pick 245 in the 7th round of the 2024 NFL Draft. While quick on his feet, his weaker arm strength may lower his ceiling. However, Jordan being firmly in place as starter will allow him to comfortably develop with the Packers.

Team Fit For the Packers

I’ve seen comparisons to Carson Wentz and Gardner Minshew by some covering the draft. He is light on his feet and has a great knack for altering the touch on his passes. Pratt comes with a lot of experience and studying behind Jordan will likely help with consistency and progression issues he’s had in the past. His mobility and ability to improve and learn quickly make him a great potential back up for Love.
