If you want to maximize your enjoyment of the draft, don’t get hung up on hoping for players and enjoy watching one of the best GMs in the league make your Green Bay Packers a better football team. One of the things that makes Gute such a good GM is the way he finds opportunities that are less than obvious. Moving back 4 spots, picking up 2 additional picks, and still getting your guy, may seem simple but it’s how he finds players like Dontayvion Wicks and Karl Brooks. 

He could’ve taken Cooper at 41 and everyone would’ve celebrated it, and no one would’ve questioned why he didn’t move back and pick up additional picks. Instead he still gets Cooper and gains 2 additional picks that he can trade or use. You could end the draft now with just these 5 picks and this team is better. Enjoy the rest of the ride on day-3, Packers fans!
