The 2021 NFL Draft is taking place Friday evening from Cleveland.
During Round One Thursday, the Green Bay Packers selected Georgia cornerback Erik Stokes. With the 62nd pick in Round Two, they select center Josh Myers from Ohio State. They also moved up to the 85th pick in Round Three to select Clemson wide receiver Amari Rodgers.
The Packers continue to be a focal point in the NFL due to multiple reports that Aaron Rodgers does not want to return to the team. General Manager Brian Gutekunst says Rodgers will not be traded and expect him to be part of the team’s 2021 roster.
Another Wisconsin connection in the NFL Draft came true Friday as UW-Whitewater offensive lineman Quinn Meinerz was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 98th pick in Round Three. Meinerz lives in Hartford.
This page will be updated throughout the evening with who the Packers have selected, any trades that have been made involving the Packers, and analysis.
Amari Rodgers looks to me like the slot and movement chess piece the @packers are looking for. He also returns punts!! Great value in 3rd round.— Wayne Larrivee (@waynelarrivee) May 1, 2021
Another A. Rodgers in Green Bay. There, we made the joke. Phew. Glad we got that out of the way.— Bryan Dee (@BryanJDee) May 1, 2021

The #Packers select Ohio State center Josh Myers at No. 62. What will Aaron Rodgers think? Perhaps he’ll offer thoughts on the red carpet.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 1, 2021

#Packers 3rd-round pick is No. 92. Ron Wolf owned it in the 90s but beyond Morgan Burnett, Jermichael Finley and James Jones, other 2000s picks were:— Jason Wilde (@jasonjwilde) April 30, 2021

FWIW: I talked to someone who looked at QB Aaron Rodgers’ contract and there is NOT a no-trade clause, so the #Packers don’t need his approval to deal him. He would just have to agree to continue playing for the trade to take place. Nothing imminent, just reporting.— Tom Silverstein (@TomSilverstein) April 30, 2021
