Packers Ballot: Followers are most enthusiastic about rookie TE Luke Musgrave

Earlier this week, Acme Packing Firm requested our readership three questions in regards to the 2023 NFL Draft to attempt to get a vibe verify on how Inexperienced Bay Packers followers are feeling after their 13-pick haul. With rookies reporting on Friday to rookie minicamp, we figured there’s no higher time to share the outcomes with you than now.

The overwhelming majority of Packers followers seen this previous draft class as a optimistic or the crew. Regardless that 26 p.c of followers gave the number of Iowa pass-rusher Lukas Van Ness a C grade or decrease final week, solely eight p.c of followers would say the identical factor about their draft class as an entire. I might assume that the variations between these polls are followers who have been sad in regards to the Van Ness choice however really feel nice in regards to the crew choosing three straight pass-catchers on Day 2 in tight finish Lukas Van Ness, receiver Jayden Reed and tight finish Tucker Kraft.

I had a sense that the number of Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford was going to be essentially the most controversial number of the Packers’ 2023 draft class. Whereas there was some negativity across the Van Ness choose, solely 17 p.c of Inexperienced Bay followers gave this draft alternative a B grade or increased. For reference, Clifford was anticipated to be an undrafted free agent — primarily based on consensus draft boards — and was picked 149th general after a five-quarterback run between the 127th and a hundred and fortieth picks within the draft. From the surface trying in, it felt like a variety made out of panic.

So far as who followers are most excited to see on the sphere, the winner in an in depth race is Oregon State tight finish Luke Musgrave, the Packers’ first of two second-round picks. All 4 of Inexperienced Bay’s Day 1 and Day 2 alternatives earned between 29 and 20 p.c of the vote, to indicate you ways tight this end result was. Considerably surprisingly, the 9 Day 3 alternatives mixed for a complete of simply 5 p.c of the vote. Personally, getting Virginia receiver Dontayvion Wicks within the fifth spherical would have been in my top-five decisions for this query, but it surely’s exhausting to edge out any of the Packers’ early alternatives in final week’s draft.
