The Green Bay Packers Make Significant Move For Jordan Love

The Green Bay Packers are in a very interesting spot this off-season.  Just one year removed from trading away four-time MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers, many have the Packers as an early favorite to make the playoffs once again in 2024.  Some analysts even have the team going further than that.

Packers: The Jordan Love experiment is looking worse by the week : r/nfl

This week the Packers have shown interest in multiple players who could help take this offense to the next level, however, they met formally with one who could be huge for the offense.

The Green Bay Packers Show Official Interest In Massive Wide Receiver

It has been reported that the Green Bay Packers formally met with Texas Wide Receiver Adonai Mitchell.  By the end of the 2023 season the Packers showed the NFL they were capable of putting up points on any defense.  A wild card drubbing of the Dallas Cowboys followed by a three point loss to the San Francisco 49ers left a ton of optimism for this team moving forward.  However, adding another weapon isn’t off the table.

Among the biggest winners at the NFL Combine, Adonai Mitchell rivaled his Texas teammate Worthy. Mitchell ran a blistering 4.34 in the 40. According to Warren Sharp, Mitchell is the second 6-foot-2, 205-pound receiver (or bigger) to run a 4.35 or better since 2015 (DK Metcalf). In addition to his vertical jump of 39.5 inches, the standout Longhorn also recorded 11 feet 4 inches in the broad jump, which is the largest of all participants.

It was never in doubt, but Mitchell solidified himself as a first-round pick. At every level, Mitchell creates separation. As a member of Texas’ explosive air attack, Mitchell totaled 55 catches for 845 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. It is expected that Mitchell will start on the boundary in 2024 for an NFL offense.

Adonai Mitchell’s Draft Profile Is Incredible

This will be the 5th CFP for Texas WR Adonai Mitchell

The NFL’s draft profile on the 6’4″ wide receiver is nothing shy of exciting:

Ascending prospect with size, speed and ball skills to become a very good NFL receiver, but he’s still in the process of bridging those traits. Mitchell can beat press and has the speed to take the battle to the third level but he’s still learning the art of bullying the catch space in tight quarters and jump-ball battles.

He’s not always a natural hands-catcher, but his ability to snare balls outside his frame is top-notch. His route running currently lacks focus and consistency, but agility and burst out of breaks will not be an issue. Mitchell is rugged after the catch and has the ability to become a winner on all three levels. The difference between becoming a WR2 or WR1 could rest on his urgency and willingness to go to work on the unpolished areas of his craft.

Strengths

  • Flashes foot quickness needed to beat NFL press.
  • Speed shifter inside the route with sudden change of direction.
  • Stands ground and keeps landing area to boundary open on deep sideline throws.
  • Ridiculous catch web, bringing in off-frame throws from all directions.
  • Already using the NFL two-foot drop near boundaries.
  • Patient long-ball tracker and noted jump-ball winner.
  • Able to break tackles and fall forward for positive YAC.

Weaknesses

  • Intensity can fluctuate from game to game.
  • Allows smaller players into his space to contest catches.
  • Cradle-catcher who fights football when catching with hands.
  • Needs to keep routes on time with better efficiency and finish.
  • Doesn’t play with aggression or sustain when asked to run block.

“If he can play every game like he played the Alabama game, he’ll be one the best receivers in the league. They have first-round corners and he gave them problems.” – AFC scouting director
