Aaron Rodgers said he and backup quarterback Matt Flynn recently discussed that when the Packers drafted TE Richard Rodgers in the third round, at least one analyst on the TV broadcast of the NFL draft said he’d rated Rodgers a sixth-round prospect.
“Which is pretty laughable when you watch the talent he’s got and the ability, especially some of the plays he made today,” Aaron Rodgers said. “Again, it’s helmet and shorts, but you have to be excited about his body type and the hands. He’s made some incredible catches, makes it look easy. I think he’s going to push for some playing time if he can transfer what he’s done in the spring now to the fall and have the potential to be an impact player.”
