Every year, I run a Packers Fan Draft Challenge.
The exercise has always helped me better understand and appreciate the draft, but more than anything, it’s just fun.
This year, two brave souls participated for the first round, making their picks in real time based on who was available. The only rule was they had to submit their pick before Packers announced who they selected.
Here’s how it worked out:
Steve Zeng (@Stevo36z):
- George Pickens
- George Karlaftis
- Devonte Wyatt
- Christian Watson
Steve went with George’s for each pick in the first round and Randy amazingly took two Packers selections, each one slot earlier – that has to be a good sign!
These are picks that I think really fit based on where the Packers were and I look forward to seeing how they unfold. No offense to Steve, but I really hope Randy’s picks work out better!
