The old poker saying of if you can't find the fish at the table than the fish is you applies to the Packers' draft.
Rashan Gary was the biggest underachiever in the draft. Some sucker was going to pick him in the first round, though. Hello Green Bay at No. 12.
The Packers could have gotten a good safety with their other first-round pick, No. 30. It was not a targeted area by other teams at this point of the draft.
Nassir Adderley and Juan Thornhill come to mind. Nope. The Packers traded up - in a draft that was top-heavy with quality in the second, third and fourth rounds - to take Darnell Savage giving up their No. 30 pick and two fourth round draft choices.
Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst didn't apply a lesson that Hall of Fame GM Ron Wolf learned the hard way when he took Terrell Buckley in the first round. That lesson being don't take midget safeties who can't tackle.
Make a questionable head coaching hire in Matt LaFleur. Way overspend in free agency. Botch up the first round. That's what the Packers have done so far in 2019. Packers president Mark Murphy chose Gutekunst to replace senile Ted Thompson. Murphy could have selected John Dorsey or Eliot Wolf, Ron's son, instead of Gutekunst.
Gutekunst is in over his head. And Murphy, a true mediocrity, has put the Packers on course to become the worst team in the NFC North instead of restoring their past glory.
