For the Green Bay Packers, things haven’t been quite as smooth sailing with their starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The QB has dropped multiple signs about not being particularly happy about how things have been going on in the organization.

And the drafting of QB Jordan Love in the first-round last year didn’t help mend relations in any way. On top of that, Rodgers’ future with the franchise now remains uncertain as the Packers haven’t reworked his contract.

The Green Bay Packers, who’ve goon oh-so-close to getting to the Super Bowl over the past two seasons are in dire need of reinforcements. And it’s this reluctance to draft the necessary offensive tools needed to succeed that has left Aaron Rodgers frustrated.

And it’s something that one NFL analyst feels the Packers must do to keep Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.

Aaron Rodgers needs another wide receiver 

NFL analyst Matt Miller during a segment of Get Up talked about how the Packers need to draft a wide receiver in this season’s draft to satisfy Aaron Rodgers.

“Make that commitment to Aaron Rodgers and give him a wide receiver in the first round. Davante Adams is great. But you can only get so far with you know taking guys like free agents, players other teams didn’t want you can only get so far with that,” said Miller.

“You don’t need a number one receiver, you have that. But you could expand this offense,” he added.

Talking further about who the franchise could pick in the first round, the analyst turned to Ole Miss’ Elijah Moore.

“So we look at where they’re at the end of round one. A player like Elijah Moore from Ole Miss, who’s great with the ball in his hands after the catch. He’s electric. He’s physical, he’s aggressive. A player like that would open up this offense,” Miller said.

“So I think Elijah Moore from Ole Miss, if he’s on the board, it’s time to break this tradition of not taking receivers early in the draft for Green Bay,” he added.

With the Packers still in search for Super Bowl #5, do you think drafting a first-round new wide receiver can play a role in helping them realize that dream?
