In the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers could have selected T.J. Watt. Instead of one of the best defenders in the league, Packers wound up with Kevin King.

It will never go away. I'm sure even the front office regrets it.

Didn't like Watt there. Remember at the time, he had just torn up his knee.

Didn't care for King's history either, just saying. King was also a trade nack into the 2nd roubd, iirc.

Where are the articles about other teams missing out on players the Packers picked? There has to be teams upset they didn't take Kenny Clark, Davante Adams, Jaire Alexander ... where those at?

Yeah this type of situation can be brought up in a lot of different cases. Too bad we passed on Adrian Peterson to draft AJ Hawk too.

If the 2019 draft had a redo, does Elgton Jenkins last more than 15 picks?

Or Bakhtiari to the 4th round in his draft?

It happens every year. The draft is not perfect. One of the reasons I laugh at the media experts. They are wrong more than the team's are. Yet you never see them admit it.

They also make the assumption that everything would just shake out the same way with names swapped around like Huber does here: assuming that GB ends up in the NFC title game but better positioned on defense due to more cap to spread around. He also assumes Watt would have fared better vs Tampa but that's overlooking Brady's quick release and the number of balls that he throws away when nothing is available to avoid contact at all costs. If GB drafts Watt, who's playing opposite of him? Does Gutey still sign Z to a massive contract? Does Preston get signed as a cheaper fill in option? Do they draft some mid-tier guys in later rounds instead of Gary? A large part of the success that GB has had in terms of creating pressure and getting to the QB has revolved around rotating the Smith Bros and Gary as well as lining them up all over.

The reason so many are sore about that pick - many (most) fans I know wanted them to draft TJ. It adds to the anger because the returns on King have been that of a 7th round flyer pick. Easy to criticize with hindsight, but even without that - it was obvious in the moment that they took the wrong guy.

All of that said - it is true that things would have been handled differently as far as free agency and future drafts. No telling what roster we might have now. Instead of having a guy like Z or Gary, he might be expected to do it all himself - happens more often than most would think.

It is amazing how often people (media) fail to consider the butterfly effect.

dfosterf (8h) : Wife went to her zumba class this evening. Middle aged fellow rolled in wearing his baby dress, diaper and bonnet. He didn't have the pink plastic slippers or anything
dfosterf (10h) : Your answer made me laugh, though
dfosterf (10h) : You're right. Can't have a day of infamy speech and get the year wrong. Sept 27 2022. I was only off by 20 years. History would forgive me
Zero2Cool (10h) : Will.
dfosterf (11h) : You may. You really might. But this is my week, and I play Jersey Cheese this week, and he is a coward that doesn't have the courage to post here, so I rag you instead
Zero2Cool (11h) : Gutekunst says he's seen enough to know his decision on Jordan Love option. Says he's a starter in this league. Whew. Glad to hear that. Our run of dominance won't end!!
Zero2Cool (12h) : Zero2Cool rag tag team destroyed dfosterf team!!!!!
Zero2Cool (12h) : And yes, I probably will lose. Most likely. But if I win?? If?? OMG! I'm gonna put a banner up on the site for a year!
Zero2Cool (12h) : What the hell did I do when I was 22??
dfosterf (12h) : I looked on fleaflicker. I might be the only Mgr. that has Justin Jefferson and Davante Adams on the same fantasy football team on this planet.
dfosterf (12h) : Oh, and you are going down, young Kev, because on September 27, 2002, you fu^ked up.
dfosterf (13h) : Semi weekly rant done. Lol
dfosterf (13h) : Murphy has done wonders over his tenure as regards the Packers as a corporate entity. Anyone give much of a crap about that? I don't.
dfosterf (13h) : I would ask the coaches of the Packers who should run the show, and the vets, including yes, Aaron Rodgers
dfosterf (13h) : We need a true football guy to run this organization.
dfosterf (13h) : Mark Murphy sucks up to my examples. He is a corporate suck up. Impossible for the corporate bosses he sucks up to...to fire him.
dfosterf (13h) : Sargento has decent cheese. Get the hell out of decision making as regards the Green Bay Packers
dfosterf (13h) : Kohler family
dfosterf (13h) : It's worse than machine politics. Kohls builds crappers, not NFL football teams, as an example
dfosterf (13h) : They can start by getting rid of the whole Wisconsin booster club that encompasses our ownership representation
Zero2Cool (13h) : Fans whine they don't go all in. They go all in and fans whine about salary cap. See a trend? Fans whining. Packers win, ya all still whining. Spoiled asses.
dfosterf (13h) : Any idiot can make this non-profit team financially secure for any foreseeable future. We need brains to work with the cap. I don't see that
Zero2Cool (13h) : I don't think young HC is handling the massive personality at QB. Pretty positive the organization believed Rodgers would be out by now.
dfosterf (13h) : This organization must be all about winning. It is their job. Not tv's in the nosebleed sections. Not sledding hills outside the stadium. Not great experiences in Green Bay. Winning.
dfosterf (13h) : Unprecedented based on his first three years as a hc, but I have no problem firing MLF for this year.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Matt Lafleur on Romeo Doubs chances of returning after the bye week. "Ya I would think we'd get Rome back."
Zero2Cool (13h) : LaFleur says he’d like to get the ball to Christian Watson more but joked then he’d get criticized for not getting Aaron Jones more touches.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Matt LaFleur doesn't know a timetable for David Bakhtiari and his return. He was told that it could be awhile.
Zero2Cool (15h) : I think it'll be you vs me Week 15 to open playoffs.
dfosterf (15h) : Said so at the time, stickin to my story
dfosterf (15h) : All I know is that Joe Barry ain't it
Zero2Cool (16h) : I think trade deadline is over, so 49ers probably cannot get Brissett in 2022
Zero2Cool (16h) : Chargers miss playoffs, does Brandon Staley get fired? Come to GB as DC?
buckeyepackfan (16h) : 49rs should inquire about Jacoby Brissett.
buckeyepackfan (16h) : Browns signed the abuser to 5 year, 230mil Fully Guaranteed contract.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Ian Rapoport even mentions Baker to 49ers as backup. NFL has no memory whatsoever of crappy QB play. I blame Geno Smith
Zero2Cool (16h) : Baker wants to be released because he doesn't want to backup. So I mean. I dunno
yooperfan (17h) : A shout out to wayoutwest for his pick the winner prowess!
dfosterf (17h) : Apropos
yooperfan (17h) : It would be great all around if the Niners traded for Rodgers.
dfosterf (17h) : Zero logic? (Something apprapo in there somewhere) Josh Johnson or Baker Mayfield? That's what the 49ers are looking at with regards to a backup qb
TheKanataThrilla (17h) : Could Baker end up with the Ravens...at least for a few weeks?
Zero2Cool (17h) : I'm gonna lose my shit. Wait, nope, it's lost.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Browns took a guy who sexually assaults women over him!!!
Zero2Cool (17h) : The guy is terrible. Browns didn't want hkm
Zero2Cool (17h) : I must be the dumbest guy around. So many towing the Baker to 49ers line. The guy sucks! Why would 49ers want him? Zero logic.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Omg. Another dolt saying 49ers
dfosterf (18h) : 49ers almost have to pick him up
Zero2Cool (19h) : Panthers are expected to release Baker Mayfield
