The Chicago Bears are tied with the Packers with one Rookie Premiere player

Maybe Aaron Rodgers has a point to be upset with the organization he has played for his entire career. The Green Bay Packers came in last place as well and since this is a Chicago Bears fan blog site, we are obviously going to put the Packers on the true bottom of the NFC North.

At least Rodgers should be a little happy knowing that the rookie player chosen from Green Bay to make the list is now a new target for Rodgers. Not to mention, they share the same last name. That’s right, Amari Rodgers out of Clemson is the only player to be selected by the Packers in the 2021 NFL Draft to make the Rookie Premiere class.

I liked Amari Rodgers heading into the draft. Rodgers was selected in the third round, which was on the earlier side of my projected third to fifth-round projection. While at Clemson, Rodgers broke out his final year and finished with 77 catches for 1,020 yards and seven touchdowns. Prior to that, Rodgers still found a way to be productive behind other great draft prospects like Tee Higgins. He scored four touchdowns in each of his sophomore and junior years.

I do think Amari Rodgers deserves a spot on the list, but I am happy no other Packers players made the final cut.
