Green Bay - With the 29th pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected cornerback Eric Stokes out of Georgia. Stokes had four interceptions in 2020 for the Bulldogs and was credited with 20 tackles.
The pick comes several hours after ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that quarterback Aaron Rodgers wanted out of Green Bay. It has been speculated that Rodgers was disgruntled with the team's selection of Jordan Love last season.
