New Packers GM Facing 1st NFL Draft

New Packers GM Facing 1st NFL Draft

New Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst has conducted another dress rehearsal for this week’s 2018 NFL Draft.  Approaching the first Packers draft where he is in the spotlight, Gutekunst wants to make sure nothing goes wrong.  He’s working to minimize the potential for confusion when the names start coming off the board Thursday.  There’s a lot of work which goes into a team’s annual draft.  For instance, Green Bay starts working toward the 2019 draft next week, right after the 2018 draft is over.  One of the worries for the new GM is that his team might “over-prepare” for the all-important annual selection of former college players.  One of the big challenges is — a lot of information is still coming in about those players, and a lot of it is false.
