Green Bay Packers fans have been hoping for a wide receiver in the first round of the NFL Draft, especially following the loss of Davante Adams this offseason.
However, the latest NFL Draft rumors suggest the Packers could be looking at another offensive position in the first round.
“Sources tell @TonyPauline that the Green Bay Packers and two other teams picking at the end of round one are the teams to watch to draft Boston College OL Zion Johnson,” Pro Football Network tweeted on Sunday night.

Offensive linemen aren’t the most exciting picks, but good luck winning without a strong line up front.
“Johnson and Jenkins at guard would be insane. Sign me up,” one fan tweeted.
“Please. I would love this. If they take an OT high they basically are saying goodbye to Big E in Free Agency (they might have to regardless),” another fan added.
“Zion is what @JacobMorley calls an “eat your vegetables pick” People will probably piss and moan about it, but Zion would be a decade-long starter at guard for them,” another fan added on Twitter.
Twitter will be apoplectic if they take an IOL at 28 if they didn’t already get a WR https://t.co/yrLNHkML4J
