Aaron Rodgers says NFL Draft has become spectacle and adds pressure to rookie QBs
Rodgers had interesting comments on quarterbacks going high in the Draft. “I’m glad I was drafted in 2005,” Rodgers said. “It’s such a spectacle today.”
Rodgers pointed out teams drafting at the top don’t necessarily have great players around them. “Some of these teams might not be ready right away to be playoff teams,” Rodgers said. “The scrutiny on those players is so much more than I was drafted as a first-round player.”
Rodgers commented on the Packers’ draft. He said he has no problem with the team focusing on the defense.
Rodgers explained that he has been offered to host Saturday Night Live, but couldn’t because he had several weddings he had to go to. Rodgers said that Peyton Manning set a high bar for Saturday Night Live.
Rodgers said he was more nervous being in the booth with Dan and crew on the NBC Super Bowl pregame show than he was playing. “You guys were really easy to work with,” Rodgers said. “You gave us softballs.”
