In the confidence department, new Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has nothing to worry about when it comes to his quarterbacks. Aaron Rodgers has proven to be one of the best signal callers out there, and has every right to be cocky when it comes to his quarterbacking skills.

Yet, he's not the only QB on the Packers' roster who has some extra pep in his step. The team's backup QB, DeShone Kizer, is also brimming with confidence.

Saying that he sees himself as a "future Super Bowl MVP" is perhaps a bit much for the 23-year-old youngster to predict.

With Rodgers being 35, and showing no signs of slowing down, Kizer is likely going to be riding the pine for the few seasons, should he stay in Green Bay.

And let's not forget Kizer's start to his NFL career hasn't been so great, either. He was a flop of a second-round pick for the Cleveland Browns back in 2017. His rookie season, in which he started 15 games, Kizer threw for 11 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. Yikes!

You've got to admire Kizer shooting for the stars, but maybe he should focus on winning a starting job first. That alone could prove to be one heck of a mountain to climb.

However, if he does ultimately leave Green Bay and nabs a starting gig, maybe, just maybe, Kizer will prove his haters wrong.
