As the race to the 2021 NFL Playoffs is heating up, that doesn't mean football fans aren't planning for the future.

The Green Bay Packers currently own the NFC's No. 1 seed but the uncertainty around the future of the offense with Aaron Rodgers (or Jordan Love) under center has the Packers anxious about the future of the franchise.

That's exactly why Packers fans will love their projected pick in NFL insider Todd McShay's first 2022 NFL Mock Draft.

Packers Mock Draft

McShay has the Packers selected WR Chris Olave of the Ohio State Buckeyes with the 28th pick in the first round.

Green Bay hasn't taken a wideout in the first round since Javon Walker back in the 2002 draft. It's the uncertain future that has Packers fans worried. Rodgers has been vocally displeased with his franchise's lack of surrounding him with playmakers, especially considering his favorite target Davante Adams is headed for free agency, and also a question mark to return in 2022.

Olave would be the fourth wide receiver taken off McShay's mock board, and an explosive collegiate playmaker. He's known for his route-running and ability to beat coverage off the line, and has caught 35 TDs and 2,711 receiving yards in four years at Ohio State.

Green Bay looks to add a Super Bowl title before addressing these offseason needs, however and holds the third-best odds (+650) to win Super Bowl LVI on FanDuel Sportsbook.
