The Green Bay Packers had a questionable draft class, to say the least. In fact, they may not have drafted a single starter for the 2020 season, but instead drafted future starters, which could rub their veterans the wrong way. One of the more notable situations is in the Packers backfield, with Aaron Jones heading into a contract year.

Green Bay drafted running back AJ Dillon in the second round of the NFL Draft. While Dillion's style differs from Jones', Packers fans wondered what it would mean for the veteran running back, who is coming off a career year where he scored 19 touchdowns.

In a recent interview with NFL Network, Jones shared his thoughts on the pick, which should have Packer fans hyped. Instead of being insulted by the move, he acknowledged that "they're bringing in guys to compete every day."

Jones continued saying "it's gonna raise my game and I'm excited to have him there and start working with him." Raise his game from 19 touchdowns? Cheeseheads everywhere should be on board.

While the Packers' draft may not have seemed ideal for a team that made the NFC Championship last season, if the organization feels the team underachieved in 2019, it may have been the right call. It appears key starters like Jones and Aaron Rodgers have chips on their shoulders heading into 2020.
