9. I noticed that for the second consecutive year, shovelheadt decided he needed to back up the most talented quarterback in NFL history.
I really don’t understand it. Last year, I ripped shovelheadt for selecting Aaron Rodgers at 7.03. As it turns out, Rodgers was well worth that draft position, but was he worth it to shovelheadt? Obviously, this is a mock, so no one is actually setting lineups. But I question how many times Rodgers would have even started for him if this were a real league? Even in an MVP campaign for the Packer, Mahomes averaged 0.8 ppg more than Rodgers. Similarly, what exactly is the scenario where Joe Burrow makes more than a single start for this team? Shovelheadt passed on legitimate starting caliber players such as Chase Claypool, Tyler Boyd, and Courtland Sutton in order to spend a premium pick on a player that will, at most, play exactly one week for this team. I just wish I could get an explanation of shovelheadt’s affinity for not only drafting a backup for Patrick Mahomes, but using a top seven round pick to do so.
