The Browns traded Kizer to the Packers on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. With the first and fourth overall picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, they are still positioned to snag premier prospects in April. This may mean Brett Hundley's time in Green Bay will soon be coming to a close. In going 0-16 last season Cleveland called upon DeShone Kizer for 15 of those games, with the rookie completing 53.6 percent of his passes and throwing for 2,894 yards, 11 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. Entering the 2015 NFL Draft, he was the top-rated free safety prospect, but Green Bay made a decision to move him to cornerback where he's spent most of his career.
Clearly, the Packers weren't satisfied with the way Hundley performed last season after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone. He also ran for 18 touchdowns and just under 1000 yards in those two seasons.More news: Opioid overdoes in U.S. increased by 30% in only 14 months
Last week at the National Football League scouting combine, coach Mike McCarthy offered a critical assessment of the whole situation - both Hundley and the coaching aspect - when he said: "Brett Hundley wasn't ready for what he needed to be ready for". "Our structure and our coaching staff, we need to make sure we maximize that, but we also need to learn from the other parts of the offense that we didn't do as good as we would have liked, and we'll learn from that platform". Adding him to the roster doesn't tip their hand should they have been looking at a couple players in the draft, like possibly Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward or Alabama free safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. Veteran Davin House, who came back to Green Bay on a one-year deal last season, is a free agent. "It's the offseason and I just want to stay out of it". He's started 30 of 39 games for Green Bay, with 10 career interceptions and two touchdowns.
