Rodgers was surprised at Jordan Love pick
GREEN BAY - When Aaron Rodgers speaks, Wisconsin listens and Packer fans have been waiting for "number 12" to talk about the team drafting Jordan Love -- the man who may replace him at quarterback, eventually.

Rodgers  finally spoke publicly about it today.

Rodgers says he was watching the draft with a couple of retired NFL players -- including former teammate A.J. Hawk.

He remembers being surprised that Green Bay took a quarterback.

Head coach Matt LaFleur previously said he did not consult with Rodgers before making his pick.

The long-time quarterback says he had mixed feelings about it.
"The general reaction at first was surprise, like many people," Rodgers said. "I'm not gonna say that I was thrilled by the pick necessarily but I understand. Obviously, they thought he was such a great talent that they had to go up and get him."

Matt LaFleur will embark on his second year as Packers head coach if there is an NFL season.

He says he wasn't shocked to see his QB react the way he did.

"I totally understand where he's coming from," LaFleur said. "He's one of the most competitive people I've ever been around and you guys, you can see that competitiveness every time we step out on that field."
