Eric Stokes could not be more fired up to be going to the Green Bay Packers

While Stokes may be ecstatic about heading to Green Bay, many Packers fans and quarterback Aaron Rodgers would have probably preferred the No. 29 pick to have been a receiver. Green Bay is still looking for a high-end No. 2 wide-receiving option to pair alongside perennial Pro Bowler Davante Adams. Though Stokes can absolutely fly in the defensive backfield, he is not a wideout.

What Green Bay is getting is a versatile defensive back who was coached up playing for Kirby Smart in Athens. Stokes is at his best making plays in the middle of the field. While he may not be the cover-man technician of Campbell or as instinctive as undersized safety Richard LeCounte III, Stokes went in the first round for a reason. The Packers are expecting big things out of Stokes.

The newest Packer is excited to be heading to Green Bay, and that is all you can ever really ask for.
