The Packers could be doing their due diligence on a quarterback with an eye on eventually finding a successor for QB Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay has both the No. 12 and No. 30 picks in the first round this year.
Yahoo!’s Charles Robinson says teams later in the draft are doing homework on some of the other top quarterback prospects in case Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray doesn’t go No. 1, which would push guys like Lock further down the board.
Rodgers is 35 years old, which is the same age Brett Favre was when the Packers selected Rodgers in the first round in 2005.
Lock has also received interest from the Redskins, Giants, Broncos and Chargers.
Lock, 22, is expected to be a first-round pick in this year’s draft and possibly a top-10 selection when all is said and done.
During his four-year college career at Missouri, Lock threw for 12,193 yards, 99 touchdowns and 39 interceptions. He also added 437 yards rushing and nine touchdowns.
