The Green Bay Packers have added a quarterback in the 2023 NFL Draft, and a surprising one, too.
With pick No. 149 in the 5th round, the Packers selected Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford.
Interestingly, the former Nittany Lion signal caller is older than projected Packers’ starting quarterback Jordan Love by about three and a half months. SportingNews was among the first to point out this intriguing NFL draft tidbit.

Clifford was Penn State’s starting quarterback for four seasons between 2019 and 2022. He actually beat out Will Levis, a former Nittany Lion and second-round pick this year, for the starting gig in both 2019 and 2020.
While Clifford being selected in the 5th round came as a bit of a surprise to the NFL world, to see him land with the Packers isn’t overly shocking. Green Bay spent a top-30 visit on Clifford earlier this month.
Jordan Love will face competition from an experienced rookie this offseason.
