Packers were very interested in Marshawn Lynch in 2007 but Bills selected him before

Imagine if the Packers had Lynch?

The Green Bay Packers were apparently very interested in drafting running back Marshawn Lynch back in 2007, but the rug was pulled out from under them by Buffalo, so the story goes.

Monday Morning Quarterback’s Andrew Brandt happened to be working for Green Bay back then and really wanted Marshawn Lynch in 2007.  Lynch was the guy the Packers wanted and they settled for Justin Harrell with the 16th pick.

” Having sat for years between John Schneider and Reggie McKenzie, now the general managers for the Seahawks and Raiders, I feel like I should broker a Marshawn Lynch trade between the two. They were former colleagues of mine in Green Bay, and I remember how frustrated both were when the Bills drafted Lynch ahead of us in the first round of the 2007 draft. “
