Most wrongly assumed that meant within the next 12 to 24 months of when Murphy said it... I tried to go back and read between the lines and my guess was that Thompson said at the end of his current contract which Murphy said at a different time runs through the 2018 season. So, I believe we will have a new GM for the 2019 draft.
I think the last promotion basically locked Elliott into the future Packers GM job, assuming he wants it and willing to wait until 2019. I have not confirmed this, but I read a fan write the last person to hold the same title as Eliot was Ted Thompson, as it's their code name for future GM title... again I have not confirmed that.
