Jaire Alexander's Draft Slot (#18) Value Estimated at $12050969

Jaire Alexander's Draft Slot (#18) Value Estimated at $12050969

It was far from a guarantee, but one of the names that consistently surfaced was Iowa Hawkeyes defensive back Joshua Jackson. It was too good to pass up.

"I think it shows an emphasis on special teams", McCarthy said of the selections of Alabama punter JK Scott and Mississippi State long snapper Hunter Bradley. There were a lot of things going on.

"It's something I work on every time I work on my craft", Moore said.

The trash-talking, ball hawking corner overcame a lot of talk of being injury prone, after missing the majority of past year, as well as being too small to be successful in the National Football League at 5'10, 195 pounds. Jackson led the nation with eight interceptions last season. But the Packers medical staff examined him at the combine and the team wasn't concerned about the injury or Alexander's durability.

The Seahawks used the 18th pick on Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander.




"It's obviously a more physical position", he said of the guard spot in a Packers news release, "but I'm a more aggressive guy by nature, so I fit right in". "He's scrappy, he's competitive". He's very much a competitor. "That's the best feeling in the world, a dream come true, getting that phone call knowing that someone believes in you and they have selected you to come play for their team. There's nothing, when you meet the kid, that would hold you back".

After being selected, Jackson was asked about being taken by the Packers.

It was the middle pick in the final round that caught everyone by surprise.

On the Johnson chart (again assuming the Saints first-rounder in 2019 is the lowest pick it could be at No. 32), the Packers traded 1,327 points of value for 1,522.6. "They always put an emphasis on the Draft". That left last year's second-round pick, Kevin King, as the Packers' top cornerback following an injury-shortened rookie year.

Green Bay also dealt back into the third round to select linebacker Oren Burks from Vanderbilt with the 88th overall pick. "We need to be better on special teams". We would've been happy with either of those players as well.
