NFL Draft: Jaire Alexander 'too excited' for opportunity with Packers

NFL Draft: Jaire Alexander 'too excited' for opportunity with Packers NFL Draft: Jaire Alexander 'too excited' for opportunity with Packers

Thanks to two trades, the Packers ended up securing even more valuable draft capital while still selecting a player that fit a need: Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander.

"You hope the guys embrace it and are pros about it and try to get better", scout Matt Malaspina said. An inside linebacker who might actually be able to cover tight ends and running backs.

"I think you're always looking for bigger targets", McCarthy said. During his junior season with MSUM, he had 90 catches for 1,549 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Jackson was the Big 10 defensive back of the year. Moore was the 15th wide receiver taken in the draft, but he had no complaints about his destination.

"I'm so happy and it's such a surreal feeling", Jackson said of being drafted by a organization that will keep the Texas native in the Midwest.

Green Bay wants to get better on defense, but its special teams could also stand to improve.

Jackson ran a 4.56 40-yard dash at the draft combine, which may have cost him a spot in the first round.

Green Bay remembered how hard life can be without Aaron Rodgers in 2017, when the quarterback missed nine games with a collarbone injury. This offseason started with them losing cornerback Damarious Randall. By making his lists and checking them twice, he made sure of that.

Veteran Tramon Williams returned as a free agent to the Packers, who also brought back Davon House. "And the value of the players that we picked were just higher valued players than the pass rushers that were on the board". But with eight draft picks on Day 3 of the 2018 National Football League draft, the Packers obviously felt they could take a chance on a guy with needs filled elsewhere.

Falk is the first WSU quarterback selected in the draft since Alex Brink was taken in the seventh round by the Houston Texans in 2008. At a time when they really needed to sure up their secondary, they grabbed two young and prominent corners and gained some future assets.

When the proceedings were over, general manager Brian Gutekunst's first draft class was notable for how many bases it covered. They were 23rd in passing yards allowed with 236.8.
