NFL Draft: Packers get 'top-notch' CB in Jaire Alexander

New Packers CB Jaire Alexander's college stats are eye-popping, ranking as Pro Football Focus' fifth-best cornerback in college football in 2016, the last season he was completely healthy.

Alexander, who missed time in 2017, managed to allow a sub-20 passer rating in limited time during his junior season.

In this scouting report, the argument is that sub-6' players like Alexander can still have a role in the NFL, and even as a top corner. Scouts compare Alexander to the other top corners in the NFL Draft, such as Denzel Ward, and it seems the Packers have found a top-level defensive back with the 18th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
