Over the last several weeks Alexander has been one of the most talked players on the defensive side of the ball, and was in the running for being the first cornerback taken.
Listed at 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, Gibson is projected as a tight end in the National Football League after playing wide receiver for the Dragons from 2014-17. After trading with the Green Bay Packers, Seattle has the number 76 pick overall and a third rounder. As the team was put on the clock for the No. 18 overall selection in the first round, a trade with the Green Bay Packers was announced. They see Burks as a versatile inside linebacker who can cover. Said Alexander: "I'm a big believer in heart over height".
The Packers could use an edge rusher to help Clay Matthews and Nick Perry. Not only at the top of the draft with the two cornerbacks, but also all throughout.More news: Thousands of balloons released in lovely tribute to Alfie Evans
"It'd be nice to come out of every draft and fill all the holes you think you have, but that's never the case", he said.
That dream became a reality today. Alexander missed the next four games and then returned for two games, to record five tackles for the Cardinals. This selection will keep Jackson in the mid west, one state away from the "Hawkeye State".
Jackson ran a 4.56 40-yard dash at the draft combine, which may have cost him a spot in the first round.
"It goes back to his awareness and IQ for the game", Dotson said. "Brown is a big receiver but moves well for that size and dropped just six passes in his college career".More news: Valtteri Bottas: I'll need 10 beers to get over that one
If there's a story to be told down the road about General Manager Brian Gutekunst's first draft, it'll focus on the players picked and not on the room he commanded.
At the same time, the Green Bay secondary is far from loaded.
Packers finished with a 7-9 campaign and ended third in NFC North. Bud Dupree, a first-round pick in 2015, has not had the impact the Steelers would have expected, so Sweat would also make sense for Pittsburgh.
They just about had to. Last season, Scott averaged 42.96 yards per punt. They didn't, presumably because he's a small-school project who isn't the pass-rushing lock that Chubb is. The cornerback position was ravaged by injuries.More news: Sessions declines to recuse himself from probe into Trump lawyer
Gibson had an idea that the Packers were the team he would end up with as draft was coming to a close on Saturday afternoon.
