Green Bay Packers' 2018 draft: Analysis for every selection

GETTYAaron Rodgers has the ability to win the Super Bowl with Green Bay Packers

During his sophomore season, Alexander picked off a career-high five passes. This was shocking for two reasons. Taking a running back in the first round is a big risk.

What's next: As things stand now, the Packers have only one pick on Friday - No. 45 overall (a second-rounder) because they sent their third-round pick to Seattle.

"He played a lot of zone defense at Iowa.he basically started for one year.this is a guy who looks the part, and boy, last year, he certainly played the part", said WTMJ Packers Radio Network voice Wayne Larrivee.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Gibson is expected to transition to tight end as he tries to make an National Football League roster with Green Bay. Both Tremaine Edmunds and Derwin James were still on the board at this point.

Jackson is 65th selection under Kirk Ferentz, 9th second round selection, and 13th defensive back!

Gibson was hoping to get drafted but did not get selected in the first seven rounds.

"I wouldn't use the term bypass", Gutekunst said.

This was the team's first pick on Day 3. Past year with their top pick, the Packers took Washington cornerback Kevin King, who is 6-3.

As for the details of the Seahawks trade, they dealt their first-round and seventh-round picks to the Packers in exchange for a later first-round pick, a third-round pick, and a sixth-round pick. "So I get it. Pass rush is something that we want to add more competition to and hopefully that will be answered as we move forward".

Now yes, it is a surprise that they drafted Alexander given he is shorter than their normal required height for corners.

Wide receiver and offensive line are also position of needs. He struggled mightily a year ago with injuries, but evaluators do not expect that trend to continue. "He talks a little bit - most corners do".

Jackson is a long-armed cornerback who represents excellent value for the Packers in the second round. "The anticipation, the ball hawk that he is, the awareness he showed, the hands for the INT, that's Josh Jackson". For the Packers, it's pure bliss. Over the course of his career Alexander totaled 424 total yards and one touchdown on punt returns. Now that they surely have one need addressed, it is on to the next one.
