Packers NFL Draft 2018: Best players still available for Green Bay heading into Day 2

After getting Louisville CB Jaire Alexander, who will be available to fill additional needs for Green Bay? New Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst will have to make his second-round pick count on Friday after dealing his third-round selection to move back up to tab Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander Thursday night. Gutekunst did net a 2019 first-rounder out of the deal, so Green Bay still comes out on top, and with multiple picks in Round 4 and Round 5, the Packers are in good position to trade up again to recoup that third-round selection. With surprises galore and a...

One of Brian Gutekunst’s right-hand men spoke about the team’s first pick on Thursday night.

Packers draft reaction: Jaire Alexander’s ball skills, athleticism negate size concerns

Jaire Alexander marks a departure from the Packers’ preferences at corner, but his combination of skills and physical gifts make him a compelling prospect.
