Green Bay Packers select Jaire Alexander at No. 18

"All of our scouts that went into Louisville this year liked him quite a bit".

To get back to the playoffs, the Green Bay Packers' defense needs to improve against the pass.

Overall, they hit on every need and have some players who could make a real impact in the upcoming season. Maybe they will add more, too.

"I pretty much can play wherever", Alexander said. In 2016, Alexander became one of the top cornerbacks in the country. He only played in six games last season, starting five, after sustaining a knee injury. But after an extremely strong combine performance, which included a 4.38 - 40 yard dash, and a 35 inch vertical leap, Alexander began shooting up draft boards. "I think any quarterback would prefer to throw to a bigger target". "Being faster than the receiver is only half the battle, so definitely rely on my speed and technique". Can he play inside?

The Saints have been searching for a running mate to go alongside Cameron Jordan for a while now, with giving up next years 1st-round pick they better hope he's that guy. "He's a dynamic, explosive athlete". At a time when they really needed to sure up their secondary, they grabbed two young and prominent corners and gained some future assets.

USA ambassador to UK: Trump is 'very thick-skinned'
Asked how concerned the president is about the prospect of protests , Mr Johnson added: 'He's very thick-skinned. When Mrs May initially extended the invitation to Mr Trump in 2017, a state visit was on the cards.

Brian Gutekunst wrapped up his first National Football League draft as General Manager of the Green Bay Packers by taking a third wide receiver late in the sixth round and finally addressing the pass rush in the 7th along with an unprecedented draft choice. They then struck a deal with the Seahawks to move back up, surrendering a third-round pick (No. 76) and a sixth-round pick (No. 186) to move from 27th to 18th in Round 1.

This was Brian Gutekunst's first draft as general manager after taking over for the retired Ted Thompson in January.

"Getting that first round pick for next year, I thought that was the best thing for us, and felt pretty confident about moving back up", Gutekunst said.

That's the view of Sky Sport pundit Neil Reynolds, who believes Green Bay need to be positive in their picks at this year's NFL Draft.
