WSU's Madison drafted in fifth round

WSU's Madison drafted in fifth round

With their first pick of the day the Packers picked up Missouri wide receiver J'Mon Moore 133rd overall, but they weren't done there.

Falk, 6-foot-4 and 223 pounds, is the all-time leading career passer in the Pac-12. The passing attack slipped to 25th in the league last season after Rodgers was limited to seven games because of a broken collarbone.

Green Bay's first of three fifth round picks was the first of the round and came from the trade that sent Damarious Randall to Cleveland.

"I just want to thank them so much for believing in me". Friday, they added another cornerback.

In Alexander, the Packers get a versatile cover man who can play both outside and inside and also contribute as a punt returner.

"New Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst wasn't shy in his first draft". It may be only one pick, but that is better than zero.

After being selected, Jackson was asked about being taken by the Packers.

Kevin King, last year's second-round pick out of Washington, is the top returning cornerback after showing flashes of promise, but his season ended in December because of injury. "The speed never really anxious us because he's just so smart and he's always in the right position to play the ball". "While his height was not a deterrent for Gutekunst - "I'm a big believer in heart over height", Alexander said, "(and) I don't pay attention to size or anything like that" - his special-teams abilities were a bonus.

However, the Packers stuck to their guns and got an extra first round pick out of next year's draft for their troubles. Jackson has some of the best ball skills and instincts in this class, he is excellent at finding the football when it's in the air which helped him lead the nation in interceptions and passes defended this past year. Cards fans expected big things out of the ball-hawking corner in his junior season, but injuries kept him out from most of the season, and really hampering the Cards chances of making a big-time bowl.

If you use the analytics-based Chase Stuart chart, the Packers also made out great.
