18. Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville (Green Bay Packers)
The Green Bay Packers had previously traded out of the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft entirely, when they sent their pick to the New Orleans Saints. But they then traded back into the first round, sending a package of picks to Seattle to select cornerback Jaire Alexander from Louisville, who was highly coveted by defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.
The feisty cornerback has made an immediate impact for the Packers, immediately providing dividends for their selection en route to being named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team. In 2019, Alexander has paired with fellow cornerback Kevin King to have among the most pass breakups of any duo of corners in the NFL.
