Green Bay’s top pick was the best in the NFL at breaking up passes this season."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCSTShareTweetShareSharePackers rookie Jaire Alexander contested passes more often than any other cornerbackBrad Rempel-USA TODAY SportsWe all knew that Jaire Alexander had a good rookie year. After the Green Bay Packers selected him 18th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft Color Rush Jace Sternberger Jersey , Alexander went on to play in 13 games, starting 11 of them, and demonstrate why he was worthy of that mid-first-round pick. Alexander was the team’s most effective corner as a rookie, and he found himself joining Browns rookie Denzel Ward on the PFWA All-Rookie team at cornerback. One interception, 11 pass breakups, a half-sack,and 66 total tackles will get you there.However, Alexander’s ball skills were even better than those raw numbers suggest. Pro Football Focus charts every NFL player, and found that Alexander contested a whopping 36.7 percent of passes that were targeted for the receiver he covered. That’s the highest rate in the league this season for cornerbacks, and it made him one of just two corners who contested more than a third of targets:Those other names in the top five of this are also good corners — a few are young, like Alexander, while one in particular is at the top of his craft. Humphrey and Jackson are second-year players who are developing into excellent every-down cornerbacks. Alford is six-year veteran and five-year starter with double-digit pass defenses every season since 2014. Gilmore, the best of the bunch, was voted first-team All-Pro this season.It’s great to see Alexander in the company of players like this. His ball skills and aggressiveness should keep him at the top of this list for years to come, and it should be fun to watch him continue to make plays on the football — hopefully with more interceptions forthcoming. The lasting memory of the Packers’ best pick at 150 is a clutch win over the Vikings."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers Draft Pick History: Corey Bradford beat the Vikings after being picked at #150The Green Bay Packers hold ten draft picks in the 2019 NFL Draft Cheap Jace Sternberger Jersey , and for a team that has a storied, 100-year history, they have predictably made selections in the past at every one of these draft slots. Over the next few days leading up to this year’s draft, Acme Packing Company will examine the Packers’ history at each current slot for 2019, as well as run down the names of recent picks around the league at the position.The Green Bay Packers have selected 150th overall four times in their history. While they have received only modest production from those four picks, there is one particular memory about one of these players that likely stands out in the mind of many Packers fans — a thrilling ending to a comeback victory over a division rival.Meanwhile, the best player ever selected at 150 overall by any team was a linebacker from tiny Fort Valley State University. In 1987, the Pittsburgh Steelers grabbed Greg Lloyd at #150. After a quiet first two years, Lloyd grabbed a starting job as one of the Steelers’ outside linebackers in 1989, a job he would hold down for a decade. Lloyd made five Pro Bowls and got three first-team All Pro nods, recording 54.5 sacks and a whopping 35 forced fumbles in his career.The Packers did not find a player nearly that good at 150, but they did land one player known for a few clutch receptions and another who went on to a few solid years with other teams.Packers’ History at #1501951: Ed Stephens, RB1965: Jim Weatherwax, DT1998: Corey Bradford, WRAlthough Stephens and Weatherwax have faded into obscurity Jace Sternberger Jersey Womens , Bradford had a few nice years for Green Bay. In his second year, he caught a game-winning touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in Lambeau Field. That catch came with just 12 seconds remaining on the clock, capping a furious two-minute drill after the Vikings had taken the lead just before the two-minute warning on a Randy Moss touchdown.After four years with the Packers, Bradford signed a free agent deal with the expansion Houston Texans. He started for them for the better part of four seasons, then closed out his career with one final season in Detroit.2008: Breno Giacomini, OTGiacomini struggled to start his NFL career, landing on the Packers’ practice squad for a few years and playing just one game for the Green and Gold. After being plucked off the practice squad by the Seahawks in 2010, Giacomini spent seven years as a starter for the Seahawks, Jets, and Texans. His playing days look to be over, however, after he was released by the Raiders during training camp last summer.Recent History at #1502018: Genard Avery, LB, Memphis (Browns)2017: Jordan Leggett, TE Jace Sternberger Green Bay Packer , Clemson (Jets)2016: Jordan Howard, RB, Indiana (Bears)2015: Cedric Thompson, S, Minnesota (Dolphins)2014: Aaron Lynch, EDGE, USF (49ers)2013: Terry Hawthorne, CB, Illinois (Steelers)2012: Rokevious Watkins, G, South Carolina (Rams)2011: Jason Pinkston, OT, Pittsburgh (Browns)
