In anticipation of the draft, I put together my position-by-position rankings, taking a close look at the top prospects in this class and who Green Bay could target come draft day.
Today, we’ll take a look at the cornerback class, which is another major need on their roster.
This defensive back class is deep in the early rounds, and there’s a good chance the Packers could leave one of the first two days of the draft with a starting-caliber corner.
When ranking players, I like to group them into four tiers during the pre-draft process and then rank the players within those tiers.
