Round 2: CB Quinten Rollins
It already felt like the Packers had taken a risk by selecting Randall in the first round, but they went onto select another cornerback in the second round in Quinten Rollins. But here was the concern: Rollins’ background was in basketball, and he has only played one year at cornerback with Miami.
But once again, Ted Thompson made a great decision.
Rollins wasn’t fully healthy early on in the year and took a while to take over Micah Hyde’s role in nickel packages, but the rookie played some of his best ball later in the season. You could make an argument that Rollins was playing better than Randall at the backend of 2015.
Rollins finished his rookie campaign with two interceptions—which both came against St. Louis in Week 5—six defended passes and a sack. He did drop four interceptions however, per Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, but overall his play was very encouraging for the Packers.
The Packers hit their opening two picks of the draft out of the park with Randall and Rollins. The two have bright futures in Green Bay and could become one of the best cornerback duos in the NFL down the line.
