The Packers have excellent depth at cornerback after last year’s selection of Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins in the first two rounds. Both were home run hits and join Sam Shields to form an excellent trio.
Casey Hayward is a free agent, however, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Packers pickup a cornerback at some point in the draft.
Eli Apple, Ohio State: The 6-foot-1 corner is one of the best in the draft class and has plenty to like about his game. Apple is great in coverage and is a physical corner. Could add excellent depth to an already-strong group for the Packers, but would likely require a first round selection.
Kevin Peterson, Oklahoma State: Due to his size, Peterson could find his role in the slot, which is what the Packers will miss if Hayward departs in free agency. Talented corner who could be an excellent addition on nickel packages.
Vernon Hargreaves, Florida: One of the best cornerbacks in the draft and unlikely to be there when the Packers pick. Potential to become one of the best corners in the league. If he somehow falls to No. 27, it would be hard to pass him up.
Mackensie Alexander, Clemson: Needs some development, but has the tools to become an excellent cornerback in the league. Wouldn’t be under pressure to start right away for the Packers, and would be able to offer cover while he develops his game.
