Cornerback is arguably the Packers’ biggest need. So far this offseason they have traded away Damarious Randall and signed Tramon Williams. It’s a reverse of what happened three years ago, when the Packers let Williams walk in free agency before using their first-round pick on Randall.
The Packers need another cornerback or two in the draft, and could look to select one on the opening night.

Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report: Jaire Alexander, Louisville
Alexander could be exactly what Green Bay’s secondary needs. His 40-yard time at the combine (4.38 seconds) was sixth fastest among cornerbacks. Some analysts view Alexander as a late first-rounder to early second. We’ll see whether Gutekunst agrees with that assessment. Full Bleacher Report mock draft
Chad Reuter of NFL.com: Denzel Ward, Ohio State
Arguably the best cornerback in the class, if Ward falls to No. 14 Gutekunst might run to the podium himself. If there is a run on quarterbacks early, the odds of Ward dropping to the Packers will increase. Full NFL.com mock draft
Connor Riley of SEC Country: Josh Jackson, Iowa
Jackson’s name has been dropping in mock drafts, partly due to his 4.56-second 40-time. Despite that, he’s one of the top cornerback prospects in the class, and could become a Day 1 starter in Green Bay. Full SEC Country mock draft
Justin Baumann of BuffaLowDown: Josh Jackson, Iowa
Another mock, another Jackson selection. He had eight interceptions for Iowa last year. He even found the end zone twice. Full BuffaLowDown mock draft
