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 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 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
