Tramon Williams – 79
This is probably the most anticipated group on the team and it probably isn’t headed by who most fans would think. Williams finished last year as an 82 overall. Age is definitely a factor in Williams being lower than that to start the year. With the new and exciting rookies I still expect Williams to be the number one corner.

Jaire Alexander – 77
Most first-round corners from last year fell into the 75-78 range. I think Alexander has the playmaking ability and the athleticism to be on the higher end of that spectrum if the ratings are handled similarly in Madden 19. Alexander is an in-your-face player and should be rewarded with a higher rating because of it. In Madden simulations he, along with the next player on this list, will probably perform very well in forcing turnovers. Alexander will also probably be a very good punt returner in Madden and may be the best on Green Bay’s roster.
Josh Jackson – 76
Jackson is a very different corner than Alexander. He specializes in playing off the receiver a bit more, but can still make the big plays when necessary. I personally am curious to see how Jackson would rate as a safety if his zone coverage attribute is high, since the safety position weighs it more than the corner position. No matter what position you play him, the Packers have a talented young secondary to build around. Suddenly the defense looks like it could become a strength for the Packers.
Kevin King – 73
King had a lackluster rookie year by not recording a single interception and missing several games due to injury. He had his moments and has Packer fans excited, but he’s probably going to be the fourth best corner on the roster. He has great size and speed, and a strong start to the year could boost his rating significantly. Especially since he’s probably going to get more run in real life than his spot on the Madden depth chart would suggest.
