Chandon Sullivan

Chandon Sullivan was called for pass interference on the first pass thrown his way. After that, he played as well as anyone on defense.

Sullivan broke up no less than three passes thrown his way and handled his side of the field well all night.

Like with the receivers, Sullivan finds himself in at a deep position.

Jaire Alexander and Tramon Williams are locked into two of the top three spots. Kevin King, when healthy, can be a lockdown corner. On a side note, King was seen sprinting before the game, meaning he might be close to returning. Josh Jackson returned from injury this week and Tony Brown has made a great case for playing time in the event of injury.

The Packers find themselves in a very good place in a pass-happy league. They have more corners deserving of playing time than they have positions on the field. Injuries will happen and King has yet to prove he can stay healthy. The Packers will have to find a way to keep all the talent they can at the cornerback position.

Sullivan will get one more chance to shine. The starters will likely be spectators till September, giving him a great chance to lock down what is likely one of the final spots on the roster.
