Jaire Alexander took a big step up in his second season. If he can make another jump in year three, he could be an All-Pro in 2020.
Alexander goes after the ball and often breaks up passes. His 17 pass defenses tied for fourth-most in the NFL last season. What will take his game to the next level is if he can create more turnovers.
During a press conference on Zoom earlier this week, Alexander was asked about increasing his number of takeaways. He summed it up perfectly.
“Just catch the ball,” Alexander said.
Alexander had opportunities to make more interceptions last year but dropped four. He was close to making some huge turnovers for the Packers defense. If he can hang onto more interceptions this season, Alexander can take his game to the next level.
Alexander is a rising star and one of the best young cornerbacks in the NFL. After making a big step from year one to two, making a similar jump this season could see Alexander become an All-Pro and Pro Bowler for the first time in his career.
There are other players not included in this list who could be All-Pros in 2020. Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, and Preston Smith all come to mind.
