Jaire Alexander becomes a Pro Bowler

From the first time I saw him, Jaire Alexander became one of my favorite Packers players. He was something the Packers were lacking.

He was brash, confident, and had a swagger about him that made you take notice.

He flashed that in his first year. A big game against Brandin Cooks put him on the map. And then in year two, he locked down his side of the field and made quarterbacks think twice about throwing that way.

I think this year, his third, Jaire takes an even bigger leap and becomes a Pro Bowler.

We haven’t been able to see much of Alexander so far this offseason. The current restrictions ensure that, but I have no doubt as soon as the game in San Fransisco ended, he went right to work preparing for 2020.

With the Packers’ pass rush looking to take its game up a notch, Alexander should have plenty of opportunities to add to his stats and prove he’s a top cornerback in the league.

The Packers have a very talented and young secondary. Darnell Savage, Adrian Amos, and Kevin King, along with Alexander, could make the Packers’ pass defense number one in the league.

If that’s the case, my guess is it will be Alexander that makes sure they get there and earns his first trip to the NFL’s all-star game.
