1. Cornerback

Former first-round pick Eric Stokes isn't guaranteed a starting job when he returns from injury, which highlights the Packers' impressive depth at cornerback.

Jaire Alexander is coming off his second All-Pro and Pro Bowl season. He broke up 14 passes last year, the second-most of his career. One criticism of Alexander's play in previous years was that he didn't make enough interceptions. He changed that in 2022 with a career-best five picks.

Rasul Douglas is a quality starting cornerback. The Packers experimented with him in the slot last season and he struggled, but Douglas got back to his best when he returned to the outside. He has an impressive nine interceptions over the past two seasons.

Keisean Nixon will get an opportunity in the slot. He has looked comfortable in the role at Packers organized team activities this spring.

Stokes struggled last season before getting injured but he had a tremendous rookie year, breaking up 14 passes in 16 games. He will compete for a starting job when he returns from injury.

The Packers will have good competition for the final roster spots this summer. They have great depth at cornerback, and their top four at the position is as good as any in the league.
