Cornerbacks (6)

Jaire Alexander, Rasul Douglas, Eric Stokes, Keisean Nixon, Corey Ballentine, Carrington Vallentine

Who's ready to see Corey Ballentine and Carrington Vallentine play together?

When fully healthy, cornerback is a strength for the Packers. All-Pro Jaire Alexander is one of the best in the league, Rasul Douglas is a solid starter, and Eric Stokes has huge upside. Stokes is recovering from a season-ending injury. Hopefully, he will be ready to return by training camp.

The Packers drafted Carrington Vallentine in the seventh round, who is a developmental cornerback with the potential to become a good player. His role in year one could be mostly on special teams.

Green Bay has good depth at cornerback, and it was tough to narrow it down to six. Shemar Jean-Charles has an excellent chance of making the Packers' 53-man roster. He could easily win a spot on the roster ahead of Ballentine or Vallentine, or Green Bay could keep an additional corner.

Alexander, Douglas, Stokes, and Keisean Nixon will play the majority of the snaps on defense. The final couple of spots could be determined by who is best suited to playing on special teams.

The Packers didn't make many changes at cornerback in the draft, and they didn't need to.
