Cornerback: Jaire Alexander

The Packers have made changes at cornerback, notably trading Rasul Douglas, but Jaire Alexander remains the CB1. He reminded everyone how good he was in last week's victory over the Los Angeles Rams. The two-time All-Pro is 26 years old with three years remaining on his contract after this season.

Cornerback: Carrington Valentine

It's hard to believe how impressive seventh-round rookie Carrington Valentine has been. He broke up three passes and almost made an interception last week, his first game as Rasul Douglas' replacement in the starting lineup. The Packers may have found a Day 3 draft steal. Hopefully, Eric Stokes also gets back to his best to provide competition on the outside.

Slot cornerback: Javon Bullard

Darnell Savage is a free agent, so the Packers turn to the draft and add another Georgia player to their defense, with safety/corner Javon Bullard in the third round. Bullard's best fit could actually be as a slot corner. He reads the game well and has made three interceptions and six pass defenses since the start of 2021.

Safety: Jeremy Chinn

Jeremy Chinn would be a dream free-agent signing for the Packers. He can play safety, slot corner, and even linebacker. The Packers could have him start at safety, but he could also replace Keisean Nixon in the slot. Chinn's versatility and coverage ability immediately helps Green Bay's secondary.

Safety: Rudy Ford

Rudy Ford has been outstanding since becoming a full-time starter this season. He has made four pass defenses and two interceptions in seven games. According to Pro Football Focus, Ford has allowed a passer rating of just 30.2 in coverage.
