Cornerback: Jaire Alexander

One of the best cornerbacks in the league, Jaire Alexander leads the way in the Packers' secondary. Alexander has been an All-Pro twice in the past three seasons. In 2022, he made 14 pass defenses and five interceptions.

Cornerback: Rasul Douglas

Experimenting with Rasul Douglas in the slot didn't go as well as hoped last season, but once the Packers moved him back outside, he got back to his best. Douglas is a game-changer, having made nine interceptions over the past two seasons.

Cornerback: Eric Stokes

Eric Stokes struggled before suffering a season-ending injury in 2022, but he showed Pro Bowl potential in his rookie season. According to Pro Football Reference, Stokes allowed just 49.5% of passes to be completed in his coverage in 2021. He also made 14 pass defenses.

Safety: Darnell Savage

Darnell Savage enters a huge season, especially as it's a contract year. At his best, Savage showed Pro Bowl potential in 2019 and 2020, but he has been unable to build on that. He briefly lost his starting job last season but showed improvements late in the year when he was back in the starting lineup. Savage had an interception and two pass defenses in the final two games last season.

Safety: Rudy Ford

There will be competition for the starting job next to Savage, but Rudy Ford should be the frontrunner. He started six games for the Packers last season, making three pass defenses and three interceptions, and he forced a fumble.
