They've made a trade with the Green Bay Packers to move up to number 14 overall.
Two first round-caliber cornerbacks for their beaten-down defense.
A three-star prospect from Charlotte, N.C., Rocky River High School, Alexander had been committed to SC but flipped to the Cardinals after an official visit in early December. Another college tackle who will slide over to guard in the NFL.
Gibson was hoping to get drafted but did not get selected in the first seven rounds. And one very big one that it didn't. The team followed up their selection of Jaire Alexander in the first round with yet another cornerback in round two. Jackson could be labeled a "one-year wonder", but 27 passes defensed in a single season isn't random.

The Green Bay Packers and first-year general manager Brian Gutekunst are getting high marks for their work during the 2018 National Football League draft. Finding a difference maker at edge rusher won't be easy at this stage of the draft, but the Packers could look to add more depth there. If they don't get one on Day 2, there's a chance this draft could fail to yield any immediate help there.
Alexander had a fantastic year for the University of Louisville in 2016. "How it fell, when certain players were off the board, we decided we were going to stick and pick, or move back". If it's not there, it's not there.
That's just the way Gutekunst would want it. During that streak, this is the furthest into the draft it has taken for the first MU player to be selected. They didn't, presumably because he's a small-school project who isn't the pass-rushing lock that Chubb is. Even if you assume the Saints win the Super Bowl next season and end up with the No. 32 pick, the Packers still got 1,303 points of value for giving up 1,100 points. Green Bay has questions on the right side of the line.
Shaquem Griffin drafted by Seahawks
Carroll said the intent is to start Griffin at weakside linebacker and let him use his speed in different areas on the field. So I anxious I felt too strongly about Shaquem to have an objective view of his value as a potential draft pick.
Jackson needs to do a better job changing direction and could play the game more physically given that he has the size to do so. That has left the Packers' pass-rush corps dangerously thin as offseason workouts begin. I think you can see that in his play. "Roster building is a 365-day-a-year job, so that's something we'll continue to focus on". "It was a great experience, but I'm glad it is over worth now that I know I have a team".
Whether you believe in fate, destiny, God, the universe, nothing at all, or another entity, deity, or philosophy altogether, we can all agree: It's amusing how things work out.
Coach Mike McCarthy didn't appear anxious.
"The reality is we drafted 11 players", McCarthy said.
