Barring any more trades, the Seattle Seahawks have nine total 2018 National Football League draft picks this weekend.

"I think it's something you always try to address", Gutekunst said.

Moore, a two-time 1,000-yard receiver for the Tigers, is the first MU wideout drafted since the St. Louis Rams took Bud Sasser in the sixth round in 2015. Bud Dupree, a first-round pick in 2015, has not had the impact the Steelers would have expected, so Sweat would also make sense for Pittsburgh.

The setback set up an offseason of change. However, new general manager Brian Gutekunst passed on potential defensive stars Tremaine Edmunds, Derwin James and Marcus Davenport when he traded out of the No. 14 spot (where Davenport went to the Saints).

The Packers feel Alexander can play in the slot and on the outside in new coordinator Mike Pettine's defense.

Cornerback was the top priority.

Teams quickly fell back in love with Alexander through the combine and workouts, as he shot from a third round projection to a first round by the day of the draft.

Jackson is 65th selection under Kirk Ferentz, 9th second round selection, and 13th defensive back!

The focus shifted to offense for the late rounds on Saturday.

It includes portions of Berks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster and Montgomery counties. Meehan submitted a letter to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Governor Tom Wolf.

Jackson led the nation with eight interceptions last season as a junior at Iowa.

It will be interesting to see how he fits on the depth chart alongside Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison.

The additions of undrafted prospects Geronimo Allison and Michael Clark in recent years have given the Packers some different body types on the perimeter, and these three rookies markedly increase those kinds of options for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

"We all know the situation as far as getting depth at that position and we definitely did that today", scout Alonzo Dotson said. "The whole group gets better as each guy gets better". Jackson's draft stock likely took a hit with his average 40 time and unimpressive work in position drills.

In Alexander, the Packers get a versatile cover man who can play both outside and inside and also contribute as a punt returner.

"They have the most picks of any team in the Draft with 12 but they need to find some stout players on defence who they can rely on year in, year out".

The Packers picked offensive lineman Cole Madison from Washington State with the first pick in the fifth round. Brown fell to the 6th Round of the draft. But the Packers like his versatility and plan to use him at guard.

Green Bay's final choice was outside linebacker Kendall Donnerson from Southeast Missouri State. Still, after bypassing a thin group of edge rushers in the draft, he left the Packers with the same group of outside pass rushers they had past year. Vince Biegel should start the season healthy after missing the first seven games of his rookie season with a foot injury. "Brown is a big receiver but moves well for that size and dropped just six passes in his college career".
