Wolf Corner Drafting
The Green Bay Packers have had some hiccups in their corner drafting in recent years. They’ve selected two corners in the first two rounds in the past three seasons. One has been traded away for a draft pick, while the other has struggled to live up to expectations.
The NFL has gotten a lot more athletic with wide receivers. But the Packers have a major need for cornerbacks. So, they’re drafting one with their first three picks.
First, let’s look at the ol’ fashioned top five cornerbacks. In the past, the best of the bunch has been Damarious Randall. He was a plus athlete and was expected to lead the Packers’ secondary for years. However, his lack of size was an issue in the slot.
The next best draft pick is Marquez Valdez-Scantling. He has been a hardworking worker and has become a decent blocker. His numbers have been down lately, though.
Another notable pick is Quinn Rollins. He is a ball hawk with limited college experience. His only season in college football was in the Mid-American Conference. A former safety, he ran a 4.59-second 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine.
On the other hand, the Packer’s most recent draft class is a little more forgettable. In fact, the lone starter from the class is a sixth round guard.
There are several other roster needs that the Packers have to fill. Some of these include a new quarterback and a solid wide receiver.
