NFL Draft 2018: Five potential first-round surprises

As for the details of the Seahawks trade, they dealt their first-round and seventh-round picks to the Packers in exchange for a later first-round pick, a third-round pick, and a sixth-round pick. Then at No. 18 he took Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander, a player they probably would have picked 14th.

Madison is a 6-foot-5, 308 pounder who was a four-year starter at Washington State. Jackson led the nation with eight interceptions last season.

The two-time NFL MVP got help in the passing game on the third day of the NFL draft after the Packers prioritized pass defense in the early rounds.

"They just told me to get ready to get over the Green Bay and learn the playbook", Gibson said.

The second day of the NFL Draft takes place on Friday.

When the proceedings were over, general manager Brian Gutekunst's first draft class was notable for how many bases it covered.

"We all know the situation as far as getting depth at that position and we definitely did that today", scout Alonzo Dotson said.

Curiously, Alexander said he didn't have any significant contact with the Packers before the draft. The Packers is the absolute best place that Josh would've landed, and we are all so glad, even if you aren't a Packers fan. That left last year's second-round pick, Kevin King, as the Packers' top cornerback following an injury-shortened rookie year. Alexander's father said on December 20 that he received a second-round draft grade and wasn't in a hurry to make a decision on his future.

Yet he has hugely impressive burst off the ball and excels at bending his body to turn the corner. The Packers sent the first pick in the fourth round - the 101st overall - and a fifth-round selection to the Carolina Panthers to take Burks.

However, the Packers stuck to their guns and got an extra first round pick out of next year's draft for their troubles. On the dark side, they waited too long to find an edge rusher, as well as depth for in the trenches on both sides of the ball.

It's tough to assign exact value to that 2019 first-rounder New Orleans gave up.
