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.

The Packers first had the 14th overall pick in 1962 (it was the final pick in the first round), and used it on LSU fullback Earl Gros.

Davenport, a 6-foot-6, 246-pound defensive end from University of Texas-San Antonio, was projected to go slightly later in the draft, but not by a much. Still, he managed to six of seven games with one interceptions, 19 tackles and four passes broken up. Green Bay selected Iowa's Josh Jackson with the No. 45 pick. "I think they're a great fit for how we want to play defense, and I'm excited to get those guys involved". The team has a lot of holes to fill, though, so there is added pressure for John Schneider to have a successful draft.

Overall, they hit on every need and have some players who could make a real impact in the upcoming season. He pulled in eight interceptions and recorded an nearly equally as impressive 18 passes defended, thus displaying his elite ability to make plays on the ball.

Curiously, Alexander said he didn't have any significant contact with the Packers before the draft.

Alright, Packers. We're still awake, and you have our attention.

"My heart burst", Moore said on a conference call about getting a phone call from the Packers.

"The Packers showed some interest the last few days and they were the first ones to have an offer ready", said Gibson, who is from Beardsley, Minn., and grew up a Minnesota Vikings fan.

In the end, Jaire Alexander has excellent ball-skills and is improving in coverage.

Green Bay entered Thursday night with the No. 14 pick, but Gutekunst acquired the Saints' first-round pick (No. 27), a fifth-round pick (No. 147) and the team's first-round selection in 2019. "But did Gutekunst really need to draft a punter and a long snapper?" He's one, when you watch him play, you can feel him close space when the ball's in the air, both playing forward and backward.
