Seahawks swap with Packers, trading down in first round

Late draft rumors that could affect the Packers

While this decision was a bit on the questionable side as many believed Alexander could have slid to 27, they did not give up much for it except a third round pick in this draft.

Along with Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, the Packers then moved up into the third round to select linebacker Oren Burks.

The 6-foot-5, 308-pound Seattle native went to WSU as a tight end, but switched to offensive line early during his freshman year.

After trading down with the New Orleans Saints, the Packers were set to draft 27.

Green Bay's first of three fifth round picks was the first of the round and came from the trade that sent Damarious Randall to Cleveland.

"At the end of the day, I'll do whatever it takes to get a chance to make the 53-man roster", Gibson said. For another thing, he added to the competition at positions of critical need such as cornerback and wide receiver. This will prevent Alexander from being "buried" under a slew of talent when he's actually ready to play.

The rebels, known as Houthis, have previously fired missiles targeting the Saudi mainland, including the capital, Riyadh . Yemen's Shiite rebels say they have fired eight ballistic missiles at targets in Saudi Arabia's southern city of Jizan.

Jackson, who spent Thursday night in the green room without being selected, paced FBS football with eight interceptions in '17.

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

"You hope the guys embrace it and are pros about it and try to get better", scout Matt Malaspina said.

Kevin King, last year's second-round pick out of Washington, is the top returning cornerback after showing flashes of promise, but his season ended in December because of injury.

"I wouldn't use the term bypass", Gutekunst said. His first two years in college saw the cornerback as a risky punt returner. "I think they're a great fit to how we want to play defense". "Brown is a big receiver but moves well for that size and dropped just six passes in his college career". "He tackles, he finds the ball in the air".

With the 133rd overall pick in the fourth round, the Packers selected wide receiver J'Mon Moore, the only Mizzou player to attend the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine this year.
