Green Bay Packers select Round 1 projection Josh Jackson in Round 2

Green Bay Packers select Round 1 projection Josh Jackson in Round 2

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. 18, 147 and a first-round pick next season - and drafted the talented Alexander.

Jackson stands 6-0 and weighs in at 196 pounds. Jackson led the nation with eight interceptions last season.

I thought for sure the Packers might trade their final pick of the draft to move up and grab a holder, but Scott apparently did some of that with the Crimson Tide during his career. But if so, watch the trade gymnastics from Brian Gutekunst and company, just as they did it twice on Day 1.

The rest of the first round, as well as all of the draft action Friday, will be carried live on the official home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX. This will prevent Alexander from being "buried" under a slew of talent when he's actually ready to play. But at least they have one on day two.

Nobody can say they didn't see this one coming.

Curiously, Alexander said he didn't have any significant contact with the Packers before the draft. "While his height was not a deterrent for Gutekunst - "I'm a big believer in heart over height", Alexander said, "(and) I don't pay attention to size or anything like that" - his special-teams abilities were a bonus. After years of being one of the last picks in the first round, they finally had an opportunity to be near the top.




Anytime you use a draft pick on a kicker or a punter, it can open some eyes.

"I think you're always looking for bigger targets", McCarthy said. Gibson played in the East-West Shrine game in January in Florida, becoming the first Dragon to ever play in that all-star game.

Jackson is an impressive corner with excellent length and ball-skills.

Whether you believe in fate, destiny, God, the universe, nothing at all, or another entity, deity, or philosophy altogether, we can all agree: It's amusing how things work out. "He tackles, he finds the ball in the air".

Brian Gutekunst wrapped up his first National Football League draft as General Manager of the Green Bay Packers by taking a third wide receiver late in the sixth round and finally addressing the pass rush in the 7th along with an unprecedented draft choice.
