"Interesting maiden draft for GM Brian Gutekunst".

The Packers took care of needs on the defensive side of the ball in the first three rounds of the draft. He is the first MU receiver to be selected in the draft since 2015, when the Rams picked Bud Sasser in the sixth round.

"We want as much competition as possible".

As for the receivers, Missouri's J'Mon Moore, South Florida's Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Notre Dame's Equanimeous St. Brown are all in the 6-3 to 6-5 range with some speed, particularly Valdes-Scantling. That doesn't mean the 21-year old is still a superb prospect though. "No one knows. All I could do was pray and hope they selected me". He also only allowed 22.9 percent completion rate.

"The athleticism, I'll keep going back and that. and the toughness, the ability to go down" to the line of scrimmage, Wojciechowski said of Burks.

Opportunities abound in the receiving group behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb after veteran Jordy Nelson was cut in the offseason.

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

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

Green is fortunate he is making the jump to the National Football League in an era where "position-less" players are on the rise.

Not every roster need was addressed.

"This caught me by surprise, honestly", Alexander said in a conference call with Wisconsin reporters from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Plays bigger than his smaller stature. He leaned on his predecessor, Ted Thompson, at times.

"This is not about filling holes". Though Matthews isn't the dynamic outside pass rusher he once was and the injury-prone Perry misses too many games, they remain above-average players when healthy. A team known for moving back in the first round under general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll, the Seahawks once again moved back from the 18th pick, sending that pick to the Green Bay Packers. And that will obviously change as the day goes on, as the process starts and teams make moves after identifying specific players.

Of course, instant grades are a unsafe, often futile exercise - we won't really know how good a draft class is for several years - but the draft experts can look at a combination of value, needs and fits to give an early assessment. They wanted a corner and get a darn good one.

History eventually will be the judge, but either way, that judgment won't be able to claim Gutekunst got distracted or overwhelmed by it all.

The Anaheim, Calif. native made a decision to leave Notre Dame a year early instead of trying to come back and improve his game.
