Let’s say nice things about Jaire. The future of our defensive backfield.

Let us appreciate what he actually does this year, when he does it. Actions - Words - you know what I mean.

And @FinneasGage was the one worried about clogging up the forum with pointless threads.

Hey I'll give him some props.  Came in as a rook and kicked butt.  Kid plays tough and is excellent in coverage.  1st year in and already our best corner.  Love his attitude as well.  Great pick just a great pick.

Hope he can avoid the minor strains this year .. need him on the field every week.  He's a legit pro bowl talent if he can stay on the field.

I would add the word "present" in front of future - he's already arrived and kicking butts all over the place.

Clark and Alexander are our budding stars.  I know this rarely happens, but if Gary and Savage somehow turned out to be probowl caliber players too, our defense could be top 5 in short order!

Feels like JA is over-appreciated here tbh.

Promising rookie.  Probably can't ever cover a tall fast WR though.

Agree whole-heartedly with the first and second statements.

Disagree with the third. Not gonna sweat him going up against Julio Jones anymore than I'm gonna sweat any other DB. His feet and hops will make up for a lot of the height issues.

Other packers DB?

Rather have ____list your favorite #1 Corner here____ on Jones than JA because other guys are way more accomplished.  JA is still 60-70% potential, and one day *could* be one of those players.

My issue is folks here are considering him an NFL top corner going into the year.  He's not Xavien Howard/Patrick Peterson, and he might never smell that level of play.  But he *might* get there, so there's definitely optimism.

No bigger advocate than me that Alexander isn't there yet.

No bigger advocate than me that there's a bit lower of a celing due to the lack of length when you compare him to the top end corners in this league.

I'm also a big believer that some times a good damn football player is going to get the job done more often than not, even if the matchup isn't ideal.

I could be wrong, but I think Alexander will make the biggest jump this year on the team.  He already had some top moments as a rookie, but with the experience he picked up last year coupled with an improved pass rush he's got a chance to be a true standout.  He's going to trust his talent a little more as well and make some plays on the ball.  I think the sky is the limit for him.
