1. Stephon Gilmore, Cornerback

The Packers are obviously confident in their cornerback room, as they didn't select a corner in the 2024 NFL Draft until the seventh round. Consider me a skeptic.

Jaire Alexander's play was up and down last season, but I'm confident he can have a bounceback year. I'm worried about the other guys. Eric Stokes has battled injuries and inconsistent play since his rookie year. Carrington Valentine had some nice moments as a rookie, but he has a lot to prove if he wants to be an every-down player. The other guys don't impress me much, either.

Adding Stephon Gilmore would definitely take away snaps from some of the youngsters, but it's worth the risk. He may not be the corner he was once, but he's as good once, as he ever was. Adding a veteran like him to the locker room can give the younger guys a mentor and boost their play on the field. The Packers' defense needs to figure out how to stop underachieving and a piece to the puzzle could be a savvy veteran.
