The Green Bay Packers turned their attention to the offensive side of the ball in day two of the NFL Draft, held Friday in Cleveland.
Second-round selection Josh Myers may look familiar to Packers fans. An interior lineman from Ohio State, the 62nd overall pick may be directly replacing Corey Linsley, an interior lineman out of Ohio State the Packers lost to the Los Angeles Chargers in free agency this offseason.
Speaking of familiar looks, the Packers added a second A. Rodgers to their roster on Friday: Clemson wide receiver Amari Rodgers, who they took 85th overall.
The third-round selection was part of the Tigers' perennial powerhouse program and is the son of 1998 national championship quarterback Tee Martin of Tennessee. He specializes as a slot receiver but has played multiple positions and returned kicks at Clemson.
Also, Friday, the Packers exercised the fifth-year option of standout cornerback Jaire Alexander, according to multiple reports.
Alexander will receive $13.294 million in 2022 in the final season of his rookie deal.
Alexander was a Pro Bowl selection last season when he had 51 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble.
The 18th overall pick in 2018, Alexander has 175 tackles, four interceptions, three fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks in 44 career contests (42 starts).
Alexander had seven college interceptions at Louisville (2015-17) before being tabbed in the first round by Green Bay.
