Just based on how raw King is I'd assume that he'd come off the bench as the third cornerback, but an outside guy.


Outside guy. I think House and Randall are our starters opening day vs Seattle tbh


Can we now please let this rookie come in, shine and be so good he the opening day starter on the other teams #1 WR? It happens right? Been so long since we've had a rookie come in and star on defense. Do we consider Clay to have been that?

Usually takes CBs a year or 2 to hit their stride I think.

Don't don't Marcus Peters shine as a rookie?

I don't know how this got started, but this simply isn't true. It CERTAINLY isn't true for the Packers. Randall and Rollins had big impacts their rookie years. Casey Hayward had 6 interceptions for us in his rookie year. We won a Super Bowl when Sam Shields was a rookie.

Somebody who didn't want us to take a cornerback with our first pick this year flung the notion that it takes corners until year 2 to hit their stride and somehow it stuck. It's not true, and it's less true in Green Bay than it is on 25 other teams.

His number is 20 according to Packers.com.

Justo told his clones that we redshirt our DBs and everyone ate it up I think Laughing

This was my favorite pick. It's nice when your favorite pick nets you another solid pick by trading down, you still get your guy, and he's our highest guy taken. I could tell the Packers really loved this pick because they were all smiles and that rarely happens in their Draft room. We got a 6'3" CB who is also one of the most agile CB's in the entire Draft, and that is an absolutely ridiculous combination. That 4th turned into Vince Biegel as well, who is a solid prospect that learned in the 3-4 Defense and can play multiple LB spots.

IIRC, Clay was splitting time with Poppinga, Kampman, and Jones at the beginning of the year.

My guess is we put House on their #1 WR, Randall on their #2 WR, and Rollins against their slot. King either fills in when someone struggles or when an injury hits. We'll see, though.

At the start, yes. But it didn't take long before he took over a much larger role.

Starting TC, House and Randall are the likely #1 boundary corners. King and Gunter in the mix for the #3 boundary CB.

King will have an opportunity push for playing time over both House, Randall and Gunter on the boundary. I see Rollins as the slot #1 and in emergency situations seeing reps on boundary.

The good teams don't usually have rookie "starters" week one. We might get some snaps from him in dime or something, but that should be it.
