  • Traded draft picks are becoming the norm

While this decision was a bit on the questionable side as many believed Alexander could have slid to 27, they did not give up much for it except a third round pick in this draft.

The Packers first had the 14th overall pick in 1962 (it was the final pick in the first round), and used it on LSU fullback Earl Gros.

Washington State quarterback Luke Falk was selected in the sixth round of the National Football League draft Saturday by the Tennessee Titans, who made him the 199th overall pick.

"At the end of the day, I'll do whatever it takes to get a chance to make the 53-man roster", Gibson said.

The second day of the NFL Draft takes place on Friday. Scott had just five punts returned as a senior, crediting the success to a renewed focus on hang time. He snagged eight interceptions and returned two of them for touchdowns. After the draft had completed, the Packers were right there with an offer. The general rule is a second-round pick this year is worth a first-rounder next year, and New Orleans paid that price. Alexander's father said on December 20 that he received a second-round draft grade and wasn't in a hurry to make a decision on his future. Though he only spent one year as a starter for Iowa, he proved he could handle top competition.

This is a guy the Vikings had to think might fall to them at No. 30.

Whether you believe in fate, destiny, God, the universe, nothing at all, or another entity, deity, or philosophy altogether, we can all agree: It's amusing how things work out. 6 picks later with pick #45, the Green Bay Packers selected Cornerback Josh Jackson. "Even being able to build a relationship with someone like him, being able to catch the ball from him and trust and know where the ball is where it needs to be without me even asking, that's a great feeling, a great opportunity". Cards fans expected big things out of the ball-hawking corner in his junior season, but injuries kept him out from most of the season, and really hampering the Cards chances of making a big-time bowl. During that 14-year streak, this is the deepest the draft had gone until the first Missouri player came off the board.
