Jaire Alexander came into the NFL in 2018 and has talked the talk since day one. However, in the NFL, talking the talk isn't enough. Jaire Alexander has backed it up every step of the way. He has been named to two All-Pro teams and has also been selected to two Pro Bowls.
The Packers have hit on their first-round pick, and Jaire Alexander is undoubtedly one of the best corners in the entire league. But where exactly does he stack up amongst the NFL's best?
Where does Jaire Alexander Rank Among NFL CBs?
Other Top Corners
It has been a long time since the Packers have had a corner that is in the conversation to be the best in the entire league. Other candidates for the top spot are Jalen Ramsey of the Miami Dolphins, Sauce Gardner of the New York Jets, Darius Slay of the Philadelphia Eagles and Patrick Surtain II of the Broncos.
All of the top defensive backs have the accolades and stats to hold the title of best corner in the NFL. In 2022, the First Team All-Pro corners were Sauce Gardner and Patrick Surtain II. Jaire Alexander was named to the Second All-Pro team. Alexander, however, set a career-high with five interceptions in 2022.
Why Jaire Deserves the Top Spot
Jaire Alexander is one of the few players on this list who doesn't get to play as much man coverage as others. This is not because Jaire isn't capable but rather because Green Bay's scheme doesn't call for it. The Packers play a lot of zone coverage and rarely let corners travel or follow. However, toward the end of the season, the Packers' defense started playing more man-to-man coverage and Alexander continued to shine.
Perhaps his most memorable moment of the 2022 season was when he went toe to toe with Justin Jefferson in a must-win game for the Packers. Jaire Alexander talked a lot of trash heading into the week 17 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. He backed it up by holding Jefferson without a catch when they were matched up against each other.
Jefferson set the league on fire this year with a phenomenal season. Jaire Alexander put that fire out in week 17, but Jefferson wasn't the only wideout who couldn't crack the code against Alexander.

Jaire Alexander can perform against the best wide receivers on a weekly basis. He does not get as many opportunities in man coverage as other top DBs. If he were to play in a defense where he gets to shadow the opposing team's No. 1 weekly, maybe he would get more attention from All-Pro voters.
