Before the pads come on, the only thing coaches can judge in minicamp exists between the ears. Are these players picking up the scheme? Are they learning? And are they playing with confidence?
Packers coaches (and fans) should apparently breathe easy given where these rookie cornerbacks are in June. That can all change once training camp rolls around, but for now, new passing game coordinator Joe Whitt Jr. likes what he’s seen from Josh Jackson and Jaire Alexander.
“He’s constantly in that meeting room; he might be in that meeting room right now” Whitt says of Jackson. “He studies as much as any rookie we’ve ever had. He asks really good questions, he can play multiple positions, and then he is sticky. He understands concepts. He can get in and out of breaks. When he makes a mistake, he doesn’t make that same mistake again. I’ve been very pleased with him.
