The Green Bay Packers announced Tuesday that they’ve signed first-round CB Jaire Alexander to a four-year rookie contract.

This leaves just two unsigned draft picks for the Packers including:

Rd Pick Player Pos. Status
1 18 Jaire Alexander CB Signed
2 45 Josh Jackson CB
3 88 Oren Burks LB
4 133 J’Mon Moore WR Signed

Alexander, 21, was taken with the No. 18 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft by the Packers. According to OverTheCap.com, he receives a $12,092,586 contract that includes a $6,874,608 signing bonus.

The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Packers to pick up in 2021. It’s worth mentioning that the fifth-year option is only guaranteed for injury and won’t prevent the two parties from working on a long-term extension.

During his three-year college career at Louisville, Alexander recorded 77 total tackles, two tackles for loss, seven interceptions, 15 pass defenses, one fumble recovery, and one forced fumble.
