The Green Bay Packers addressed a major need in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft by taking Georgia cornerback Eric Stokes, who gives the roster a potential long-term starter opposite Jaire Alexander.

With a high pick invested at cornerback, the Packers can turn their attention to other potential need positions on Day 2. The team holds picks No. 62 and No. 92.

Here’s a look at the best available players at the team’s need positions entering Friday:
