Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (WKOW) -

The Packers have aggressively addressed one of their biggest area of needs. The team followed up their selection of Jaire Alexander in the first round with yet another cornerback in round two. Green Bay selected Iowa's Josh Jackson with the No. 45 pick.

Jackson had a huge season with the Hawkeyes. The 6'0", 196-pounder started 13 games. He snagged eight interceptions and returned two of them for touchdowns. He also had 48 tackles. Jackson ran a 4.56-second forty-yard dash and posted a 38-inch vertical leap.

Jackson was a first-team All-Big Ten and All-American selection.
