Scrappy player with a slightly undersized frame. A two-year starter who recorded 16 pass breakups on 52 targets this past season, according to Pro Football Focus.
Struggles with press coverage and often seems to be in chase mode with receivers. Teams will target him in the run game due to his diminutive stature.
Has the frame to be a slot corner, but will struggle to make an impact on the field
Green Bay needed to add depth to a cornerback room where just one player is under contract in 2022. The Packers selected Eric Stokes in Round 1 and now added Jean-Charles in the fifth.
Green Bay is also bringing back its top three corners and starting safeties from a year ago. So with the depth added this weekend, its secondary should be a major strength.
