Look for sophomore pro Eric Stokes to have a breakout season for the Green Bay Packers.
If ever there was a player who had a breakout season Green Bay packers Squad, look no further than 2021 first-round cornerback Eric Stokes.
Not only does Stokes play the opposite of a tried and tested commodity in Jaire Alexander, but he’s an absolute…DAWG! This former Georgia star really made his mark during the drafting process two years ago, in addition to starring in the ever-deep SEC. This is why so many people get so high on Stokes before his second NFL season with the Packers. He’s going to break out.
When NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and former Pro Bowl defenseman Samari Rolle think so highly of Stokes, you better believe this guy is about to be a superstar for Green Bay.
Look out for Eric Stokes to become this year’s Green Bay Packers star
From a purely talented perspective, Stokes has everything you could wish for in a defender. He has size, speed, ball skills and all the intangibles. But perhaps the best thing about his game is that Stokes has shown he can play alongside other great players. He did that in Georgia and will continue to do that in Green Bay. With up to four more years of contract, he’s the real deal.
For Green Bay to have great success this season, the Packers will need to lean on their defense a little more than usual. They may have their focus on the two-time reigning NFL MVP in Aaron Rodgers, but who is he going to throw the football to anyway? Exactly. Rodgers will make boys stars, but the Packers are getting there super bowl if their defense is not of great quality.
The good news is that promotions from Alexander and Stokes should see the Packers rise at the back of their defense. If they can generate a consistent pass rush and stay tough on run defense, their side of the ball could be good enough to help Green Bay win multiple playoff games. Regardless, Green Bay showed everyone how to blast the #1 seeds like no one else.
Make sure Stokes is as good as advertised in his professional season with the Packers.
