GREEN BAY – Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander is in the "Top 100" for the first time.

Alexander came in at No. 41 as just over half of the NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2021" was released on Sunday.

Alexander, a first-round draft pick in 2018, was named to his first Pro Bowl a year ago and earned second-team Associated Press All-Pro honors as well.

He led the team with 13 passes defensed in 2020 and intercepted one pass in the regular season before adding two interceptions against Tampa Bay QB Tom Brady in the NFC title game.

Alexander was named to the PFWA's All-Rookie Team in 2018 and was a Pro Bowl alternate in his second season.

The "Top 100" list is compiled by player votes and has become an annual ranking on NFL Network. Players ranked 1-40 have yet to be revealed.
