Stokes is an athletic corner that brings both man and zone coverage capabilities. He's smooth in man coverage and able to stick with bigger and smaller receivers alike, for the most part. Has a tendency to allow the receiver to dictate the terms and then he's caught trailing often. Good in zone coverage and is constantly reading the QBs eyes. Once the QB releases the ball, he's able to flip and drive to the ball. Good hip fluidity, but it might be too fast for his feet. Is consistently seen falling to the ground in man or zone coverage when a receiver makes a sharp cut. Decent ball skills to be able to get a hand in at the last second and read the receivers' eyes, but struggles to get his head turned around to locate the football. Had a couple of penalties on tape due to this area. Non-willing participant in run support or tackling. Tends to stand still and wait for the contact to come versus driving and mixing it up with the ball-carrier. Great straight line speed and was able to stick with Devonta Smith frequently deep downfield. Could struggle if let on an island for too long, but has the speed, strength, and flexibility to match up with a wide variety of players. Most likely a Day 2 pick.

Eric Stokes officially inks rookie deal with the Packers

Green Bay Packers rookie CB Eric Stokes officially signed his contract with the team on Wednesday, per Packers' GM Brian Gutekunst.

Fantasy Impact

The rookie cornerback out of the University of Georgia was selected as the 29th overall pick by the Green Bay Packers in the 2021 NFL Draft. Stokes measured impressive speed and agility at his Pro Day, logging a 4.31 40-yard dash and 4.36 shuttle while showcasing a 38.5 inch vertical. The Packers already boast a pair of young and talented cornerbacks in Jaire Alexander and Kevin King but Stokes could quickly earn a role as the nickel corner, replacing current Packers' NB Chandon Sullivan.
