ATLANTA, GA - SEPTEMBER 02: Derwin James
ATLANTA, GA - SEPTEMBER 02: Derwin James /
7 of 7

Iowa. Josey Jewell. 53. player. 16. Jewell is a smart, reliable inside linebacker who would bring some steadiness to the second level of the Bills defense. — Dan. Linebacker

It is important that Kansas City gives Pat Mahomes the talent at WR that he needs to succeed. Miller can play outside or in the slot. Adding him to Kelce and Tyreek Hill would give Mahomes a nice trio of targets. — Kyle. Wide Receiver. Memphis. Anthony Miller. 54. player. 124

Tight End. Penn State. Mike Gesicki. 55. player. 87. Gesicki is a ridiculous athlete and solid receiver who still needs to clean up certain aspects of his game, particularly his run blocking. He could eventually take the reigns from Greg Olsen in Carolina. — Dan

16. Baker is the latest version of the undersized LB that can run and cover. Buffalo is building an elite defense and Baker would give them some speed that they are missing. — Kyle. Linebacker. Ohio State. Jerome Baker. 56. player

Deon Cain. 57. player. 35. Cain is one of the more underrated receivers in this year’s draft class. He has downfield speed to take the top off a defense, but he can also work underneath routes just as effectively. He’d give Mariota another weapon on offense. — Dan. Wide Receiver. Clemson

Stanford. Justin Reid. 58. player. 44. Justin Reid is unique because he plays his role at safety really well, but might be even better matching up in the slot. He’s a chess piece that Atlanta can play in multiple roles. — Kyle. Safety

42. San Francisco could use a running back that can be just as effective in the passing game as he is running the ball. Despite his 230-pound frame, Freeman plays light on his feet and is a very good receiver out of the backfield. — Dan. Running Back. Oregon. Royce Freeman. 59. player

55. Phillips just feels like a Steeler. He might not be the most athletic guy, but he consistently wins with a high motor and intelligence. — Kyle. Defensive Line. Stanford. Harrison Phillips. 60. player

52. Chark adds speed and downfield ability to the Jaguars offense. After losing Allen Robinson to free agency, Jacksonville will need to spend several picks on the receiver position in the draft. — Dan. Wide Receiver. LSU. DJ Chark. 61. player

62. player. 60. Offensive line is one of the few weaknesses on the Vikings’ roster. Hernandez is a mauler-type guard. He would be a welcome addition to help open holes for a healthy Dalvin Cook. — Kyle. Offensive Guard. UTEP. Will Hernandez

player. 47. Brown can hold the point of attack on the edge or rush the passer as an interior defensive lineman. He has good burst off the line and could be a disruptive player for New England’s front seven. — Dan. Defensive Line. Virginia. Andrew Brown. 63

Carlton Davis. 64. player. 53. Davis is a steal at this point in the draft. He’s got a real chance to start in the league. He’s a natural press corner with experience against top competition in the SEC. — Kyle. Cornerback. Auburn
