21. Seattle Seahawks: Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State
The Seahawks could use some help along their O-line, and Risner would be an ideal addition. Risner has the ability to play multiple positions and could be a Day 1 starter at either Tackle or Guard. Both of Seattle’s 2018 starting Guards (J.R. Sweezy & D.J. Fluker) are set to be Free Agents, the Seahawks would be smart to address the offensive line early in the Draft.
22. Baltimore Ravens: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State
The Ravens success last year was built on their stout defense. Unfortunately for Baltimore, a few of their best pieces will be leaving. Za’Darius Smith, Terrell Suggs, and C.J. Mosley are all Unrestricted Free Agents and will likely be somewhere else soon. It makes a lot of sense for the Ravens to add an EDGE rusher early in the Draft and Brian Burns would be a great fit. Burns helped his stock greatly after his showing at the NFL Combine.
23. Houston Texans: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
The Texans would be very fortunate if Greedy Williams was available when they picked here, and if he is they shouldn’t have to think twice about their selection. Williams is widely regarded as the top CB in this class and he fills an instant need for Houston.
24. Oakland Raiders (via CHI): Jaylon Ferguson, EDGE, Louisiana Tech
The Raiders defense has a lot of needs. While in this scenario they did draft Quinnen Williams, they still need an EDGE defender to try and replace Khalil Mack. I would not be surprised at all if the Raiders take at least two, if not three, defensive prospects in the First Round. Ferguson had great production at a smaller school, but he should be able to translate into a solid pass rusher at the NFL level.
25. Philadelphia Eagles: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia
There’s no surprise that I mocked a CB to the Eagles; that is most definitely their most pressing need. Deandre Baker was a playmaker at Georgia and has plenty of big-time experience. The Eagles are surely trying to compete now and adding a savvy and young Corner like Baker would be a great move.
26. Indianapolis Colts: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
The Colts were surely the biggest surprise in the league last year. They had a truly tremendous year and look to build on their 2018 season. The Colts could use some playmakers on their offense. They found success behind Andrew Luck and one of the league’s best offensive lines, but now they need to add some playmakers. A.J. Brown is a polished route runner and offers value as a possession receiver. Brown does his best work out of the slot and he would be a great addition to a growing Colts offense.
