Round 1

Picks 17-31
16. Commanders: Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State

With QB's all gone the Commanders go with their next biggest need and select a CB. This is a shock pick with Forbes over Porter and Banks but late rumors say Wash likes Forbes as CB 3

17. Steelers: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

Legacy pick here. CB is a big need for the Steelers and Porter is the best available. Pitt could go oline or WR here but I think they stay with the legacy.

18. Lions: Calijah Kancey, DT, Pittsburgh

Detroit continues to build the Defense and selects a DT to go with Hutchinson up front.

20. Giants: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Trade!! Giants give up 25, 3rd this year to go up ahead of the Chargers and get the WR they desperately need

25. Seahawks: Myles Murphy, DE, Clemson

Trade!! After trading back and collecting picks from the Giants. Sea continues to bolster the D and takes the edge to go with their DT first pick.

21. Chargers: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

DT WR are big needs but so is TE and Kincaid is too good to pass up at 21. He is like a WR 3 anyway.

22. Ravens: Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland

WR is still in play here, but, Banks is good value and CB is a huge need for the Ravens.

23. Vikings: Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee

Vikings need a bunch of help elsewhere but the chance to draft your QB of the future at 23 is to good to pass up. Hooker can rehab the knee and learn for a year while Cousin's wraps ups his stint in Minn.

24. Jaguars: Brian Branch, S, Alabama

They had a great year but also have a lot of holes to fill. I could go numerous places on Defense or O Line but I am just plugging in the BPA. Branch is weapon x and can be used at multiple positions.

26. Patriots: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

Trade!! Pats go back and pick up some picks. They could go a number of directions here CB Oline Dline etc.. but Johnston is too good to pass up. They need help outside and Johnston is big and can catch. He is raw but can be coached up.

27. Bills: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

I think Buff is planning on attacking one of the lines with this pick but with Addison falling to them he is a perfect fit. They have a big need at slot WR and also the jury is still out of Gabe Davis. Great value at position of need.

28. Bengals: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

Mayer is BPA and also a need for Cincy. They are weak at S but with Branch gone just no value there. Mayer is a complete TE and another weapon for Burrow.

29. Saints: Nolan Smith, OLB, Georgia

CB or Edge is probably the pick here. Smith may not drop this far but I had trouble placing him at a spot. Saints would love a pass rusher of his value to fall to 29.

30. Eagles: Adetomiwa Adebawore, DE, Northwestern

The Eagles typically go trenches and went Oline for there first pick now they go DT. Adebawore just seems like an Eagles type pick. would pair nice with Davis.

31. Chiefs: Will McDonald, DE, Iowa State

WR is an option but Reid does love pass rushers and Mcdonald is the BPA at that. Good Value at a position of need.

Picks 17-31
