11. Cincinnati Bengals
Devin White, LB, LSU
Preston Brown ain’t it, Vontaze Burfict gotta go and the Bengals linebacking woes continue. Cincy needs its quarterback of the defense and White has the kind of upside. White is a tone-setter on the second level but also offers the ability to win in space and provides excellent range.
12. Green Bay Packers
Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State
The Packers have taken some strides defensively this season but still lack any sort of dynamic edge rushing presence despite having an exciting interior group that consistently generates penetration. Investing assets at edge rusher would be a wise move this offseason and Burns has the toolbox to become a highly prolific pass rusher in the NFL.
13. Miami Dolphins
Tyler Biadasz, iOL, Wisconsin
The Dolphins offense has been limited by inept interior offensive line play for several seasons and Biadasz is the type of talent that can be a game-changer for a front five. With the coveted Wisconsin pedigree, Biadasz offers outstanding play strength, mobility and football intelligence that destines him for a career littered with Pro Bowl Honors.
14. Atlanta Falcons
Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
Turning things around shouldn’t be difficult and the silver lining in a lost season for Atlanta is it has an opportunity to add top talent to an already stacked roster. Oliver is a true blue chip prospect and is a dynamic interior penetrator. Whether Grady Jarrett is brought back or not, Oliver would be a tremendous addition.
15. Washington Redskins
N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State
The Redskins are in desperate need of an alpha receiver and that’s exactly what they would get in Harry. He’s a big-bodied target that has the ability to win vertically down the field but is also elusive to create after the catch. Harry would nicely round out Washington’s weaponry.
16. Carolina Panthers
Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida
The Panthers are in desperate need of more speed off the edge defensively and Polite can immediately fix that problem. Polite racked up 19.5 tackles for loss, 11 sacks and 6 forced fumbles for Florida this year, showcasing impressive burst, hand usage and bend to beat offensive tackles.
17. Cleveland Browns
Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia
Continuing to add weapons in the passing game around rookie sensation Baker Mayfield should be a high priority for Cleveland and Ridley offers exciting traits. His ball skills, body control, route running and length are top traits that should make Ridley a dynamic NFL playmaker.
18. Minnesota Vikings
Cody Ford, OT, Oklahoma
The Vikings offensive line continues to be a weakness and with what division rival Chicago is building on defense, getting things right up front must become a priority for Minnesota. Ford is a gigantic tackle with dominant play strength and rare mobility for his size.
19. Tennessee Titans
Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State
Tennessee took major strides in building the front 7 last offseason and that should continue in the coming months. Simmons is an exciting interior defensive line prospect that plays with an unrelenting motor, impressive play strength, nuanced technique and the tenacity needed to beat blocks and make plays near the line of scrimmage.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers
Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
The coverage blunders for the Steelers defense have been completely out of control and it’s time to for those to end. Murphy is a smooth corner with explosive athletic ability, ball skills and route recognition skills needed to become a shutdown guy in the NFL.
