. Wide Reciever. SMU. Courtland Sutton. 16. player. 26

Michael Crabtree was a nice off-season addition, but he’s on the wrong side of thirty and isn’t going to be a long-term solution at receiver.

Courtland Sutton will need some time to develop before he potentially becomes a true NFL number one. Having Crabtree on the other side of the field will help.

So will having Joe Flacco as a quarterback.

13. . Tackle. Notre Dame. Mike McGlinchey. 17. player

He may not protect Philip Rivers for long, but whoever the quarterback is who replaces Rivers will be extremely happy to see Mike McGlinchey in front of him when he enters his first training camp.

The other part of Notre Dame’s dominant left side of their offensive line, McGlinchey is a Pro Bowler waiting to happen.

Must Read: Mike Hughes Profile

36. . Cornerback. UCF. Mike Hughes. 18. player

What better to add to a team looking to return to Super Bowl form than a defending college National Champion?

Mike Hughes is talented, accomplished and will fit right in with the ‘Legion of Who’.

123. . Wide Receiver. Maryland. D.J. Moore. 19. player

I understand the Cowboys moving on from Dez Bryant, but there is no number one on their roster. Hell, there may not be a number two.

Allen Hurns is not what he was, Cole Beasley has always been a role player, and KD Cannon has some potential but it’s yet to be realized.

Terrance Williams certainly isn’t going to replace Bryant alone.

D.J. Moore can immediately provide Dak Prescott with the weapon he needs to maintain his upwards trajectory and will help keep defenses from stacking up against Ezekiel Elliott as well.

. Linebacker. Alabama. Rashaan Evans. 20. player. 50

Lining Rashaan Evans up with Jarrad Davis gives the Lions a formidable center of their defense which should help trim some of the scoring given up by the defense in 2017.

Evans can do a little bit of everything, which Detroit needs to keep teams off schedule and out of scoring situations.

Frank Ragnow. 21. player. 56. . Center. Arkansas

If the Bengals want to re-commit to the running game they’ll need something up front to help out Cordy Glenn.

Frank Ragnow has had his stock rising as of late and this could be his highest possible landing spot.

Adding him also has the lesser known potential of establishing the core of an offensive line which will welcome Andy Dalton’s eventual replacement behind center.

. Quarterback. Louisville. Lamar Jackson. 22. player. 31

(trade with Cleveland Browns)

The Cleveland Browns continue to deal and continue to stockpile picks to take advantage of a thick crop of talent in the day two area.

Meanwhile, the Giants trade back into the first round giving up the second pick in the second round and one of two third-round picks in their possession.

They also land their quarterback of the future in Lamar Jackson out of Louisville.

With rumors swirling the Patriots may be seeking out another Tom Brady replacement and the way this board has fallen it’s starting to look like Mason Rudolph or nothing for the Giants.

Jackson is the guy to get. This gives the Browns the first two picks on day two of the NFL Draft.

Must Read: Minkah Fitzpatrick Profile

47. . Guard. UTEP. Will Hernandez. 23. player

If you can’t get your quarterback of the future, protect your quarterback of the now.

Will Hernandez was a standout during the off-season and fits the Patriots’ hard working, ‘Do Your Job’, mentality.

He’ll be a stud in New England for a long time after this and make the sting of getting scooped for a quarterback hurt a little less.

. Defensive End. UTSA. Marcus Davenport. 24. player. 87

If there’s a team who can turn a mild-mannered pass rusher into a potential Hall of Famer it’s the Carolina Panthers.

Julius Peppers might be the best mentor for young Marcus Davenport to have in the NFL and provides the Panthers a young pass rusher to mold for the future who could certainly come in situationally as a rookie and make an impact.
