28. Baltimore Ravens: WR Laviska Shenault Jr, Colorado
What more could you do if you are the Baltimore Ravens? You have one of the best offenses and one of the best defenses. But there are some improvements that this team can make on offense. Lamar Jackson will most likely not put up his 2019 numbers again in 2020.
Like teams started to do towards the end of the year, they will force him to throw it more and keep two safeties over the top to eliminate big plays. In order to stay ahead, the Ravens should draft another wide receiver, one that can make the same catches across the middle of the field that his tight ends do.
One player slated for the first round is Laviska Shenault Jr. from Colorado. Shenault didn’t produce quite like he did in 2018, however, he was in the conversation for the Biletnikoff Award as a true sophomore, after hauling in 87 passes for 1,019 yards and breaking 29 tackles in the process. He should fit right into this offense on the outside of Hollywood Brown.
29. Tennessee Titans: DE Curtis Weaver, Boise State
The Titans were very good this year. Along with the San Francisco 49ers, they were a bit of a surprise. One way to keep improving this team is by taking a defensive end opposite of Harold Landry. Fill in, Curtis Weaver.
Although his combined sacks (14) and hits (12) are three more than anyone else in college football, he doesn’t have the flexibility and bend that you need at the next level. This is a major concern for many scouts. However, If he can improve this part of his game, he can be a really solid piece for this defense.
30. Green Bay Packers: TE Cole Kmet, Notre Dame
Cole Kmet changed his mind. He was not originally coming out this year but decided to head for the NFL, which is a smart move. Kmet is the best tight end in this draft class. Although the two first-round tight ends last year were better, Kmet will be a really good pass catcher, and he can block pretty good as well.
Aaron Rodgers will love his new 6’6 250 pound TE.
31. San Francisco 49ers: S Xavier McKinney, ALABAMA
The San Francisco 49ers are one of the league’s best teams. After coming just short to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Niners will look to improve part of there defense that hasn’t been all that great. If you look at what the Chiefs do to most teams, there is no surprise you’d want to go out and get a better secondary, however, the 49ers really struggled to stop the Chiefs, especially in the 4th quarter.
Fill in Xavier McKinney, who will bring an instant playmaker for this Niners defense. McKinney can easily go as high as 13 but will likely be the second safety taken. His deep coverage ability is something that will be a huge upgrade for this Niners defense.
32 Kansas City Chiefs: RB J.K. Dobbins, Ohio State
The Kansas City Chiefs have improved tremendously on defense over the past year and although they could draft to keep improving, one of the biggest disappointments of this team has been their lack of explosiveness in the run game. Although Damien Williams had himself a Super Bowl to remember, the Chiefs running game has not been the same since Kareem Hunt.
If they decide to upgrade there, they might as well get the best running back in college football, Ohio State’s JK Dobbins. The divisional rival, the Raiders, drafted Josh Jacobs, and he was an instant game-changer for the organization. Dobbins will have the same impact.
Dobbins rushed for over 2000 yards in 2019, to go along with 21 rushing touchdowns. The explosiveness is there, and he will take this Chiefs offense to the next level.
