Back in February, posted my first NFL Mock Draft of the NFL offseason, basing selections off the team’s immediate needs of the time. With free agency now taking place, teams filled some major holes in their roster, now not having the same positional needs. In the third installment of my second NFL mock draft: Picks 20-32.
This also occurred in the opposite, as many high profile teams lost one of their best players, and must find a replacement.
New England Patriots: WR Drake London, USC
As New England continues to attempt to build around the young Mac Jones, providing him a legitimate star wideout will go a long way in his development. London is considered to be the best wide receiver to plenty of draft analysts, and is a steal here at 21.
Green Bay Packers: WR Jameson Williams, Alabama
With Davante Adams gone, Green Bay is desperate to find Aaron Rodgers some receiving threats in the twilight of his career. Jameson Williams is another trailblazer to come out of Alabama, and the speedster working with a 4x MVP can lead to some explosive results.
Arizona Cardinals: EDGE George Karlaftis, Purdue
Similar to Green Bay, Arizona also lost one of their most productive players to the Las Vegas Raiders, with them losing sack artist Chandler Jones. Karlaftis has not put up the desirable sack numbers expected from a first round pick, but has put together great tape during his time at Purdue.
Dallas Cowboys: DT Jordan Davis, Georgia
We all know Jerry Jones loves his big names, and none is larger in this draft than Jordan Davis (literally). The 340 pound Georgia Bulldog is a born run-stuffer, and fills Dallas’ need for a defensive tackle.
Buffalo Bills: WR Jahan Dotson, Penn State
The Bills are so close to breaking through to a Super Bowl, and adding another playmaker may be the exact thing to put them over the top. Dotson put up exceptional numbers despite questionable quarterback play during his time at Penn State, and would be a constant big play threat with Josh Allen.
Tennessee Titans: OT Bernhard Raimann, Central Michigan
The Titans have not found a serviceable right tackle since Jack Conklin left the team back in 2020. Despite playing in the MAC, Raimann is excelling in the post-draft process, and will be the first Central Michigan tackle to be drafted since Eric Fischer went first overall.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: S Dax Hill, Michigan
Tampa struggled in the secondary all 2021, most notably in the divisional round where they were torched by Matt Stafford and Cooper Kupp. Hill gives the position group some reinforcements and a partner in crime for rising star Antoine Winifield Jr.
Green Bay Packers: EDGE David Ojabo, Michigan
David Ojabo is a steal here at 28, and it is essential Green Bay finds a replacement for Za’Darius Smith.
Kansas City Chiefs: WR George Pickens, Georgia
Tyreek Hill’s departure from Kansas City shocked the football world, and left the Chiefs with a below average wide receiver group. Pickens may be a reach here, but the national champion has the tools to succeed at the next level.
Kansas City Chiefs: Andrew Booth Jr., Clemson
Defense continues to have room for improvement, and adding the Clemson standout can be beneficial for the team’s young secondary.
Cincinnati Bengals: DT Devonte Wyatt, Georgia
The AFC champions were able to address the offensive line in free agency, signing La’el Collins and Alex Cappa. So instead, I have the team taking the best player remaining on the board.
Detroit Lions: IOL Tyler Linderbaum
Dan Campbell loves to win in the trenches, and Tyler Linderbaum does just that. Few interior linemen have won more awards during their college career, and he may be the safest pick in the entire draft.
