Final Edition with Trades!
The Houston Texans need to grab the best playmaking offensive weapon available and Jahmyr Gibbs is the closest player to Alvin Kamara that I have seen come out of the draft and getting Bryce Young his running back from the 2022 season the perfect pick to kick off Day 2.
The Chicago Bears need to address the offensive line in the worst way possible in 2023 as this team woes upfront have been the talk of Bears nation. Anton Harrison is an athletic tackle with great length and size and could potentially be a plug and play offensive lineman in his rookie year.
The Falcons need to address the cornerback position sooner rather than later in this draft and get a huge steal in Day in Cam Smith out of South Carolina after getting the steal of Day 1 in Will Anderson Jr. out of Alabama. He's a highly athletic and feisty cornerback that has size issues as some do and is a plug and play rookie in 2023.
The New York Giants go Will Levis in Day 1 to address the quarterback position and in Day 2 grab the best secondary player available in Brandon Joseph. Joseph has tremendous ball skills and coverage instincts and would fit nicely on the backend of Big Blue's defense.
The Jets have potentially great interior defensive lineman in Quinnen Williams and they have done a great job of getting edge rushers for him in Carl Lawson and Jermaine Johnson II but you can never have too many pass rushers on a team and Will McDonald IV is the perfect situational pass rusher this team needs on defense. McDonald IV is a highly athletic and super technically sound edge rusher that struggles against power on the field and allowing him to develop further in the run game while the Jets hope Carl Lawson still has plenty in the tank after a season-ending injury last year.
The New Orleans Saints need to grab some legit interior defensive lineman in the NFL draft Calijah Kancey is the last good defensive tackle available and he fits the mold that the Saints look for in the defensive tackles. He's extremely quick and aggressive in the interior and can be disruptive presence in the trenches despite his lacking length and size.
The Panthers have a potential stud cornerback in Jaycee Horn who missed last season with injury and getting him a tag team partner opposite him in 2023 is a very smart move in Day 2. Riley Moss is a relentless ball hawk at the cornerback position with a knack for taking it to the house and although his size and tackling ability are concerning, his ability to change the tides in a game are very much established as a prospect.
The Washington Football team grab a top notch cornerback in Day 1 and bolster the pass rush in Day 2. B.J. Ojulari is a very athletic edge rusher that can potentially effect the opposing pass attack in a number of ways and that versatility on defense will help the Commanders immensely as Chase Young continues to recover.
The Lions patience pays off in Day 2 as they grab the best quarterback availble in Tanner McKee out of Stanford. Stanford quarterbacks do have a higher success rate than most programs in college football as they are some of the biggest Brainiac's in in college as they come out of one of the best academic institutions in the world. McKee has a lower ceiling than most quarterbacks in this draft but he's exactly what this potentially talented team needs at the quarterback position.
The Patriots 2022 season will likely be one that doesn't involve a great deal of plays made from the receiving corps and bolstering that group is the priority here in Day as they snagged Myles Murphy in Day 1. Josh Downs is a great route runner and playmaker after the catch and should give the Patriots at the very least a reliable pass catcher for Mac Jones.
The Browns are a "draft the best player available" in April as long as it's not a quarterback they need and Habbakkuk Baldonado has great edge rusher potential in the NFL. He's explosive off the line and was a constant presence for Pitt in 2021 and could be a early producer on defense as teams continue to focus on his counterpart on the other side Myles Garrett.
The Steelers went for value in Day 1 by grabbing Bryan Bresee and now they turn to their biggest need in Day 2 by grabbing an offensive tackle. Paris Johnson Jr. has great length and athleticism at the tackle position and with further coaching he could be a very reliable presence on the outside for the Steelers offense.
The Jaguars need to grab the best players available as this team continues to take shape and Gervon Dexter out of the hometown team in the Florida Gators is a perfect selection. He's immensely powerful with great length and would certainly wreak havoc in the trenches for the Jaguars down the line.
The Philadelphia Eagles have done a lot on the defensive side of the football in Day 1 and their last need would be to draft a tight end that can pair well with Dallas Goedert and Sam La Porta certainly can fit the bill. La Porta is a very good receiving option at the tight end position and has room to grow as a route-runner and if the Eagles are serious about Jalen Hurts being their franchise quarterback, they will grab La Porta.
The Miami Dolphins addressed the offense in Day 1 by grabbing the sensational running back prospect in Bijan Robinson and in Day 2 they address the pass rusher further by grabbing Auburns Derick Hall. Hall is a very powerful and aggressive edge rusher that should fit right on the Miami defense.
The Seahawks have addressed the receiver position with the D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett extensions previously but getting another receiver that can cause damage in the slot certainly couldn't hurt. Marvin Mims is a very fast and quick receiver that can do some things after the catch and it exactly what a young quarterback would need to succeed.
The Colts need to address the quarterback position at some point and Devin Leary out of N.C. State is the perfect player for this team to snag in Day 2. Leary is a very accurate and decisive quarterback in college football whose size concerns keep him from being a 1st round pick and he enters an offense in Indianapolis that features an elite rushing attack that can mob teams with need of spectacular quarterback play.
The Cardinals need receivers still even after trading for Hollywood Brown and Xavier Henderson is a great pick here as a potential outside receiver option. He has the size and route-running ability to be threat on the Cardinals offense and could be a potential replacement for DeAndre Hopkins if he gets injured.
The defensive line of the Baltimore Ravens is getting old and some new blood in the unit should be a priority in year two. Jaquelin Roy was violent run stuffer in college football in 2022 even in limited action and his style of play is exactly what the Ravens look for in a defensive player. He fits this team perfectly as of the preseason of 2022.
The 49ers defense is damn near elite at every position outside of the cornerback position and addressing it hear with their first pick in the draft is the best move they can make. Joey Porter Jr. at this point in the college football season is a raw prospect but highly athletic and very talented and he has great NFL bloodlines with his father being a a great NFL linebacker for the Steelers.
The Los Angeles Chargers need to bolster their interior depth on the defensive line a little more as Jerry Tillery seems to be the only defensive tackle of note on the roster. Byron Young is a big and powerful interior lineman that specializes as a run stuffer and would certainly help this team in the run defense.
The Minnesota Vikings have had offensive line issues for years and their attempts to fix have been inconsistent in terms of finding solutions to the problem and Jaxson Kirkland is another worthy attempt at fixing the line. He's a highly experience offensive tackle that has blocked against numerous NFL edge rushers on the Husky roster over the years and had success. His selection gives the Vikings a versatile offensive lineman that can potentially plug into any position on the line.
The Titans defense is very at pretty much every position outside of linebacker and Jack Campbell would immediately be a contributor on the Titans defense. He's big and athletic middle linebacker that has shown good instincts in both the run and pass game and this defense is in need of linebackers like Campbell to make plays.
The Green Packers grab Jermaien Burton out of Alabama in the 2nd round to appease fans who were clamoring for a Day 1 playmaker selection. Burton could very well rocket up draft boards if he becomes another superstar receiver that Alabama continues produce. Burton has plenty of athleticism to make a difference on the field and if Aaron Rodgers wishes to stay in Green Bay for another year, Burton should be considered a rookie of the year candidate.
The offensive line of the Cincinnati Bengals is their biggest concern heading into the 2022 season and with the selection of the Trenton Simpson in Day 1, they go and grab offensive line help in Day 2. Zion Nelson is a big and powerful offensive tackle prospect that has shown himself to be a mauler in the run game.
The Dallas Cowboys have receiver depth issues currently on the team as well as offensive line depth issues as well but with Nelson taking from them they simply turn their sights on the former need. Rakim Jarrett is physical and athletic receiver that can take any pass and turn it into a big gain.
The Kansas City Chiefs have a hall of fame tight end in Travis Kelce but he's getting old and they need to think about drafting his replacement. Jahleel Billingsley is a very athletic tight end/ receiver prospect that could be a very versatile weapon on the Chiefs offense and eventually replace Kelce when he retires.
The Buccaneers need to address the running game next season as Leonard Fournette could be a cap casualty if he doesn't have productive season ins 2022. Zach Evans is a very elusive running back that has potential as a passing threat out of the backfield and would be a good option for the future quarterback in Tampa Bay.
The Raiders safety position has been a sore spot for a while with Johnathan Abrams consistently injured and his replacements leaving little to be desired at times. Ji'Ayir Brown is a highly productive safety out of Penn State that can both play the run game well and cover.
The Los Angeles Rams need some new blood in the interior of the offensive line and Jarrett Patterson is a good option hear in Day 2. Patterson is a highly technical center prospect that comes from a program at Notre Dame that produces very good offensive lineman on a regular basis.
The Buffalo Bills do themselves a favor in Day 2 and grab another pass rusher for their defense in Zach Harrison. Harrison is a run stuffing specialist as 2022 with lots of upside to be a more effective pass rusher. He fits well on the roster and can develop into an every down player for the Bills defense.
