Pick Analysis. Tight End. player. Scouting Report. Pat Friermuth. 49. 32. Penn State

The Cardinals are one tight end away from having one of the most dominant passing offenses in the league next season.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. EDGE. 50. player. 59. Wake Forest. Carlos Basham Jr.

The addition of Carlos Basham will be a suitable replacement for Shaq Lawson along the edge from last season.

Scouting Report. Linebacker. Nick Bolton. player. Pick Analysis. Missouri. 51. 58

The middle linebacker position is the one position in their loaded defense that isn’t complete. There is only one true middle linebacker on their roster as well.

Scouting Report. 57. 52. player. Pick Analysis. Wide Receiver. Louisville. Tutu Atwell

Even though Chicago used the franchise tag on wide receiver Allen Robinson, the Bears need more talent for their 22nd ranked passing offense (228.4 passing yards per game).

Pick Analysis. Aaron Robinson. 53. player. Scouting Report. Cornerback. UCF. 35

The Titans continue to make serious moves for their secondary after being unable to retain cornerback Malcolm Butler.

Scouting Report. Offensive Tackle. Liam Eichenberg. 54. Pick Analysis. Notre Dame. player. 46

Indianapolis needs to be more concerned at protecting quarterback Carson Wentz than the Philadelphia Eagles this past season.

Pick Analysis. player. Scouting Report. Offensive Tackle. Texas. Samuel Cosmi. 55. 55

Pittsburgh lost several structures of its offensive line. They already feel they cannot fully rely on their quarterback’s health to get them back to a Super Bowl. Pittsburgh needs solid pass protection in this draft.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 36. player. Offensive Tackle. Stanford. Walker Little. 56

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson created chaos in the league and the locker room about his lack of pass protection. The offensive line gave up 48 sacks this past season, tied for fifth-most in the league, this has to change.

Pick Analysis. 57. player. 51. Scouting Report. Linebacker. Ohio State. Baron Browning

With the Rams addressing the offense in free agency, they will need to address their biggest defensive needs in the draft.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Safety. UCF. player. 26. Richie Grant. 58

Baltimore’s defense gave up 3,536 passing yards and 22 passing touchdowns this past season. A move in the deep secondary is the most concerning area at this point in the draft.

Pick Analysis. 59. 53. Scouting Report. Wide Receiver. Western Michigan. D'Wayne Eskiridge. player

The Browns need more impact receivers as they dropped in productivity with the injury to Odell Beckham Jr.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Quarterback. Florida. Kyle Trask. 60. player. 15

Now that Drew Brees is retired, the Saints are looking for a reasonable backup (and potential franchise quarterback) to Jameis Winston. New Orleans has been evaluating Kyle Trask extensively.

Georgia. Eric Stokes. 61. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Cornerback. 16. player

Buffalo could use more another efficient cornerback on the opposite side of Tre’Davious White.

Scouting Report. Offensive Tackle. 62. 49. Pick Analysis. Cincinnati. James Hudson. player

The next step for the Packers to compete for a Super Bowl with quarterback Aaron Rodgers is to find a reliable pass protector on the edge.

Chazz Surratt. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Linebacker. North Carolina. 124. 63

The middle of the defense was also overly exposed in Super Bowl LV. Chazz Surratt will consistently provide run support and zone coverage.

Tulsa. 64. player. 48. Pick Analysis. Zaven Collins. Scouting Report. Outside Linebacker

Tampa Bay’s goal in this draft is to select the best players available. Zaven Collins is a raw prospect that will develop efficiently and learn from the talented veterans on the defense.
