6. LA Chargers: Team Needs = QB, LT, CB, LB, TE
Selection – Justin Hebert, QB Oregon
The Chargers are also excited that their future QB falls to them after letting Rivers leave in free agency. Herbert is the prototypical QB with his size and arm strength. The test will be if he can take snaps under center effectively, (which he never did at Oregon). He is also somewhat of a risk considering his competition in the PAC 12, but he has a very high ceiling.
7. Carolina Panthers: Team Needs = CB, LB, IDL, IOL, S
Selection – CJ Henderson, CB Florida
The Panthers have done very well in free agency on offensive side of the ball by signing Teddy Bridgewater, Robby Anderson and Russell Okung. I see them taking one of the top DB’s in this class, CJ Henderson. They could take the top-rated safety in Alabama’s Xavier McKinney, but not likely, since they just re-signed Tre Boston to a 3-year extension.
8. Arizona Cardinals: Team Needs = OT, IDL, LB, EDGE
Selection – Jedrick Willis Jr., OL Alabama
Arizona needs to protect Kyler Murray to give him time to torch defensive backs with Fitzgerald and Hopkins. Jedrick Willis can do just that. He is big, wide and extremely athletic. He played right tackle at Alabama but could switch to the left with a year or two of NFL experience. He is one of the best offensive linemen in the draft.
9. Jacksonville Jaguars: Team Needs = CB, QB, LB, S, OT, WR
Selection – Jordan Love, QB Utah St.
The Jags could go many different ways with this selection. They are in total rebuild mode and needs help at nearly every position. I think they should start the process with a solid quarterback. Jordan is athletic, confident and a natural passer. He throws tight spirals into small windows. However, he will need time to develop more. He took a step backwards last year in terms of production.
10. Cleveland Browns: Team Needs = LT, LB, S, IDL, IOL
Selection – Andrew Thomas, OL Georgia
The Browns need toprotect Baker Mayfield. He has plenty of weapons to work with and make him look great. If the Browns don’t make it to the playoffs this year, Baker will be gone. Andrew Thomas can help right away and be a starter for years to come. He has fantastic hands and footwork. He started 13 games at left tackle and was awarded first-team Associated Press All-American and first-team all-conference accolades in 2019.
