13. Las Vegas Raiders

SELECTION: Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

Like the Broncos, the Raiders were likely hoping to nab one of the top quarterbacks. With most of them gone, they have to turn to option two. Quinyon Mitchell is a perfect fit for what the Raiders are trying to do on defense. Head coach Antonio Pierce badly wants to reinvigorate the physicality of old. Mitchell is exactly the kind of guy that they want to match up with the opponent's top receivers. He is lightning-fast and a sure tackler. When he is a polished professional, he should be an excellent player.

14. New Orleans Saints

SELECTION: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Lucky, lucky, lucky... The Saints somehow get one of the top three wide receivers in the class to fall into their lap. Odunze is an explosive athlete who gives the Saints a real playmaker. With strong hands and an electric first step, the Saints just got themselves a tremendous second option behind Chris Olave. If Derek Carr can't make it work with these two, it would be time to move on.

15. Indianapolis Colts

SELECTION: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Dallas Clark, is that you? Not quite, but I have a feeling that Brock Bowers might remind Colts fans of a better time. Anthony Richardson has talent around him, but Bowers would provide a security blanket in the middle of the field that he does not currently have. Indy would be fortunate to have Bowers fall to them here.

16. Seattle Seahawks

SELECTION: Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

The Seahawks need a little bit of juice on defense. It's unclear who is to blame, but throwing a talented pass rusher at a problem has never been the incorrect answer. Dallas Turner is very athletic and is a piece of the puzzle that could change life in Seattle. Turner is raw, but with some NFL coaching, he could develop into one of the best rushers in the game.
