11. Tennessee Titans
Anthony Barr

Ray Horton’s defense needs someone to rush the passer from the outside linebacker spot. Barr fills that role and could develop into the best rusher in the draft.

12. New York Giants
Taylor Lewan

Tom Coughlin has issues with players with issues but Lewan is a high grade tackle that can protect Eli Manning and open up running lanes.

13. St. Louis Rams
Justin Gilbert

After getting their offensive tackle the Rams get the top rated corner in the draft in Gilbert. The Rams front 7 is solid to great but needs some help on the back end. Dix would be a perfect fit but is already off the board.

14. Chicago Bears
Darqueze Dennard

The Bears could easily go with Aaron Donald but instead get some youth in their defensive backfield with the physical Dennard. Dennard’s style of play fits the Chicago Bears heritage perfectly.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers
Aaron Donald

The Steelers take the best player left on the board, one who could go off much earlier. The Cowboys could look to move up to this spot to get Donald but we aren’t projecting any trades. Donald can attack from any position in the front 3 of the Steelers and be good at it.
