Picks 49-64

49. Cleveland-Mack Wilson-LB-Alabama, The Browns, with free agency out of the way are in a position of strength. They can add depth and the best talent available, and can draft a year ahead with that in mind.

Wilson is really the last of the big three linebackers in the class. Browns are fortunate to have him fall here, Wilson adds depth to linebacker, with the uncertainty of the future of Christian Kirksey, and can start this year with Kirksey and Joe Schobert.

Genard Avery had been talked about as starting in Jamie Collins old spot, and while Avery will get his looks, there’s no telling how it will actually go. He’s only going into year two, so it would kind of be a big leap to assume he can be on the field all the time.

If the season started today, backups at linebacker would include Adarius Taylor, Ray Ray Armstrong and Xavier Luster-Woodson.

We saw last season how important it is to have bodies in this position group. The Browns lost Mychael Kendricks early on, which meant Jamie Collins had to stay on the field. Schobert and Kirksey were each lost for periods of time due to injury and it hurt.

50. Minnesota-Zach Allen-DE-Boston College

51. Tennessee-Jaylon Ferguson-DE-Louisiana Tech

52. PittsburghAndy IsabellaWR-UMassCleveland native Andy Isabella used to beat Denzel Ward in track meets.

53. Philadelphia-Deionte Thompson-S-Alabama, Gives the Eagles a center fielder in the defensive backfield.

54. Houston-Tytus Howard-T-Alabama St, Helped his stock with a stellar practice week during the Senior Bowl.

55. Houston-Sean Bunting-CB-Central Michigan, In the Wowzer department, played 374 snaps last season and allowed just 17 completed passes, according to PFF. 

56. New England-Kelvin Harmon-WR-NC St., Can he get open?

57. Philadelphia-Trayvon Mullen-CB-Clemson, Almost went with Trayvon Mullen in Mock Draft. 2.0.

58. Dallas-Jerry Tillery-DT-Notre Dame, Landed at No. 4 in Chris Simm’s defensive tackle ratings.

59. Indianapolis-Lonnie Johnson-CB-Kentucky, May be best suited in the nickel.

60. Los Angeles Chargers-Jarrett Stidham-QB-Auburn, Phillip Rivers can still sling it, but it doesn’t hurt to consider the future.

61. Kansas CityAmani Hooker-S-Iowa, Mocked to the Browns in my last draft. The immediate need at safety has been elevated thanks to the edition of Eric Murray and Morgan Burnett.

62. New Orleans-Darnell Savage-S-Maryland, Will deliver some hits worth remembering

63. Kansas City-Darnell Henderson-RB-Memphis, Capable of getting that home-run play on any down.
