CB. Jacksonville Jaguars. CJ Henderson. 11. player. 52.

Henderson is rumored to be on the rise, and in some circles maybe the top corner on some teams’ boards. With AJ Boyue being dealt to Denver, corner is a thin spot for the Jags, and they pick up a little value in moving and still getting one.

12. player. 28. . WR. Las Vegas Raiders. CeeDee Lamb

My guess is the Raiders value speed and Ruggs would be the pick if available. Lamb, while not a burner has great underneath quickness, and ability to take short passes to the house. Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota aren’t exactly deep ball throwers and Lamb fits their play style. As an aside, so would Jerry Jeudy.

42. . WR. San Francisco 49ers. Jerry Jeudy. 13. player

Speaking of Jeudy, the run of wide receivers continues with the star from Alabama. Javon Kinlaw or Derrick Brown would be good options here for the Niners to replace DeForrest Buckner, but Jeudy adds a nice piece for Kyle Shanahan.

48. . LT. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mekhi Becton. 14. player

Left tackle is a big need for the Bucs and Becton is still on the board to help Tom Brady, Becton is a bit of a project, so maybe the Bucs take a falling Derrick Brown or Javon Kinlaw, but the left side is a glaring need so the Bucs pounce here.

15. player. 52. . DT. Jacksonville Jaguars. Derrick Brown

TRADE: The Browns trade down again. The Jags give up picks Nos. 20 and 68 (just acquired from the Jets). Brown provides a needed upgrade to the middle of the Jags D Line, and certainly a big upgrade over Taven Bryan.
