13. Washington Redskins: Tremaine Edmunds, LB – Virginia Tech

Tremaine Edmunds is without a doubt an impact linebacker prospect. He fields rare athleticism and speed for his positon, which allows him to play at all linebacker spots.

He is a consistent tackler and can use his speed as an extra rusher off the edge in passing situations.

Add him with Zach Brown in Washington and the Redskins could have one of the most talented, young front sevens in all of football. Edmunds is also only 19-years-old and has plenty of room to develop.

14. Green Bay Packers: Joshua Jackson, CB – Iowa

Green Bay could go a number of ways here with their first selection. Wide receiver could be a temptation, but the greatest talent will still remain on the defensive side of the ball.

Joshua Jackson is a ball-hawking corner who can help provide a spark to the derailing Green Bay secondary.

15. Arizona Cardinals: Lamar Jackson, QB – Louisville

This is a very interesting scenario to consider. Arizona recently signed Sam Bradford in free agency. If healthy, Bradford can provide a valuable bridge role to another rookie quarterback.

Lamar Jackson is the perfect developmental quarterback in this draft and it is going to be difficult to pass up on his electrifying athleticism and arm strength.

There is a real possibility of Michael Vick 2.0 here and Jackson would benefit from being able to red-shirt for a year.

A future of David Johnson and Jackson sounds like a pretty intriguing deal. The potential upside is enormous.

16. Baltimore Ravens: Courtland Sutton, WR – SMU

The Ravens need to add a spark to their offense. Baltimore’s offensive talent is dull right now and the team has lacked a true number one receiver for a long time.

Sutton could become a go-to option for Joe Flacco if the Ravens are able to nab him.

Sutton is a large-framed receiver who excels in contested situations. He fights through contact easily and would provide Baltimore with a dynamite red zone option.

17. Los Angeles Chargers: Da’Ron Payne, DT – Alabama

While the Chargers could use an offensive lineman to help protect Phillip Rivers, defensive line is the most glaring need with the Bolts. Outside of the pass rush from Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram last season, the Chargers struggled to maintain a viable presence on the interior of their defensive line.

Da’Ron Payne can push the pocket from inside with unusual athleticism for a player his size. He is a disruptor with a get off to penetrate and make plays.

With Cory Liuget suspended to start the season, Payne will likely be a starter from day one.

18. Seattle Seahawks: Mike McGlinchey, OT – Notre Dame

Seattle has left Russell Wilson out to dry for too long. Despite having a remarkable ability to escape, Wilson should not have to run for his life play in and play out.

McGlinchey would be an upgrade over Germain Ifedi at the right tackle spot, potentially allowing Ifedi to move inside for depth or as a starter.
