57. . Quarterback. Chicago Bears. Kyle Trask. 13. player

The Chicago Bears are suffering through another season with Matt Nagy as their head coach, and he could be one of the first fired when the season comes to a close. Even with Nagy gone, there is still the question in terms of the quarterback spot, where both Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky are not the answer.

Kyle Trask is a quarterback who could find himself in the top half of the first round next year, and he would be a nice addition in Chicago. He has had himself a tremendous season, putting up eye-popping statistics for the University of Florida, and would hopefully bring some of that success to the Windy City.

Wyatt Davis. 14. player. 42. . Offensive Lineman. San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers got a gutty effort from quarterback Nick Mullens on Monday night, but it just was not enough against a more-talented Buffalo Bills team. Without Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle healthy, the 49ers are going to struggle to win games, so they could be picking even earlier than No. 14 next year.

Whether it is Jimmy G, Mullens, or someone else under center next season, the quarterback needs help along the offensive line. Wyatt Davis is one of the more versatile offensive linemen in this draft class, and could significantly upgrade a weak 49ers offensive line in Year 1.

player. 32. . Edge. Arizona Cardinals. Kwity Paye. 15

The Arizona Cardinals have struggled to win games as of late, and they are seeing their playoff chances dwindle on a weekly basis. This past week, they lost at home to rival Los Angeles and sitting at 6-6, they need to start turning things around in the desert before it is too late.

On defense, the Cardinals have to be better in terms of the pass rush, and they can accomplish that by selecting Kwity Paye from Michigan with the No. 15 pick. It has been a strange year for Paye and the Wolverines, who have been ravaged by COVID-19, but that won’t affect his draft status.
