New England Patriots. Kyle Pitts. 16. player. 47. . Tight End

The New England Patriots continue to roll, and with their blowout victory against the Los Angeles Chargers, they are suddenly sitting at 6-6. Nobody should be ruling out Bill Belichick and company, and if they can make a run, they will be picking later than No. 16 overall, where they currently stand.

With the pick, Belichick should look to get his next Rob Gronkowski, and the only player in the draft with that kind of skill set is Florida’s, Kyle Pitts. This is a guy who can stretch the defense, make tough catches in traffic, and on the Patriots, the offensive coordinator will know exactly what to do with him.

Creed Humphrey. 17. player. 26. . Offensive Lineman. Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens took on the Dallas Cowboys in a Tuesday night battle, and they were able to get Lamar Jackson back in time for the matchup. Jackson had been on the COVID list, and now that he is back for the Ravens, they have a lot to do if they want to catch the teams ahead of them in the playoff hunt.

Jackson is a special talent, and already has an NFL Most Valuable Player award on his resume, but he needs better talent upfront along his offensive line. Creed Humphrey helps them get better along the interior, and he has the versatility to play either center or guard at the next level.

Las Vegas Raiders. Marvin Wilson. 18. player. 28. . Defensive Tackle

The Las Vegas Raiders were able to bounce back from their bad loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12 to beat the New York Jets in miracle fashion in Week 13. The Silver and Black needed a game-winning touchdown pass from Derek Carr to Henry Ruggs III to pull out the victory, and they got it with less than ten seconds left.

As they turn the page, they have four games left to prove they are a playoff team, but one thing is for sure, they need help along their defensive line. Bringing in Marvin Wilson to team with Maurice Hurst gives them two young and talented players on the interior to pair with Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby on the outside.
