The San Francisco 49ers incredibly made it to the NFC Championship Game as the No. 6 seed in the conference, taking on NFC West rival Los Angeles. However, after beating the Rams twice during the regular season, a costly Jimmy Garoppolo interception ended their year in the NFC title game, and secure the No. 29 overall pick for the Miami Dolphins.
With this pick, the Dolphins need to get a weapon for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, and they get an elite one here in Ohio State star Chris Olave. There are plenty of WR-needy teams in this year’s draft, but if he falls to Miami, teaming him with Jaylen Waddle could be the new Clayton-Duper in South Beach.
For a while during the AFC title game, it looked as if Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs would waltz into their third straight Super Bowl. However, you can never underestimate the power of Joe Burrow, who led his team to a stunning comeback, punching the Bengals ticket to the Super Bowl.
With pick No. 30, Kansas City should look to add some help in the secondary, and Daxton Hill from Michigan is the second-best safety in this class. Hill would be an excellent addition alongside Tyrann Mathieu, bolstering the safety spot in KC in a big way.
