32. . Edge. Arizona Cardinals. George Karlaftis. 23. player

The Arizona Cardinals are in the middle of a roller coaster of an offseason, as a lot of the talk has focused around Kyler Murray. Will he play, or will he not is the question, but I believe they will get a deal done, and everything will be fine for them moving forward.

Looking at the roster, they have to improve coming off the edge, and they do so by drafting Purdue star George Karlaftis. Karlaftis is an absolute monster of an edge rusher, and would learn a ton from JJ Watt.

Wide Receiver. Dallas Cowboys. Treylon Burks. 24. player. 123.

The Dallas Cowboys were another NFC team that really disappointed in 2021, as they got to the playoffs, but did nothing when they got there. It remains to be seen whether or not Mike McCarthy will keep his job moving forward, but if they decide to cut bait, Dan Quinn is waiting in the wings.

After trading away Amari Cooper this offseason, the Cowboys have some holes at wide receiver, and they fill it here with Treylon Burks. In terms of pure talent, you have to love what Burks brings to the table, and he will be a favorite of Dak Prescott right away.

Buffalo Bills. Kaiir Elam. 25. player. 16. . Cornerback

The Buffalo Bills are going to be one of the best teams in the AFC once again this upcoming season, as quarterback Josh Allen continues to develop into a star. The issue, however, is that his offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll is now the head coach of the New York Giants, something to keep an eye on.

On the defensive side of the ball, Buffalo could afford to add more talent to the secondary, and they add a solid cornerback in Kaiir Elam here at No. 25 overall. Elam could go even higher in this draft when all is said and done, but in Buffalo, he would be a nice complement to Tre’Davious White.
