After missing out on James, Washington decides beef up their front seven with the best run stopper in the draft. Vea will slide into the starting nose tackle role after the Redskins opted to release veteran Chris Baker.
Washington is in the middle of a mini-rebuild. They have a decent defense that can be strengthened by Vea’s presence. The Redskins should be building a defense to stop Wentz/Ajayi and Prescott/Elliott. This pick allows them to do that. (Justin)
Josh Jackson is one of the better corners in the class, and Green Bay needs some help on the outside. Jackson has outstanding ball skills and the recovery speed necessary for an NFC North that has Matt Stafford, a young Mitchell Trubisky, and receivers like Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.
Putting Jackson in the Green Bay defense will help give Clay Matthews and Nick Perry more time to rush the passer. The Iowa product will help out a defense that will have a new defensive coordinator in 2018. (Stephen)
The Buccaneers trade back and grab a player that will fill their biggest need. With the departure of Doug Martin, Guice will slide in as the day 1 starter. His physical running style will force the defense to commit more guys to the run.
He will help with the development of Jameis Winston, and allow Mike Evans to continue to grow into one of the best receivers in the league. Guice will be a serious contender for Rookie of the Year in this scenario. (Justin)
