45. <strong>(TRADE)</strong> <p><em>Buffalo Receives</em>: 5th, 182nd</p> <p><em>Denver Receives</em>: 21st, 22nd, 96th, 2019 2nd round pick</p>. Guard. UTEP. Will Hernandez. 22. player

After their trade with the Bills, the Broncos fall back to No. 22 with their second pick and take Hernandez. Like Quenton Nelson, Hernandez is a mauling guard who plays much like Richie Incognito.

Denver has had issues in years past with protecting their quarterbacks and have had several players take turns along the line. Hernandez could pair with 2017 first-round pick Garett Bolles to provide a youthful punch on the left side of the line for Denver. (Stephen)

The Rams offense is dynamic. Their defense is short a pass rusher and a linebacker due to the recent trades of Alec Ogletree and Robert Quinn. They opt to grab an elite talent in Edmunds that can fill the void left by either player.

He would be a great fit for a 3-4 team, but Wade Philips will find ways to use him. As one of the top defensive minds in football, Phillips will make sure a talent like Edmunds will be utilized to the max to ensure the Rams defense is as dangerous as its offense. (Justin)

24. player. 87. . Guard. Georgia. Isaiah Wynn

Free agent Andrew Norwell is considered one of the best guards in the NFL and a free agent for the Panthers. He should expect big money on the open market, unless the team franchise tags him. With the uncertainty of Norwell’s future with the team, the Panthers could elect to find his immediate replacement in Isaiah Wynn.

Wynn could step right in and play tackle, guard, or center in the NFL, but his best position would be on the inside due to his stature at 6-foot-2. He could be an immediate fill-in for Norwell, or help at center to provide the team some depth up front. (Stephen)
