Sam Hubbard. 25. player. 35. . Outside Linebacker/Defensive End. Ohio State

Mike Vrabel is a defensive guy. He understands to be successful in the NFL you need to have plenty of pass rushers. Much like Vrabel, Hubbard is a player that is constantly pursuing the ball and doesn’t stop until the whistle.

The Titans will select Hubbard to help add youth to their pass rush. Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo aren’t getting any younger and are great veterans that can help Hubbard along with his development. (Justin)

Previous Pick: Harold Landry

44. . Defensive Tackle. Florida. Taven Bryan. 26. player

The Falcons defensive line has gone from a strength to a weakness. Losing Dontari Poe and Adrian Clayborn in free agency will hurt in stopping the run and rushing the passer. In a division with Cam Newton, Drew Brees, Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and Jameis Winston, the team needs both.

Bryan can offer both. He is strong and agile as a defensive tackle, helping plug the run. However, he can still rush from the middle and disrupt pockets and allow edge rushers like Vic Beasley and Brooks Reed to get to the QB. He would be a great fit for a defense with young pieces and can start from day one. (Stephen)

Previous Pick: Unchanged

Da'Ron Payne. 27. player. 13. Los Angeles trades No. 17 to New Orleans for No. 27, No. 91, and 2019 second. Defensive Tackle. Alabama

The Chargers have built something special along their defensive front seven. Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram are sack specialists, while Denzel Perryman has demonstrated the ability to fly to the ball.

The trade back isn’t a costly one because they end up taking a prospect that they would have chosen at pick 17. He could be the plug in the middle that the defense has been looking for. (Justin)

Previous Pick: Vita Vea
