. Cornerback. Louisville. Jaire Alexander. 28. player. 55

The Steelers have one of the most talented rosters in all of the NFL. However, where they need a lot of help is in the secondary. In comes Jaire Alexander.

Alexander is a fast, playmaking corner who could start day one for Pittsburgh. Much like the Bills taking Tre White last season later in the first, the Steelers could do that and have the same result with an extremely talented corner.

After giving up big games to Tom Brady and Blake Bortles at the end of the season, the Steelers need to address their secondary to give the offense some help. With Ben Roethlisberger’s window closing, the team needs to add talent fast before they are on the outside looking in. (Stephen)

Previous Pick: Steelers trade pick to Giants

52. . Wide Receiver. Alabama. Calvin Ridley. 29. player

In a weak wide receiver draft class, Calvin Ridley has been widely considered the best of the group. I personally don’t believe he will translate to the NFL game as well as D.J. Moore and Courtland Sutton.

The Jaguars let go Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson in the offseason, so this move is coming. They will need playmakers out wide that can make plays on bad throws (Blake Bortles is awful). Ridley will have the benefit of single coverage due to the Jaguars run-heavy offense. (Justin)

Previous Pick: Trade out of pick

. Guard. Georgia. Isaiah Wynn. 30. player. 60

Adding one of the best and most versatile offensive lineman in the class this late in the round is a steal for the Vikings. They addressed the defensive line with Sheldon Richardson in free agency and could go corner here, but the Vikings need help on the inside of the line.

Wynn played tackle, guard and center at Georgia and played them all extremely well. He will most likely be a guard in the NFL due to his size and speed, but he is exactly what Minnesota needs. Protecting their investment in Kirk Cousins and opening holes for running back Dalvin Cook will be huge for the Vikings moving forward. (Stephen)
