player. 123. . Wide Receiver. SMU. Courtland Sutton. 19

Dez Bryant isn’t the same guy. His salary and lack of production will force the Cowboys to look for a replacement in the draft.

Sutton will slide in as the new number one receiver in a run-first offense. He can use his body to gain separation and act as the new Dez.

Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott will make most of the plays for Dallas, so pressure will be minimal. Sutton will be a force in the redzone and form a new version of the triplets in Dallas. (Justin)

Previous Pick: Leighton Vander Esch

20. player. 47. <em>(TRADE)</em> <p><strong>Patriots receive: </strong>No. 20 and 117 overall picks.</p> <p><strong>Lions receive:</strong> No. 23 and 63 overall picks.</p>. Quarterback. Louisville. Lamar Jackson


This pick makes sense for two reasons. First, the connection is there between Bill Belichick and Matt Patricia. Detriot would not lose much dropping three spots back so it makes sense for them.

Secondly, we have seen the kind of offense the Patriots are building. They are running a spread offense that goes as fast as possible. Sounds like the offense run at Louisville.

I believe this team will be Josh McDaniels’ once Tom Brady retires. It wouldn’t surprise me if McDaniels stayed in New England and turned Jackson into a star. (Justin)

Previous Pick: Mike Hughes

56. . Center. Iowa. James Daniels. 21. player

The Bengals traded back knowing they needed multiple offensive linemen. They got Cordy Glenn as part of the trade with the Bills and will draft another lineman to pair up with him.

The Bengals just lost Russell Bodine and will look to find his replacement early in the draft. Daniels will be a guy that they could plug in from day one. He will start many years and you will never hear his name (good trait for an offensive lineman). (Justin)
