<em>(TRADE)</em> <p><strong>Bills receive: </strong>No. 18 and 146 overall picks.</p> <p><strong>Seahawks receive:</strong> No. 22, 96, and 121 overall picks.</p>. Cornerback. UCF. Mike Hughes. 22. player. 36

The Seahawks are able to move back four spots, add extra picks and get who they would have taken at No. 18. Hughes is cut from a similar cloth as Seattle corners before him, including Richard Sherman.

While not being Sherman’s size, Hughes is strong and physical at the line. He can help fill the void at corner where Sherman and Jeremy Lane used to be. With Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor as safeties, it will give Hughes enough help while he gets acclimated to the NFL game. (Stephen)

Previous Pick: Bills trade pick to Colts

Will Hernandez. 23. player. 50. <em></em> <p><em>(TRADE)</em></p> <p><strong>Patriots receive: </strong>No. 20 and 117 overall picks.</p> <p><strong>Lions receive:</strong> No. 23 and 63 overall picks.</p>. Guard. UTEP

Hernandez offers a lot to the Lions, where he can be plug-and-play in his rookie season. He can play either right or left guard, and other than Quenton Nelson, he is the nastiest offensive lineman in this class.

Detroit needs to help out Matthew Stafford and give him some protection. The team also needs to begin to open up holes for their running backs. I could see the team going running back at some point, but with Barkley and Guice off the board, it makes sense for the team to go with a player that can make an immediate impact and they can pick up their top runner in the second after trading back with the Patriots and acquiring extra picks.

Previous Pick: James Daniels

24. player. 87. . Wide Receiver. Maryland. D.J. Moore

Despite being a good team, Carolina has some holes. Andrew Norwell recently departed for Jacksonville leaving a major void at guard. Jonathan Stewart recently signed with the New York Giants and despite the trade for Torrey Smith, the team is still looking for another receiving option after the trade of Kelvin Benjamin.

Moore could offer a major upgrade to the receiving corps in Carolina and help make them a passing offense. At some point, Cam Newton will have to ease up on running so much due to wear and tear, and giving him an option like Moore could do that. He has a similar style to former Panther great Steve Smith, which should be music to Panther fans’ ears. (Stephen)
