Washington would love for Minkah Fitzpatrick to fall to them here. Next they will look for a run stuffer in the middle and decide between Da’Ron Payne and Vita Vea.

Vea offers a blend of run stopper and pass rusher that will be too good to pass up. He will help the Redskins stop all the strong running back play that will be in the NFC East (Barkley to the Giants would make it even stronger). (Justin)

Previous Pick: Minkah Fitzpatrick

14. player. 49. . Cornerback. Iowa. Josh Jackson

Another mock, another Josh Jackson to the Packers prediction. This just continues to make too much sense for me to pick anything else. Much like Fitzpatrick to the Bears, Jackson is needed for a NFC North with the likes of Kirk Cousins, Mitchell Trubisky, Matthew Stafford, Marvin Jones Jr., Stefon Diggs, and so on.

Jackson has outstanding ball skills and can break on any route to either break up a pass or intercept it. Typically once the ball hits Jackson’s hands, he catches it. He can also high point a ball and stick to the hip of a receiver. Simply put, he makes plays and that is what Green Bay needs in their secondary. (Stephen)

Previous Pick: Unchanged

15. player. 45. <strong>Arizona Receives:</strong> No. 5 overall. <p><strong>Denver Receives</strong>: No. 15, 47, 152 and 2019 1st Round pick.</p>. Defensive End. UTSA. Marcus Davenport

Why would Denver want to fall this far???

Davenport has been reported as a favorite by many teams. Some have him ranked just under Bradley Chubb. IF they feel strongly about a prospect like Davenport, it would make a lot of sense. Also, the Cardinals roster looks terrible, so there is a chance that 2019 first-rounder will be a top 5 pick. Not a bad haul including the picks this year.

Davenport will line up opposite Von Miller and make offense’s worry. He may be raw, but give him repeated one on one chances, he could make a big impact year one. (Justin)

Previous Pick: Chicago selected Calvin Ridley
