The Browns made another smart move at No. 12, trading away their pick to the Houston Texans. Houston, a team with a desperate need at quarterback, landed Deshaun Watson. They’ll hope his winning Rugby Cheap Jerseys ways will carry over to the NFL.
The Cardinals need to think about life after Carson Palmer, but with the early run on quarterbacks in a weak class, it wasn’t really an option at No. 13. They did grab Haason Reddick, a linebacker with tremendous potential.
Next up, the Eagles addressed the pass rush, adding talented Tennessee product Derek Barnett at No. 14. The Colts continued to address the defensive deficiencies that plagued Indianapolis last season, snagging a safety with exceptional range in Ohio State’s Malik Hooker. Hooker is a solid value with the 15th pick.
It’s a deep draft for cornerbacks, and the Ravens filled a need and got one of the best in this class with Alabama’s Marlon Humphrey at No. 16. Baltimore added Brandon Carr this offseason, but still has a ways to go to strengthen the secondary.
Reuben Foster is still on the board at No. 15, but the Colts could make better use of the speed and athleticism of Reddick in the middle of the defense. In the second round, Indianapolis gives Andrew Luck — who has been injured for years now, literally — some much-needed protection.
Just like that, and the Titans secondary can go from a concern USA Cheap Jerseys to a strength. Here they add two SEC defensive backs, who would join former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan and former Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien. Giving Marcus Mariota some more tools to work with is still a priority, but the team’s pass defense — which finished No. 30 in yards allowed — stands to make significant strides in 2017.
