First Round | Picks 21 - 32

No. 21) MIA selects Graham Barton - IOL, Duke

Barton is a versatile player who can line up at multiple positions, and the Dolphins should feel great about picking him near the end of the first. Barton primarily played tackle in college and could succeed there in the NFL, but he will most likely end up a guard, a position the Dolphins could certainly use.

No. 22) DEN (via PHI) selects Bo Nix - QB, Oregon

After trading back and amassing more draft capital, the QB-needy Broncos still elect to take Nix in the first round. Nix is a complicated prospect, who showed a lot of ups and downs throughout a long college career, but his accuracy may be his biggest asset, and he could fit nicely in Sean Payton's offense.

No. 23) CHI (via CLE through HOU, MIN, ARI) selects Xavier Worthy - WR, Texas

Thanks to the mocked trade with the Cardinals, the Bears are back on the clock, and elect here to add a dynamic offensive playmaker in Worthy. The super-speedy first-round receivers of late seem to disappoint throughout their careers but do not get it confused, Worthy is a football player first, and a track star second. Adding him to a receiver room of D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen would diversify the skillsets that Williams would have to work with as a rookie.

No. 24) DAL selects J.C. Latham - OT, Alabama

Drafting offensive linemen has been the Cowboy's identity over the past decade-plus, and Latham is an uber-athletic tackle who needs a bit of developing to truly unlock his potential. Fortunately, he likely would not need to start right away, and he could eventually become a dominant presence at the right tackle position in Dallas.

No. 25) GB selects Amarius Mims - OT, Georgia

Like Latham, Mims is an extremely athletic yet inexperienced tackle, but that should not stop the Packers from adding him with this pick. The Packers need help at offensive tackle, and while Mims might not be the answer in 2024, he could eventually turn into Jordan Love's primary edge protector.

No. 26) TB selects Nate Wiggins - CB, Clemson

The Buccaneers need help at the cornerback position, and Wiggins would be a terrific answer. One of the fastest and smoothest players in this class, Wiggins needs to become a little more physical as a tackler to develop into a true number-one corner.

No. 27) CHI (via HOU through ARI) selects Jackson Powers-Johnson - IOL, Oregon

With their third and final first-round pick, the Bears pick up an immediate starter at a position of need in Powers-Johnson. With a big frame and experience at the position, the center could be the answer at a position that the Bears have struggled to figure out in recent seasons.

No. 28) BUF selects Adonai Mitchell - WR, Texas

It is no secret that the Bills need to add weapons for Josh Allen, and here they find a premier one in Mitchell. Mitchell's size and speed make him a bonafide deep threat, and with Allen's arm, the two would certainly have some big play potential in Buffalo's offense.

No. 29) DET selects Darius Robinson - EDGE, Missouri

Ideally, the Lions should find a pass rusher to play opposite Aidan Hutchinson, but a versatile player like Robinson could be even better. A long, thick lineman, Robinson can play inside or out, and seeing the Missouri product line up next to Hutchinson would be a scary sight for any offensive line.

No. 30) BAL selects Kool-Aid McKinstry - CB, Alabama

The opportunities to find a Nick Saban-coached defensive back are dwindling, and here the Ravens pounce on the chance to add one of the best in McKinstry. A physical and handsy press cornerback, McKinstry would fit in Baltimore's defense, which was decimated in free agency.

No. 31) SF selects Jer'Zhan Newton - DT, Illinois

After losing multiple defensive linemen in free agency, the 49ers find Nick Bosa a running mate in Newton. A smaller 3-technique, Newton is a pure penetrator as a pass rusher but is still able to hold his own against the run.

No. 32) KC selects Ennis Rakestraw Jr. - CB, Missouri

After trading away L'Jarius Sneed earlier this offseason, the team finds an immediate replacement in Rakestraw. The Missouri product is strong in coverage and is a willing tackler, and he would fit in well in Steve Spagnuolo's aggressive defensive unit.
