NFL Mock Draft: Baltimore Ravens get an exciting pass rusher
17: New York Giants – Kelvin Harmon, Wide Receiver, N.C. State (C)
The most underrated prospect in this entire draft class could be Kelvin Harmon, the player I have as my number one receiver. The Giants need to replace Odell Beckham Jr. for the long-term (remember this is a total rebuild and patience is the key). The Giants offense could have just found it’s big three with Harmon, Saquan Barkley and Evan Engram. If the Giants can just get one more year out of Eli Manning, they can draft a quarterback next year, with a better quarterback crop coming up.
18. Minnesota Vikings – Cody Ford, Offensive Lineman, Oklahoma (C)
The Vikings get a phenomenal value pick here that takes care of a big need. The entire offensive line is a place the Vikings need to get better. Ford is a right tackle from Oklahoma that is built like a guard. He’s a great athlete and he is a player that will be an instant starter either at guard or right tackle. This will help the Vikings offense, that has receiving talent already for Kirk Cousins.
19. Tennessee Titans – T.J. Hockenson, Tight End, Iowa (R)
Delanie Walker is another year older and is coming off a season-ending injury. Jonnu Smith could be something, but no tight end on the roster is even remotely as good as Hockenson is as a rookie. Hockenson could be the Titans go-to option in the receiving game and is a nasty run blocker for Derrick Henry. Hockenson is the complete package at tight end and would give the Titans a Pro Bowl caliber player in the passing game.
20. Pittsburgh Steelers – A.J. Brown, Wide Receiver, Ole’ Miss (C)
The Steelers have lost Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown and now they need to recoup some offensive talent. A.J. Brown will be an annoyingly good pick for the Steelers. He reminds me of a young Emanuel Sanders so I think he is the best fit at receiver for the Steelers. Brown was the go to player for Ole’ Miss and his production matches his strong tape. This is a home run of a pick for the Steelers.
21. Seattle Seahawks – Jonathan Abram, Safety, Mississippi State (R)
The Seahawks could take the instate kid in Taylor Rapp here, but instead go for the hot-headed Abram to be the new leader in the team’s barren secondary. The Legion of Boom has now lost all three of its core players following the departure of Earl Thomas, making the secondary a massive need. Abram might just be insane, and his hit-sticking mentality will have the 12’s going crazy. Abram is a tone-setter and a fearsome player on the field. Abram isn’t quite Kam Chancellor, but he’s the closest thing to him the Seahawks may ever see again.
