25. Minnesota Vikings: C.J. Henderson, CB, Florida
Death, taxes, and the Minnesota Vikings drafting defensive backs in round one. Xavier Rhodes‘ play in 2019 fell off a cliff, despite his Pro Bowl nod. There are no guarantees Trae Waynes is back in 2020, but C.J. Henderson remains a better option anyway.
26. Miami Dolphins (via Houston Texans): Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State
If you loved Brian Burns last season then you’re going to love Yetur Gross-Matos. YGM has some serious length and raw athleticism that a defensive-minded coach like Brian Flores would love to have. A day-one draft haul of Tua Tagovailoa, Tristan Wirfs, and Gross-Matos is a huge win for the Miami Dolphins.
27. Seattle Seahawks: Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
Similarly to Josh Jones, Mekhi Becton helped his 2020 NFL Draft stock quite a bit down in Mobile. Becton displayed some serious strength against some good edge-rushing talent. The Seattle Seahawks would love to plug him into their line and run behind him.
