7. Tennessee Titans: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

Tennessee needs to get Will Levis some help, either at wide receiver or offensive tackle. Alt's giant 6-8 body and light feet make him the top prospect in this class. With Bill Callahan serving under his son Brian with the Titans, Alt can be trusted to keep Levis upright while the respected offensive line coach works his magic.

8. Atlanta Falcons: Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

After Turner ran a 4.46 40-yard dash, he confirmed that he isn't leaving the top half of the first round. Atlanta needs a difference-maker up front, and Turner's unique blend of speed and power makes him a natural for Raheem Morris' defense. The Falcons' defense is underrated already, and adding Turner would make them genuinely impressive.

9. Chicago Bears: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

It's easy to see a receiver like Odunze having success in the pros, as he has an NFL-ready 6-3, 215-pound frame with 4.4 speed and the best hands in this class. A wide receiver room led by Odunze and DJ Moore should make it easy for Williams to jump right in and start throwing darts all over Soldier Field.

NFL Mock Draft: NY Jets opt for offensive line over wide receiver

10. New York Jets: Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

The Jets' need for offensive linemen is as dire as any team in the league, and Fashanu might be the best pass protector in the draft. Even after his 2023 season wasn't as impressive as his 2022 campaign, New York needs an ultra-athletic tackle like Fashanu to keep Aaron Rodgers upright in a pivotal season.

11. Minnesota Vikings: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

If the Vikings don't end up drafting a quarterback, they need to address a thinning defensive line that could also use a Danielle Hunter replacement. Verse was purely unblockable at times this season, and with 31 reps on the bench press, his upper body strength for a speed rusher is remarkable. Minnesota's defense wouldn't skip a beat adding Verse into the mix.

12. Denver Broncos: JJ McCarthy, QB, Michigan

McCarthy has a ton of flaws, as he never needed to win games with his arm alone in college and lacks amazing deep accuracy. The Broncos still need to find a replacement for Russell Wilson, and Sean Payton will likely be very interested in bringing a young signal-caller with a plus arm, great mobility, and accuracy on the move to Denver.
