27. Philadelphia Eagles: Taylor Rapp, S Washington
The Philadelphia Eagles don’t have a ton of holes when you look at them on paper, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have areas that they could improve. Their defensive backfield has been suspect at times this season making the selection of Rapp a reasonable one. Rapp wouldn’t need to start right away but could make an impact early and get worked in as the season progresses.
28. New England Patriots: Christian Wilkins, DT Clemson
The best player available strategy is one that many people associate with the New England Patriots. I don’t see why it would be any different this year. The Patriots could use another playmaker at wide receiver, they also need a lot of help on the defensive side of the ball. At this point in the draft, the best player is probably Christian Wilkins from the outstanding Clemson defensive line. Another guy from this defensive line that can make a week one impact, Wilkins provides value immediately, something that has to be important to a team trying to maximize their window with Tom Brady.
