19. Indianapolis Colts: Quinnen Williams, DT Alabama
The Indianapolis Colts biggest victory this season is the return of Andrew Luck to the lineup and elite quarterback status. Without him, the Colts don’t scare anybody, but with him, they are a competitive team a couple pieces away from being a true competitor. They need to upgrade along their defensive line and luckily the best player available at this point plays there. Quinnen Williams is a terrific football player and NFL prospect. He does everything expected of an elite defensive tackle plus he is an excellent pass rusher from the inside racking up eight sacks this season, a trait that is at a premium in the NFL right now.
20. Tennessee Titans: Dexter Lawrence, DT Clemson
Another team benefitting from the depth at the defensive tackle position in this year’s draft is the Tennessee Titans. Dexter Lawrence is probably better than the twentieth overall pick would suggest but in a draft that is absolutely loaded with talented defensive lineman teams may pass on some with the knowledge there will still be talented players available on day two. Lawrence is an incredible athlete and a big bodied guy. He doesn’t bring the pass rush presence yet of someone like Quinnen Williams but may be the best run defender in the class.
