21: Miami Dolphins: Graham Barton, OL, Duke

Miami could use some help on both sides of the ball. They stick to the offensive line here as they will need to figure out if Tua is the quarterback to stick with. Graham Barton is a versatile offensive lineman who will give them plenty of options. He can start at tackle, guard, or center. A valuable pick here that allows the Dolphins to figure out the perfect configuration of starters in the trenches.

22: Philadelphia Ealges: Jer'Zhan Newton, DT, Illinois

It was just announced that Fletcher Cox will be retiring from the game of football. He had a tremendous career in Philadelphia. With that in mind, the Eagles turn their attention to a replacement. They select Jer'Zhan Newton out of Illinois. He is an explosive defensive lineman and one of the few in this class who deserves to be selected in the top round.

Wide receiver. . player. 10. . . Troy Franklin. 23. Franklin. Troy Franklin

23: Houston Texans: Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

Adding some more weapons to help your young quarterback is never a bad thing. Houston could use some extra help on offense, especially after Tank Dell went down with an injury last season. They have some good pieces on offense, but getting younger and adding a deep threat with Troy Franklin would only help their offense.

player. . Zach Frazier. . Center. . Zach Frazier. 24. 123. Frazier

24: Dallas Cowboys: Zach Frazier, C, West Virginia

Dallas has a couple of holes that they need to fill in the offseason. Trying to find a center in free agency isn't too likely. We know they have limited resources in terms of cap. They will try and build in certain voids via the draft. Zach Frazier would be a shocking pick in the first round, but he would be a brilliant replacement for Tyler Biadasz as their starting center.
