29: Detroit Lions: Troy Fautanu, OL, Washington

With how things are currently going for Troy Fautanu, he will be picked much higher than this. Detroit runs to the podium to take Fautanu as he will be their next starting tackle at some point in time. The Lions understand the importance of the trenches and they know that constantly investing up front is important. The value of this pick is there, and it was too hard to pass.

31: San Francisco 49ers: T.J. Tampa, CB, Iowa State

In today's NFL, two super important positions are receiver and cornerback. San Francisco has a great defense up front. They could use an upgrade at corner and they decide to take T.J. Tampa out of Iowa State. This might be seen as a reach, but he might not be there by the time they select in the second round. Cornerbacks are flying off the board, so the 49ers decided to take one now.

32: Kansas City Chiefs: Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

This would be a perfect way to end night one of the draft. Kansas City takes Ladd McConkey with the final pick of this first-round mock draft. He would be a perfect fit and immediately become Patrick Mahomes' favorite receiver. He has a ton of separation skills and someone who has done nothing but excel in the pre-draft process. A perfect fit for the Chiefs.
