11. Tennessee Titans: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

Good offensive tackles don't last long in the NFL Draft, and Paris Johnson Jr. has the size, length, traits, and pedigree that could make him a long-time starting left tackle in the NFL. Meanwhille, the Titans recently cut former Pro Bowler Taylor Decker in an effort to save money, and they need an offensive tackle to fill the void. This is a great selection at this point.

12. Houston Texans: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

After taking their quarterback with the second overall pick, the Texans look to get their new signal-caller some help. Jordan Addison is an option here, but I have Houston opting for the TCU's Quinten Johnston. The 6'4'' wide-out has a large catch radius and can really move with the ball in his hands. He could develop into a quarterback's best friend early in his career.

13. New York Jets: Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

Short arms and all, Peter Skoronski is just too good of a prospect to fall much further than this in the NFL Draft. While he may very likely be forced to transition inside to guard at the next level, that won's stop the Jets from bolstering their offensive line. Skoronski is one of the most complete players in the draft.

14. New England Patriots: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Jordan Addison has been a name in connection with the Pittsburgh Steelers since very early in the pre-draft process thanks to his time spent at Pitt as the elite season he had with Kenny Pickett leading the charge. With wide receiver being a coveted position, it's possible that Addison could go even higher than this. However, I have the Patriots snatching up the outstanding route-runner to give Mac Jones a go-to target on offense.
