19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

The Buccaneers might as well pick a name out of a hat. They need just about everything. Knowing that a QB change is coming, why not get them a quarterback's best friend in a pass-catcher who can dominate over the middle of the field like Dalton Kincaid? In a strong tight end class, Kincaid might be the best of the group and is worthy of a first-round selection.

20. Seattle Seahawks: Brian Branch, DB, Alabama

You can call him a nickel cornerback or a safety; it doesn't really matter. Brian Branch is a quality player with an excellent football IQ that will help him transition into becoming a good pro. However, there's not as much value in this type of player as there is with a dominant boundary cornerback. Still, Branch could be a building block in helping Seattle's secondary get back to their impressive status once more.

21. Los Angeles Chargers: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

The Chargers' offense couldn't seem to stay healthy last season. This year, they could prove to take a massive step forward with a clean bill of health. That could especially be the case if they land a player like Michael Mayer. The Notre Dame product is an old-school tight end who will help Los Angeles in both the running game and passing game. He could step into a big role from the gate.

22. Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

I thought about going with Quinten Johnston for this pick, but the Ravens have missed on far too many receivers and they may not feel they can afford to gamble on the upside at this point. Jordan Addison projects as a stable WR2 in the NFL, but among a lackluster group, he could instantly develop into one of the best pass-catchers on the team.
