28. Cincinnati Bengals: Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia

After losing Hayden Hurst, the Bengals have a sizeable hole at tight end. What better way to fill that than with a player who can double as an extra offensive tackle like Darnell Washington? The big Georgia tight end can be a weapon down the seam or pave running lanes on the ground. Either way, he would be an asset to an already great offense.

29. New Orleans Saints: Bryan Bresee, DT, Clemson

The upside of a player like Bryan Bresee starts to become pretty intriguing at this point in the draft. While you don't know what you're getting exactly or how long it will take him to develop, Bresee has all the traits to become one of the best interior pass rushers in time.

30. Philadelphia Eagles: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

I don't think there's any chance a smart organization like the Eagles considers a running back with the 10th overall pick, but if Bijan Robinson makes it to pick 30, I could see Philly getting on board. Even with some fairly significant losses this offseason, the Eagles are a talented enough team to go with a player who could help put them over the top right now.

31. Kansas City Chiefs: Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

The Chiefs lost both of their starting offensive tackles this offseason, so this becomes a huge priority in the NFL Draft. Though they did sign Jawaan Taylor in free agency, they could still use another tackle. Anton Harrison is the best remaining pass protector of the group and Kansas City could plug him in as the new blindside protector for Patrick Mahomes.
