2021 NFL Draft Round 2, Pick 22
The Cardinals are quickly becoming one of the most interesting young teams in the entire NFL. Most of that comes from their offensive attack, but their defense seems to be rounding into form nicely as well. In the second round of this 2021 NFL Draft scenario, the Cardinals make another exciting addition to their defensive mix by bringing in cornerback Asante Samuel Jr.
Samuel is an extremely quick cornerback who is smooth in coverage and closes on the ball in an instant. He is sticky in man coverage and shows some solid instincts in zone. Samuel is likely best suited for the slot at the next level but has played on the outside in college and holds his own just fine. Even if he ends up primarily being a slot cornerback, Samuel is a talented player who will make an impact at the next level.

The Buffalo Bills have done a nice job of finding weapons for Josh Allen the last couple of offseasons, but there is certainly still some room for improvement. Here, they swing for some upside at tight end by adding Brevin Jordan to the mix.
Jordan is an impressive athlete who is going to create consistent matchup issues for opposing defenses at the next level. He is an explosive player who can separate against man coverage and also shows a ton of upside as a playmaker with the ball in his hands. Jordan is not a great blocker at this point in his career, but he is a tough player who will do his best in those situations.
