Ravens get explosive wide receiver, Chiefs add another playmaker in final 4 picks of 2024 NFL Draft

No.29: Detroit Lions - Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

Another cornerback that could elevate himself to top cornerback status, the Lions are ecstatic to add this type of talent to their cornerback room at the 29th pick. Wiggins' character and talent fit the Detroit Lions like a glove. 

No.30: Baltimore Ravens - Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

2024 NFL Draft: Troy Franklin

Tory Franklin provides a nice counter to what last year's first-rounder, Zay Flowers, brings to the team. The Ravens only have Flowers, Rashod Bateman, and Tylan Wallace under contract for 2024. It is paramount for this offensive scheme that the Ravens continue to stock the cabinet with versatile receivers. Franklin is a perfect fit for this Ravens team.

No.31: San Francisco 49ers - Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington

The 49ers traded for Commanders edge defender Chase Young, but he might get a chance to test free agency in 2024. Such is the price to pay for a shot at the championship. The 49ers need offensive lineman talent, but the 49ers won't take one this early. Trice fits in opposite Nick Bosa, as the 49ers know they can't acquire cheap talent, with Trice's profile, on a long-term deal.

No. 32: Kansas City Chiefs - Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

The Super Bowl champions will have plenty of receiving options available here, but at this point, only one prospect can provide game-breaking speed, and that's Worthy from Texas. The comparisons to Tyreek Hill will be overplayed as Worthy is more of a one-for-one replacement for Marquez Valdes-Scantling. This addition would unlock an element missing from Kansas City for a few seasons now.
