Jackson Powers-Johnson. C. Oregon. . Jackson Powers-Johnson. 57. Jackson Powers-Johnson. 15. . player

Back to the Bears at pick no. 15, and they opt to go with the draft's top interior offensive lineman, addressing a huge need. Jackson Powers-Johnson was a unanimous All American in 2023 and comes in as close to a sure thing as you can get at his position. Now, the offensive line is going to look a whole lot better for years to come. You have two big-time anchors in Powers-Johnson and Darnell Wright, with Teven Jenkins potentially being a long-term solution as well.

Byron Murphy II. DL. Byron Murphy II. 16. . Byron Murphy II. 15. . Texas. player

At pick no. 16, the Saints end up with a player they probably would have taken at 14 anyways, with Texas defensive tackle Byron Murphy II. As the draft's top defensive tackle next to maybe Illinois' Jer'Zhan Newton, Murphy comes in to give this Saints defensive line a youthful boost.

Cooper DeJean. 52. Cooper DeJean. 17. Iowa. player. Cooper DeJean. . CB.

Another guy that fell due to the run on quarterbacks goes later than anticipated, with Iowa cornerback Cooper DeJean landing on the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars needed help at cornerback, and they've got it here with a 6-foot-1 corner who can play outside or inside.
