No. 32: Baltimore Ravens — Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

Zay Flowers was the perfect addition to this offense, but another weapon wouldn’t hurt. NFL MVP favorite Lamar Jackson is at the peak of his powers; gifting him Troy Franklin, a lanky wideout with an impeccable release package off the line of scrimmage, only makes the rich richer.

Teams without a first-round pick in today’s mock draft

No. 33: Carolina Panthers — Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

The Panthers sold their proverbial soul for quarterback Bryce Young, making No. 33 overall a crucial selection for Carolina. Adonai Mitchell adds a jump-ball element that the offense currently lacks. The Longhorn star has reliable hands and should quickly become WR1 on the depth chart.

No. 44: San Francisco 49ers (via LV) — Kamari Lassiter, CB, Georgia

San Francisco traded out of Day 1, but the front office still acquires a premier defender at the midpoint of Round 2. Kamari Lassiter may play his way into the first round; as of now, the Georgia defender arrives to the Bay Area as a steal.

A hidden gem at wide receiver wraps up mock draft for Cleveland

No. 54: Cleveland Browns — Devontez Walker, WR, North Carolina

The Browns shocked many by winning 11 games through injury after injury. If quarterback Deshaun Watson is to return to form in 2024, he needs more than Amari Cooper at wide receiver. Luckily, Devontez Walker is still available on Day 2 of this mock draft.

Walker is often underrated in a wide receiver class full of talented pass catchers. However, the UNC product is as good as any separating downfield, and only a few of his peers can match his deep-ball tracking. He’s a home run at No. 54 overall.
