The Seahawks Benefit From Runs At Other Positions, Stealing Brock Bowers In This Mock Draft
No. 15: Seattle Seahawks — Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia
It’s hard to believe Brock Bowers will last until No. 15 overall, but if the forecasted run on quarterback, wide receiver, and offensive tackle come to fruition, it’s well within reason. The Seahawks, per usual, benefit by adding a supremely talented pass catcher in Bowers.
No. 16: Pittsburgh Steelers — Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson
Joey Porter Jr. is a hit for the front office, but the facelift at cornerback should continue at the 2024 NFL Draft. In today’s mock draft, the Steelers take Nate Wiggins out of Clemson. Wiggins displays exceptional recovery ability, and at times, it looks like he has eyes in the back of his head.
No. 17: Arizona Cardinals (via HOU) — Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State
Head coach Jonathan Gannon got his quarterback a weapon earlier in the mock draft -- now he gets to go shopping for himself. Chop Robinson shows arguably the best bend in the class and racks up pressures like Kanye West racks up controversy. (That’s a lot).
Keon Coleman Is Exactly What Josh Allen Needs To Get Bills Over The Top
No. 18: Buffalo Bills — Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State
Gabe Davis is far too inconsistent to trust as the WR2 in Buffalo. Keon Coleman, on the other hand, checks every box physically and shows better technique than Davis. Coleman is billed as a jump ball specialist, but don’t sell his athleticism short after the catch.
No. 19: Tampa Bay Buccaneers — J.C. Latham, OT, Alabama
Baker Mayfield has shown enough to earn a contract extension in the offseason. To help Mayfield’s chances of continued success, placing J.C. Latham opposite Tristan Wirfs would go a long way. Latham boasts refined hand usage on tape, backed up by his experience at Alabama.
No. 20: Minnesota Vikings — J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan
The Vikings may re-sign Kirk Cousins on a short deal, but no matter his future with the franchise, it shouldn’t stop the front office from actively seeking a long-term option. J.J. McCarthy needs work, but few coaches are better equipped to smooth out his rough edges than Kevin O’Connell. McCarthy has the arm talent to seize a starting role on Sundays.
