The Rich Get Richer

No. 27: San Francisco 49ers — Kamren Kinchens, DB, Miami

San Francisco is stacked across the board, making a mock draft prediction difficult. In a perfect world, the Niners would upgrade one of the trenches. However, a ball-hawking safety with an All-Pro upside is too much to pass up. Kamren Kinchens has stamped his place as the top safety in the class.

No. 28: Jacksonville Jaguars — Cooper DeJean, DB, Iowa

The Jaguars are quickly rising the ranks, but help in the secondary is necessary to reach the upper echelon of teams. Cooper DeJean can play safety or cornerback in the NFL thanks to his impressive size, elite athletic profile, and sky-high football IQ.

No. 29: Baltimore Ravens — Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

The Ravens have the talent to go on a Super Bowl run in 2023, but regardless of how this season turns out, Baltimore needs another cornerback. Terrion Arnold, the second Alabama cornerback in this mock draft, has elevated his stock with his aggressive play style and fluid movement downfield.

No. 30: Detroit Lions — Emeka Egbuka, WR, Ohio State

At 8-2, the Lions are firmly on the Super Bowl radar. One area they could stand to improve is at wide receiver, though. Amon-Ra St. Brown is the real deal, but Jameson Williams has been disappointing — to say the least. Emeka Egbuka gives Detroit another polished route runner with deceptive ability after the catch.

No. 31: Kansas City Chiefs — J.T. Tuimoloau, DL, Ohio State

Of course, the Chiefs would end up with one of the most talented players in the class. J.T. Tuimoloau, when locked in, is as good as any defender in the class. However, JTT is rarely locked in. Landing with Kansas City in a locker room of veteran winners, Tuimoloau would be forced to stay engaged on a weekly basis.

No. 32: Philadelphia Eagles — Tyler Guyton, OL, Oklahoma

The Eagles have boasted one of the best offensive lines for the past decade. With age starting to catch up, the unit must bring in a youthful presence. Tyler Guyton is 6-foot-7, weighs 323 pounds, and displays an edge in the run game. If his pass protection is cleaned up, Philly will have its long-term Lane Johnson replacement.
