2024 NFL Draft: National Championship MVP lands with a Super Bowl contender

NFL Draft Trade 2

Broncos made a trade to move up in the third round. They send the No. 76 and No. 121 overall picks in the the draft to the Arizona Cardinals for No. 66.

. Kris Jenkins. 66. Kris Jenkins. Kris Jenkins. player. 45. . DT, Michigan.

In trading up, the Broncos select the former Michigan defensive tackle.  At 6-foot-3, 299 pounds, Kris Jenkins is a run stopper who would fit nicely along the Broncos defensive line playing behind and next to D.J. Jones who is in the final year of his contract.

As an athletic force in the middle of the defensive line, Jenkins has tremendous update and could play his way to a start with the Broncos or any NFL team he lands with.  With Denver’s need to upgrade their defensive line, drafting a player like Jenkins could only help.

. Roman Wilson. Roman Wilson. . WR, Michigan. player. 28. Roman Wilson. . 77

Michigan’s top receiver during their championship run is drafted by the Raiders with the No. 77 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

At 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, Roman Wilson is a reliable target who can stretch the field.  Projected as more of a slot receiver, Wilson led Michigan with 48 receptions for 789 yards and was tied for 9th in the nation with 12 receiving TDs serving as a primary target for J.J. McCarthy.

The numbers won’t wow you, but his route-running will replace what the Raiders loss in the release of Hunter Renfrow.

. 93. Blake Corum. . RB, Michigan. . 26. Blake Corum. Blake Corum. player

The Ravens snag one of the top running backs in the 2024 NFL Draft and a back in Blake Corum who would absolutely flourish in the Ravens offense sharing the rock with Derrick Henry.  In fact, he would be the perfect complement to Henry as his 5-foot-8, 205-pound flame allows him to wiggle between tackles in short-yardage situations.  Coum has enough burst to break big plays and his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and pick up blitzes makes him a three-down back.  Perfect for the Ravens.
