13. Cleveland Browns: Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

The Cleveland Browns' interest in a wide receiver has been one of the draft's worst-kept secrets. Baker Mayfield is going into a make-or-break season and the Browns need to do everything they can to surround him with talent.

Ohio State's Garrett Wilson is one of the most pro-ready receivers in this draft class, and he could help bolster a Browns' receiver room that needs some help, especially if the team moves on from Jarvis Landry.

14. Baltimore Ravens: David Ojabo, EDGE, Michigan

The Davis Ojabo connection makes sense for the Ravens. Ojabo broke out in 2021 under the tutelage of defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald who has now left to re-join the Ravens with the same position title.

Pairing Ojabo with former high-school teammate Odafe Oweh would give the Ravens a pair of super athletes with extremely high ceilings at outside linebacker. Two reunions would be in order if this were to happen.

15. Philadelphia Eagles: Travon Walker, DL, Georgia

The Georgia defensive linemen showed out at the Combine, and I promise this won't be the last time you hear about a Georgia defensive lineman in this mock. But somewhat surprisingly, Travon Walker is the first one off the board here.

Walker's athleticism and versatility remind me a little of Rashan Gary and with the Philadelphia Eagles looking to get younger up front, he makes plenty of sense. This could be your future Brandon Graham replacement.

16. Philadelphia Eagles: Tyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa

Speaking of replacing longtime starters, the Eagles remain unsure of the status of center Jason Kelce who has been mulling retirement. If Kelce retires, Iowa's Tyler Linderbaum would be a perfect replacement.

Linderbaum has actually drawn favorable comparisons to Kelce given his athletic upside and NFL-ready skill set. He would be a plug-and-play starter and hopefully set the Eagles' offensive line up for another decade of dominance.
