17. Los Angeles Chargers: Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia

Perhaps no player shined more at the NFL Combine than Jordan Davis. Davis set records few believed were possible and proved that he can be more than just a two-down player at the next level.

The Los Angeles Chargers need defensive line help, and adding a player like Davis who could play that Vita Vea role in Renaldo Hill's defense would go a long way.

18. New Orleans Saints: Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

The New Orleans Saints are desperate for wide receiver help. This is a team that was trotting out the likes of Ty Montgomery and Chris Hogan at the position last year.

Even with Michael Thomas hopefully set to return, adding a player like Jameson Williams makes a ton of sense. Williams is coming off a torn ACL, but it doesn't sound like that's expected to affect his draft stock very much.

19. Philadelphia Eagles: Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

With their third and final first-round pick, the Eagles selected one of the more unheralded prospects in this year's draft in Trent McDuffie.

McDuffie lacks the ideal physical traits that many of this draft's top cornerbacks have, but he makes up for it with everything else. He has inside/outside versatility and could pair well with Darius Slay on the outside or in the slot.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

Trevor Penning is exactly what the Pittsburgh Steelers need on their offensive line. Penning is a no-nonsense, nasty run-blocker with the athletic profile to give him a high ceiling in the NFL.

The Steelers are desperate for offensive line help, and while they could still use a quarterback, adding a player like Penning is a wiser move. Trevor Penning just feels like a player who belongs in the AFC North.
