25. Buffalo Bills: Devonte Wyatt, DT, Georgia

The Buffalo Bills love having defensive line depth. I considered giving them Boston College guard Zion Johnson here but instead opted for additional help on their defensive interior in the form of another Georgia defensive tackle, Devonte Wyatt.

Wyatt is the least-known of the three Georgia defensive linemen, but his talent and upside shouldn't be overlooked. The 23-year-old also showed out at the Combine and should be an instant-impact contributor early in his career.

26. Tennessee Titans: Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

The run on wide receivers continues with Penn State's Jahan Dotson landing with the Tennessee Titans. Dotson is a speedy downfield threat who could add a new element to the Titans' offense.

The Titans need to add more to their wide receiver room and Dotson offers the speed and explosiveness they're looking for. Ryan Tannehill gains a new weapon entering a crucial 2022 season.

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

How about another wide receiver? Even with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers expected to retain Chris Godwin, they could use another wide receiver to pair with him and Mike Evans.

The thought of someone like Treylon Burks in that offense is downright scary, even with the question mark at quarterback. A trio of Evans, Godwin, and Burks would probably be the most physically-overpowering wide receiver trio in the NFL.

28. Green Bay Packers: Boye Mafe, EDGE, Minnesota

This is the first real surprise of this mock. Boye Mafe isn't a super popular name when it comes to most first-round mock drafts out there, but the Minnesota product could sneak into the back-half of the first when all is said and done.

Mafe has the physical and athletic upside teams are looking for and has been quickly rising up draft boards. With Za'Darius Smith an expected cap casualty, the Packers add a high-ceiling pass rusher as his replacement.
