17. Los Angeles Chargers: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

Trevor Penning to the Chargers has been a popular pick over the last couple of months, and for good reason. Penning has the attitude that the Chargers are looking to add to their offensive line.

After landing their left tackle of the future in Rashawn Slater last year, the Chargers look to solidify the right side of their offensive line with Penning.

18. Philadelphia Eagles, Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia

The Eagles ultimately decided to bring back Fletcher Cox, but he's a free agent next offseason and clearly isn't a long-term solution. That's where Jordan Davis comes into play.

Davis could go as high as 14 to the Ravens, but he slides a little, and the Eagles land a player who could become a stalwart of their defense for the next decade.

19. New Orleans Saints: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

This is the first real shock of the draft, and it's one brought out of necessity. The Saints really need to address offensive tackle, and with the top options all gone, they reach a little with Central Michigan's Bernhard Raimann.

Raimann could compete with veteran James Hurst for the starting left tackle job as a rookie as New Orleans looks to replace Terron Armstead for the foreseeable future.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Malik Willis, QB, Liberty

There's just too much smoke around Mailk Willis to the Steelers for it not to happen, right? Willis is my personal top quarterback in this class, and while he probably shouldn't start early in his career, he does have the raw physical traits that will intrigue teams.

This is a prime spot for a trade-up as the Steelers may feel the need to move up to secure their quarterback of the future. But in a mock with no trades, they let him fall all the way to pick 20.
