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

Trevor Penning's draft stock is on the rise following an impressive performance at the Senior Bowl, and his nasty demeanor is exactly what the Chargers' offensive line needs.

The Chargers were able to land their left tackle of the future in Rashawn Slater a year ago. This year, they add a mean FCS product to hopefully solidify the right tackle position.

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

It's hard to say just how much Jameson Williams' ACL injury will affect his draft stock. Regardless, I still think he's a first-round prospect and a perfect fit for the Saints right here.

I was tempted to go quarterback, but I think the Saints are more likely to address that via free agency or a trade. They're desperate for wide receiver help and add someone who could provide a huge boost to whatever QB they bring in.

19. Philadelphia Eagles: Tyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa

The Eagles are back for the final time and they manage to land one of the safest players in this draft class. It's almost unfair to slot Tyler Linderbaum to the Eagles at this spot.

The Eagles have long prided themselves on their offensive line, and with Jason Kelce the center of retirement rumors, they draft their long-term replacement in a player who's very reminiscent of a young Kelce.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kenyon Green, OL, Texas A&M

The Steelers' interest in Malik Willis was one of the worst-kept secrets of the Senior Bowl, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them attempt to trade up to grab him. But with Willis off the board, they pivoted to the offensive line.

Kenyon Green is a super versatile prospect who can start at either guard or tackle early. That's good news for a Steelers team that needs help all over the offensive line, especially with Trai Turner and Chukwuma Okorafor set to be free agents.
