29. Miami Dolphins: Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

The Miami Dolphins are all-in on Tua Tagovailoa this offseason — at least that's the impression they've given. I'd love to give them an offensive lineman here, but the value just wasn't there.

Instead, they add another promising wide receiver in Penn State's Jahan Dotson. I chose Doston over USC's Drake London as more of a projection pick, operating under the assumption Mike McDaniel is their choice of head coach. Dotson's skill set is tailor-made for a McDaniel/Kyle Shanahan offense.

30. Kansas City Chiefs: Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach has opted not to use significant capital on the cornerback position during his time in Kansas City. But with an obvious need this offseason, that changes here.

Washington's Trent McDuffie is one of the most underrated players in this class and it wouldn't surprise me to see him become an instant stud at the next level. He's a day-one starter in this homegrown Kansas City secondary.

31. Cincinnati Bengals: Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State

The Bengals have shocked the NFL world and made it all the way to the Super Bowl, but don't be fooled — this is still a roster with many holes. The offensive line needs to be addressed, but the value isn't there at this spot.

Instead, they add one of the draft's biggest risers in Colorado State tight end Trey McBride. C.J. Uzomah's injury history is a concern and he's hardly lit the world on fire when healthy. The Bengals add another young playmaker to their already-stacked receiving corps.

32. Detroit Lions: Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn

Roger McCreary is the fifth cornerback drafted in this mock providing further evidence of just how stacked this cornerback class is. I flirted with the idea of giving Detroit a quarterback here, but I just don't think any of the remaining prospects warrant the pick.

McCreary is a smart, high-upside cornerback prospect who should immediately compete for snaps as a rookie. He fills a position of need and gives Detroit another young defensive building block to pair with Aidan Hutchinson.

It doesn't hurt that the Lions coaching staff just coached him at the Senior Bowl either.

Best Remaining Prospects: S Jaquan Brisker (Penn State), CB Kaiir Elam (Florida), WR Drake London (USC), S Daxton Hill (Michigan), WR David Bell (Purdue), QB Desmond Ridder (Cincinnati), QB Sam Howell (North Carolina), EDGE Myjai Sanders (Cincinnati), LB Christian Harris (Alabama), EDGE Cameron Thomas (San Diego State), DT Devonte Wyatt (Georgia), OT Daniel Faalele (Minnesota), CB Kyler Gordon (Washington), OT Bernhard Raimann (Central Michigan)
