25. Philadelphia Eagles: Cooper DeJean, CB, Iowa

The Eagles' defense went from aggressive, yet flawed, to a complete joke in record time. The secondary falling off a cliff has been the main culprit for this fall, and the playmaking DeJean should be an immediate starter if he is fully recovered from his injury.

26. Kansas City Chiefs: Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

You don't even have to know football to see that Kansas City's wide receivers were bordering on XFL quality. Worthy is a speed demon that will give Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs the verticality element they have missed since Tyreek Hill departed.

27. Houston Texans (via Cleveland Browns): Leonard Taylor, IDL, Miami

Houston has a strong edge rusher in Will Anderson, but DeMeco Ryans likely wants more long-term pieces in the front seven. Taylor can plug gaps on the interior, and he plays in a style not dissimilar to many of Ryans' best linemen from his days in San Francisco.

28. Detroit Lions: Kamari Lassiter, CB, Georgia

Detroit could add a receiver here, but the recent decline on the defensive side showed that Brian Branch needs another running mate in the secondary. Lassiter clamped the SEC's best regularly, and his athleticism gives him a Pro Bowl ceiling.

29. Buffalo Bills: Brian Thomas Jr, WR, LSU

The Bills need a No. 2 wide receiver, as Stefon Diggs is declining, and Gabe Davis will be given a big contract by someone else in free agency. Thomas may have had the benefit of playing next to Nabers, but his strong hands and route running will help him get picked in the first round.

2024 NFL Mock Draft: Edgerrin Cooper could start for the Cowboys

30. Dallas Cowboys: Edgerrin Cooper, LB, Texas A&M

In a class that is very thin on linebacker talent, Cooper has a chance to be the best of the bunch. The Cowboys need to prepare for the very real possibility that Leighton Vander Esch is done in the NFL, and Cooper gives them a solid guard against that due to his speed.

31. San Francisco 49ers: Graham Barton, IOL, Duke

San Francisco's biggest need might be the non-Trent Williams areas of the offensive line, which is where Barton comes into play. Offering guard-tackle versatility and solid mobility, Barton could become the undoubted top interior lineman in this class if he kicks inside full-time.

32. Baltimore Ravens: Blake Corum, RB, Michigan

Baltimore is always seemingly in the hunt for skill position players, but a bell-cow running back could be their biggest need if they don't make any free-agent additions. Like many of the Ravens' best backs, Corum is a sledgehammer in the backfield.
