Tony Conner. 28. player. 123. Current Dallas Cowboys strong safety Barry Church is solid in run support. But in coverage, he’s not fast or athletic enough to keep up. So the Cowboys get a safety that was a nickel corner last year and <a href=. SS. Mississppi

New England Patriots’ No. 29 pick forfeited.

The Green Bay Packers could use a little help on their defensive front-7. And they have a chance to  get one of the most intriguing prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Packers can use him in a number of ways, including replacing an aging Julius Peppers.. DE. Baylor. Shawn Oakman. 30. player. 49

46. The Indianapolis Colts picked a receiver that wasn’t needed or the best player on the board in the first round in 2015. And their inability to stop the run cost them big-time in the playoffs. So they go ahead and get their bowling ball of a nose tackle in 2016.. NT. Baylor. Andrew Billings. 31. player

36. The Seattle Seahawks improved their passing game with the trade for tight end Jimmy Graham. The running game is still there with Marshawn Lynch as well as the defense. A big-time receiver in the first round could keep the Seahawks on top.. WR. Colorado State. Rashard Higgins. 32. player
