17. Miami Dolphins- Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama

The Miami Dolphins defense has really struggled to stop the run so far this season. This issue is made more worrisome because of all the money they invested at the defensive tackle spot. The only real area where they can look to upgrade is at middle linebacker where Koa Misi just hasn’t developed into a top-notch player.

Alabama’s Reggie Ragland is a powerful linebacker who excels at making plays at the line of scrimmage. He shows good instincts and is quick to trust his reads. Ragland isn’t a great coverage linebacker but he’s athletic enough to keep from being exposed.

18. San Diego Chargers- Austin Johnson, DT, Penn State

Penn State’s Austin Johnson isn’t getting nearly enough attention as a draft prospect. He routinely dominates the line of scrimmage making it difficult for opposing offenses to establish a running game. Johnson is one of the better run defenders in the country thanks to his combination of size, strength and tenacity.

The Chargers are looking for a nose tackle capable of coming in and occupying blocks. Johnson would be a great fit for this role and could make an immediate impact.

19. Kansas City Chiefs- Corey Robinson, WR, Notre Dame

Adding Jeremy Maclin this offseason was a great move by the Kansas City Chiefs, but it didn’t solve their issues at wide receiver. In the NFL, offenses need several playmakers who are capable of creating mismatches. The Chiefs have Maclin, Travis Kelce and Jamaal Charles but need more.

I’ve said in the past that Notre Dame’s Corey Robinson reminds me of a raw version of Randy Moss. He features great length, body control and deceptive speed. Robinson needs to show more consistency and work on his route running but he’s a great talent with tons of upside.

20. New York Jets- Myles Garrett, Edge, Texas A&M

Myles Garrett is an impressive athlete who is quickly establishing himself as a nightmare threat off the edge. His long frame and commitment to use his hands makes it tough for blockers to get into his frame. He also has elite snap awareness and is routinely the first player out of his stance.

The New York Jets defense is going to generate plenty of pressure this season but that is mainly because of Todd Bowles’ system. They are relying heavily on blitz packages and the aging Calvin Pace to get after the quarterback. Adding an explosive pass-rusher like Garrett would allow Bowles to keep more defenders in coverage.
