21. Miami Dolphins- Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State

Tarvarus McFadden is a fast-rising cornerback prospect with tremendous upside. His ball skills are what really jump out. He is someone capable of pulling down a high number of interceptions. This is a skill that every NFL team covets.

The Miami Dolphins have a need at the cornerback position. McFadden could quickly become the team’s No. 1 corner.

22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have done a great job building their roster. They are a fast rising team that has their sights set on a playoff berth. However, Tampa Bay has some issues along the offensive line that could derail those hopes.

Donovan Smith has had his share of ups and downs playing left tackle. If he’s unable to keep Jameis Winston upright the Buccaneers could be in real trouble.

23. New York Giants- Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has had a solid run with the New York Giants, but his contract might make this his last year with the team. There was some talk early in this offseason that the Giants could make a move.

New York has spent a lot of resources improving their defense which included adding Rodgers-Cromartie, Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple. They would likely look to bring in some high-end talent if they cut ties with Roders-Cromartie.

Jaire Alexander and his elite ball skills would serve as a nice replacement for the veteran.

24. Buffalo Bills (via KC)- Luke Falk, QB, Washington State

Luke Falk would’ve been my highest rated quarterback had he entered this past year’s draft. He’s a solid athlete with a strong arm. Falk is different than previous quarterbacks who worked under Mike Leach. The biggest differences are his arm strength and his ability to go through progressions.

This past offseason the Buffalo Bills flirted with the idea of cutting ties with Tyrod Taylor. This shows they are still unsure of his long term potential.
