29. Dallas Cowboys- Josh Sweat, Edge, Florida State

The direction of this pick could change if DeMarcus Lawrence can stay healthy and produce. However, his history makes that questionable at best. The Dallas Cowboys used last year’s 1st round pick on Taco Charlton and could bookend him with someone like Josh Sweat.

That duo would give the Cowboys some real weapons off the edge. If Lawrence proves himself the Cowboys could look to add more talent at cornerback.

30. New England Patriots- Clelin Ferrell, Edge, Clemson

The New England Patriots defense lacks a true pass rushing threat outside of Trey Flowers. They have either traded away or let the other edge rushers leave via free agency. It’s possible that Bill Belicheck might have outsmarted himself a little.

Luckily, the 2018 NFL Draft if full of high-upside pass rushers. Clemson’s Clelin Ferrell is one of those prospects whose stock is steadily rising.

31. Atlanta Falcons- Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame

Quenton Nelson is a physical offensive lineman who fits the definition of a road grader. He absolutely loves moving defenders off the line of scrimmage. His athleticism also makes him a solid pass protector from his guard position.

I’m mocked an offensive guard to the Atlanta Falcons in several of my recent mock drafts. It just makes sense for them to continue to build their offensive line talent.

32. Oakland Raiders- Harold Landry, Edge, Boston College

Khalil Mack is an elite player who is still developing as a pass rusher. He is able to find success despite dealing with constant double teams. The Oakland Raiders need to another pass rush threat to work opposite Mack.

Harold Landry has the burst and balanced needed to get after the quarterback. He has had a long and successful college career. His physical abilities should allow him to continue that success in the NFL.
