The Buffalo Bills have been rumored to have Cordy Glenn on the trading block for a while now. It seems like an odd move, but a lot of their recent trades have worked out. If they do move Glenn they could replace him with Chukwuma Okorafor.

He’s an athletic offensive tackle prospect who is flying under the radar at the moment. However, he has a chance to be one of the first offensive linemen selected in the 2018 draft.

26. Minnesota Vikings- Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan

The Minnesota Vikings offseason will be pretty eventful as they need to pick a direction at quarterback. It’s possible they invest another 1st round pick on the position. However, they are just as likely to target a disruptive defensive tackle like Maurice Hurst.

27. Dallas Cowboys- Deon Cain, WR, Clemson

Dez Bryant has had a very good career and isn’t finished just yet. However, he has lost a step or two and the Cowboys could use a vertical threat. Deon Cain is an explosive athlete who has the speed to take the top off a defense. He would give the Cowboys that big-play threat the passing game is missing.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers- Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virginia Tech

Tremaine Edmunds is an emerging prospect who flashes the ability to be a major playmaker. He uses his athleticism and high motor to make plays from sideline to sideline. The Pittsburgh Steelers could slot Edmunds alongside Ryan Shazier at the inside linebacker position.

29. Seattle Seahawks- Clelin Ferrell, Edge, Clemson

The future of Cliff Avril is very much up in the air at the moment which would create a long-term void for the Seattle Seahawks. This is a franchise that puts a lot of their Super Bowl hopes on the shoulders of the defense.

They would need to find a replacement for Avril if he is unable to return. Clelin Ferrell is someone who can fill the role of an edge rusher. He is a prospect who continues to improve each and every week.

30. Buffalo Bills (via KC)- Cameron Smith, LB, USC

Earlier in this mock draft the Buffalo Bills added a left tackle in Chukwuma Okorafor. Now they add a potential captain of their defense. Cameron Smith is a heady football player who also has the quickness to make plays from sideline to sideline.

He would fill a need for the Bills who lack a true difference maker at the linebacker position. Buffalo could also use this pick on a quarterback if they decided to part way with Tyrod Taylor.

31. New England Patriots- Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Edge, Oklahoma

New England likes edge players who can get after the quarterback and set the edge against the run. This takes someone with features a combination of both quickness and strength. Oklahoma’s Ogbonnia Okoronkwo is a prospect who fits that mold.

32. Philadelphia Eagles- Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State

The Philadelphia Eagles have been lucky that Jason Peters has been so effective this late in his career. However, his recent season-ending injury could start to change their line of thinking. Jamarco Jones is a left tackle prospect who could serve as the long-term replacement for Peters.
