  • Wide Receiver | Georgia

With Calvin Ridley suspended for the season and Russell Gage no longer around, the Atlanta Falcons get themselves a dynamic prospect in the form of Garrett Wilson, who might just be the best prospect within a very deep class of wideouts.

Wilson looks like a stud and has all the necessary tools to become the latest college receiver to achieve notoriety in the pros straight away, which represents a problem for the Carolina Panthers. Whether Marcus Mariota can get him the ball effectively is another matter.

OT. Seattle Seahawks. IKEM EKWONU. 9. player. 36.

  • Offensive Tackle | North Carolina State

There is an obvious need to find a long-term solution at quarterback after the Seattle Seahawks traded Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos. But with Duane Brown not brought back, Pete Carroll opts to select his replacement on the blindside.

Ikem Ekwonu is a mauler that is set for great things at the next level. There is a high chance he goes a lot higher than this, but Seattle should not blink before turning in their card if presented with an opportunity.

WR. New York Jets. DRAKE LONDON. 10. player. 30.

The New York Jets get themselves another weapon for Zach Wilson to go alongside Cory Davis and Elijah Moore. Drake London is another outstanding talent and would undoubtedly give Robert Saleh three dynamic wide receivers that should ensure the former BYU product makes some giant leaps in Year 2 of his professional career.

Gang Green would obviously consider an edge rusher if one was available here. But London is not a bad consolation prize by any stretch of the imagination.
