The Kansas City Chiefs look to continue their dominance over the LA Chargers with protection for Patrick Mahomes

29. Green Bay Packers: Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame

The Green Bay Packers need to address the offensive line and do so with an exciting prospect in Liam Eichenberg. Eichenberg would be the one player I would want the LA Chargers to draft if they were to trade back in the first round.

He has left tackle size and is capable of being a serviceable left tackle as early as Week 1 of his rookie season.

30. Buffalo Bills: Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson

I am not a huge fan of taking running backs in the first round but the Buffalo Bills take a page out of the Kansas City Chiefs’ book and take the best running back in the draft to add to a high-profile offense.

Zach Moss and Devin Singeltary are both fine running backs but neither are feature backs. And while Charger fans lauded how much the Bills threw the ball last year, they still need to have some sort of running game and it was a massive hole in the offense last season.

31. Kansas City Chiefs: Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

Samuel Cosmi is one of the most athletic tackles we have ever seen and while he is raw, he has experience on both sides of the offensive line and will get a chance to start right away on the Kansas City Chiefs, who need to add protection for Patrick Mahomes.

There might be some hiccups early on, but if Cosmi pans out with his athleticism, he will be great protection for Patrick Mahomes to help the Chiefs continue dominating the AFC West.

32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State

There might be some intrigue to draft a running back here but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers really do not need to add anyone to the running back room.

Instead, they draft an edge-rushing prospect that is a bit raw but has a lot of potential and could add to what is already a dangerous front seven in Tampa Bay.

4 defensive free agents that could still help the Bolts. Next
