Two defenses the LA Chargers face in 2021 add first-round talents
26. Cleveland Browns: Christian Barmore, IDL, Alabama
The Cleveland Browns were much better on the offensive side of the football than the defensive side in 2021 and have addressed the defense thus far this offseason. The Browns smartly addressed the secondary in free agency and with Farley off the board, the Browns turn to the interior defensive line.
Cleveland gets a big-bodied bruiser in Christian Barmore who is a bit raw, but helps shore up the inside and will benefit from playing alongside Myles Garrett.
27. Baltimore Ravens: Trevon Moehig, S, TCU
The Ravens could go with a guard with this pick but I think the team will end up waiting until the second round to do so. With the 27th pick, the Ravens take the first safety off the board in Trevon Moehig.
The Ravens never really replaced Earl Thomas after releasing him last season and they could certainly use help at the safety position. They get a bonafide free safety in Trevon Moehig who gives the team another ballhawk to take the ball away.
28. New Orleans Saints: Terrance Marshall Jr, WR, LSU
The New Orleans Saints are one of the weirdest teams to gauge. With Michael Thomas having a bad 2020 and an offensive change with Jameis Winston under center, it makes sense for the Saints to go with a receiver.
The receiving corps is pretty thin. As mentioned, Thomas is in a weird position and the Saints lost Emmanuel Sanders and tight end Jared Cook (to the LA Chargers).
With the 28th overall pick, the Saints take a hometown prospect in Terrance Marshall Jr, who had a great season in 2020 and can play both out wide and in the slot.
