5. New York Giants - Ikem Ekwonu, OT NC State

Andrew Thomas has begun to solidify himself as the Giants' future at left tackle, but the rest of the offensive line is still subpar. Brian Daboll's first pick see's Ekwonu, an offensive tackle who could slide to guard in the NFL, brought in to offer protection for Daniel Jones.

6. Carolina Panthers - Malik Willis, QB Liberty

In what is likely a make-or-break season for Panthers coach Matt Rhule, Carolina takes a flier on highly intriguing QB prospect Malik Willis. The Liberty product has all the tools to be a franchise QB in the NFL.

7. New York Giants - David Ojabo, EDGE Michigan

After taking Ekwonu with their first pick, the Giants circle back and take a pass rusher with their second pick. Ojabo is a raw but very talented prospect that will strive in new defensive coordinator Don 'Wink' Martindale's heavy blitz 3-4 scheme.

8. Atlanta Falcons - Charles Cross, OT Mississippi St

Keeping Matt Ryan upright will be paramount for the Falcons as the QB moves into the latter years of his career. After years of offensive line turbulence, Atlanta takes OT Charles Cross to settle down the unit upfront. Cross' ability in a zone-blocking scheme will make him very appealing to Falcons head coach Arthur Smith.
