Trevon Diggs. 21. player. 52. . CB. Jacksonville Jaguars

Pick via Rams

The once-vaunted Jaguars defense has fallen from grace this season, particularly as of late. They’ve been an absolute sieve against the run but their pass defense hasn’t been much to fall back on either, which makes sense given that they traded one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, Jalen Ramsey, to the Rams. That pick they traded is now used to essentially try and replace him as they select Trevon Diggs out of Alabama.

Diggs has not had a perfect 2019 season in Tuscaloosa but he has shown that he’s well worth being a first-round pick, especially at this position. He has the physical tools and speed that any team wants on the outside of their defense and, if he can be coached up with his footwork, hand-work and overall technique, he can be a force in the Jacksonville secondary moving forward.

22. player. 35. . EDGE. Tennessee Titans. K'Lavon Chaisson

Given how he’s played since taking over for Marcus Mariota, it’s hard to imagine a world where the Tennessee Titans don’t re-sign Ryan Tannehill and see if he can continue the reclamation of his career. Thus, quarterback is no longer a first-round need for the Titans and that leaves them in a place where they truly don’t have a number of glaring needs. However, they could well use K’Lavon Chaisson.

Tennessee has used Cameron Wake quite a bit this season and the veteran has performed quite well. That’s not a viable long-term option for the Titans opposite of Harold Landry, who has also shined this season, and Chaisson can be. He’s a versatile piece booming with athletic potential that still seemingly has not been fully tapped. While he’s a risky and potential developmental pick. Tennessee may shockingly be in a position to make that kind of pick at No. 22.
