25. Los Angeles Chargers: Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah
The Los Angeles Chargers have turned into a very fun team to watch. Their offense is full of big-name players led by quarterback Justin Herbert, running back Austin Ekeler, and wide receiver Keenan Allen. They could use a young tight end in this group as well but head coach Brandon Staley has a defensive background and that leads to the selection of Devin Lloyd.
The Utah linebacker proved to be a three-down player this year and that puts him in line to be the first at his position taken in this class.
26. Dallas Cowboys: Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia
Over the past couple of weeks, the Dallas Cowboys offense has been stagnant whereas the defense has been playing lights out. Even so, there doesn’t seem to be a player they should take on offense at this point — unless they feel like it’s the best way to replace Michael Gallup who could be gone in free agency.
Even so, it feels as though they will continue to give Dan Quinn more weapons on that side of the ball and there’s not a bigger one than Jordan Davis available. Davis stands in at 6-foot-6 and 345-pounds and is exactly the type of player their defensive line is missing.
His ability to shut down the run is impressive but he can also generate a pass rush as a 3-technique. Should Dallas be able to retain Randy Gregory, they could end up with one of the best defensive lines in football with Davis, Gregory, and DeMarcus Lawrence. Throw in linebacker Micah Parsons and quarterbacks will hate standing in the pocket against this team.
