31. Green Bay Packers: Nakobe Dean, LB, Georgia

It feels like the right play at this spot would be to add more help on offense for the Green Bay Packers but they seem to want to avoid that. On top of that, the fact that Jahan Dotson was taken a couple of picks prior to this makes it unlikely this team will grab any other receiver.

With that being the case, the Packers take Georgia linebacker Nakobe Dean at No. 31. Dean is a playmaker in every sense of the word as he can fly from one sideline to the other. Green Bay isn’t exactly weak in this area but they could stand to get younger and faster, something they accomplish with the selection of Dean.

32. Kansas City Chiefs: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

Early in the season, it seemed as though the Kansas City Chiefs would be forced to go with an offensive player given the struggles they were having. But then, the light bulb went off and they’re once again one of the most dangerous — if not the most dangerous — offenses in the league.

As if that wasn’t enough, their defense started to click as well. They’ve been vastly improved this season which is why they have climbed back on top of our power rankings. It’s also why they don’t feel pressured to look at any one position with this pick but instead can take the best player available.

In this mock, that happens to be Andrew Booth from Clemson. A strong cornerback prospect, Booth can compete with the current group in Kansas City for a starting spot right off the bat.

Worst case scenario, he affords them some nice depth at the spot.
