25. Buffalo Bills: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson
It’s now a run on cornerbacks as three in a row are taken. At No. 25 is the Buffalo Bills who have been a good team since Josh Allen arrived. They’re trying to win their second-consecutive AFC East title and they’re having to do so without Tre’Davious White who suffered a knee injury.
Adding a cornerback here in Andrew Booth from Clemson will not only help White ensure he’s fully healthy before he returns but it will give them a dynamic combination when the two are healthy together.
Over the past two seasons, Booth has recorded 64 tackles (six for a loss) and three picks. He’s a player who is trending upward and that could lead to him landing in Round 1.
26. Cincinnati Bengals: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa
Ja’Marr Chase has been an absolute stud this season for the Cincinnati Bengals. He’s pulled down 79 receptions for 1,429 yards with 13 touchdowns. He was a great pick in 2021 as was Joe Burrow in 2020. Burrow is also blowing up in 2021 with 4,611 yards and 34 touchdowns on the season.
Clearly, this team knows how to draft. Here, they add another potential stud in Trevor Penning, although he won’t put up insane numbers like Burrow and Chase. What he can do, is solidify the offensive line. Penning is likely a right tackle but with Jonah Williams already on the left, things could look much better for them in 2022.
