3. Houston Texans: Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame
The Houston Texans enter this offseason with the unwanted distinction of having one of the worst rosters in the NFL. If we are being honest, it’s a surprise they didn’t lock up the No. 1 seed, but then again, playing against the Jaguars twice can help with that.
There’s no shortage of positions they could target and while quarterback could be the way to go, they choose the best player available in this mock — because let’s be honest, no quarterback is succeeding there right now.
Kyle Hamilton from Notre Dame ends up being that pick and he gives them a player capable of moving all around the secondary and creating problems for opposing offenses.
4. New York Jets: Derek Stingley, CB, LSU
It doesn’t seem that long ago that the New York Jets boasted one of the best defenses in football and cornerback Darrelle Revis was a huge part of that success. Now as their new head coach, Robert Saleh, looks to rebuild the team, they land a new stud at cornerback with the selection of Derek Stingley from LSU.
Stingley is hands down the No. 1 cornerback in this class and can develop into a shutdown corner in the NFL. Playing in the AFC East with players such as Stefon Diggs and Jaylen Waddle, having such a player is going to be a necessity to contend.
