12. Minnesota Vikings: Ahmad Gardner, CB, Cincinnati
It feels like the Minnesota Vikings take a cornerback in the first or second round just about every other year over the last decade.
Although they’ve certainly had their share of hits and misses, they are currently in need of another hit.
Ahmad Gardner didn’t allow a touchdown in his entire college career, which is certainly something he will always be able to hang his hat on. In addition to that, he was very consistent in his coverage dominance overall.
He would give the Vikings an instant CB1 on the outside.
13. Cleveland Browns: Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia
Projecting him to the NFL, teams are going to need to make sure they are committed to using Davis for more than 50 percent of the snaps.
Although he was extremely effective at Georgia on a limited snap count, he’s going to need to prove he has the conditioning and endurance to play 60-70 percent of a team’s snaps.
For the Cleveland Browns, a force on the interior defensive line like Jordan Davis will not only upgrade their run defense, but will also give them someone who can occupy blockers to make life easier on Myles Garrett and also take advantage of the double teams he receives.
