12. Minnesota Vikings: Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

If at first you don’t succeed, keep throwing draft capital at the position and something will eventually stick.

The saying goes something like that, right?

The Minnesota Vikings have been investing high draft choices in cornerbacks for a long time, yet they still find the position lacks a solidified starting presence. Trent McDuffie can help them with that and come in as a week one starter. He has big-time speed, big-time explosiveness, and he is aggressive on every snap.

13. Cleveland Browns: Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

Keeping a local flavor for this pick with the Browns, who get arguably the WR1 of this class.

Garrett Wilson is an absolute monster at the catch point and there were so many impressive plays from him with the Buckeyes using his leaping ability and strong hands to pluck the ball out of the air where it seemed at times like there wasn’t even a play to be made.

He creates separation as a route runner, he creates separation at the catch point, and he has a knack for making big plays in the open field.
