53. Philadelphia Eagles - Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

The Eagles used their first two picks on defense and figure to be better on that side of the ball with Vic Fangio as the DC, so they turn their focus to offense and land Ja’Lynn Polk from Washington, perhaps replacing DeVonta Smith if the Eagles do not want to pay two wide receivers big money.

54. Jacksonville Jaguars (via CLE) - Ennis Rakestraw Jr, CB, Missouri

Defense is the focus for the Jacksonville Jaguars through their first two selections.  I do think this team could prioritize the offensive line as well, but their defense really struggled at times in 2023, so I added Ennis Rakestraw to the mix for them.

55. Miami Dolphins - Kalen King, CB, Penn State

56. Dallas Cowboys - Malachi Corley, WR, Western Kentucky

57. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan

58. Green Bay Packers - Chris Braswell, EDGE, Alabama

59. Houston Texans - Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington

60. Buffalo Bills - Michael Hall Jr, DT, Ohio State

61. Detroit Lions - Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson

62. Baltimore Ravens - Jaylan Ford, LB, Texas

63. Kansas City Chiefs - Beau Brade, S, Maryland

64. San Francisco 49ers - McKinnley Jackson, DT, Texas A&M

From pick 57-64, every team selected defensive players, including multiple pass rushers and defensive tackles. Defense was on an uptick in 2023, and I think teams will continue to build up their defenses and try to limit the big plays, which has slowly become a trend in the NFL. Still, winning in the trenches has been a huge factor for any team for decades now, and sometimes there is no need to reinvent the wheel.
