9 - Green Bay: Joe Alt, OT/Notre Dame

Jordan Love is improving, and it should give the Green Bay Packers enough faith to try and build around him after the top three quarterbacks have gone off the board. Like the Titans, they will attempt to build from the inside and out to give Love enough protection and time to make plays next season.

10 - Tampa Bay: JJ McCarthy, QB/Michigan

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers don’t have as clear of an answer as Green Bay, so they will snag a potential long-term solution in Michigan’s JJ McCarthy. McCarthy may need some talent around him, and the Bucs should have enough in the Bay Area for the Michigan product to enjoy some early success.

11 - New York Jets: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB/Alabama

An offensive lineman for Aaron Rodgers would be ideal, but with the top two off the board, the New York Jets opt to further improve their defense. Kool-Aid McKinstry will join a defensive backfield that already has an ample amount of talent, and it will further negate opposing offenses from throwing on the Jets.

12 - Los Angeles Chargers: Malik Nabers, WR/LSU

Malik Nabers is a proven playmaker, and he will give quarterback Justin Herbert another solid option in the passing game. With Nabers in the lineup, it’s possible for the Chargers to win games by forcing opponents to keep up with what should be a high-scoring attack.
