17 - Jacksonville Jaguars: Keon Coleman, WR/Florida State

A quarterback of Trevor Lawrence’s caliber needs playmakers and a lot of them to maximize not just his, but also their potential. Keon Coleman has a lot of that potential, and in a place like Jacksonville with a quarterback like Lawrence, he may realize that. 

18 - Cincinnati Bengals: Taliese Fuaga, OT/Oregon State

Rolling with a receiver would be ideal for the Cincinnati Bengals, but there’s a bit of a gap following Keon Coleman. That said they will instead look to keep quarterback Joe Burrow upright more than they have during his first four seasons in the league. 

19 - Los Angeles Rams: Chop Robinson, EDGE/Penn State

The Los Angeles Rams may be yet another team to seek a talent based on potential instead of rolling with the safer pick. Chop Robinson’s statistics will never impress you, but the Rams don’t need anyone to put up awesome stats - they just need a player who can be disruptive. 

20 - Pittsburgh Steelers: Kamari Lassiter, CB/Georgia

The Pittsburgh Steelers need one more cornerback to solidify what will once again be a strong defense. Kamari Lassiter could end up going in Round 2, but he’s one of those players you shouldn’t be surprised about if he’s taken in the first round for a strong defensive team like Pittsburgh.
