21. Washington Redskins – Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida
There’s some rumors that Hargreaves may have failed a drug test at the combine, so he falls a bit here. I wouldn’t be shocked if William Jackson goes ahead of him even if he didn’t fail a test if a team values size at the position. Washington has needs all over the defense, and has shown they’re not afraid to take on questionable character guys.
22. Houston Texans – Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas
The Texans are bringing in Brock Osweiler to solidify their quarterback position and one way you do that is to give him a security blanket. Henry is a multi-faceted tight end who is a solid blocker both on the move and in-line and is a very good pass catcher as well. He’ll be the perfect compliment to the down-field threat brought by DeAndre Hopkins.
23. Minnesota Vikings – Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss
If Treadwell falls this far, I could see several teams trying to jump this Houston/Vikings/Bengals grouping to grab him. The Vikings luck out here and get the best receiver in the class. Teddy Bridgewater is a solid Quarterback, but he doesn’t exactly have a cannon to get the ball downfield to a guy like Mike Wallace. The Vikings couldn’t ask for a better fit for their team. Bridgewater’s accuracy with Treadwell’s route running and size is a match made in heaven.
24. Cincinnati Bengals – Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame
The Bengals have had some attrition in the wide receiving ranks this offseason and therefore they need to re-fill the cupboard. Fuller is a flyer on the outside who possesses some good athleticism and can stretch the defense over the top in a heartbeat. He’s a quality young man too who is good on and off the field which the Bengals could certainly use in the wake of last year’s playoff exit.
