2020 NFL Draft: Using Team Needs Analysis and Big Board Rankings When Projecting The NFL Draft

Team Needs Analysis As NFL teams fill needs via free agency and the trade market it is important to efficiently update the Team Needs Analysis. Team needs vary based on importance and every team has a primary set of needs and a list of less pressing but also important secondary needs that we can use to help us identify how a team might approach the NFL Draft. Primary vs Secondary Team Needs In this particular exercise, we are going to re-examine the team needs analysis and begin to narrow the team needs down to 3 primary needs and 3 secondary needs if applicable. Some teams might only have two primary needs and 4 secondary needs. As we examine each team and narrow down their primary needs, we can take a look at our NFL composite player rankings to determine the best available option based on team needs available in the draft order. Using our NFL Draft Big Board Player Rankings During this exercise, we are using our top 50 Big Board to make picks. We will take the best available player in the highest priority position of need. If a player is not available to fill a primary need, we can then move into the top secondary need and pick the best available option. No Trades We are not using a trade thought process, but in some cases, we pick the best fit, assuming that a trade might be needed to get a particular player that would fit a team need. Subjective Player Value Instant Impact Value Instant impact value includes the players in the draft who can make an impact immediately, whether its a position of need or not. A great example is Saquan Barkley, who when drafted, made an immediate impact. Barkley is a high-level example and a generational talent and not every instant impact player is a generational type. A non-generational example might be the impact that Devin Bush had at MLB for the Steelers a season ago. Instant Impact can also be attributed to the team a player joins. For example; If CeeDee Lamb joins the Chiefs we can assume right away he would be an instant impact player. This process is mostly a subjective way of categorizing each player. Long Term Value We are weighing the long term value when making our picks. For example, in a WR heavy draft, it might be wiser to pick an IOL or T in round one to fill a need for the long term, especially for teams who have a franchise QB already in place. Long Term Value players are those who we believe can produce at a consistent level for 8-10 years in the NFL. Potential Upside Coaches and GM's love to draft players with high upside that they believe can develop. These players are higher risk values. These players might have been high level in college but may lack the consistency needed to become a long term value in the NFL. First Round Projections 1st. Cincinnati QB Joe Burrow, LSU, 6-4 216lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 4th Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: QB, IOL, EDGE The most obvious pick in this draft is Joe Burrow. The Bengals are moving on from Andy Dalton, but they have a lot of needs. Whoever is at QB needs protection so the Bengals will have to improve their offensive line. The Defensive line also needs depth. Offseason Moves: Bengals sign G Xavier Su'a-Filo Bengals sign CB Trae Waynes Bengals sign DT D.J. Reader 2nd. Washington Edge/DE Chase Young, Ohio State, 6-5 265lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 1st Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: T, WR, EDGE The player most draft pundits think is the best in this draft cycle is Chase Young and it is hard to argue. But the Redskins have floated the possibility of moving on from Haskins and Pursuing Tua Tagovailoa. They have needs on the OL, and at WR. Offseason Moves: Redskins sign TE Logan Thomas Redskins sign RB J.D. McKissic Redskins sign S Sean Davis Redskins sign LB Thomas Davis Redskins sign LB Kevin Pierre-Louis Redskins sign CB Kendall Fuller Redskins sign G Wes Schweitzer 3rd. Detroit CB Jeff Okudah, Ohio State, 6-1 200lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 5th Instant Impact Value 3/17/20 *(Original projection before signing LB Jamie Collins) Detroit LB/S ISAIAH SIMMONS, CLEMSON Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: EDGE, LB, CB The Lions need to improve all three levels of their defense. The defensive back opposite of Slay needs to be upgraded. The LB position has underperformed the last two years. They are in great spot and rumors have been spun that they have interest in Tua, others believe they go with the best CB in this draft cycle (Jeff Okudah), but after Isaiah Simmons combine performance it might be too difficult to pass on his versatile ability. Offseason Moves: Eagles acquire CB Darius Slay from Lions Lions sign CB Desmond Trufant Lions acquire S Duron Harmon from Patriots Lions sign DT Danny Shelton Lions cut DE/OLB Devon Kennard Lions sign DT Nick Williams Lions sign OLB Jamie Collins Lions sign OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai 4th. NY Giants Tristin Wirfs, Iowa, 6-5 322lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 13th Long Term Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: T, EDGE, LB The Giants need to draft a tackle, or two. They also need to fix their secondary on a defense that ranked 30th in 20+ yard plays allowed and in the bottom third of our 2019 defensive HIP Rate. Offseason Moves Giants sign QB Colt McCoy Giants sign S Nate Ebner Giants sign OT Cameron Fleming Giants sign DE/OLB Kyler Fackrell Giants sign TE Levine Toilolo Giants sign LB Blake Martinez Giants sign CB James Bradberry 5th. Miami QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama, 6-1 219lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 2nd Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: QB, T, CB Miami should draft Tua if available in this spot, or will they? Tua is not guaranteed to play in year one so the Dolphins might need to ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick for a year to assure Tua is 100%. Regardless of who is at QB, the Dolphins need help up front. Offseason Moves: Dolphins sign LB Elandon Roberts Dolphins sign C/G Ted Karras Dolphins sign RB Jordan Howard Dolphins sign LB Kamu Grugier-Hill Dolphins sign DE Emmanuel Ogbah Dolphins sign OLB Kyle Van Noy Dolphins sign CB Byron Jones Dolphins sign S Clayton Fejedelem Dolphins sign G Ereck Flowers Dolphins sign DE Shaq Lawson 6th. LA Chargers QB Justin Herbert, Oregon, 6-6 238lbs Potential Upside Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 23rd Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: QB, T, IOL Philip Rivers is on the way out, so te obvious pick at this spot is QB assuming Herbert or Tua is available you can expect the Chargers to go this route. They will need to also draft IOL, and T to protect their investment. Offseason Moves: Chargers sign CB Chris Harris Chargers sign DT Linval Joseph Chargers sign OT Bryan Bulaga Chargers acquire G Trai Turner from Panthers for OT Russell Okung 7th. Carolina DL Derrick Brown, Auburn, 6-4, 322lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 6th Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: CB, DL The Panthers need a lot of help. The offensive line will be a priority in this draft. Whoever they have at QB needs to be protected. The defense needs depth and talent upfront so it wouldn't be a surprise if they go after a DT in round one. Offseason Moves: Panthers sign G John Miller Panthers sign WR Seth Roberts Cowboys sign DT Gerald McCoy Panthers sign QB Teddy Bridgewater Chargers acquire G Trai Turner from Panthers for OT Russell Okung Panthers sign S Juston Burris Panthers sign DE Stephen Weatherly 8th. Arizona, T Jedrick WIlls, Alabama, 6-5 320lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 9th Long Term Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: CB, IOL, DL The Cardinals need to protect their long term investment at QB. They should draft an Offensive lineman in this spot, but it might prove too challenging to pass on one of the top WR's in this draft. The Cardinals need help at every position. 3/16/20 Update: Arizona is working on finalizing a trade deal for Houston Texan WR Deandre Hopkins per Adam Schefter. We expect that the Cardinals will pick up one of the more coveted Tackles in this draft. Offseason Moves: Cardinals sign LB De'Vondre Campbell Cardinals sign DE/OLB Devon Kennard Cardinals sign NT Jordan Phillips Cardinals acquire WR DeAndre Hopkins from Texans for RB David Johnson 9th. Jacksonville T Andrew Thomas, Georgia, 6-5 320lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 10th Long Term Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: S, T, CB Jacksonville needs help up front. The question mark is if they believe that Cam Robinson will develop into the player they thought he could become. They can use a lot of help on defense at all three levels. Offseason Moves: Jaguars sign DT Rodney Gunter Bears acquire QB Nick Foles from Jaguars Jaguars sign CB Darqueze Dennard Jaguars sign LB Joe Schobert 10th. Cleveland LB/S Isaiah Simmons, Clemson, 6-3 230lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 7th Instant Impact Value 3/17/20 *(Original projection before signing LB Jamie Collins and Cleveland Signing T Jack Conklin) OT MEKHI BECTON, LOUISVILLE Long Term Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: IOL, Edge, LB Cleveland needs to fix the offensive line from the inside out. They also have needs on defense. The Browns need to upgrade at LB and depth is needed on the defensive line. Offseason Moves: Browns sign S Andrew Sendejo Browns sign CB Kevin Johnson Browns sign DT Andrew Billings Browns sign S Karl Joseph Browns sign LB B.J. Goodson Browns acquire FB Andy Janovich from Broncos Browns sign QB Case Keenum Browns sign OT Jack Conklin 11th. NY JETS T Josh Jones, Houston, 6-7 310lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 16th Long Term Value Update 3/19/20 (Signed George Fant) OT MEKHI BECTON, LOUISVILLE Long Term Value 3/17/20 *(Jeudy, was the Jet's second option after not being in a position to land one of the top 3 tackles until the Jamie Collins to Detroit signing allowing the Lions to go get Okudah filling two of their needs. Cleveland signed Jack Conklin and now Mekhi Becton lands in the Jets lap. NY Jets WR JERRY JEUDY, ALABAMA Instant Impact Value 3/16/20*(Original Pick before Hou-AZ Hopkins Trade) T JEDRICK WILLS, ALABAMA Long Term Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: IOL, WR Protect your top asset by adding long term value. The Jets need to keep Darnold upright if they want to contend in the AFC East. The next priority is at WR and the interior of their offensive line. Offseason Moves: Jets sign C Connor McGovern Jets sign OT George Fant 12th. Las Vegas WR Jerry Jeudy, Alabama, 6-1 192 Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 4th Instant Impact Value (Update 3/19/20) Raiders Have to go Back to CeeDee because of changes ahead of them in the draft. Jets signed a tackle in free agency and are projected to take a WR. Las Vegas WR JERRY JEUDY, ALABAMA Instant Impact Value 3/17/20 The Raiders appeared poised to snag Lamb until the reverberations of free agency and trades changed how we are projecting the picks ahead of the Raiders. (Original Pick before until the Cleveland signed Jack Conklin leading them to not draft a tackle and Becton landing in the Jets lap). WR CEEDEE LAMB, OKLAHOMA Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: WR, CB, The Raiders are desperate for an elite WR after leaning on a TE (Darren Waller) a season ago. The Raiders are also in urgent need of an upgrade at LB. The consensus has been that the Raiders will take any of the elite WR's on the board (Jeudy, Lamb, Reagor. If any of the three are on the board, expect them to snag one. Don't be surprised if the Raiders try to trade up to secure Lamb or Jeudy. Offseason Moves: Raiders sign DE Carl Nassib Raiders sign S Jeff Heath Raiders sign DT Maliek Collins Raiders sign TE Jason Witten Raiders sign LB Nick Kwiatkoski Raiders sign QB Marcus Mariota Raiders sign LB Cory Littleton 13th. San Francisco Via IND WR CeeDee Lamb, Oklahoma, 6-2 189lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 8th Instant Impact Value Update 3/19/20 (Changes ahead of them in the draft lead the 49ers to change their pick from Lamb). WR CEEDEE LAMB, OKLAHOMA Instant Impact Value 3/17/20 (Colts Trade 13th pick to SF for Deforest Buckner) Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: CB, WR, DL The 49ers have to upgrade at CB in 2020. Richard Sherman is aging but still playing at a high level, but they need more stability opposite Sherman. The 49ers could use an upgrade on the interior of their offensive line (G), but at the end of the day, we believe they will draft a young corner. Offseason Moves: 49ers sign G Tom Compton 49ers cut G Mike Person Colts acquire DE/DT DeForest Buckner from 49ers 14th. Tampa Bay RB Jonathon Taylor, Wisconsin, 5-11, 216lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 26th Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: S, CB, RB The Bucs need help all over and will likely target the best available player at either of the three primary positions of need. In this case, the Bucs address a need at RB that has plagued them the last two seasons. Offseason Moves: Buccaneers sign OT/G Joe Haeg Buccaneers sign QB Tom Brady 15th. Denver CJ Henderson, Florida, 6-1, 186lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 17th Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: WR, IOL, CB The Broncos need to add another WR to the mix opposite of Courtland Sutton. The other issue is at Guard where they need a lot of help in order to keep Drew Lock upright. The Broncos could also use a corner opposite Chris Harris. Offseason Moves: Broncos sign RB Melvin Gordon Broncos cut QB Joe Flacco Broncos acquire DT Jurrell Casey from Titans 16th. Atlanta EDGE K’Lavon Chaisson, 6-4 250lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 35th Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: Edge, CB, IOL It feels like an eternity since the Falcons Super Bowl collapse vs the Patriots. In NFL years it has been an eternity and the clock is running out on Matt Ryan. The Falcons aren't in the market for a new QB yet but will be in the coming years. For now, they need to upgrade their secondary and find an EDGE rusher. Offseason Moves: Falcons sign RB Todd Gurley Falcons sign DE Dante Fowler Falcons acquire TE Hayden Hurst from Ravens 17th. Dallas CB Kristian Fulton, LSU, 6-0 200lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 17th Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: EDGE, CB, The Cowboys need to upgrade or replace members in their secondary. The Cowboys are only a few pieces and few contracts away from becoming Super Bowl contenders. Once they sure up their secondary, they will need to find a DT. Offseason Moves: Cowboys sign S Ha Ha Clinton_Dix Cowboys sign DT Gerald McCoy 18th. Miami f/PIT Mekhi Becton, Louisville, 6-7 369lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 33rd Potential Upside 3/17/20 *(Original projection prior to Dolphins acquiring EDGE/LB Kyle Van Noy). EDGE K'LAVON CHAISSON, LSU Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: QB, T, WR Miami will draft Tua if available in this spot, or will they? Tua is not guaranteed to play in year one so the Dolphins might need to ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick for a year to assure Tua is 100%. Regardless of who is at QB, the Dolphins need help up front. Offseason Moves: Dolphins sign LB Elandon Roberts Dolphins sign C/G Ted Karras Dolphins sign RB Jordan Howard Dolphins sign LB Kamu Grugier-Hill Dolphins sign DE Emmanuel Ogbah Dolphins sign OLB Kyle Van Noy Dolphins sign CB Byron Jones Dolphins sign S Clayton Fejedelem Dolphins sign G Ereck Flowers Dolphins sign DE Shaq Lawson 19th. Las Vegas f/CHI CB Trevon Diggs, Alabama, 6-2, 195lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 19th Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: WR, CB, The Raiders are desperate for an elite WR after leaning on a TE (Darren Waller) a season ago. The Raiders are also in urgent need of an upgrade at LB. The consensus has been that the Raiders will take any of the elite WR's on the board (Jeudy, Lamb, Reagor. If any of the three are on the board, expect them to snag one. Don't be surprised if the Raiders try to trade up to secure Lamb or Jeudy. Offseason Moves: Raiders sign DE Carl Nassib Raiders sign S Jeff Heath Raiders sign DT Maliek Collins Raiders sign TE Jason Witten Raiders sign LB Nick Kwiatkoski Raiders sign QB Marcus Mariota Raiders sign LB Cory Littleton 20th. Jacksonville f/LAR S Xavier McKinney, Alabama, 6-1 197lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 23rd Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: T, CB, S Jacksonville needs help upfront. The question mark is if they believe that Cam Robinson will develop into the player they thought he could become. They can use a lot of help on defense at all three levels. Offseason Moves: Jaguars sign DT Rodney Gunter Bears acquire QB Nick Foles from Jaguars Jaguars sign CB Darqueze Dennard Jaguars sign LB Joe Schobert 21st. Philadelphia WR Henry Ruggs, Alabama, 6-0 190lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 20th Instant Impact Value Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: WR, LB The Eagles need receivers. That is all. I don't foresee any other route in the draft for the Eagles in round one. But they need corners. They have work to do in the draft and free agency. We believe they will go with a WR in this spot. The draft is about value, so if the right DB falls into their lap at this spot, they might go the DB route. Remember, this NFL draft has a lot of WR depth, and the Eagles might be able to wait until round two. Offseason Moves: Eagles acquire CB Darius Slay from Lions Eagles sign NT Javon Hargrave 22nd. Minnesota via BUF WR Denzel Mims, Baylor, 6-3 215lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 28th Instant Impact Value *(Updated post-Diggs Trade) T EZRA CLEVELAND, BOISE STATE Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: IOL, CB, WR Minnesota needs to upgrade its secondary and offensive line. Depending on who is available in this spot, they could go either way. We are going to go with the offensive line in this spot. Minnesota could not block the 49ers in the playoffs and need to upgrade both interior offensive line spots. Offseason Moves: Vikings sign NT Michael Pierce Bills acquire WR Stefon Diggs from Vikings 23rd. New England AJ Epenesa, Iowa, 6-4 277lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 12th Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: Edge, WR, TE The Patriots need a WR, and this is the perfect draft to get the right one. Regardless of what they decide to do at QB, the Patriots need to fill their void at outside WR opposite of N'keal Harry, and TE. The Patriots might be prepared to move up in the draft to get a QB to replace Brady if he decides to move on. The Patriots have a lot of variables that make this pick challenging to project. They have a need at safety, and this might be too early to go safety but it might be too early unless Grant Delpit falls into their lap. Offseason Moves: Patriots sign FB Dan Vitale Patriots sign S Adrian Phillips Patriots sign DT Beau Allen Lions acquire S Duron Harmon from Patriots Patriots sign WR Damiere Byrd 24th. New Orleans CB Jaylon Johnson, UTAH, 6-0, 195 Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 29th Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: CB, LB, IOL The Saints need to improve their secondary and dependent on who is available at this point in round number one; we assume this will be the area they want to upgrade. The Saints struggled against slot WR's in 2019 and can use a corner who can play the nickel. They should also consider an upgrade at Linebacker. Offseason Moves: Saints sign S Malcolm Jenkins 25th. Minnesota DT Javon Kinlaw, South Carolina, 6-6 310lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 11th Instant Impact Player Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: IOL, CB, WR Minnesota needs to upgrade its secondary and offensive line. Depending on who is available in this spot, they could go either way. We are going to go with the offensive line in this spot. Minnesota could not block the 49ers in the playoffs and need to upgrade both interior offensive line spots. Offseason Moves: Vikings sign NT Michael Pierce Bills acquire WR Stefon Diggs from Vikings 26th. Miami f/HOU WR Jalen Reagor, TCU, 5-11 185 Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 32nd Potential Upside *(Second projection prior to team needs review) T AUSTIN JACKSON USC Potential Upside *(Original projection CESAR RUIZ MICHIGAN Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: QB, T, WR Miami improved quite a bit late in the year in a lot of areas. They also have three first-round picks. The Dolphins have a lot of leverage in this draft, and if they are wise, they should draft Tua at pick five and go with two additional offensive linemen (Guard and Tackle). The thought process is that Tua will sit year one giving the Dolphins a season to develop their newly drafted offensive line. So we think they go with OL, but if Swift is available this late the Dolphins will add him to the mix with Tua, assuming Tua is available at number 5. Offseason Moves: Dolphins sign LB Elandon Roberts Dolphins sign C/G Ted Karras Dolphins sign RB Jordan Howard Dolphins sign LB Kamu Grugier-Hill Dolphins sign DE Emmanuel Ogbah Dolphins sign OLB Kyle Van Noy Dolphins sign CB Byron Jones Dolphins sign S Clayton Fejedelem Dolphins sign G Ereck Flowers Dolphins sign DE Shaq Lawson 27th. Seattle DT Justin Madubuike, TA&M, 6-3, 304 Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 50th Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: EDGE, CB The Seahawks need to upgrade their offensive line to protect their most significant asset in Russell Wilson. We expect the Seahawks to snag the best available guard or tackle. The Seahawks could pick as many as three offensive linemen in the 2020 draft. Offseason Moves: Seahawks sign OT Cedric Ogbuehi Seahawks sign OT Brandon Shell Seahawks sign DE/OLB Bruce Irvin Seahawks sign C B.J. Finney Seahawks sign TE Greg Olsen 28th. Baltimore WR Chase Claypool, Notre Dame, 6-4 227lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 15th Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: WR, EDGE, LB The Ravens need a physical outside WR to line up opposite of Hollywood Brown. This is a no brainer and should be one of the more obvious choices in this draft. The Ravens have additional needs on the interior of their offensive line after the Yanda retirement. They will be looking to add a pass rusher to a defense that ranked 10th overall in Defensive HIP Rate (14%) but only accumulated 37 sacks while ranking atop the NFL in blitz rate. Offseason Moves: Steelers acquire DE/DT Chris Wormley from Ravens Falcons acquire TE Hayden Hurst from Ravens 29th. Tennessee Yetur Gross-Matos, Penn State, 6-4 265lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 30th Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: EDGE, DL, IOL The Titans had a hard time getting pressure on Mahomes in the AFC Championship game. During the regular season, the Titans ranked 14th in sacks and 15th in overall HIP Rate (High Impact Play Rate) on defense. For the Titans to get back to the AFC title in 2020, they will need to improve their pass rush. The Titans will most likely draft an edge rusher in round one. Offseason Moves: Broncos acquire DT Jurrell Casey from Titans Titans sign DE/OLB Vic Beasley 30th. Green Bay Ross Blacklock, TCU, 6-4 305lbs Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 31st Potential Upside Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: WR, T, TE The 2020 NFL Draft offers the Packers the chance to grab a high-level WR in the first round, but the depth at WR does offer the Packers a shot to address a need in their front seven. Green Bay couldn't stop Raheem Mostert in the NFC Title game, and during the regular season, the Packers ranked in the middle of the league (16th) in missed tackle rate (10.42%). Depending on the free agency market, the Packers might not be able to pass on drafting a high-level defender and waiting until the 2nd or 3rd to draft a WR. Based on need, we think they go defense, but we are going with WR in this spot to fill a need opposite of Davante Adams. Offseason Moves: Packers sign OT Ricky Wagner Packers sign LB Christian Kirksey 31st. San Francisco Neville Gallimore, Oklahoma, 6-2 304LBS Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 38th Instant Impact Player Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: CB, WR, DL The 49ers have to upgrade at CB in 2020. Richard Sherman is aging but still playing at a high level, but they need more stability opposite Sherman. The 49ers could use an upgrade on the interior of their offensive line (G), but at the end of the day, we believe they will draft a young corner. Offseason Moves: 49ers sign G Tom Compton 49ers cut G Mike Person Colts acquire DE/DT DeForest Buckner from 49ers 32nd. Kansas City LB Kenneth Murray, Oklahoma, 6-2, 238, Football Scout 365 Player Rk: 26th Instant Impact Player Team Needs Assessment Primary Needs: LB, DT, CB The Super Bowl Champions are far from exempt as it pertains to team needs. The Chiefs have holes in their defense at all three levels, and because the NFL is a pass-first league, we believe the Chiefs will try to upgrade at corner. Depending on who is available at this point in the draft, the Chiefs could go with a DT to plug in right next to Chris Jones. Offseason Moves:
