Round 1, 22nd overall pick

There isn’t as much urgency for a receiver this time around. In January, 80 percent of the mock drafts we used had Buffalo taking a wideout. Now that’s down to 60 percent. It seems as if the idea of going with an edge rusher is picking up steam. The man gaining momentum is Yetur Gross-Matos from Penn State. Here are the players selected most often:

Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado – 6

Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson – 6

Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Penn State – 4

There is a tie at the top between Shenault and Higgins. Both are big, strong, and highly skilled wide receivers either of which would be a boost to the offense. While Brown and Beasley are very good, neither of them possesses the physicality of either the projected incoming wideouts.

"The 6-foot-4 Higgins can make guys miss with his strength and will come down with anything thrown near him. He averaged a hair shy of 20 yards per catch this past season for the Tigers. – Todd McShay, ESPN"

The third Big Ten DE expected to come off the board, Gross-Matos was an impact player for the Nittany Lions. He’s been a big riser up the mock drafts over the past few weeks. That can be confirmed at the scouting combine which begins on February 23. At 6-5, 265-pounds, he has the size and length scouts love at the end of the line. He is also hard to handle at the point of attack in obvious passing situations. Last season the defensive end picked up eight sacks.

Other players that showed up on the mocks are all defensive edge players: K’Lavon Chaisson, Edge, LSU; AJ Epanesa, Edge, Iowa; Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU; Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama; Jalen Reagor, WR, Texas Christian; Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor; D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia; CJ Henderson, CB, Florida.
