25.) Pittsburgh Steelers- Karl Joseph S West Virginia
The Steelers have a lot of needs on defense in the secondary. While they could go with a corner, Karl Joseph could be that rangeful free safety the team hasn’t since Polamalu.

26.) Cleveland Browns- Paxton Lynch QB Memphis
I have two trades that I’m going with and they both involve the Browns. After moving down from eight, the team picks up some additional draft picks as ammunition to move back up into the first. While I wouldn’t personally move up for a QB, I can clearly see Hue going after a QB he wants before the Chiefs, Cardinals, or Broncos can get one of them before 32 comes around. With a lot of great defensive lineman still left, Seattle will gladly slide down a little to gain extra picks.

27.) Green Bay Packers- Jarran Reed DT Alabama
With B.J. Raji retiring the Packers need to find another big body to put in the middle of their defense to plug up holes for the LBs. He will be a perfect run stuffer for the Packers with this pick.

28.) Kansas City Chiefs- Mackenzie Alexander CB Clemson
The Chiefs can go a variety of options here. Mackenzie Alexander is the top corner still left that can pair with last year’s Rookie of the Year Marcus Peters to replace Sean Smith who left in free agency. While Alexander didn’t put up big numbers, teams rarely threw at him.
