Joe Flacco’s play suffered last season after the Ravens traded Anquan Boldin and Baltimore could use a physical receiver in the AFC North. Evans has strong hands and has one of the best size and speed combinations in the draft at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds. The former Aggie would be a great fit across from burner Torrey Smith, and would add a new dimension to Baltimore’s offense.
17. Dallas Cowboys - UCLA OLB Anthony Barr
The Cowboys have the worst salary cap situation in the NFL and may be forced to make some tough decisions, including the possibility of releasing DeMarcus Ware. Ware is still productive and would be a tough cut, but he’d save Dallas some serious cash. Barr would fit into Ware’s vacated spot perfectly, with the ability to rush the passer and drop into coverage if needed. He’d be a steal at this spot.
18. New York Jets - Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro
The Jets are in a similar situation to the Bills: developing a young quarterback who needs weapons. Geno Smith had an up-and-down year at least partly because of his lack of weapons in the passing game. Amaro is another player in the mold of "new age" tight ends and could step in as a matchup nightmare and safety blanket for Smith immediately.
19. Miami Dolphins - Notre Dame OT Zack Martin
Miami struggled massively with pass protection last season, allowing Ryan Tannehill to be sacked a ridiculous 58 times. Martin was a standout for the Fighting Irish last season and was arguably the best player at the Senior Bowl. He’s also versatile, with the ability to play either tackle or guard, increasing his value for the Dolphins.
20. Arizona Cardinals - Alabama OT Cyrus Kouandjio
The Cardinals were just shy of a playoff berth in the NFC West, and beefing up the team’s offensive line may be the final piece to the postseason puzzle. Kouandjio anchored the Alabama offensive line in 2013 and would be an upgrade at either tackle spot for Arizona.
21. Green Bay Packers - Notre Dame DT Louis Nix III
