Wide Receiver. Texas. 28. . 28. . Xavier Worthy. player. Xavier Worthy. 16

The Buffalo Bills are in desperate need for receiving help, and that was before they ended up trading Stefon Diggs after they tired of his diva antics. Xavier Worthy has done more than any other receiver to boost his draft stock, and would be a potent deep threat for quarterback Josh Allen.

Worthy is small at 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, but his record 4.21 40-yard time demonstrates why teams love him. He's not just a sprint athlete either, with 75 receptions for 1,014 yards and five touchdowns in 2023 for the Longhorns.

Worthy is an excellent route runner with the versatility to line up either in the slot or outside. A smart offense will be able to utilize him in mismatch situations where he can use his speed to maximum advantage.

Worthy's slight frame does cause some concern, however, as he will routinely get outbodied by almost every defensive back he comes up against.

That's not a huge problem in of itself, but it will limit how he plays in the NFL.

EDGE. 50. . . Chop Robinson. Chop Robinson. 29. 29. Penn State. player

Aidan Hutchinson is obviously an elite EDGE, but Marcus Davenport was a bust for the New Orelans Saints and can't be trusted to provide a consistent presence. Chop Robinson would be an excellent choice for the Detroit Lions here, as they look to find a way to go one step closer in 2024.

Robinson is an EDGE with good size at 6-foot-3 and 254 pounds, a relentless motor and an excellent first step, using his athleticism to get sacks. Robinson had four sacks and two forced fumbles in only seven games for Penn State this year.

Robinson isn't the complete package yet, and will need to improve his run defense including his recognition skills and block shedding. For 2024, he can be a situational pass-rusher on obvious passing downs.

The former Nittany Lion has the tools to be a strong EDGE in the NFL, and the pass-rushing capabilities to contribute right away.

He's a perfect pick for Detroit.

30. 26. player. . Offensive Tackle. Arizona. Jordan Morgan. 30. . Jordan Morgan

Ronnie Stanley has never played 16 games in a season in his career, and the offensive line needs upgrading anyway.

Jordan Morgan can serve as an understudy before taking over at left tackle.

An experienced tackle at Arizona, Morgan is a favorite here at Niner Noise for the 49ers' own pick at No. 31. He doesn't quite make it here, however, as the Ravens would heartbreakingly swoop in just before.

A good size at 6-foot-5 and 311 pounds, Morgan is a good blend of strength and athleticism that has the potential to be a strong left tackle in the NFL. He's more nimble than he looks and has the ability to move laterally to handle speed rushers.

Morgan does have some things to work on in the NFL. He can be a bit aggressive in the run game and allow savvy defenders to get by him, and he needs to fix some deficiencies in his pass defense such as using his hands to beat defenders to the punch.

With some development, something Baltimore is good at, Morgan can be a steal at No. 30.
