Niner Noise 2024 Mock Draft 2.0: Pick Nos. 25 - 32

25. Offensive Tackle. Tyler Guyton. player. Oklahoma . Tyler Guyton. . . 25. 49

Mock Draft 1.0: Cooper DeJean, Cornerback/Safety, Iowa

An upgrade for the secondary makes sense here, too, for the Packers, but they might be too intrigued by the potential of Tyler Guyton here to say no. With David Bakhtiari no longer on the team, Green Bay will need to obtain a talented blocker to protect the new franchise quarterback in Jordan Love.

48. . . EDGE. Florida State. Jared Verse. Jared Verse. 26. 26. player

Mock Draft 1.0: Jackson Powers-Johnson, Center/Guard, Oregon

The Buccaneers would be loving how the draft goes here, as they need to replace Shaq Barrett, and Jared Verse would be an absolute steal. He was at No. 16 in my first mock, before the Laiatu Latu draft stock went on the rise.

Kool-Aid McKinstry. 27. 27. Cornerback. . . Alabama. player. 32. Kool-Aid McKinstry

Mock Draft 1.0: Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

The Cardinals need a lot of upgrades, and cornerback is one of them. Kool-Aid McKinstry is a prospect with a bit of a fluid draft stock. He could go higher than this, and he's a danger to fall out of the first round, too.

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

Mock Draft 1.0: Xavier Worthy, Wide Receiver, Texas

There have been multiple reports that the Bills are looking to trade up for a receiver, which makes sense because they're very thin at the position after trading away Stefon Diggs after tiring of his diva behavior. Xavier Worthy is a dynamic deep threat with excellent route-running skills.

Center/Guard. player. 29. Oregon . . Jackson Powers-Johnson. 29. 50. . Jackson Powers-Johnson

Mock Draft 1.0: Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

The Detroit Lions were the Cinderella team for 2023, and now the pressure is on to back it up with the wright of expectation in 2024. They can help their cause with upgrading at guard, and maybe center if Frank Ragnow continues to get help. Jackson Powers-Johnson is the best pure interior blocker in this draft.

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

Mock Draft 1.0: Jordan Morgan, Offensive Tackle, Arizona

The Ravens need an understudy for Ronnie Stanley, as well as someone ready to fill in for when he inevitably gets injured. Jordan Morgan has a lot of fans at the end of the first round and the beginning of the second. He's more likely than not to sneak into the first round now.

31. . Amarius Mims. player. 42. 31. Georgia. . Offensive Tackle. Amarius Mims

Mock Draft 1.0: Amarius Mims, Offensive Tackle, Georgia

Amarius Mims is an exciting but polarizing draft prospect. He's been hurt a lot and has minimal collegiate experience, but he's physically a very impressive talent at 6-foot-8 and 340 pounds with some incredible athleticism to back it up. He's perfect for the 49ers.

124. . . Wide Receiver. 32. player. 32. Texas. Adonai Mitchell. Adonai Mitchell

Mock Draft 1.0: Adonai Mitchell, Wide Receiver, Texas

What's the easiest way to prepare for a possible threepeat in 2024? Giving Patrick Mahomes more viable receivers! This makes even more sense given their only good wide receiver in Rashee Rice got himself in some legal trouble.
