1. Carolina Panthers — Bryce Young, QB, Alabama
Mike Golic Jr. on his pick: I don’t really feel like I should have to explain this. I’ve enjoyed watching the Draft cycle get us to a point where we embrace the best actual quarterback we saw going No. 1 overall in the Draft. I know he’s small ... but he’s managed to overcome that so far. I’m counting on him doing it behind an offensive line that brings back all five of their starters.
I’m here to draft smart, I’m not trying to make waves.

11. Tennessee Titans — Will Levis, QB, Kentucky
Nick Friar on his pick: Levis is a big improvement from what (Tennessee) has had at QB during Coach Vrabel’s time. He has experience in a pro-style offense, so he’s ahead of the game in that regard. He’s athletic, he’s got an effortless release.
That said, we do have some concerns with his consistency but that’s nothing that Coach Vrabel can’t iron out with a little bit of time.
22. Baltimore Ravens — Jordan Addison, WR, USC
Steve Buchanan on his pick: The Ravens are trying to do everything they can to kiss and make up with Lamar Jackson and want to entice him to stay in Baltimore. So I think they’re going to go out and get another wide receiver here, kind of go with that pass-heavy approach that they most likely might be getting with their new coordinator, Todd Monken. Addison is an excellent route runner who creates plenty of separation and should give Jackson plenty of targets to consider between Odell Beckham Jr., Rashod Bateman, Mark Andrews and then Addison most likely playing out of the slot.
26. Dallas Cowboys — Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame
Mike Golic Sr. on his pick: He’s the top tight end on my board. Dalton Schultz leaves there, so there’s Mayer to take over. Michael Mayer, again, it’s one of those where sometimes why I talk about hating the combine. ... Watch tape. All he does when you put the tape on is GET THE JOB DONE.
He’s not going to stretch the defense like a Dalton Kincaid will but he’s going to make the catch, he’s going to be incredible in the red zone and, oh by the way, he can inline block as well and stalk down field.
