WR Jayden Reed
Team: Green Bay Packers (Round 2, 50th overall)
Impact: Reed has the opportunity to slide in and immediately become the No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver in the new-look Green Bay offense. Jordan Love needs weapons, and Jayden Reed could be the perfect compliment.
P Bryce Baringer
Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports
Team: New England Patriots (Round 6, 192nd overall)
Impact: Baringer was the best punter in college football this past season, and he has all the tools to continue that trend in the NFL.
CB Ameer Speed
Team: New England Patriots (Round 6, 214th overall)
Impact: Truth be told, there was a lot to be desired from Speed this past season, making him a somewhat shocking selection. If there is any team or coach who could use Speed’s 6-foot-3 frame and his ground work of tools, its Bill Bellichick and the New England Patriots.
