In his short amount of time in Boone, Chase Brice has noticed how fervent Appalachian State fans can be. But he’s gone fairly unrecognized, the new Mountaineers quarterback said, with the only tell coming from the program gear he wears around town.

The Titans finished with only 19 sacks this season — only the Bengals and Jaguars had fewer. Basham is a strong, athletic, productive pass rusher who can disrupt an offense. He had 11 sacks and 18 tackles for loss as a first-team All-ACC selection in 2019 and opened 2020 with a sack in each of his first five games. Top needs: OT, WR, Edge
The Jets go defense after addressing the offense with their earlier pick. Horn — his father Joe was a Pro Bowl wide receiver — is a very talented press corner with elite speed, good size (6-foot-1, 205 pounds) and can make plays in run support. Top needs: QB, Edge, DB
For as much draft capital as the Raiders have spent recently on their defense, you'd expect better results by now. There have been flashes, but nothing concrete yet. Paye is an upside pick who hadn't produced at an elite level before (he only had 9.5 sacks in his first three seasons in Ann Arbor), but there's athletic indicators he will continue to improve as a pass rusher. According to Pro Football Focus, Paye had a 26 percent pass-rush win rate — fourth-best of any Power 5 edge defender in the country — which is typically defined as how often a player beats his blocker within 2.5 seconds. He's already an impressive run defender against the spread offense, which is becoming increasingly important in the NFL. Top needs: DL, OG, DB
The Giants are in need of another pass rushing threat to go opposite Leonard Williams. Paye is already an impressive run defender against the spread offense, which is becoming increasingly important in the NFL, and there are athletic indicators he will continue to improve as a pass rusher. Top needs: OL, Edge, LB
Coach Mike Zimmer didn't hold back when he called his defense the "worst one I've ever had."

Top needs: DL, S, G
