Continuing with our 2019 NFL Mock Draft, here are our picks 21-32:

21. Tennessee Titans (Draft History): Ahmmon Richards, WR, Miami (FL)

Injuries derailed a frustrating sophomore season (24/439/3) for Richards, who broke Michael Irvin's single-season freshman yardage record (49/934/3). With elite speed (4.31 in 40-yard dash), Richards gives Marcus Mariota another talented wideout opposite last year's first-round pick (Corey Davis).

22. Houston Texans (Draft History): Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

After playing safety last year, Gardner-Johnson will shift to the "star" role (nickel). The Texans signed Tyrann Mathieu after he was released by the Cardinals, but it was only a one-year deal.

23. Los Angeles Chargers (Draft History): Will Grier, QB, West Virginia

Tranferring to West Virginia, Grier threw for 3,490 yards and 34 touchdowns after sitting out the 2016 season. Philip Rivers will turn 37 later this season and it would make sense to draft a quarterback to groom behind the veteran even though the team recently signed Geno Smith to back up Rivers.

24. Green Bay Packers (Draft History): Josh Allen, LB, Kentucky

Wyoming's Josh Allen may be the first overall pick in 2018. But it could be back-to-back years with first-round Josh Allens. (The Kentucky Josh) Allen led the Wildcats in sacks (seven) and tackles for loss (9.5), but he started hot and finished slowly -- only half-sack following the first six games. A more consistent performance in 2018 could lead to a first-round selection in 2019.



25. Atlanta Falcons (Draft History): Dre'Mont Jones, DT, Ohio State

Compared to his 51-tackle freshman season, Jones had a relatively quiet 2017 campaign with 20 tackles including five for loss with one sack. Entering the 2017 season with first-round potential, Jones returned to school to improve his draft stock and could be a 2019 first-rounder.

26. Los Angeles Rams (Draft History): Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State

The Rams ranked fourth in the NFL in sacks (48.0), but Aaron Donald (11.0) had nearly a quarter of the team's total and Robert Quinn (8.5, second on team) is now in Miami and Connor Barwin (5.0, fourth) is no longer on the roster. After recording 9.5 sacks as a freshman, Burns posted better all-around numbers in 2017 with 48 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.

27. Pittsburgh Steelers (Draft History): Bryce Love, RB, Stanford

Perhaps the Steelers will sign Le'Veon Bell to a long-term deal, but they have had to use the franchise tag on him for a second consecutive offseason. It's possible that they add a running back relatively early in 2018 as insurance, but if they don't draft one high and don't agree to an extension with Bell, Love would be a nice value if still on the board this late.

28. Jacksonville Jaguars (Draft History): Devin White, LB, LSU

One of three first-team All-SEC linebackers along with Georgia's Roquan Smith and South Carolina's Skai Moore, Smith finished second in the SEC in tackles (133) and fourth in tackles for loss (13.5) as a sophomore.

29. New Orleans Saints (Draft History): Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern

Re-signing a two-year deal last month, Drew Brees will be 40 years old in January and the Saints will need to begin grooming his long-term replacement. Tearing his ACL at the end of the season, Thorson (6-4, 220) will have a chance to sit and learn behind one of the best.

30. Minnesota Vikings (Draft History): Mark Gilbert, CB, Duke

First-team All-ACC last season, Gilbert (6-1, 175) had six interceptions and 21 passes defended, a single-season school record. Gilbert's uncle is Sean Gilbert, third overall pick in 1992, and Darrelle Revis is his cousin.

31. New England Patriots (Draft History): Ryan Finley, QB, North Carolina State

Despite any reports that Tom Brady has yet to commit to playing in 2018, it's a virtual lock that he'll be under center in Week 1. Given that he'll turn 41 in August, however, it's unclear how much longer Brady will play. With Jimmy Garoppolo now in the Bay area, it's also unclear who will replace Brady when that time comes. If they don't address the need in 2018, something that many expect Bill Belichick to do, drafting a quarterback like Finley to develop long term would make sense.

32. Philadelphia Eagles (Draft History): Caleb Wilson, TE, UCLA

Wilson got off to a great start in 2017 with 38 catches for 490 yards and a touchdown in UCLA's first five games, but he missed the rest of the season with a foot injury. With Trey Burton now in Chicago, Wilson would give the Eagles another talented pass-catching tight end to go along with Zach Ertz.
