1. Sam Howell, QB, Washington Commanders


"Sam Howell is my favorite guy to take late, I've talked about him all offseason long, but we've also seen him really produce in the preseason as well" - Magdziuk.

2. Tank Dell, WR, Houston Texans


"There are rookie wide receivers that you can find late in your drafts that can be huge for your team...Tank Dell I've been loving on him all offseason, but I think this preseason has made me feel very confident in him as well" - Magdziuk.

3. Jake Ferguson, TE, Dallas Cowboys


"I think [the Cowboys] are going to have to pass more than they want to. Jake Ferguson is going to have scoring opportunities, the Cowboys have been the top scoring offense for the last couple years, so I think this is truly a guy you can take with your last pick" - Magdziuk.

4. Ty Chandler, RB, Minnesota Vikings


"I don't know what we're going to get from [Alexander] Mattison if they run him more, because he's had injury issues. Ty Chandler I like his running style, I like some of the things he does and I think opportunity could knock" - Iyer.

5. Romeo Doubs, WR, Green Bay Packers


"Romeo Doubs is a guy I'm going to take a shot on just because he's playing in an offense with a bunch of unknowns and he could easily be the wide receiver one. When you have Christian Watson going 100 picks before him, with this uncertainty, I'm definitely going to take a shot on Doubs over Watson" - Magdzuik.
