The Philadelphia Eagles have selected OL Andre Dillard with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Baltimore Ravens. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Washington State product slips to the 22nd pick here. He was coveted by the Texans at 23, which is what prompted the Eagles to trade up and get their guy. Dillard earned PFF College's highest pass blocking grade as a senior last season.


With the 21st pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Maryland safety Darnell Savage. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: The Packers traded the 30th overall pick in the first round (a pick they originally received from the New Orleans Saints), the 114th overall pick, and the 118th overall pick in return for the 21st overall pick. With the pick, they selected Savage, a safety who can help in both coverage and the run game and who has the ability to drop down into the slot if needed. He is a bit undersized for the position, but he makes up for it with his football IQ and his athleticism.


The Denver Broncos have selected tight end Noah Fant with the No. 20 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: This is a big time get for the Denver Broncos. They likely could not justify reaching for Fant at 10th overall, but by trading down they were able to secure him as a value. Fant is a receiver in a tight ends body who should excel in an offense with a massive hole at the position. Joe Flacco is known to target his tight ends mercilessly, and should make Fant an instant fantasy star.


The Tennessee Titans have selected former Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons with the No. 19 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Titans decided to take a chance on Simmons based on his incredible talent, despite some red flags. He was videotaped assaulting a woman in 2016, and he tore his ACL in February. Simmons is unlikely to play in 2019, but Tennessee clearly has faith in his longterm value.


The Minnesota Vikings have selected center Garrett Bradbury with the No. 18 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Minnesota desperately needed help on the offensive line. Kirk Cousins was pressured 39% of the time last season, which was the fifth highest rate in the league. Bradbury will surely help Minnesota's run and pass blocking this season. This is a Super Bowl contending roster outside of offensive line right now so it's good to see the Vikings addressing that need.


With the 17th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Lawrence is a 342-pound defensive tackle who was frequently double-teamed while at Clemson. While he is not known for his quickness, he is a load to move in the run game and has the strength to collapse the pocket. With the Giants needing a number of pieces as they attempt to rebuild their defense and continue to their switch to a 3-4 front, Lawrence is an ideal DT who can play over the center.


The Carolina Panthers have selected defensive end Brian Burns with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The Carolina Panthers have addressed their need on the edge. Brian Burns is an explosive speed rusher who quieted size concerns by weighing in 20 lbs., heavier than expected at the NFL Combine. Burns has great closing speed as evidenced by his 67 pressures in 2018, a mark that placed him third among defensive ends.


The Washington Redskins have selected former Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins with the 15th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Shockingly, the Redskins did not have to trade up to snag their future franchise QB, and the team has got to be thrilled to get Haskins at such a bargain. In his final year at Ohio State, Haskins threw for 4,831 yards and an incredible 50/8 TD/INT split while completing 70.0 percent of his passes. It is highly unlikely Alex Smith plays this season, and Haskins could push Case Keenum for the starting job.


The Atlanta Falcons have selected OL Chris Lindstrom with the No. 14 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: As a senior for Boston College Lindstrom allowed zero sacks and just three quarterback hurries. He also registered elite NFL combine results (4.91 forty and 25 bench press reps) and will help protect Matt Ryan in Atlanta for the foreseeable future.


With the 13th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins selected Clemson DT Christian Wilkins. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Wilkins is one of a number of Clemson defensive lineman expected to go early in this draft, with fellow interior lineman Dexter Lawrence expected to go and defense end Clelin Ferrell going fourth overall to the Oakland Raiders. At 6-foot-3, 315 pounds, Wilkins has ideal size for the position, and his quickness at the point of attack is considered to be his strength.


The Green Bay Packers have selected DT/DE Rashan Gary with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The Packers hit a home run with this pick. Rashan Gary is one of the most talented players in this entire draft class. He recorded the best 40 time ever for someone 275+ lbs, and tested as an elite athlete at the NFL Combine. Gary can play anywhere on the defensive line, an ability the Packers are sure to use to their advantage. Gary has immense talent and should become a terror when his motor is running hot.


The Cincinnati Bengals have selected former Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams with the 11th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams is one of the best blockers in this year’s draft, and he fills a desperate need for a poor Bengals’ offensive line. He brings durability and versatility to the NFL, as he didn’t miss any of his 44 games with Alabama in three years of action and can play on both sides of the offensive line. Amazingly, he didn’t give up a single sack in 2018.


The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected LB Devin Bush with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Denver Broncos. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In exchange for the 10th Pick, Pittsburgh is sending Denver picks 20, 52, and a 2020 third-rounder. Bush is a special linebacker prospect that has the ability to make plays both in the pass and run games. The former Michigan product will help replace Ryan Shazier in the middle of the Steelers' defense.


With the number nine overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected defensive tackle Ed Oliver. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Oliver is a true three-down defensive tackle with pass-rushing ability who should step in and start right away for the rebuilding and retooling Bills. He is a bit undersized but makes up for it with excellent athletic ability. While he is not as reliable against the run as he is rushing the passer, he should have plenty of early success in today's NFL.


The Detroit Lions have selected tight end T.J. Hockenson with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: T.J. Hockenson is the most complete tight end prospect in years and represents a huge get for Matthew Stafford and the Lions. He is an excellent receiver, and projects as an immediate starter. Hockenson should be considered a TE1 candidate.


The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected former Kentucky OLB Josh Allen with the seventh pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Allen is one of the best edge rushers in this year’s draft class, and he was widely considered to be a top-5 talent. The Jaguars have more pressing needs (specifically on the offensive line and in the receiving game), but Allen was the best available pick and a steal at No. 7.


The New York Giants have selected quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a surprise. Not only did the Giants theoretically reach here, but they likely could've traded down and gotten him several picks later. Of course, Giants GM Dave Gettleman has famously never traded down before. Jones is close with Eli Manning so there likely won't be much animosity here. Jones is now the quarterback of the future for the Odell Beckham-less Giants.


With the number five overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected LSU linebacker Devin White. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: With the Raiders stunning everyone and taking Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell with the fourth overall pick, the Bucs were in an interesting position with Josh Allen, Ed Oliver, and Devin White still available. There were rumors that they might be looking to trade back with a team looking to move up for a quarterback, but they ultimately went with Devin White, a three-down linebacker who should instantly step in and help their defense.
