If not for Xavier Worthy, Nate Wiggins would have taken the fastest man in the draft award. Jacksonville looks to get back in the playoffs, selecting Nate Wiggins will help their defense get them there.

The Dolphins get a franchise wide receiver in Brian Thomas Jr. The receiver from LSU posted a 4.33 40-yard dash, not as fast as Xavier Worthy, but at 6'3 203 pounds Brian Thomas is the big target receiver Miami is missing.

With Darius Slay turning 33 in January of 2024, the Eagles look to get younger in the secondary. DeJean is a dynamic play-maker who can play defense and special teams.
