Mitchapalooza. The franchise has done everything possible to make its second-year quarterback feel comfortable, starting with the hiring of the hottest young offensive mind available (Matt Nagy) and continuing with a splurge on free-agent pass catchers (

Roquan Smith. (The inside linebacker’s a perfect quarterback for Vic Fangio’s defense, boasting the versatile skill set and football IQ today’s NFL teams crave in second-level defenders.) After that, Ryan Pace went back to pampering his 23-year-old signal-caller. Daniels, an interior O-lineman who spent much of the pre-draft process as a first-round mock mainstay, feels like a steal at No. 39. And Miller instantly become a favorite of anyone who popped in his tape, as a hyper-competitive playmaker who gets absolutely everything out of his 5-11, 201-pound frame.


Yeah, life is good these days for

"The Pretty Boy Assassin," who’s being put in prime position for a breakout sophomore campaign. One note on the Day 3 haul: Nichols was a small-school favorite of Draft Twitter, especially after his fine showing at the East-West Shrine Game. Sleeper potential. With

Buccaneers’ secondary some needed juice, I figured. And he wouldn’t even have to set foot on a plane to relocate from Tallahassee to Tampa. He’d actually be moving much closer to his hometown of Haines City, Florida! So, yes, I was a bit surprised when the Bucs traded down. And I was utterly stunned when Jason Licht opted for Vea over James at No. 12. But as the draft played out, I came to appreciate Licht’s master plan … despite the fact that I do believe Tampa could regret passing on James. The 2017

With the pair of second-round picks obtained in the trade down to 12, Tampa infused its secondary with some of that needed juice referenced above, adding Stewart and Davis to the CB mix. Given all the intriguing new faces across the defense, it’s easy to imagine significant improvement in 2018. That’s the hope with the run game, too. Tampa spent its other two premium picks on a big-play running back (Jones) and a mauling guard (Cappa). All in all, Licht hit a number of need areas. Touche. Still think Derwin would’ve looked mighty nice in pewter, though.

is the kind of well-rounded, stout back who can make an immediate impact in the NFL. But a good ground game also requires a decent offensive line. And that’s something Seattle has lacked for years. Prior to the draft, Matt Harmon astutely explained why

"run blocking" is the Seahawks’ fatal flaw. What did they do to calm Harmon’s nerves? Wait until late in the fifth round to select an offensive tackle who bombed the combine, spawning questions about his athleticism and work ethic. On the defensive side of the ball — you know, the side that’s seen a massive talent drain this offseason — Seattle spent a third-round pick on Green, whose inside-outside skill set pegs him as a potential

Michael Bennett replacement. But dude’s raw. Here’s what an AFC regional scout told Lance Zierlein: "I wanted him to go back to school because he probably would have been a top-10 pick next year. He’s not strong enough to handle NFL guys yet so this year may be a redshirt year for him." So let’s stick a pin in those Bennett comps for now. Griffin’s
