Picks: 2.03, 3.08, 4.02, 4.08

Draft preview: Rick could really use a WR who can slot in immediately in the flex for this year if he’s looking to contend. If not, Using pick 6 on an RB who may not contribute as much year 1 might start a rebuild. He can address his ancient QB situation in later rounds.

Status: Middle-tier
