The Raiders will be doing cartwheels if Parsons, a potential Top 10 pick, falls to them at No. 17. Yes, they need a new offensive line after bizarrely cutting their whole unit, but Parsons is a Top 10 talent that could help Las Vegas get a pass-rusher, bone-crunching linebacker, and defensive cornerstone in one package.
Parsons has the speed to cover sideline to sideline, the strength to power through blockers in the trenches, and a motor that Jon Gruden will love to see. The Raiders defense still needs to find some stars if they are to compete in the AFC West, and Parsons could be the man in the middle for the next decade if he is developed correctly.
After Houston gifted Chase to Miami due to the Laremy Tunsil trade, the Dolphins continue to get Tagovailoa some weapons by adding his former college running mate in Harris. At 6-2 and 230 pounds, Harris should be able to be the sledgehammer the Dolphins need in the backfield while possessing more than enough speed to break off big plays.
Myles Gaskin and Matt Breida are fine backups, but Miami should’ve learned from the end of Dan Marino’s career that failing to give a franchise quarterback a running game can lead to disaster. Harris should be good for 15-20 carries a game, making him the featured component of Miami’s new-look offense that finally gives Tua some support.
