NFL mock draft: Jaelen Strong to Saints, Arik Armstead to 49ers, Eric Kendricks to Texans

Which

The NFL Draft is full of Pac-12 prospects that can do a lot at the next level, especially if they find the right situation. SB Nation has a mock full of conference of champion talents. We've already covered the players that might end up in the top ten.

13. The New Orleans Saints select Jaelen Strong, Arizona St. Sun Devils wide receiver

The Saints are doing some restocking. The passing game isn't quite as good as it used to be, and the team's offense lost its potency last season. Jaelen Strong is a legitimate first option wideout, and New Orleans could give Drew Brees some more weapons. This is a huge change.

15. The San Francisco 49ers pick Arik Armstead, Oregon Ducks defensive end

The 49ers have lost, well, pretty much everyone. So they could just afford to get the best athletic talent on the board. Armstead is one of the best athletes available, and the Niners could definitely use him in the weeks to come.

16. The Houston Texans take Eric Kendricks, UCLA Bruins inside linebacker

Houston could afford to give J.J. Watt more help defensively. The Texans are a decent defense but far from as dominant as they should be with a transcendent talent like Watt. Getting a fierce relentless tackler like Kendricks would be huge.
