9. Shaquill Griffin – Seattle Seahawks – 25

Griffin may be the best scheme fit on this list. He’s had to deal with subpar safety play in Seattle, but has still been a very solid player. He may prove to be too expensive for Cleveland but would be a major solidifying force in the Browns secondary.

8. Cam Sutton – Pittsburgh Steelers – 26

Another solid Steeler, Sutton is a versatile defender who primarily lines up in the slot, but who can also hold up on the boundary. Pittsburgh can’t afford to keep both Hilton and Sutton, and may not be able to retain either.

7. Desmond King – Tennessee Titans – 26

King was an elite slot corner in 2017 and 2018 for the Chargers, but hasn’t been quite as good since. He was dealt to the Titans mid-season for a 2021 sixth-round pick, a move that could end up being a 10-game rental for the worst stretch of King’s career. With a full offseason to adjust to a new defense, perhaps King could return to his early form.

6. A.J Bouye – Denver Broncos – 29

Bouye had three great seasons for the Texans and Jaguars, but had had some trouble over the past two years. He’s not too far removed from some high-level play though, and isn’t yet 30 years old.
