5 round mock draft edition 2

 

Round 1

1.                  Carolina (2-14) - Team Needs: QB, 2DT, WR1, RG, RDE, TE, CB Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU: I have thought long and hard about this pick. After mocking Fairley to the Panthers 3 times in a row, I realized that it did not make any sense. Fairley is a one year wonder and therefore is a high risk pick. Yes he has a high ceiling but do we know if he is the player he was in 2010 or the player he was in 2009? The answer is we don’t. The same thing goes for Da’Quan Bowers. However, on the other hand Patrick Peterson has dominated the SEC for 2 straight seasons. He came into the 2010 season rated as the #1 corner and a possible top 5 pick and he ended the year with the same rating. He has shown consistency and incredible talent in the past 2 years at LSU enough so to become the 1st cornerback ever to be the #1 pick. Other options are Nick Fairley, A.J. Green, and Da’Quan Bowers.

2.                  Denver (4-12) - Team Needs: DT, CB, SS, RT, TE, DE, RB Da’Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson: This is not the pick I would make but insider reports claim that the Broncos are really high on Bowers. I personally would give them Fairley but when I am mocking a draft it is not about what I would do. I am trying to predict what will happen in the actual draft. The question with Bowers is which player is he? The one he showed in 2010 or the one he showed in 2009? I think he will be a very good player in the NFL but he has too high of a potential to bust for my liking. The other option is Nick Fairley.

3.                  Buffalo (4-12) - Team Needs: QB, LT, DE, Rush LB, RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3Nick Fairley, DE/DT, Auburn: Fairley is too good of value here to pass up. I have mocked him at number one so many times but I have had a change of heart described above. The question is the same as with Bowers. Which player is he? I think he will be better than Bowers in the NFL and him and Kyle Williams will provide a great set of defensive linemen for the Bills who have a ton of needs. Other options are Von Miller and Cam Newton.

4.                   Cincinnati (4-12) - Team Needs: DE, RB, WR, ILB, QB, LG, SS, K, KR – Marcell Dareus, DE, Alabama: Dareus will have to transition to a 4-3 DE but I think he has great talent and ability to do that. Dareus is a much safer pick than Bowers or Fairley since he has had 2 straight dominating seasons. I think he will go through some growing pains the first half of the season but like Dunlap did this year, he will show his skill in the 2nd half and then dominate in 2012. Other Options are Cameron Jordan and A.J. Green.

5.                  Arizona (5-11) - Team Needs: QB, LT, 2 Rush LB, LG, RT, CB, FS Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M: Miller is the best 3-4 OLB in this year’s draft. He is an incredible pass rusher and will be a sack machine in the NFL. He will need to work on his pass coverage skills but he will be a player that imposes fear in opposing QB’s eyes for years to come. Other options are Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert, Robert Quinn, and Gabe Carimi.

6.                  Cleveland (5-11) - Team Needs: WR, RT, DE, DT, weakside LB, CB, RG, SS, K – A.J. Green, WR, Georgia: Green is an elite WR prospect. He draws many comparisons to Calvin Johnson and rightfully so. If he can run in the 4.4’s at the combine he will cement my opinion on him. I think he will give Colt McCoy the weapon he lacked in his rookie season. Other options are Nick Fairley, Da’Quan Bowers, and Cameron Liuget.

7.                  San Francisco (6-10) - Team Needs: QB, DE, Rush LB, CB, FS, WR, OTCameron Jordan, DE, California: Jordan might be a little of a reach here but reports have it that Harbaugh likes Alex Smith as his QB so that won’t be the pick. That leaves us looking at DE, OLB, and CB. DE is by far the biggest need and Jordan is the best DE available. Other options are Robert Quinn, Prince Amukamara, and maybe just maybe Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert.

8.                  Tennessee (6-10) - Team Needs: QB, LG, ILB, C, DE, Weak LB, SS, DT – Cam Newton, QB, Auburn: Newton is in my mind the best QB in this draft. He draws comparisons to Vince Young but I don’t see them. Newton is faster, stronger, has a better throwing arm, and is more accurate that Vince Young. IMO, he is a poor man’s Big Ben. With a year developing behind Kerry Collins, I think Newton will emerge as a great QB. Other options are Blaine Gabbert and Cameron Jordan.

9.                  Dallas (6-10) - Team Needs: CB, RT, FS, RE, LG, SS, DL, WR1 Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin: This might be a little high for Carimi and many fans would prefer Amukamara here but I think there will be better CB prospects in round 2 that can contribute right away than OT’s in round 2 that could contribute right away. Carimi is the best offensive tackle in this draft and would be a huge upgrade at RT. Other Option is Prince Amukamara.

10.              Washington (6-10) - Team Needs: QB, WR, RT, Rush LB, ILB, NT, CB, RE, FS, RG, C, FB, K, PRobert Quinn, OLB, UNC: Quinn came into the season as a top 5 lock but a bogus suspension has caused his stock to fall slightly. He is too great of a value here to the Redskins at #10. Quinn will be a great OLB in the NFL and will be a great pass rusher. He will take some work and some coaching but given time he might be better than Von Miller. Other Options are Gabe Carimi, Blaine Gabbert, and Julio Jones.

11.              Houston (6-10) - Team Needs: NT, 2 Rush LB, FS, SS, CB, WR, P, DL Aldon Smith, OLB, Missouri: Houston has decided to switch to a 3-4 without the necessary pieces so basically every pick will need to address a defensive position. Smith reminds me of Jason Pierre Paul in his athletic ability and will be one of Houston’s 2 OLB’s in their new 3-4 defense. Other Options are Phil Taylor, Prince Amukamara, and Brandon Harris.

12.              Minnesota (6-10) - Team Needs: QB, 2 OLB, 2S, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT, TE Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri: I don’t know why so many people like Gabbert in the top 10. He is inaccurate, has a slow release, and very immobile. However, I think at 12 he is decent value. Minnesota has said they want to take a QB in the early rounds of the draft and I think they will end up taking Gabbert. Another option is Akeem Ayers.

13.              Detroit (6-10) - Team Needs: 2OLB, CB, LT, C, SS, RBAkeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA: Ayers is the best 4-3 OLB in this draft. The Lions need to get 2 OLB’s in this draft since both of their starting OLB’s should be upgraded. Many un-informed mockers give the Lions an OT since Stafford gets hurt every year. However, the Lions OL ranked in the top 10 in sacks allowed and quarterback pressures so the injuries are more a result of Stafford’s brittle body. Other Options are Brandon Harris and Nate Solder.

14.              St. Louis (7-9) - Team Needs: WR, RG, DT, Weak LB, SS, TE, RB, CB, DE Julio Jones, WR, Alabama: Jones came into this season as a potential top 10 pick. There is still a chance he does but I see him going to the Rams. He is a great route runner, has great size, and great speed but he has to improve his hands. With a strong showing at the combine he could sneak into the top 10. Other Options are Mike Pouncey and Corey Liuget.

15.              Miami (7-9) - Team Needs: QB, RB, FS, TE, LG, WR, CB3, Rush LB, OL - Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama: Ingram is the best RB in the draft but will need to run in the 4.4’s at the combine to solidify his top 20 draft slot. If he runs in the 4.5’s or 4.6’s then Leshoure could pass him as the #1 back in the draft. However, I see Ingram being a feature back in the NFL. He will never be a top 5 running back but I think he will end up being somewhere from #6 to #15 in the NFL. Other Options are Jake Locker, Gabe Carimi, and Mikel Leshoure.

16.              Jacksonville (8-8) - Team Needs: DE, 2S, CB, WR, Weak LB, QB, OL  - J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin: Watt lacks the speed to be a double digit sack guy in the NFL but I think he will be a very good run stopper who will also contribute 6-8 sacks a year in the NFL. Good value at number 16 and he will be a good player. Other options are Cameron Heyward, Corey Liuget, Rahim Moore, and Adrian Clayborn.

17.              New England - from Oakland (8-8) - Team Needs: G, OT, Rush LB, DE, WR, RB – Nate Solder, OT, Colorado: He is a very good value here at 17. He is the 2nd best OT in the draft but he needs to work on his footwork to be able to dominate DE’s in the NFL. He has great size and body frame so the only problem is his footwork. Other Options are Mike Pouncey, Derek Sherrod, Tyron Smith, Cameron Heyward, Brandon Harris, Corey Liuget, and Adrian Clayborn. The reason there are so many options is because the Patriots have 8 picks in the 1st four rounds so they will likely take BPA for every spot.

18.              San Diego (9-7) - Team Needs: Rush LB, DE, RT, ILB, WR, FS, CB3, ST Ryan Kerrigan, OLB, Purdue: The Chargers need to add a rush OLB and Kerrigan fills that mold. He can become a great sack specialist in the NFL. Some think he can be a DE but I don’t see it as he only weighs about 240 pounds (at most). Other Options are Cameron Heyward, Corey Liuget, and Adrian Clayborn.

19.              New York Giants (10-6) - Team Needs: LT, RB, C, Strong LB, LG, WR, FS, PTyron Smith, OT, USC: Smith is a good combine away from clearly being the best tackle in the draft. He has great footwork and a good frame but is a little light. He played his last year in college at 290 but reportedly weighs 307 now. He also only played RT at USC and will need to transition to the left side for the GMEN. I think he will do that rather quickly and will be a steal at this spot in the draft.

20.              Tampa Bay (10-6) - Team Needs: 2DE, ILB, RT, LG, Strong LB, RB, C, CB – Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa: After a great 2009 campaign, Clayborn struggled while facing constant double teams in 2010. He has great talent and raw ability but people question his work ethic. However, I think he will become a very good DE for the Bucs. Other Options are Martez Wilson, Cameron Heyward, and Corey Liuget.

21.              Kansas City* (10-6) - Team Needs: Rush LB, WR, NT, QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILBJonathan Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh: Baldwin came into the year as a potential top 10 pick but do to a 5’8” QB that could not throw 30 yards, his stats plummeted in 2010. However he has an incredible combination of size, strength, speed, and route running and with a strong combine he could surpass Jones as the #2 WR in this draft. Other Options are Phil Taylor and Justin Houston.

22.              Indianapolis* (10-6) - Team Needs: LT, RT, DT, RG, WR, SS, RB, QB, PDerek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State: Sherrod is the 4th best OT in this draft but he is probably the one that fits the Colts blocking scheme the best. He could begin his career on the right side and eventually transition to the left. Other options are Anthony Costanzo and Corey Liuget.

23.              Philadelphia* (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, RG, 2CB, 2OLB, SS, DE, - Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida: The Eagles must take an OL in the 1st round. Pouncey will be a huge upgrade at RG and will start right away. Maurkices’ success for the Steelers will elevate Mike’s draft stock. I think he is worthy of a late 1st to early 2nd round pick but the draft “experts” have him in the mid 20’s. Other Options are Anthony Costanzo and Prince Amukamara.

24.              New Orleans* (11-5) - Team Needs: DT, ILB, DE, RT, RB, strong LB, SSCorey Liuget, DT, Illinois: Liuget is a great talent and a great character. He works hard and is a classic over-achiever. I think he will be very good in the Saints system and will be able to contribute right away. He is the 3rd best 4-3 DT in the draft behind Fairley and Dareus and will be a steal here at 24. Other options are Martez Wilson and Mikel Leshoure.

25.              Seattle* (7-9) - Team Needs: CB, RT, LE, WR1, RG, QB, K Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska: Here is my explanation on why Prince plummets. I think he will be great in the NFL. However, I think he will have a poor 40 time at the combine and that could cause him to plummet. Also, if Dallas passes on him at 9 the only teams I see possible taking him are the Texans and the Eagles. Both of those teams have more pressing needs and there was great talent available at those positions. Nonetheless, the Seahawks are getting a steal here as Amukamara will be a stud. Other Options: Brandon Harris

26.              Baltimore* (12-4) - Team Needs: WR, DE, CB, ILB, RT, RG : Titus Young, WR, Boise State: The Ravens had a “great” WR core this year. NOT. Boldin proved that he needed Fitzgerald and not the other way around. Mason was ok but he is old. Houshmenzada (sp?) was not very good either. Stallworth disappointed as well. The Ravens need to get younger and faster at WR and Young can begin the overhaul. Other options are Torrey Smith, Cameron Heyward, and Muhammed Wilkerson.

27.              Atlanta* (13-3) - Team Needs: 2WR, LT, 2G, SS, strong LB, CB3, TE, DE Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland: The Falcons need to surround Ryan with more weapons. Outside of White and Turner the Falcons are really hurting for offensive weapons. Smith is as explosive as they come and reminds me a lot of Mike Wallace but a little slower. Other Options are Anthony Costanzo and Benjamin Ijalana.

28.              New England* (14-2) - Team Needs: G, Rush LB, DE, WR, RB Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State: Heyward saved his draft stock with a great bowl game. He has a ton of talent and ability but failed to put it all together this year. However, with proper coaching he will become a very good 3-4 DE. Other Options are Benjamin Ijalana, Muhammed Wilkerson, and Mikel Leshoure.

29.              Chicago* (11-5) - Team Needs: LT, LG, DT, C, WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Anthony Costanzo, OT, Boston College: The Bears OL is just awful. Downright terrible. Costanzo will have to work on his strength but if he does he could become a great LT. The Bears are at a spot where they have to hope one of the 5 OT’s fall to them but if they don’t they could take Benjamin Ijalana or Muhammed Wilkerson.

30.              New York Jets* (11-5) - Team Needs: rush LB, DE, CB, ILB, WR, K Muhammed Wilkerson, DE, Temple: The Jets need to improve at the DE position. Wilkerson is a great talent that really dominated this year. He is good value here. He has the potential to become on of the best DE’s of this draft class. I think after Fairley, Dareus, and Jordan, the rest of the DE class is wide open. Between Watt, Heyward, Clayborn and Wilkerson they will battle it out for the 4th to 7th DE’s taken in this draft. Other Options are Phil Taylor and Brandon Harris.

31.              Pittsburgh* (12-4) - Team Needs: RG, CB, OT, NT, DE, FS, P, KBrandon Harris, CB, Miami: Harris is my 3rd ranked cornerback in this draft. Many say that Jimmy Smith and/or Aaron Williams are better than Harris but watching a lot of film on the 3 of them, I think it is pretty clear that Harris is better. Harris has great ball skills and is a great, great tackler. He will excel in the Steelers system. He will take some time to learn Dick Lebau’s system but once he gets it he will dominate in it. The other option here is Phil Taylor.

32.              Green Bay* (10-6) - Team Needs: Rush LB, LG, DE, RB, OT, WR, K Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia: The Packers need to get another OLB to go on the opposite side of Clay Matthews. Houston is great value here and is a great talent. With proper coaching on his pass coverage and run support, he will become a great OLB and him and Matthews will be feared by NFL QB’s and OT’s.


Round 2

1.      New England - from Carolina (2-14) - Team Needs: G, Rush LB, WR, RBBenjamin Ijalana, OG, Villanova: Ijalana has been a dominating D1-AA OL for the past 3 years. He is a great value at this point and will fit in the Patriots scheme. Other Options and Rodney Hudson, Mike Leshoure, and Phil Taylor.

2.      Buffalo (4-12) - Team Needs: QB, LT, Rush LB, RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3Jake Locker, QB, Washington: Locker would have been the #1 pick if he entered the draft last year. However, he decided to return for his senior season and he really struggled. Granted, he had no talent to help him out but he showed his flaws. He has terrible accuracy. Other than his putrid accuracy, he has great arm strength and great mobility. Chan Gailey can develop a QB out of nothing and I think he will turn Locker into a star.

3.      Cincinnati (4-12) - Team Needs: RB, WR, ILB, QB, LG, SS, K, KR Martez Wilson, ILB, N.C. State: Wilson is the best ILB in this draft and could go as high as 24 to the Saints. If he is still here, the Bengals have to take him. He has great speed and size and will be able to thrive in the Bengals defense. Other Options are Mikel Leshoure, Christian Ponder, and Leonard Hankerson.

4.      Denver (4-12) - Team Needs: DT, CB, SS, RT, TE, RB Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado: The Broncos need to go best defensive player available with their first 5 picks and Smith ranks #1 on my board at this spot. Other options are Rahim Moore, Phil Taylor, and Stephen Paea.

5.      Cleveland (5-11) - Team Needs: RT, DE, DT, weakside LB, CB, RG, SS, K Mason Foster, OLB, Washington: The Browns have to spend multiple picks on getting the pieces to switch to a 4-3. Ideally, one of the good 4-3 DT’s fall here but in this mock I don’t have any of them. Paea is a bit of a reach as well as Allen Bailey. So, the Browns take a great OLB that will help make this transition much easier. Other Options are Phil Taylor and Stephen Paea. (I am not mocking Phil Taylor to these 4-3 teams in need of a DT because I don’t think Taylor will be able to play 4-3 DT. I see him strictly as a 3-4 NT).

6.      Arizona (5-11) - Team Needs: QB, LT, Rush LB, LG, RT, CB, FS Rodney Hudson, OG, Florida State: The Cardinals need to spend at least 2 picks on their offensive line in this draft. Hudson needs to gain some weight but if he does that he will be a very good guard in the NFL. They could also take Danny Watkins, Marcus Cannon, or Christian Ponder.

7.      Tennessee (6-10) - Team Needs: LG, ILB, C, DE, Weak LB, SS, DT Stefen Wisniewski, G/C, Penn State: Wisniewski is the best center in this year’s draft. He could start at LG and then next season he could transition to Center. The Titans could also look at Greg Jones or Marcus Cannon.

8.      Dallas (6-10) - Team Needs: CB, FS, RE, LG, SS, DL, WR1 Aaron Williams, CB, Texas: Just as I thought, there is a great CB prospect available for the Cowboys in the 2nd round. Williams has a great combination of size and speed and also loves to tackle. He is a steal here in the 2nd round. Other Options are Rahim Moore and Curtis Brown.

9.      Washington (6-10) - Team Needs: QB, WR, RT, ILB, NT, CB, RE, FS, RG, C, FB, K, PChristian Ponder, QB, Florida State: Ponder is a good value here and is a great talent. He has good footwork, arm strength, and smarts but he is not exceptional at any one thing. He also spent most of this season battling injuries. With a year on the bench, he will replace Rex Grossman or Donovan McNabb. Other Options are Leonard Hankerson, Phil Taylor, or Curtis Brown.

10.  Houston (6-10) - Team Needs: NT, Rush LB, FS, SS, CB, WR, P, DL Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor: As I said earlier, the Texans decided to switch to a 3-4 without the necessary pieces. However, they acquire a very valuable piece in Phil Taylor. He is the best 3-4 NT in the draft and will be a dominating force in the NFL for years to come. I don’t think there are any other options if Taylor is here, but if he is not they could look at Jerrell Powe or Rahim Moore.

11.  Minnesota (6-10) - Team Needs: 2 OLB, 2S, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT, TE Rahim Moore, FS, UCLA: Moore is far and away the best safety in the draft and if he is still here when the Vikings pick, they have to snatch him. He will instantly upgrade the safety position for the Vikings, Other Options are Bruce Carter or Curtis Brown.

12.  Detroit (6-10) - Team Needs: OLB, CB, LT, C, SS, RBCurtis Brown, CB, Texas: Brown is the best CB available and the Lions need to upgrade their CB position. They could look at another OLB like Bruce Carter but I think Brown makes more sense.

13.  San Francisco (6-10) - Team Needs: QB, Rush LB, CB, FS, WR, OT Sam Acho, OLB, Texas: The Niners need to improve their pass rush. Adding Jordan in round 1 helps, but adding Acho will improve it even more. Acho is a great athlete who I think will excel as a pass rusher in the NFL. Other options are Brooks Reed and Colin Kaepernick.

14.  Denver - from Miami (7-9) Team Needs: DT, SS, RT, TE, RB Drake Nevis, DT, LSU: Nevis is a good 4-3 DT prospect if he can gain 5 to 10 pounds. He is super talented and works hard but for some reason he just did not put up great numbers this year. However, with proper coaching I think he can help anchor the Broncos front 7 with Da’Quan Bowers and Elvis Dumerville. Other Options are Stephen Paea, DeAndre McDaniel, and Kyle Rudolph.

15.  St. Louis (7-9) - Team Needs: RG, DT, Weak LB, SS, TE, RB, CB, DE Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State: Paea, like Nevis, is undersized but works tremendously hard. He has great speed and footwork and I think he will be a success in the NFL when he gains some weight. Other options are Marcus Cannon, DeAndre McDaniel, and Kyle Rudolph.

16.  Oakland (8-8) - Team Needs: CB, RT, LG, C, Strong LB, WR1, TE Kendric Burney, CB, UNC: Al Davis loves fast players and Burney is as fast as they come. He is good in man coverage and will fit in the Raiders scheme. Due to a stupid contract stipulation, Namdi Asamougua will be a free agent this year so the Raiders must find a CB with their first pick in this draft. Other Options are Rashad Carmichael, Johnny Patrick, and Brandon Burton.

17.  Jacksonville (8-8) - Team Needs: 2S, CB, WR, Weak LB, QB, OL  - Robert Sands, SS, WVU: Sands is the best SS in this draft just slightly edging out DeAndre McDaniel. Sands is a great playmaker and a great hitter and he will be exciting in the NFL. I can’t wait to watch this kid. Other Options are DeAndre McDaniel, Quinton Carter, and Rashad Carmichael.

18.  San Diego (9-7) - Team Needs: DE, RT, ILB, WR, FS, CB3, ST Allen Bailey, DE, Miami: Bailey is an extremely athletic player but he has underachieved in college. He has never really dominated games like people think he can. He is a first round talent so he is great value for the Chargers here who have a need at DE. Other options are Greg Jones and Leonard Hankerson.

19.  Tampa Bay (10-6) Team Needs: DE, ILB, RT, LG, Strong LB, RB, C, CB – Greg Jones, ILB, Michigan State: Jones had an incredible year anchoring the Spartans linebacker core and is clearly the 2nd best ILB prospect in the draft. He has great speed and athleticism and tackles well. He has loads of potential and is good value at this point of the 2nd round. Other Options are Pernell McPhee and Marcus Gilbert.

20.  New York Giants (10-6) - Team Needs: RB, C, Strong LB, LG, WR, FS, PMikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois: Leshoure is too great of a value here to pass up on. Even if the Giants resign Bradshaw, Leshoure will still be a great pick. He has great vision and power and also has very good speed to go along with that. Other Options are Jake Kirkpatrick and Bruce Carter.

21.  Indianapolis* (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, DT, RG, WR, SS, RB, QB, PJerrell Powe, NT/DT, Ole Miss: The Colts need a 1-tech DT to help out their run defense. Powe is the best 1-tech DT available and will be a success in the Colts system. Good value here and a good pick. Other Options are Marcus Gilbert, Marcus Cannon, and Marvin Austin.

22.  Philadelphia* (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, 2CB, 2OLB, SS, DE, - Rashad Carmichael, CB, Virginia Tech: The Colts need a lot of help at cornerback and Carmichael can really help out. He might never be a really good #1 corner but I think he will be an incredibly successful #2 corner in the NFL. Other Options are Marcus Gilbert, Johnny Patrick, or DeAndre McDaniel.

23.  Kansas City* (10-6) - Team Needs: Rush LB, NT, QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILBBrooks Reed, OLB, Arizona: Reed is a decent value here but the Chiefs need a rush LB. He is very athletic and fast and is a great tackler. He will help make that much improved Chiefs defense even better. Other Options are Sione Fua, or Ryan Mallet.

24.  New Orleans* (11-5) - Team Needs: ILB, DE, RT, RB, strong LB, SSQuan Sturdivant, ILB, UNC: Sturdivant is a very talented player who will end up being a steal in this draft. He is very athletic and fast and tackles well but will need to work on his pass coverage. However, with proper coaching he can become a very elite ILB in this league. Other options are Pernell McPhee and Marcus Gilbert.

25.  Seattle* (7-9) - Team Needs: RT, LE, WR1, RG, QB, K Marcus Gilbert, OT, Florida: Gilbert is a good athlete and has decent footwork but it could improve. He is a little raw but with some proper coaching he will be a very good RT in the NFL. He has to get stronger, and a little better footwork but if he can do that he will be a good to great RT in the NFL. Other Options are Pernell McPhee or Christian Ballard.

26.  Baltimore* (12-4) - Team Needs: DE, CB, ILB, RT, RG  - Johnny Patrick, CB, Louisville: Patrick is a super talented player that saw his stock take a dramatic rise after a great season. He will need some work on tackling and press coverage but once he does that he will be a very good corner. Other Options are Christian Ballard or Nate Irving.

27.  Atlanta* (13-3) - Team Needs: WR, LT, 2G, SS, strong LB, CB3, TE, DE Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor: Cannon is a little better but I don’t think he really fits in the Falcons blocking scheme. They could double dip on WR in the 1st two rounds but I don’t think that is productive. They get a very good player in Watkins whose only real downfall is his age. Other Options are Marcus Cannon or Leonard Hankerson.

28.  New England* (14-2) - Team Needs: Rush LB, WR, RBJabaal Sheard, OLB, Pittsburgh – Sheard is very athletic but will need to make the transition from DE to OLB. After some growing pains I think he will become a very good player. The Patriots will probably take BPA with all their picks and Sheard is number 1 on my big board here. Other Options are Leonard Hankerson and Jordan Todman.

29.  San Diego - from New York Jets* (11-5) - Team Needs: RT, ILB, WR, FS, CB3, ST Jason Pinkston, OT, Pittsburgh: Pinkston projects very well as a RT in this league. He is athletic and quick but he needs to get stronger. He has good footwork but he will need some time to adjust to the speed and strength of the NFL players. Other Options are Nate Irving and Leonard Hankerson.

30.  Chicago* (11-5) - Team Needs: LG, DT, C, WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Marvin Austin, DT, UNC: Austin came into the year as a potential top 10 pick but after not playing this season his stock fell an incredible amount. At the 30th pick of the 2nd round is way too good of value to pass up here. They could look at another OL here but I think Austin is clearly the BPA. Other Options are Marcus Cannon and Jake Kirkpatrick.

31.  Pittsburgh* (12-4) - Team Needs: RG, OT, NT, DE, FS, P, KMarcus Cannon, OG, TCU: Cannon fills a big need for the Steelers and will likely start right away. He is massive and is surprisingly quick. He will be a very good RG for the Steelers and I can’t wait to see him dress up for the Black & Gold. Other Options are Christian Ballard or Quinton Carter.

32.  Green Bay* (10-6) - Team Needs: LG, DE, RB, OT, WR, K Pernell McPhee, DE, Mississippi State: A very talented player and he is great value here. The Falcons need to get younger and better at DE and McPhee will help tremendously. They could look at an OG like John Moffit or an OT like Joseph Barksdale.


Round 3

1.      Carolina (2-14) - Team Needs: QB, 2DT, WR1, RG, RDE, TE,Jurrell Casey, DT, USC: After taking Peterson in round 1, the Panthers need to improve the defensive tackle position in the 3rd round and probably again at some point in the later rounds. Casey is a very good player and I don’t know why his draft stock is so low but he is a good value here.

2.      Cincinnati (4-12) - Team Needs: RB, WR, QB, LG, SS, K, KR Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami: Hankerson is too good of a value to pass up here. If Owens or Chad Johnson is not back with the team, Hankerson will be able to take their spot as a starting receiver. He has great potential due to his size and speed but needs to refine his route running.

3.      Denver (4-12) - Team Needs: SS, RT, TE, RB Quinton Carter, S, Oklahoma: The Broncos need to upgrade the safety position. After passing on Rahim Moore in the 2nd round, Carter is a great value here in the 3rd. He is a good play maker and tackler and will be a big upgrade for the Broncos.

4.      Buffalo (4-12) - Team Needs: LT, Rush LB, RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3 Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU: I am not sure that Barksdale will ever be able to play LT but he will definitely be a good RT. The Bills tackles are so awful that even though he is still raw, he might start from day 1. If he does, he will struggle initially but he will become a very good tackle.

5.      Arizona (5-11) - Team Needs: QB, LT, Rush LB, RT, CB, FS Chris Hairston, OT, Clemson: The Cardinals need to spend multiple picks addressing the offensive line. After getting Hudson in round 2 to play guard, they snag Hairston in round 3. Hairston will need a year to develop, but he will become a good LT in the NFL.

6.      Cleveland (5-11) - Team Needs: RT, DE, DT, CB, RG, SS, K Jarvis Jenkins, DT, Clemson: The Browns need to spend at least 4 picks on defense in this draft. Switching to a 4-3, they need to get at least 1 LB, at least 2 DL, and at least one secondary player. They got Mason Foster in round 2 to play LB so now they get Jenkins to play inside at DT.

7.      Dallas (6-10) - Team Needs: FS, RE, LG, SS, DL, WR1 Deunta Williams, FS, UNC: The Cowboys took a chance passing on Rahim Moore in round 2 but they lucked out with Williams falling to them in round 3. Williams is a 1st round athlete but is a little raw in terms of football experience. With proper coaching, he will become a very good FS.

8.      New Orleans - from Washington (6-10) - Team Needs: DE, RT, RB, strong LB, SSJordan Todman, RB, Connecticut: Todman is great value here in the 3rd round. The Saints need a RB that can handle 20 carries a game and Todman is more than capable. He had a great year this season and I think he will be a very good back in the NFL.

9.      Houston (6-10) - Team Needs: Rush LB, FS, SS, CB, WR, P, DL Jeremy Beal, OLB, Oklahoma: He will need to transition from DE to OLB but I think he will be an above average OLB in a 3-4 system. The Texans decided to switch to a 3-4 without the necessary pieces but they have done a good job in these 1st 3 rounds getting the essential pieces to play a 3-4.

10.  New England - from Minnesota (6-10) - Team Needs: WR, RBJerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy: Jernigan is an incredibly fast player who also runs very good routes. He comes from a small school but he will make an already dangerous offense even more dangerous.

11.  Detroit (6-10) - Team Needs: OLB, LT, C, SS, RBBruce Carter, OLB, UNC: After getting Ayers in round 1, the Lions find his playing mate in round 3. Carter is a great talent that with proper coaching will be very good. Suh, Ayers, Brown, and Carter along with Delmas gives the Lions 5 very good young defensive players.

12.  San Francisco (6-10) - Team Needs: QB, CB, FS, WR, OT Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada: Colin is too good of a value to pass up on here. He is extremely athletic and has  a good arm and with proper coaching he will become a very good QB. I think he could push Alex Smith for the starting spot in 2012.

13.  Tennessee (6-10) - Team Needs: LG, ILB, DE, Weak LB, SS, DT Nate Irving, ILB, N.C. State: The Titans need to improve their ILB position. Irving is another talented player who will help the defense tremendously. He is the 4th best ILB in the draft but will need a strong combine to hold on to that spot as Casey Matthews, Kelvin Sheppard, Colin McCarthy, and Mark Herzlich are all right on his heels.

14.  St. Louis (7-9) - Team Needs: RG, Weak LB, SS, TE, RB, CB, DE Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame: At this point in the draft, Rudolph is too good of a value to pass up on. I know the Rams have bigger needs but getting an extremely talented player like Rudolph at this point in the draft is an incredible steal. Along with Julio Jones, Rudolph will give Bradford two weapons that are so much better than any he had this year.

15.  Miami (7-9) - Team Needs: QB, FS, TE, LG, WR, CB3, Rush LB, OL Ryan Mallet, QB, Arkansas: Despite some leadership and intelligence concerns, Mallet has put up incredible numbers in the past two years. Like Rudolph, he is incredible value at this point in the 3rd round. He could push Henne for a starting spot this year but even if he does not start, he will force Henne to play better.

16.  Jacksonville (8-8) - Team Needs: S, CB, WR, Weak LB, QB, OL  - Brandon Burton, CB, Utah: Burton is a great prospect who has first round talent. He has great size and speed and is very good in man coverage but will need to improve his tackling form as he tends to arm tackle.

17.  Oakland (8-8) - Team Needs: RT, LG, C, Strong LB, WR1, TE Jake Kirkpatrick, C, Nevada: The Raiders have holes at 3 positions on their offensive line. The best OL available is Kirkpatrick. He is the 2nd best Center of this deep center class and is great value here in the 3rd round.

18.  San Diego (9-7) - Team Needs: ILB, WR, FS, CB3, ST Casey Matthews, ILB, Oregon: The Chargers need to find an ILB to replace Merriman and also some players that could play Special Teams. Matthews fills both of those needs. He has a great work ethic and is very athletic. Good value here.

19.  New York Giants (10-6) - Team Needs: C, Strong LB, LG, WR, FS, PTim Barnes, C, Missouri: Barnes is a good center prospect but I am sure the Giants would have rather Kirkpatrick fell to them. However, Barnes is a good prospect that will be very good in the NFL.

20.  Tampa Bay (10-6) - Team Needs: DE, RT, LG, Strong LB, RB, C, CB – Greg Romeus, DE, Pittsburgh: Romeus came into the year as a possible top 10 pick but an injury caused his stock to fall. He is great value here and could be a steal in this draft.

21.  Philadelphia* (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, CB, 2OLB, SS, DE, - Lawrence Wilson, OLB, Connecticut: The Eagles have three big holes on their roster. The right side of their line, the cornerback position, and the OLB position. They already began to address the first two so now they address OLB with a very good player in Lawrence Wilson.

22.  Kansas City* (10-6) - Team Needs: NT, QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILBKendrick Ellis, NT, Hampton: The Chiefs need a big NT to anchor their front 7. I now have Ellis ranked just above Williams and Fua so I gave them Ellis. Also, Ellis projects much better in the Chiefs system than Fua and Williams do.

23.  Indianapolis* (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, RG, WR, SS, RB, QB, PJohn Moffit, OG, Wisconsin: Moffit is an incredible value here at the bottom half of the 3rd round. He will excel in the Colts blocking scheme and will help to make Peyton Manning last longer.

24.  New Orleans* (11-5) - Team Needs: DE, RT, strong LB, SSDemarcus Love, OT, Arkansas: The Saints could use an upgrade at RT and with a year of development Love will be exactly that. Another one of the tackles that will never be a LT but I think he will be a very good RT.

25.  San Diego - from Seattle* (7-9) - Team Needs: WR, FS, CB3, ST Tandon Doss, WR/RB/KR, Indiana: Doss is very much an all-purpose player. He is a player that will make an already dangerous offense even better. He can play slot WR and the scat back role than Darren Sproles plays.

26.  Baltimore* (12-4) - Team Needs: DE, ILB, RT, RG  - Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa: Ballard is an absolute steal here. I tried to give him to a team earlier in the draft but I just did not find someone to give him to. However, at this point in the 3rd round it is just the type of player the Ravens need.

27.  Atlanta* (13-3) - Team Needs: WR, LT, G, SS, strong LB, Cb3, TE , TE, DE Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin: The Falcons need to draft a TE to develop for a year behind Tony Gonzalez. Kendricks is a very good TE who with a year learning from one of the best TE’s ever will become a very good player.

28.  New England* (14-2) - Team Needs: RB- Ryan Williams, RB Virginia Tech: I almost gave the Patriots him earlier in the 3rd round but I figured he would still be here and he is. A very complete back who will help Woodhead and Green-Ellis out a lot.

29.  Chicago* (11-5) - Team Needs: LG, C, WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Orlando Franklin, OG, Miami: The Bears offensive line is so bad that they should spend 3 picks on it this year. They could even spend their first 3 picks on it. However, Austin was too good to pass up on in round 3 and they still get a really good guard prospect in round 3. He will likely start right away do to how bad the Bears line is.

30.  New York Jets* (11-5) - Team Needs: rush LB, CB, ILB, WR, K Dontay Moch, OLB, Nevada: Moch is an incredible athlete. He reportedly ran a 4.1 40 yard dash. If he even comes close to that at the combine he will rise into the 2nd round of the draft. This is great value at a position of need. He will help improve the Jets anemic pass rush.

31.  Pittsburgh* (12-4) - Team Needs: OT, NT, DE, FS, P, KSione Fua, NT, Notre Dame: The Steelers need to find a NT of the future. Casey likely has two very good years left and then he will nosedive. This year, Fua will either be a PS player or if Hoke is not resigned he will be a 2nd teamer at NT an spell Casey on 2nd and 3rd and long situations. After two years of spelling Casey, he should be ready to continue the Steelers stretch of dominating NT’s.

32.  Green Bay* (10-6) - Team Needs: LG, RB, OT, WR, K Clint Boling, OG, Georgia: As I said earlier, the Packers running game did not struggle because of bad RB’s, it struggled because of a bad OL. Boling will help improve that line.


Round 4

1.      Carolina (2-14) - Team Needs: QB, DT, WR1, RG, RDE, TE,Lawrence Guy, DT, Arizona State: Guy and Casey will be the Panthers DT’s for years to come.

2.      Seattle - from New England via Denver (4-12) - Team Needs: LE, WR1, RG, QB, K Cedric Thorton, DE, Southern Arkansas: A small school sleep er with loads of potential. With a year of developing will be a very good DE.

3.      Buffalo (4-12) - Team Needs: LT, Rush LB, WR, TE, ILB, CB3Bruce Miller, OLB, UCF: The Bills need to improve their pass rush and Miller is a specialist

4.      Cincinnati (4-12) - Team Needs: RB, QB, LG, SS, K, KR Lee Ziemba, OG, Auburn: There are no RB’s here that will give the Bengals what they need so they look to find the answer at LG. Ziemba has great potential to be a very good LG.

5.      Cleveland (5-11) - Team Needs: RT, DE, CB, RG, SS, K Ras I Dowling, CB, Virginia: Whether Dowling plays CB or SS, he will fill a need at either spot.

6.      Arizona (5-11) - Team Needs: QB, Rush LB, RT, CB, FS James Brewer, RT, Indiana:  Brewer is another one of the many tackles that will never be a LT but he looks like a very good RT. Hairston and Brewer will shore up the tackle position for the Cardinals.

7.      Philadelphia - from Washington (6-10) - Team Needs: RT, CB, OLB, SS, DE, - DeMarcus Van Dyke, CB, Louisville: An incredibly fast player that will help the Eagles poor cornerback position.

8.      Houston (6-10) - Team Needs: FS, SS, CB, WR, P, DL DeAndre McDaniel, S, Clemson: The Texans got the pieces for their front 7 in the first 3 rounds and now they get a piece to help their woeful secondary.

9.      Minnesota (6-10) - Team Needs: 2 OLB, S, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT, TE K.J. Wright, OLB, Mississippi State: The Vikings franchised Chad Greenway but I am not convinced that they will get him signed to a long term deal. Either way, they could still use an upgrade at the other OLB position.

10.  Detroit (6-10) - Team Needs: LT, C, SS, RBKristofer O’Dowd, C, USC: The Lions could use an upgrade at center.

11.  San Francisco (6-10) - Team Needs: CB, FS, WR, OT Jaiquawn Jarret, FS, Temple: He is the best secondary player available and will be an upgrade at FS.

12.  Tennessee (6-10) - Team Needs: LG, DE, Weak LB, SS, DT Will Rackley, OG, Leigh: The Titans need to improve at LG and in a year Rackley could be a huge improvement.

13.  Dallas (6-10) - Team Needs: RE, LG, SS, DL, WR1 Mike Blanc, DE, Auburn: The Cowboys need an improvement at RE and even though he needs some developing, Blanc could become a very good defensive end.

14.  Miami (7-9) - Team Needs: FS, TE, LG, WR, CB3, Rush LB, OL Luke Stocker, TE, Tennessee: The Dolphins need an upgrade over Anthony Fasano and Stocker has tons of ability and raw talent.

15.  St. Louis (7-9) - Team Needs: RG, Weak LB, SS, RB, CB, DE Steve Schilling, OG, Michigan: The Rams need an upgrade at RG.

16.  Oakland (8-8) - Team Needs: RT, LG, Strong LB, WR1, TE James Carpenter, OT, Alabama: Carpenter is one of my under the radar prospects who I think will become a very good NFL player.

17.  Jacksonville (8-8) - Team Needs: S, WR, Weak LB, QB, OL  - Austin Pettis, WR, Boise State: The Jaguars could use another WR to help whoever their QB is. Pettis is a very good player who will excel in as a slot WR.

18.  San Francisco - from San Diego (9-7) - Team Needs: CB, WR, OT Jalil Brown, CB, Colorado: Brown is another sleeper of mine that I think will be really good in the NFL.

19.  Tampa Bay (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, LG, Strong LB, RB, C, CB – Andrew Jackson, OG, Fresno State: If they fail to resign Davin Joseph than they will have a huge hole at LG.

20.  New York Giants (10-6) - Team Needs: Strong LB, LG, WR, FS, PRoss Homan, OLB, Ohio State: The Giants are woefully bad at the OLB position.

21.  Kansas City* (10-6) - Team Needs: QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILBAlex Linnenkohl, C, Oregon State: The Chiefs need to improve at tackle and center. Linnenkohl is the best of those 3 positions available.

22.  Indianapolis* (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, WR, SS, RB, QB, PTyler Sash, S, Iowa: The Colts need to improve at SS especially now that they cut the oft injured Bob Sanders.

23.  Philadelphia* (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, OLB, SS, DE, - Darius Morris, OT, Temple: The Eagles need to improve the right side of their offensive line.

24.  Jacksonville - from New Orleans* (11-5) - Team Needs: S, Weak LB, QB, OL  - Pat Devlin, QB, Delaware: The Jaguars need to find a QB to develop behind Garrard for a year before replacing him.

25.  Buffalo - from Seattle* (7-9) - Team Needs: LT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3Dwayne Harris, WR, East Carolina: The Bills could use a replacement for the aging and declining Lee Evans.

26.  Baltimore* (12-4) - Team Needs: ILB, RT, RG  - Kelvin Sheppard, ILB, LSU: The Ravens need an heir-apparent to Ray Lewis.

27.  Atlanta* (13-3) - Team Needs: WR, LT, G, SS, strong LB, Cb3, DE Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky: The more weapons the better for Matt Ryan.

28.  New England* (14-2) – Team Needs are addressed: Ian Williams, NT, Notre Dame: With all their needs addressed they can just take BPA.

29.  New York Jets* (11-5) - Team Needs: CB, ILB, WR, K Shareece Wright, CB, USC: It looks like they are going to let Cro walk so getting another CB is essential in this draft.

30.  Chicago* (11-5) - Team Needs: C, WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Brandon Fusco, C, Slippery Rock: A small school player but the Bears need to fix their offensive line.

31.  Pittsburgh* (12-4) - Team Needs: OT, DE, FS, P, KJeron Johnson, S, Boise State: The Steelers could use an upgrade over Ryan Clark and although he is not an upgrade yet, he will be in 2012 or 2013.

32.  Green Bay* (10-6) - Team Needs: RB, OT, WR, K DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma: Murray is not a great fit in the Packers system but he is a better fit than any of the remaining RB’s.

Round 5

1.                  Carolina (2-14) - - Team Needs: QB, WR1, RG, RDE, TE,D.J. Williams, TE, Arkansas: The Panthers need help at TE. Williams is athletic and is a very good receiver.

2.                  Buffalo (4-12) - - Team Needs: LT, TE, ILB, CB3George Bryan, TE, N.C. State: The Bills could really use a tackle here but the best one left is Derek Newton and he won’t be ready to play in the NFL for at least 3 years.

3.                  Cincinnati (4-12) - - Team Needs: RB, QB, SS, K, KR Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State: Hunter will be a nice 3rd down back and change of pace to Benson.

4.                  Tampa Bay - from Denver (4-12) - - Team Needs: RT, Strong LB, RB, C, CB – Brian Rolle, OLB, Ohio State: The Bucs need to improve their OLB group.

5.                  Arizona (5-11) - - Team Needs: QB, Rush LB, CB, FS Davon House, CB, New Mexico State: The Cardinals could use an upgrade at the nickel position.

6.                  Cleveland (5-11) - - Team Needs: RT, DE, RG, SS, K Cliff Matthews, DE, South Carolina: Switching to a 4-3 without the pieces, the Browns find another piece to their front 7 in Cliff Matthews.

7.                  Houston (6-10) - - Team Needs: FS, CB, WR, P, DL Chris L. Rucker, FS, Michigan State: After the Texans address their 3-4 front 7, they need to spend the rest of their picks on their secondary.

8.                  Minnesota (6-10) - Team Needs: OLB, S, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT, TE Ahmad Black, S, Florida: The Vikings need to improve their secondary.

9.                  Detroit (6-10) - Team Needs: LT, SS, RBJoe Lefeged, SS, Rutgers: The Lions need to find a playing mate for safety Louis Delmas.

10.              San Francisco (6-10) - Team Needs: WR, OT Greg Little, WR, UNC: The Niners could use some depth and more talent at WR.

11.              Tennessee (6-10) - Team Needs: DE, Weak LB, SS, DT Jermale Hines, SS, Ohio State: The Titans need to start grooming a SS to replace Chris Hope.

12.              Dallas (6-10) - Team Needs: LG, SS, DL, WR1 Terrell McClain, DT/DE, South Florida: The Cowboys need to add some depth to the defensive line.

13.              Washington (6-10) - Team Needs: RT, OLB, SS, DE, - Thomas Keiser, OLB, Stanford: Keiser is a talented player that could eventually become a very good starting OLB.

14.              St. Louis (7-9) - Team Needs: Weak LB, SS, RB, CB, DE Jerrard Terrant, SS, Georgia Tech: The Rams need some depth in the secondary and eventually need a better SS.

15.                 Miami (7-9) - Team Needs: FS, LG, WR, CB3, Rush LB, OL Eric Hagg, FS, Nebraska: The ‘fins need to improve at the FS position.

16.                 Jacksonville (8-8) - Team Needs: S, Weak LB, OL  - Derek Newton, OT, Arkansas State: A raw player but with proper development could become a great tackle.

17.              Oakland (8-8) - Team Needs: LG, Strong LB, WR1, TE Justin Boren, OG, ?: The Raiders have quite a few holes on the offensive line and they should try to fill them in this draft.

18.              Philadelphia - from San Diego (9-7) - Team Needs: OLB, SS, DE, - Jonas Mouton, OLB, Michigan: Mouton was the only bright spot on the woeful Michigan defense.

19.              Minnesota - from New York Giants (10-6) - Team Needs: OLB, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT, TE Richard Sherman, CB, Stanford: Sherman had a great year at Stanford and will help improve the Vikings secondary.

20.              Tampa Bay (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, RB, C, CB – Derrick Locke, RB, Kentucky: Locke will be a great change of pace back to Lagarrete Blount.

21.              Indianapolis* (10-6) - Team Needs: RT, WR, RB, QB, PJarriel King, OT, South Carolina: The Colts need to protect their investment.

22.              Philadelphia* (10-6) - Team Needs: SS, DE, - Ryan Winterswyk, DE, Boise State: The Eagles need to add depth at defensive end.

23.              Kansas City* (10-6) - Team Needs: QB, LT, RT, RB, ILBColin McCarthy, ILB, Miami: ILB is not the Chiefs biggest need but McCarthy is too good of a value to pass up on here.

24.              Washington - from New Orleans* (11-5) - Team Needs: RT, SS, DE, - Brandon Bair, DE, ?: The Redskins need to improve their horrible defense.

25.              Seattle* (7-9) – Team Needs: LT, TE, ILB, CB3Mark Herzlich, ILB, Boston College: Herzlich is a warrior who has first round talent. If he keeps working hard he will become a great NFL player.

26.              Seattle - from Baltimore* (12-4) - Team Needs: LT, TE, CB3Chimdi Chekwa, CB, Ohio State: The Seahawks should double dip on corner in the draft because they need to find a better nickel corner.

27.              Atlanta* (13-3) - Team Needs: LT, G, SS, strong LB, Cb3, DE Caleb Schlauderaff, OG, ?: The Falcons need some depth on the offensive line.

28.              New England* (14-2) Vincent Brown, WR, San Diego State: With all their needs addressed, they take the BPA.

29.              Chicago* (11-5) - Team Needs: WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii: Salas has great potential to become a #1 WR in the NFL.

30.              New York Jets* (11-5) - Team Needs: ILB, WR, K Josh Bynes, ILB, Auburn: Great value here and since Harris will only likely be around for one more year they can groom his replacement.

31.              Pittsburgh* (12-4) - Team Needs: OT, DE, P, KAlex Henry, K/P, Nebraska: Henry is a great kicker prospect who will give the Steelers a big improvement over Shuisham.

32.         Green Bay* (10-6) - Team Needs: OT, WR, K Cecil Shorts III, WR, Union College: The Packers need to find a WR in the draft. Whether they take it early or late does not matter. James Jones is a FA and Driver is incredibly old.
