Pick Team Player Selected Player’s Position Player’s School Analysis
17. Everson Griffen
Defensive End
USC
Since the departure of Albert Haynesworth last season in free agency, the Titans defensive line has struggled. Griffen brings athleticism to the Titans defensive line and Jeff Fisher should be rewarded with an improved pass rush by looking to his alma mater for talent.
18. Mike Iupati Guard/Tackle Idaho
Mike Iupati is a powerful lineman and just the kind of blocker that the Steelers. He was looked at as just a guard heading into Senior Bowl week, but with an impressive showing there are talks that he may be able to play offensive tackle as well. No matter the position, Iupati will improve the Steelers’ offensive line.
19. Carlos Dunlap
Defensive End
Florida
Jamaal Anderson has been a bust for Atlanta and the team needs to get pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Dunlap was looked at as a top 5 talent, but some minor character issues and a down year in production allow him to slip in this draft.
20. C.J. Spiller      

Running Back Clemson Running back is a position of need and the Texans add an explosive, multi-talented player to complement their potent offense.
21. Earl Thomas      

Safety Texas The Roy Williams experiment will end this off-season.  Thomas has great cover skills and he will be able to play center field, further solidifying an improved Bengals defense.
22. Jermaine Gresham
Tight End
Oklahoma
Bill Belichick and the Patriots always seem to steal a great player in the draft. Current TE Ben Watson is going to become a free agent in the off-season and, if a guy like Gresham is available, he will likely not return to New England. Gresham was looked at as a top 15 talent in last year’s draft.
23. Perrish Cox Cornerback   Charles Woodson, the reigning MVP, can still bring it, but the Packers are wise to add an aggressive, physical cornerback in Cox.  
24.    Brian Price      

Defensive Tackle
UCLA
Price had a dominant junior season in Westwood, while tackle is not a position of need with Bunkley and Patterson, adding a player of this talent only provides more depth for the Iggles.
25. Brandon Graham Linebacker
Michigan
One of the fastest rising players in the draft after dominating the week long Senior Bowl practices, Graham might not be here for the Ravens, but, if on the board, Ozzie Newsome adds another weapon to this attacking defense.
26. Bruce Campbell
Offensive Tackle Maryland Kurt Warner is likely to retire and that could leave Arizona with an inexperienced quarterback. Campbell has a giant frame, but his lack of experience could force him to slip to the later part of round-one.
27. Taylor Mays  Safety USC The Cowboys have a hole at safety as Ken Hamlin could be an off-season casualty. Mays is a big hitter who has to run fast at the combine to secure his place in Round one. 
28. Jonathan Dwyer Running Back
Georgia Tech
There is more and more speculation that LaDainian Tomlinson will not be returning to the Chargers next season. Dwyer is a powerful runner between the tackles and will be a perfect complement to Darren Sproles.
29.  Golden Tate   

Wide Receiver  Notre Dame  Tate is a versatile WR who will help take attention away from Braylon Edwards.  Mark Sanchez gets a nice weapon who will also contribute on Special Teams.
30. Jared Odrick Defensive Tackle
Penn State
Minnesota needs to start addressing defensive tackle depth especially with Pat Williams getting up their in age. By selecting Jared Odrick, the Vikings get a much needed injection of youth at the tackle position on defense.
31. Brandon Spikes Linebacker Florida Spikes stock has slipped a bit after an injury filled junior year, but he aggressive and a big hitter.  Gary Brackett’s return is no sure thing, Spikes gives the Colts a safety net at the linebacker position.
32. Kyle Wilson
Cornerback
Boise State
Kyle Wilson is another player who has been stealing the show at this years Senior Bowl. The Saints have one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL, but their pass defense struggled down the stretch. Wilson is excellent in coverage and he could help sure up the pass defense.
