21. Green Bay Packers
Sebastian’s Take: Donald could very well end up being the best player in this class and Packers would salivate to see him drop this far. With tape that would usually constitute a top-5 selection, lack of size is the only thing holding this player back. I recently wrote an article outlining why the Giants should consider him at #12.
22. Philadelphia Eagles
WR, Oregon State
Felix’s Take: The Eagles offense lost plenty of talent this offseason, releasing DeSean Jackson and letting go of the reliable Jason Avant. While the offense is spectacular, there is still a hole to consider with Jeremy Maclin returning from a major knee injury. Enter Cooks. The speedy and talented wide receiver does exceptionally well considering size limitations, playing the ball well and working routes well. He’d be a nice replacement in a similar role to keep the offense running smoothly.
23. Kansas City Chiefs
24. Cincinnati Bengals
Sebastian’s Take: With the loss of Michael Johnson in free agency, the Bengals need to fill that defensive line hole through the draft. Kony Ealy is the best defensive end left at #24. He was a terror for Mizzou throughout the season and will fit great on a Bengals team that seems to be just one piece away from being elite.
25. San Diego Chargers
CB, Virginia Tech
Felix’s Take: The Chargers were the surprise team of the year, doing an excellent job offensively with a resurgent Philip Rivers. Defensively, however, the Chargers were at the bottom of the league, particularly versus the pass. Fuller is a prototype corner with excellent skills, physical and agile enough to contend with the bigger and smaller receivers of the NFL. Fuller is a plug and play.
26. Cleveland Browns (from Indianapolis)
OLB/DE, Ohio State
27. New Orleans Saints
Sebastian’s Take: The Saints already added plenty of talent to their defense this offseason, but they elect to add an undersized cornerback out of TCU with premiere ball skills. He is only 5’9 and 190 pounds, but otherwise has everything you’d want in an NFL corner. His fluid hips and speed make him a great prospect similar to Tyrann Mathieu and Captain Munnerlyn.
28. Carolina Panthers
Felix’s Take: While the Panthers are in desperate need of offensive firepower, their scheme is based on a power running attack that places Cam in ideal passing situations. Even without such a scheme, the Panthers need to protect Cam PERIOD. Morgan Moses is one of the top second-tier tackles with tremendous size and power. Adding Moses will give Carolina a chance to replace the retired Jordan Gross with a mauler that could dominate on every down at the edge.
29. New England Patriots
30. San Francisco 49ers
31. Denver Broncos
Felix’s Take: Commonly, the mocked position here for Denver has been at inside linebacker, often including Shazier. To my knowledge, the Broncos did a good job in free agency to supplement their defense but the apparent need is at the offensive line. In the Super Bowl, Peyton Manning had no time to complete passes and their offense was completely disrupted by Seattle’s defense. Su’a-Filo is a versatile, talented lineman that can be plugged in a variety of positions. He is strong at the point of attack and maintains solid leverage. Peyton will benefit greatly by having a solid blocker to add to their front.
32. Seattle Seahawks
Louis Nix III
