1.1
CB David Cox
The Broncos need to rebuild their aging secondary. Cox may not be the most ready or most talented, but he is the most completed talent at CB.
-
1.2
MLB Freddy Nickols
The 49ers traded a pretty athletic linebacker. The Harbinger brothers love physical freaks. Here is one listed at 6'5" with good speed.
QB / DT
1.3
LE Johnathan Backman
First of 3 top 15 picks. Jaguars ranked 3rd worst in sacks. Pass rush is needed to keep force quarterback to act quick. Backman is a pretty complete player to play the end.
OLB / QB / OL
1.4
CB Wilfred Stannard
Revis's future is unsettle and McKelvin isn't a complete player. Both of them are undersize. You can't pass up on good corners. Wilfred Stannard is the most ready corner in the draft.
OT
1.5
LT Kasey Mcanulty
The Cardinals have a young line, but they still need a future franchise left tackle. Kasey Mcanulty has good strength to go along with his good athleticism and blocking.
DE
1.6
LE Harold Pritts
The Falcons lost John Abraham and Rob Jackson. They can take another end for a 2nd year. Pritts has Mario Williams like skill set and potential.
DT / OLB
1.7
CB Chas Poston
Wilfred Stannard maybe a better choice, but he is gone. Chas Poston may be the most talented corner in the draft. Stop the bomb, pick a fast corner.
OLB / HB
1.8
WR Isaac Choy
They want a speedy receiver with height, pretty much asking for a complete player. Isaac Choy has the starting speed to work into the speedy receiver role.
DT
1.9
ROLB Pavon Demille
They can pick a HB, but they won't. They will love to see what Devin Moore can do. In that case, keep piling the pressure. Pavon Demille is an athletic linebacker with passable strength.
QB / OL / WR
1.10
CB Rey Coyne
Probably is a reach, but height doesn't seem to be an issue in the Saints scheme in the secondary. Coyne has the all work athleticism.
DT / OLB
1.11
DT Rubin Bremner
They let John Henderson walk, another big body will help their run defense. Bremner has the size, power, and athleticism.
OT
1.12
CB Jarred Cabe
Lions had a great year, but Mr. Ratajczak decides to make this his own team. Mathis on his downhill, and trading away Jackson pretty much forces them to pick a corner.
OLB / WR / SS
1.13
HB Dwain Nair
New Cowboys GM has his work cut out with limited time to prepare. They need to get that running game going, big power running back Dwain Nair is definitely a good fit.
DT / OL
1.14
QB James Hartle
They still have Jordan Palmer, but with the Cardinals giving him a big contract, may as well start fresh with a new quarterback. Hartle is the best quarterback in the draft.
OL / WR / S
1.15
DT Reid Lemmon
Moving down all the way from the 2 spot. They are a bit thin on the defensive line after letting Carrick go. A raw project in Lemmon, top notch athleticism with good power.
CB / S
1.16
LOLB Arnulfo Bishop
The Eagles need another lineback, Bishop doesn't have the strength and is a very raw product, but his high end athleticism may worth the gamble.
MLB
1.17
WR Doyle Edgell
The Patriots want to continue where they left off last year. They are loaded with young players, Edgell will give Rodgers another target and a future replacement for Roy Williams.
OG
1.18
ROLB Luis August
The Lions loss Boss Bailey, they can fill that in the draft. August is a towering linebacker with workable athleticism to go along with his good strength.
WR / DT
1.19
DT Marcos Gephart
The Saints traded away Frank Okam, they may look to fill that hole here. Marcos Gephart is huge. He doesn't have that power that you want with his size, but very workable.
OLB
1.20
LOLB Pablo Donelson
The Titans need someone outside. Donelson has the speed and acceleration. His power is less than desire, but his knowledge to the game is good.
S / HB
1.21
DT Ian Ryerson
Their pass rush is there last season, but they need a bigger body inside to fill on running lanes. Ryerson is a ready to play 4-3 defensive tackle.
HB / CB
1.22
LOLB Howard Bowie
They play the 3-4, and they need another interior linebacker. Bowie is basically a complete player although his durability is less than desireable.
OL
1.23
LG Jeffery Hanning
They need someone to play the tackle with Forney leaving and Waters getting up the age. Hanning is ready with his blocking skills. He only needs to work on his strength.
WR
1.24
SS Toby Wendland
Safety is another major area of needs for the Lions. Wendland is not 6'0" tall, but he has the quick first step and the knowledge to make an immediate impact.
WR
1.25
RE Alejandro Marciano
The Bengals need some pass rush. Marciano doesn't have the power, but he will do what you ask for, which is getting to the quarterback as long as he can get around the block.
DT
1.26
HB Eliseo Lemus
It is unsure how much of a factor in agility means to the Buccaneers, but here it is, a pure power back that can one day replace Jacobs.
S
1.27
QB Billy Nicol
A lot of choices here, but the Dolphins need a quarterback. Nicol has the rocket arm and decent knowledge of the game.
WR
1.28
HB Brad Philips
Phillips will be a change of pace back to complement Green-Ellis power game. Although Philips has the speed, his toughness and power that far behind.
OLB
1.29
RE Phil Kubish
A combo end who can play both the 4-3 and 3-4. The Panthers do not have much major need and this may help replacing Peppers down the road.
OC
1.30
LT Raymundo Amick
Power means a lot in Bills offensive line. With their offensive line is aging, they need future prospects. Raymundo Amick is solid all around and knows the game already.
OL / CB
1.31
CB Houston Tramel
The Giants love to pick the out of the radar rookies. Tramel has the speed and acceleration, but his agility is the reason why he is still here, but do not care about that.
OL / OLB
1.32
LE Melvin Tirrell
The Chargers lost Igor Olshansky. They need to fill that spot. Melvin Tirrell is a perfect fit. A very similar player to Clinton McDonald who they picked last year.
QB
