Chargers 18. CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama (JR) The talent is there he just has to fine-tune his technique.
At 6' 3" 192 pounds he has unlimited potential in the NFL. Very good in run support.
Bears 19. DT Michael Brockers, LSU (Soph) Young, massively talented defensive tackle. Nice size at (6' 6" 306 lbs).
The Bears need a better defensive line and Brockers will gave them that from day one. Redshirt sophomore that declared for the 2012 NFL Draft. Brockers is an example of a very talented crop of underclassmen for the 2012 NFL Draft.
Titans 20. CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina Very quick with nice size (6' 0" 192 lbs). Ran a nice 4.40 at the combine.
CB Cortland Finnegan was lost in free agency and they don't have much talent at corner after Jason McCourty and Alterran Verner. He (Verner) is best suited to come in on passing downs as the 3rd corner.
Bengals 21. OG Cody Glenn, Georgia A massive offensive lineman (6' 5" 345 pounds) with excellent feet and power.
Glenn had an amazing performance at the combine running an impressive 5.15 second forty. He (Glenn) played mostly tackle in college, but in the NFL he will likely play guard. He is very experienced and versatile.
Browns 22. QB Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State (From Atlanta) QB Colt McCoy doesn't have NFL size or arm strength.
Weeden is a far better value at 22 than Tannehill would be at 4. He (Weeden) was a 2nd round pick (pitcher) of the of the New York Yankees in 2002, so he has an arm. Only downside is he will be a 29 year old as a rookie, so he will need to start right away.
Lions 23. CB Janoris Jenkins, Florida, North Alabama A quick, ball hawk with decent size (5' 10" 193 lbs).
Free agent CB Eric Wright signed a lucrative 5 year contract with Tampa so depth is a concern at corner. Jenkins was suspended from Florida for getting arrested and transferred to Division II North Alabama. He has NFL talent but will character cause him to fall? He's way to talented to fall too far. Ran a very impressive 4.46 forty at the Combine.
Steelers 24. ILB Dont'a Hightower, Alabama Very powerful quick twitch athlete. Good size at 6' 2" 265 lbs.
With Hines Ward's retirement, receiver is also an option, but ILB James Farrior was let go in the off-season, so the Steelers need another inside backer. Hightower has the size that the Steelers like.
Broncos 25. DT Jerel Worthy, Michigan State (JR) A very solid run stopper capable of taking on double teams.
Defensive tackle is a huge need. Free agent signee Ty Warren just hasn't been able to stay healthy.
Texans 26. WR Kendall Wright, Baylor Plays fast and runs great routes. Wright will catch anything thrown his way.
The Texans don't have much depth at receiver after Andre Johnson and Jacoby Jones and Johnson has had trouble staying healthy the last two seasons where he has missed 12 games.
Patriots 27. OLB Shea McClellin, Boise State (From New Orleans) Nice sized ((6' 3" 259 lbs) and very talented. Always around the football.
McClellin is a real football player, last season he recorded 50 tackles, 7 sacks, 12.5 TFLs (tackles for loss), 2 pass break ups, a forced fumble and a blocked kick.
Packers 28. DE Chandler Jones, Syracuse At 6' 5" 265 pounds he might be able to play end or outside linebacker.
The Pack need help at outside linebacker and defensive end and Jones has the athletic ability to play outside linebacker in a 34 defense or if he bulked up a little, could also play end. The Packers need a better pass rush and current starting OLB Frank Zombo isn't getting it done.
Ravens 29. (JR) C Peter Konz, Wisconsin One of the best centers to come out of the draft in years.
A good value here, Konz (6' 5" 315 lbs), is tough and very smart. He can start and make all the line calls as a rookie.
49ers 30. WR Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech Huge at 6' 4" 215 pounds; blazing fast: Ran a 4.36 at the Combine.
Yes the 49ers added Randy Moss and Mario Manningham, but the aging Moss will likely be just a one year deal. They need some more offensive firepower. Hill is an amazing athlete for his size, he had the best broad jump at the combine with a jump of 11' 1".
Patriots 31. S Harrison Smith, Notre Dame A physical specimen that is very strong and athletic.
The Pats need help at safety. One of the fastest risers after the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine where he ran an impressive 4.57 forty. He also had the quickest 3-cone time of all the safeties with a time of 6.63 seconds.
Giants 32. TE Coby Fleener, Stanford Looks fast on film and has decent size (6' 5" 248 lbs). Not the best blocker however.
Fleener reminds a lot of draftniks of New England TE Rob Gronkowski. Fleener has the speed to stretch a defense and has superb hands.
