23. Kansas City Chiefs – Brandin Cooks WR, Oregon St.
I’ve been mocking Derek Carr here previously and while I think he’s still very much in play, the Chiefs may be in win now mode. If they are, they shouldn’t hesitate to grab a playmaker like Cooks here. He was the fastest receiver at the Combine and would be a nice deep threat option next to the more physical Dwayne Bowe. Factor in last year’s third round TE Travis Kelce and suddenly Alex Smith’s receiving corps looks much better.
24. Cincinnati Bengals – Kony Ealy DE, Mizzou
The Bengals could be losing Michael Johnson in free agency and could be searching for his replacement with this pick. Some have Ealy going much earlier than this, so if he does last till 24, this would be an easy choice for the Bengals.
25. San Diego Chargers - Jason Verrett CB,TCU
The Chargers secondary was historically bad last season and they have to bring in some playaz. Verrett is a solid all around corner who would start immediately.
26. Cleveland Browns (From Colts) – Odell Beckham Jr. WR, LSU
The Browns could go many ways here, guard, corner, running back, are all possibilities. Overall this offense still desperately lacks talent at the skill positions and adding a talented receiver like ODB next to Josh Gordon would greatly benefit whoever is throwing the ball in the Dawg Pound next season.
27. New Orleans Saints – Bradley Roby CB, Ohio St.
Roby is a talented kid but his game tape is a roller coaster of ups and downs. He’s got great size and speed, and with the coaching of Rob Ryan, Roby should be able to reach his very high ceiling.
28. Carolina Panthers – Morgan Moses OT, Virginia
The Panthers just lost Jordan Gross to retirmement leaving a gaping hole on the left side of their offensive line. They’ll look to fill that first and get their pass catcher later.
29. New England Patriots - R’ashede Hageman DT, Gopher Nation
The Pats need help along the defensive line and Hageman is a beast who they can line up whent they go with a four man front, or shoot over to end when they go 3 man. He’s a high energy player who plays with a mean streak, and would be a great value here.
30. San Francisco 49ers – Stephon Tuitt DE, Notre Dame
The 49ers find their replacement for Justin Smith in Tuitt. He didn’t have the senior year he wanted, but still has plenty of potential that can be milked out of him by the 49ers coaching staff.
31. Denver Broncos – Scott Chricton DE, Oregon St.
The Broncos need to improve their pass rush and go with Chricton here. This Beaver is a high effort player whose motor is always humming. He’d fit in nicely in Denver.
32. Seattle Seahawks – Davante Adams WR, Fresno St.
Russell Wilson needs a few more playmakers to throw to. Adams posseses good size and excellent speed. He’d become a quick pal of Wilson’s and would help this offense to get at least one step closer to being as good as their defense.
