21. Cincinnati Bengals
Cordy Glenn – OL, Georgia
My Analysis: The Bengals let Nate Livings walk in FA. This is a sign they plan to address the OG position in the draft.


22. Cleveland Browns (from Atlanta)

December 31, 2011; Houston, TX, USA; Texas A

Ryan Tannehill – QB, Texas A&M
My Analysis: The Browns missed out on the RGIII lottery so this is a logical pick for them.


23. Detroit Lions
Janoris Jenkins – CB,  Florida
My Analysis: The Lions have one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL. Suring up the secondary will be the next step in solidifying the defense.


24. Pittsburgh Steelers
Kendall Wright – WR, Baylor
My Analysis: The Steelers need another weapon with Hines Wards departure. Another option here would be an offensive lineman. Big Ben was one of the most sacked QB’s in the league.


25. Denver Broncos
Devon Still – DT, Penn State
My Analysis: The Denver Broncos have been pretty consistent on offense. The signing of Peyton Manning makes it pretty clear that they will beef up their pass rush.


26. Houston Texans
Rueben Randle – WR, Louisiana State
My Analysis: The Texans are set on defense,  the OL is solid and the RB position is sown up, so it makes sense to bring in an offensive weapon at WR.


27. New England Patriots (from New Orleans)
Nick Perry – DE,  Southern California
My Analysis: The Patriots defense ranked at the bottom of the league so suring up the front 7 makes sense here.


28. Green Bay Packers

Dontari Poe – DT, Memphis
My Analysis: The loss of Cullen Jenkins in FA last year showed in a bad way this year. GB is better than most at developing project players so this is a good fit for them.


29. Baltimore Ravens
Peter Konz – C, Wisconsin
My Analysis: The Ravens lost Grubbs in FA and they struggled at the C position as well. I look for them to take the C here or the best available OG.


30. San Francisco 49ers
Alfonzo Dennard – CB, Nebraska
My Analysis: The 49ers had a solid defense last yr but with Rogers on the back side of 30 they need some depth at the CB position.


31. New England Patriots
Zach Brown – LB, North Carolina
My Analysis: Bill Belicheck  is known for taking the best available player at the bottom of the 1st and you can never have enough depth at the LB position.


32. New York Giants
Kelechi Osemele – OG, Iowa State
My Analysis: The Giants have one of the best defenses in the league and plenty of weapons for Eli. It makes sense to beef up the Ol to aid in the running game.
