 21. Cincinnati Bengals – Eddie Lacy, Running Back, Alabama

The Bengals need a complimentary back for BenJarvus Green-Ellis.  Days of the one running back carrying the load are gone, so enter Lacy.  If Eddie Lacy enters the NFL Draft this spring, he will flourish with his explosive speed and ability to cut back on a dime.

22.  St. Louis Rams (From Redskins) – Eric Reid, Safety, LSU

The Rams will already have addressed the offense, now they tackle the defensive side of the ball.  In the pick from Washington in the RG3 trade, the Rams pickup Reid from LSU who will help the most when it comes to zone coverages. 

23. Minnesota Vikings –  Justin Hunter, Wide Receiver, Tennessee

A gifted athlete, Hunter could go higher than this but because of team needs; he will slip all the way down to #23 and become a Viking to complement Percy Harvin.

24. Indianapolis Colts – Jonathan Hankins, Defensive Tackle, Ohio State

At 6-4, 322 this kid can shed some blocks and wreak havoc in offensive backfields.  Hankins will be a part of the 4-3 to 3-4 conversion as Indy changes defensive schemes.

25. Seattle Seahawks – Cordarelle Patterson, Wide Receiver, Tennessee

Playing solid defense and having a dual threat quarterback as well as a very good running back; the Seahawks lack a good, top-flight receiver.  Patterson may not be the best route runner but his yards after the catch has been higher than most.  This will be a good pick for Seattle to bolster their already lethal offense.

26. Baltimore Ravens – Jonathan Cooper, Center, North Carolina

Cooper is a good sized center that can adjust to the more complicated schemes in the NFL, he will be a great pick for the Ravens who are in need of a good center.

27. Green Bay Packers– Givoanni Bernard, Running Back, North Carolina 

Bernard would be a great fit in Green Bay.  The Packers need a complimentary back to carry their offense as Cedric Benson was not the answer.  Bernard probably could go higher; even to the Cardinals but if not he could be sporting Packer green and yellow.

28. Houston Texans – Terrence Williams, Wide Receiver, Baylor

Never the main receiver in college, Williams would complement Andre Johnson perfectly and give Matt Schaub another target to throw to help get the Texans a step closer to winning them a Super Bowl.

29. San Francisco 49ers – John Jenkins, Nose Tackle, Georgia

An excellent run stopper, the 49ers continue to add to their defense as Jenkins would make a great fit in Jim Harbaughs’ system.

30. New England Patriots – Matt Elam, Strong Safety, Florida

Bill Belicheck likes a jack-of-all-trade’s kind of player and Elam can do just about do it all.  What he lacks in size and speed, he makes up in overall ability. 

31. Atlanta Falcons – Zack Ertz, Tight End, Stanford

The heir apparent to Tony Gonzales, Ertz is an excellent pass receiver but will need some time on the block sleds to refine his skills as a blocker.

32. Denver Broncos – Sharrif Floyd, Defensive Tackle, Florida

Floyd has adequate size and quickness but he is a project player.  Lacking in the strength department, don’t expect Floyd to be playing right away but he is a good enough athlete to be drafted towards the end of the 1st round or early 2nd round.
