21. Cincinnati Bengals – Manti T’eo, Linebacker, Notre Dame
T’eo’s character stock took a nose dive with all of this fake girlfriend business but the Bengals have the likes of Ochocinco and Terrell Owens. They are used to drama so I see the Bengals picking up the former top ten pick.
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. 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.
27. 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
28. Denver Broncos Desmond Trufant, Cornerback, Washington
The Broncos have the need to refresh their defensive backfield, get some younger players in the system while they still have Champ Bailey to mentor to them and be able to show a good example. For the Broncos, this is a great pick.
29. 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.
30. 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.
31. San Francisco 49ers – Jonathan Cyprien, Safety, Florida International
The buzz surrounding Cyprien was how he wowed scouts at the Senior Bowl, from his work ethic during his practices to his relentless and aggressive play during the game. Cyprien has raised the bar and has gotten some people excited including the 49ers.
32. Baltimore Ravens – John Jenkins, Nose Tackle, Georgia
An excellent run stopper, the Ravens will like his skill set. He has tremendous size at 6 ft 3 in and 351 lbs. The Ravens will continue to add to their defense to defend their Super Bowl title.
