16. St. Louis Rams– Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee

Seems like their offense is kind of popgun. They could use some receiver help.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers – Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame

He can go to Pittsburgh and find himself a real girlfriend.

18. Dallas Cowboys – D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama

Those Alabama guys are monsters.

19. New York Giants – Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame

Isn’t much help for them with their offensive line and linebacker woes. So take a good offensive weapon and help out Eli.

20. Chicago BearsJonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina

No more Mike Tice. Still big offensive line issues.

21. Cincinnati BengalsDion Jordan, DE, Oregon

As long as the AFC continues to wallow in mediocrity, the Bengals will have a chance to contend.

22. St. Louis Rams (From Redskins) – Alec Ogletree, OLB, Georgia

They already have a pretty nice defense. Might as well beef it up.

23. Minnesota VikingsKawann Short, DT, Purdue

I know they need a receiver but it would be hard to pass up this true pass rushing beast of a defensive tackle.

24. Indianapolis ColtsJesse Williams, DT, Alabama

Lots of D-line talent in this draft.

25. Seattle Seahawks – Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri

The defensive tackle parade continues. Everyone wants D-line.

26. Green Bay Packers – Barrett Jones, C, Alabama

Packers always seem to need O-line.

27. Houston Texans – Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia

Would make a nice complement to their other offensive weapons.

28. Denver Broncos – Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida

Jack Del Rio’s defense gets some beef in the middle.

29. New England Patriots – Johnathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia

Maybe they should draft some class for Tom Brady. Nice kick slide, Tom.

30. Atlanta Falcons – Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU

Clearly need more help on the D-line.

31. Baltimore Ravens – Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina

Something tells me this guy will be a combine beast. Might shoot up the board.

32. San Francisco 49ers – Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas

Their secondary got exposed a little by Atlanta. Not that it mattered in the end.

    A DT in the first means a few things. First, we must have signed a WR in Free agency and/or resigned percy harvin. I personally think theres no way harvin leaves. My favorite scenario involves resigning him, signing wallace, bowe, jennings, or welker. Then draft a DT as you predicted and take a WR in the 2nd

    @Alex that’s unlikely to happen. Spielman doesn’t target big name free agents. He targets high upside second tier players. I fully expect them to go BPA. In most mocks I’ve seen, its either Keenan Allen or Jonathan Hankins in the first. Personally, I’d rather see Hankins selected because IMO there isn’t a single first round receiver in this draft. I’d wait til the second and select somebody like Robert Woods or DeAndre Hopkins. Also, the kid out of Texas A&M looks like the real deal as a shifty Wes Welker type of receiver in the later rounds. Would also be a great addition to the Vikes even though he’s under 6′.

  • Richard Krueger

    It’s doubtful that the Rams wouldn’t draft at least one offensive lineman in the first round.
