21. Cincinnati Bengals

Defensive tackles don’t get much bigger than the 6’7″ Armstead. He can eat up offensive lineman and get his hands up to interrupt passing lanes.. Defensive End. Oregon. Arik Armstead. 21. player. 56

22. Pittsburgh Steelers

Cornerback. Washington. Marcus Peters. 22. player. 55. The Steelers MUST upgrade at cornerback this year. They’ve spent too many seasons hoping to see improvement from their crop of corners to keep going with them.

23. Detroit Lions

Pittsburgh. T.J. Clemmings. 23. player. 50. A right tackle is a big need and so is guard. Clemmings should be a good choice to potentiall cover either of those spots on the offensive line.. Offensive Tackle

24. Arizona Cardinals

Kevin Johnson. 24. player. 32. Replacing the exiting Antonio Cromartie will be difficult, but they can attempt to do that by selecting a tough cornerback like Kevin Johnson.. Cornerback. Wake Forest

25. Carolina Panthers

25. player. 87. Carolina needs to give Cam Newton more weapons and partnering Strong with Kelvin Benjamin would be a dangerous combination for the Panthers.. Wide Receiver. Arizona State. Jaelen Strong

26. Baltimore Ravens

Eddie Goldman. 26. player. 26. The Ravens lost Ngata in a trade to the Detroit Lions, but can get another talented defensive lineman in Goldman to take his spot.. Defensive Tackle. Florida State

27. Dallas Cowboys

Running Back. Wisconsin. Melvin Gordon. 27. player. 123. They lost DeMarco Murray to a division rival but shouldn’t worry too much when they get Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon to run behind that beastly offensive line in Dallas.

28. Denver Broncos

player. 45. Denver might not miss Julius Thomas as much as some folks think if they’re able to get Maxx Williams. He’s an excellent pass catcher to help out Peyton Manning.. Tight end. Minnesota. Maxx Williams. 28

29. Indianapolis Colts

Linebacker. UCLA. Eric Kendricks. 29. player. 46. It’s a bit of a reach for an inside linebacker, but the Colts are pretty desperate to upgrade at that position and it’s worth it to fill the need.

30. Green Bay Packers

30. player. 49. Green Bay usually won’t reach on draft day, but I expect that to change with this draft as filling the holes at inside linebacker should be the priority for the team.. Linebacker. Mississippi State. Benardrick McKinney

31. Seattle Seahawks

36. Green-Beckham is a bit of a risk, but Seattle shouldn’t look past his potential as a game changing WR and could be even more dangerous now that the team has Jimmy Graham.. Wide Receiver. Oklahoma. Dorial Green-Beckham. 31. player

32. New England Patriots

player. 47. Guard is a major position of need for the Patriots and Cann is one of the best available that that position as they net the best pure guard in the draft.. Guard. South Carolina. A.J. Cann. 32
