The Colts number one hole on defense is at Nose Tackle. Josh Chapman is the best Nose Tackle prospect in this class, and he’s well worth a selection here.
AJ Jenkins isn’t an ideal #1 WR, but he’ll compete for the job. He’s one of players on the board with a standing second round grand.
The Vikings mediocre Secondary needs to be improved.
68. The Cleveland Browns (4-12) select:
Mitchell Schwartz | OT | California
Mitchell Schwartz is a little over-rated at this point of the draft process, but if he’s taken here, it’s a solid pick. Schwartz could start from day one at Right Tackle.
The Buccaneers need some help at Corner if Aqib Talib’s legal problems continue to persist. Jayron Hosley shows above average cover skills, even in this deep class, but his tackling ability leaves a lot to be desired.
The Redskins need help at Inside Linebacker. Veteran London Fletcher hasn’t resigned yet, and even if he does, a long-term option has to be found.
The Jaguars would love to add Marvin McNutt. McNutt has the frame of a #1 and the work-ethic and morality that Gene Smith looks for in his draft picks.
The Buffalo Bills can’t be satisfied with their group of Quarterbacks moving forward. Cousins is a great leader and should be a solid back-up for Ryan Fitzpatrick.
73. The Chicago Bears (From CAR – 6-10) select:
Nick Toon | WR | Wisconsin
The Dolphins badly need to add weapons to their new offense. Nick Toon isn’t the dynamic playmaker they want, but he’ll be productive early on.
74. The Miami Dolphins (6-10) select:
Brandon Taylor | S | LSU
The Dolphins cut ties with Jeremiah Bell at Strong Safety, so there is a need there. Brandon Taylor isn’t a great prospect, but he could start right away if the Dolphins need him to.
75. The Kansas City Chiefs (7-9) select:
Alameda Ta’amu | NT | Washington
The Chiefs need a new Nose Tackle; Kelly Gregg was past his prime five years ago. Ta’amu is a solid Nose Tackle prospect, but needs time to get used to a new role.
The Seahawks need one more starting lineman. Osemele is more suited to play on the inside, but the Seahawks would have the option to play him at Right Tackle and slide James Carpenter to the inside instead.
77. The Houston Texans (10-6) select:
James Brown | G/OT | Troy
The Texans don’t have a starter ready at Right Guard and their roster is thin at Tackle as well. James Brown can play either position.
78. The New York Jets (8-8) select:
Bernard Pierce | RB | Temple
The Jets let Shonn Greene attempt to carry the load last year, but he was somewhat disappointing. Bernard Pierce has the frame and measureables to help out a struggling group.
79. The Oakland Raiders (8-8) select:
Used on Terrelle Pryor in the 2011 Supplemental Draft.
80. The San Diego Chargers (8-8) select:
Markelle Martin | S | Oklahoma State
The Chargers aren’t particularly strong at Safety. Adding Markelle Martin to play with Eric Weddle would be a good situation in San Diego.
81. The Chicago Bears (8-8) select:
Brandon Washington | G | Miami (FL)
The Bears’ Offensive Line is really weak. Brandon Washington is a good fit at Guard, but could potentially play Right Tackle as well.
82. The Arizona Cardinals (8-8) select:
Joe Adams | WR | Arkansas
The Cardinals need a secondary option for Larry Fitzgerald. Adams is a dynamic play-maker with the ball in his hands.
83. The Dallas Cowboys (8-8) select:
Mike Martin | DL | Michigan
The Cowboys are thin on their Defensive Line. Mike Martin could play any position on the D-Line for the Cowboy’s unique 3-4 scheme.
84. The Tennessee Titans (9-7) select:
Brandon Boykin | CB | Georgia
The Titans have two young, solid options at Corner. Brandon Boykin is probably a better fit at Nickel, but he offers security and value here.
85. The Cincinnati Bengals (9-7) select:
Marvin Jones | WR | California | 74
The Bengals don’t have a #2 Wide Receiver. Marvin Jones isn’t anything special, but he’ll fill that need.
86. The Atlanta Falcons (10-6) select:
Orson Charles | TE | Georgia
Orson Charles’ stock has been falling, but I think it would be hard for Atlanta to let him slip by here. His off the field issues will be something the Falcons, more than the other teams, are familiar with because of their proximity.
87. The Detroit Lions (10-6) select:
LaMichael James | RB/PR | Oregon
The Lions don’t have a particularly big need at Running Back, but the position is far from sured up. LaMichael James will get some time at Running Back, but his value comes from his ability to return punts; a spot the Lions are publically looking to improve.
88. The Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4) select:
Chase Minnifield | CB | Virginia
The Steelers don’t have anything at Corner outside of Ike Taylor, who is on the downslope of his career. Minnifield is a big, physical Corner that’s not quite as quick as the Steelers would like.
89. The Denver Broncos (8-8) select:
Derek Wolfe | DT | Cincinnati
The Broncos need help at Defensive Tackle. Derek Wolfe is great value at this point of the draft.
90. The Philadelphia Eagles (8-8) select:
Sean Spence | LB | Miami (FL)
The Eagles need a new Sam Linebacker. Sean Spence is more of a Will Linebacker, but the Eagles aren’t particularly strong their, either.
91. The New Orleans Saints (13-3) select:
Mohamed Sanu | WR | Rutgers
The Saints need a Receiver to replace the snaps Robert Meachum got last season. Sanu showed good timed speed at his pro day, but is really more of a possession receiver.
92. The Green Bay Packers (15-1) select:
Bruce Irvin | PRS | West Virginia
The Packers need a third down Pass Rusher. Bruce Irvin won’t be able to produce if he’s forced to take snaps on earlier downs, but should produce a few sacks as a Pass Rush Specialist.
93. The Baltimore Ravens (12-4) select:
Joe Looney | G | Wake Forrest
The Ravens need help at Guard as well as Offensive Tackle. Joe Looney performed really well when he was healthy last season, but struggled immensely when he wasn’t.
94. The San Fransisco 49ers (13-3) select:
Ryan Broyles | WR | Oklahoma
The 49ers signed Randy Moss, but he’s a very short-term option for Jim Harbaugh. Ryan Broyles is a risky prospect with his knee being questionable moving forward, but when healthy, he attacked the ball unlike any Receiver in this class.
95. The New England Patriots (13-3) select:
Ben Jones | C | Georgia
The Patriots resigned Dan Connolly to play Center for them moving forward, but depth is a question.
96. The New York Giants (9-7) select:
Tyrone Crawford | DE | Boise State
The Giants are losing Dave Tollefson, and Tyrone Crawford seems like a natural replacement.
97. The Oakland Raiders (Supplemental) select:
Josh Norman | CB | Coastal Carolina
The Raiders are really weak at Corner. Josh Norman is raw and is unproven against top level competition, but he has a really high ceiling and is the best player on the board.
