Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

17. Pittsburgh Steelers
Keenan Allen
Wide Receiver, Cal

Mike Wallace is a free agent and out of favor. The Steelers continue to morph into an offensive team and pick up a weapon at WR.

18. Dallas Cowboys
Sharrif Floyd
Defensive Tackle, Florida

Switching to a 4-3 means new personnel is needed, and Floyd is a steal in the late first round.

19. New York Giants
Manti Te’o
Linebacker, Notre Dame

Best player available, and the Giants could use another linebacker at this point.

20. Chicago Bears
Tyler Eifert
Tight End, Notre Dame

Trestman adds to his offense, brings in a solid tight end.

21. Cincinnati Bengals
Eddie Lacy
Running back, Alabama

Gotta find a way to take pressure off of Andy Dalton, and Lacy will compliment the Law Firm. 

22. St. Louis Rams (from Washington)
DJ Fluker
Tackle, Alabama

The Rams continue to build up their offense, and hope Sam Bradford takes another step forward.

23. Minnesota Vikings
Jesse Williams
Defensive Tackle, Alabama

The Vikings like DT’s named Williams.

24. Indianapolis Colts
John Jenkins
Defensive Tackle, Georgia

The Colts need to keep building up talent, and bring in a guy who can be the heart of a strong defense.

25. Seattle Seahawks
Datone Jones
Defensive End, UCLA

Uncertainty surrounds the health of Chris Clemons. Jones provides depth and size to add to the defensive end rotation.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Johnathan Hankins
Defensive Tackle, Ohio State

With Roy Miller gone, the Bucs pick up a replacement.

27. Houston Texans
Alec Ogletree
Linebacker, Georgia

The Texans have a good locker room for Ogletree to learn from, and the Texans reap the benefits on the field.

28. Denver Broncos
Xavier Rhodes
Cornerback, Florida State

The Broncos start thinking about life after Champ.

29. New England Patriots
DeAndre Hopkins
Wide Receiver, Clemson

If Wes Welker isn’t coming back, Hopkins becomes a big temptation here.

30. Atlanta Falcons
Alex Okafor
Defensive End, Texas

With John Abraham getting older, the Falcons look to another sturdy defensive end to pick up the slack.

31. San Francisco 49ers
Desmond Trufant
Cornerback, Washington

The Niners add another piece to a potentially epic defense for years to come.

32. Baltimore Ravens
Kevin Minter
Linebacker, LSU

Ray Lewis had his last ride, and the linebacking corps is looking weak as a result.

The Buccaneers trade was the 13th selection to the Packers for the 26th selection, and the Packers 2nd round pick in 2012, plus a 3rd round pick in 2013. I will also write a 7 round mock draft for the Buccaneers, showing how the draft would work out after such a deal. Stay tuned for that article very soon!
