The final part of our round one mock draft featuring picks 21 to 32.
21) Green Bay Packers - Jace Amaro
The Packers need to replace free agent tight end Jermichael Finley and freshen up the receiver options for Rodgers. Jace Amaro would do both.
He is a great route runner and fearless catcher (in 2011 he took a hit whilst catching that
lacerated his spleen) plus he has the frame to add muscle and improve as a blocker. Amaro has got a high ceiling.
22) Philadelphia Eagles - Brandin Cooks
When the Eagles cut Desean Jackson they must have been with at least one eye on the draft. With his speed, receiver Brandin Cooks will stretch defenses vertically. He is the
prototypical Chip Kelly wide receiver.
23) Kansas City Chiefs – Marquise Lee
The Kansas City Chiefs need an impact wide receiver and Marquise Lee who sped to lots of yards in college.
24) Cincinnati Bengals – Kyle Fuller
The Bengals need to invest in the cornerback position. Leon Hall is recovering from his second Achilles tendon tear and Terence Newman is 36.
Kyle Fuller is just the guy the Bengals are looking for. He hits harder than his frame would suggest and reads plays well. People say he lacks elite level speed but he takes the first yard and a half in his head before the other guy even gets going.
25 ) San Diego Chargers – Ra'Shede Hageman
The Chargers need to get some power on the D-line so that they can start to put some inward pressure on the pocket. Ra'Shede Hageman out of Minnesota is a beast in the middle of the line who mixes a 6'6'' 310lb frame with a 4.92 second 40-yard-dash.
Hageman would give the Chargers the injection of powerful they need up top.
26) Cleveland Browns– Xavier Su'a-Filo
The Browns need a top notch offensive guard especially now that they have just spent the fourth overall pick. Xavier Su'a-Filo is the best guard in the draft. He played tackle in college but should shift into the interior of his line as he lacks the required size of an NFL left tackle.
27) New Orleans Saints - Morgan Moses
The Saints need to give franchise quarterback Drew Brees all the protection they can so I see them grabbing tackle Morgan Moses.
28) Carolina Panthers – Kelvin Benjamin
At least Carolina Panthers manager Dave Gettleman isn't trying to spin too much of a line in the build up to the draft after admitting that “It's a heck of a wide receiver draft”.
He did not however go onto to say the next bit which is after cutting Steve Smith we need a new wide receiver and we will address this need in the first round.
6'5'' 240 pound wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin would allow the Panthers to create mismatches all over the pitch. I mean the guy isn't far off being a tight end.
29) New England Patriots – Louis Nix III
The Patriots need to bring some power and strength to the DT position. Louis Nix III will do this as he uses his massive frame to fill up the A gaps.
30) St Louis Rams – Calvin Pyror
After trading down with the 49ers the Rams need to improve at the safety position and Calvin Pyror falls very nicely into their lap.
31) Denver Broncos – Ryan Shazier
The Broncos could do with an outside linebacker who can put some pressure on the QB and contribute in his first season. Super-quick Ryan Shazier could do both these things.
32) Seattle Seahawks - CJ Mosley
The Superbowl champions could do with a DT and a wide receiver but there isn't a first round talent left by the 32nd pick.
Instead the Seahawks can just draft the best player left on the board which for me is CJ Mosley the inside linebacker.
