17. New Orleans- DE Demontre Moore, Texas A&M

-The Saints are desperate for a pure pass rusher, something that Moore will give them right away. Even if he’s off the board New Orleans should look DE or OLB here to boost their pass rush.

18. Dallas- FS Eric Reid, LSU

-The Cowboys can go a couple different directions here, but it will be tough to pass up a safety like Reid, who has elite potential. The Cowboys fixed their corners this past year, but their safeties are still pretty soft.

19. Tampa Bay- DE Sam Montgomery, LSU

-The Bucs pass rush hasn’t been up to par, and could use a guy like Montgomery to stabilize their unit. Tampa could also look at some secondary help as well.

20. Minnesota- WR DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson

-The Vikings are desperate for play-makers on offense so it’s safe to say that Hopkins could be a good pick for them. He offers a nice size/speed combination for Minnesota.

21. Pittsburgh- NT Jesse Williams, Alabama

-Casey Hampton is about done with his career, and the Steelers could look to find a replacement with this pick. Williams would fit well in the Steelers system, and could really make that line a threat again.

22.Indianapolis- LB Dion Jordan, Oregon

-The Colts should look for a pass rusher with this pick and Jordan is the best still on the board.

23. Seattle- WR Robert Woods, USC

-The Seahawks don’t have many pressing needs, but would probably opt to go with Pete Carroll’s former college receiver with this pick.

24. New York Giants- OL Barrett Jones, Alabama

-New York has a number of offensive line woes, making Jones a nice fit because he can play just about any position along the line.

25. Denver Broncos- DE Alex Okafor, Texas

-The Broncos don’t have many needs, so don’t be surprised if they go best player available. Okafor can rotate in on their strong defensive line and give them some really nice depth.

26. New England- CB Xavier Roades, FSU

-The Patriots secondary is still their weakest link so adding the top corner on the board makes a lot of sense.

27. Chicago- OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan

The Bears have to improve their offensive line, so grabbing a tackle like Lewan would be a steal. This definitely has to be a pick that Jay Cutler will be rooting for.

28.. Green Bay Packers- DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri

-The Packers could use some more depth along the defensive line.

29. San Francisco-OL Jon Cooper, UNC

-The 49ers have few weaknesses, but one of their larger ones is at guard. Cooper could turn a really good line into a great unit.

30. Baltimore- S Abram Elam, Florida

-Ed Reed is probably nearing the end of his career making this a smart pick for Baltimore.

31. Houston- WR Tavon Austin, WVU

Andre Johnson is great, but it is time to give him some help. Austin gives Houston a nice slot receiver who can take advantage of some holes in the defense.

32. Atlanta-TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame

-The Falcons are likely to lose Tony Gonzalez to retirement leaving a big hole in their offense.
