Willy’s Mock Draft – 1/27: Round 1 (1-16), Round 1 (17-32), Round 2, Round 3, Round 4

17. Cincinnati Bengals (via Oakland)- CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama:

The Bengals have got to be looking for a corner early in this draft, and if Kirkpatrick falls they shouldn’t hesitate to nab him.

18. San Diego Chargers- WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame:

The Chargers could do a lot worse than have a (Michael) Floyd & (Malcolm) Floyd receiver corps. With Vincent Jackson likely to leave via free agency a major void would be left in the receiving corps. Floyd could fill that void and keep their offense running at full steam.

19. Chicago Bears- DT Devon Still, Penn State:

The Bears might be losing Okoye to free agency, and could use a real top level DT to play alongside Julius Peppers. A three man DT rotation of Still, Stephan Paea and Henry Melton could be pretty devastating.

20. Tennessee Titans- SS Mark Barron, Alabama:

The Titans could be losing both of their starting safties, so replacing them would be a top priority. Barron is the top safety in this class and would be a great addition here for the Titans.

21. Cincinnati Bengals- RB Lamar Miller, Miami:

-Cedric Benson has been okay for the Bengals the last couple of years, but the team can do a lot better. Miller has big play ability and could add a nice element to Cincy’s offense.

22. Cleveland Browns (via Atlanta)- WR Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina:

-If they land their QB in Griffin, their next target will probably to land a top receiver for him.

23. Detroit Lions- C Peter Konz, Wisconsin:

The Lions have some serious offensive line questions plaguing them this offseason and Konz would answer one of them.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers- G/T Cordy Glenn, Georgia:

-Glenn has looked impressive during the Senior Bowl coverage, and would be a nice addition to a Steelers line that looks to be a mess right now.

25. Denver Broncos- DT Brandon Thompson, Clemson:

-The Broncos could look at some other areas, but I think grabbing one of the top DT’s would be key for them.

26. Houston Texans- WR Mohamed Sanu, Rutgers:

The Texans need a receiver to complement Andre Johnson, and Sanu would be a nice fit for them. Adding a receiver like Sanu could be huge for this offense and really make them into a balanced attack that is basically impossible to stop.

27. New England Patriots (via New Orleans)- CB Janoris Jenkins, North Alabama:

-Another year, another young CB, unfortunately that is what the Patriots have to do as their secondary is a serious mess right now. Jenkins has some off the field concerns, but that shouldn’t keep N.E. from looking at him.

28. Green Bay Packers: OLB Nick Perry, USC:

The Packers have to come away from this draft with a pass rusher, and Perry is the top guy here.

29. Baltimore Ravens- ILB Vontaze Burfict, Arizona State:

The Ravens can fill McClain’s spot here, and have the heir apparent to Lewis.

30. San Francisco 49ers- G Brandon Washington, Miami:

The 49ers O-line should be bolstered this offseason and Washington is moving up draft boards.

31. New York Giants- LB Don’ta Hightower, Alabama:

The Giants linebacking situation is a bit of an issue. Adding Hightower would be huge and give them an impact guy in that unit.

32. New England Patriots: DT Jerel Worthy, Michigan State:

-The Pats interior line is a bit soft after Vince Wilfork, so adding a complementary piece is key.
