21. Cincinnati Bengals
A great draft for the Bengals, as they get good young players at their two biggest positions of need. Glenn is a massive athlete with a nasty, aggressive style of play.
Wright will be an interesting guy to watch during the Draft because he could go anywhere from #10 (Buffalo) to the second round. I’ll say he lands here with the receiver-starved Browns.
23. Detroit Lions
CB, North Alabama
The Lions lost Eric Wright to free agency and their blowout playoff loss to the Saints highlighted their weakness in the secondary. Jenkins is a character risk, but I think he’ll toe the line in the NFL.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers
OT, Ohio State
It’s amazing how successful the Steelers have been in recent years despite pretty bad offensive line play. Adams has more than enough talent to land here at #24. He’s a bit soft though, and that might scare Pittsburgh off.
25. Denver Broncos
The Broncos will be real tempted to take TE Coby Fleener here and give Peyton Manning another weapon, but this team really needs help on the interior defensive line. Brockers would be a godsend to them if he fell this far.
26. Houston Texans
Another steal if he falls this far. Hightower is a great fit for a 3-4 system. Houston needs a WR badly, but they can probably find help in the second round there.
The Patriots have a terrible habit of taking players I like. As a Syracuse fan, this pick would qualify for me. He also makes a lot of sense for this pass-rush starved team.
28. Green Bay Packers
The Packers need a center after Scott Wells left for St. Louis in free agency. Their home state university has a first-round quality center available in Konz. Could this make any more sense?
29. Baltimore Ravens
S, Notre Dame
The Ravens will go in hoping Mark Barron falls to them at #29. If not, they could do worse than Smith.
30. San Francisco 49ers
WR, Georgia Tech
I had a very tough time deciding this pick. The 49ers don’t have a ton of real glaring needs, and they addressed WR in free agency with Randy Moss and Mario Manningham. But this offense needs all the help it can get, and they’ll take a risk on the super-raw but insanely talented Hill.
31. New England Patriots
Perry is a another guy I like a lot…which naturally means the Pats will snap him up. He could fill a lot of roles in the NFL, which is why the Pats would like him. But the Pats are the Pats so they’ll probably trade either this pick or the #27 – or maybe both.
32. New York Giants
I personally think Fleener should and probably will go a lot higher. If he’s here the Giants don’t pull the trigger, they are idiots.
