1(65) CB Jamell Fleming – Oklahoma
Defensive backfield is in need of immediate upgrades. Fleming would be a solid choice to start of rd 3.
2(66) OT Matt McCants – UAB
Upgrades are needed all over the Rams offensive line. McCants would be a solid swing tackle, or allow the Rams to slide Jason Smith to Guard.
3(67) S Markelle Martin – Oklahoma St.
Safety is a weak spot for the Viking defense, and Martin is an underrated prospect who could help from day 1.
Browns needs talent and athleticism in their LB corps. David provides both here in round 3.
You would think that Tampa would jump all over the chance to draft someone with speed and playmaking ability for their defense at the top of round 3.
6(70) ILB James Michael-Johnson – Nevada
JMJ can be the heir apparent to to London Fletcher, and adds depth to a solid LB corps.
7(71) C Phillip Blake – Baylor
Blake can be the future at center for Jacksonville since Brad Meester is entering the last year on his contract.
8(72) OLB Ronnell Lewis – Oklahoma
The Bills need to find the pieces to fit their transition to the 4-3. At this point Morrison and Burnett are serviceable, but offer no long term security.
9(73) WR Juron Criner – Arizona
The trade of Brandon Marshall left the Dolphins without a big,strong WR. Criner could fill that void.
10(74)(from Chi via Car.) S Phillip Thomas
Chris Clemons and Reshad Jones are both nothing more than marginal player. Thomas, who’s stock is on the rise, would be a solid choice in the 3rd.
11(75) ILB Mychal Kendricks – Cal
Lack of depth at ILB is a concern in Kansas City. Kendricks would be a solid rotational guy behind Jovan Belcher
12(76) DT Mike Martin – Michigan
Seattle landed DT Jason Jones through FA this March, but adding depth could still be an option in the draft especially if someone as talented as Martin were to fall this far.
13(77) OT Jeff Allen – Illinois
There is now a major hole at OT since the release of Eric Winston.
14(78) RB LaMichael James – Oregon
James gives the Jets more explosivness and a change-of-pace back behind Shonn Greene
15(79) CB Alfonzo Dennard – Nebraska
Quentin Jammer’s best days are behind him, and Marcus Gilchrist might be best suited as a Safety. Dennard’s recent off field troubles cause him to drop, but his talent at this point is worth the risk.
16(80) TE Orsen Charles – Georgia
Now that Mike Martz is gone, the Bears can find a legit TE for Jay Cutler.
17(81) WR AJ Jenkins – Illinois
Cardinals never had a WR emerge across from Larry Fitzgerald. Jenkins would be a great weapon and complimentary receiver for the Cards.
18(82) CB Leonard Johnson – Iowa St.
Cowboys can bring Johnson along slowly as it wouldn’t be surprising if Mike Jenkins was gone after next season.
19(83) C Ben Jones – Georgia
Center is need of immediate upgrade, as Eugene Amano is probably best suited as a Guard.
20(84) S George Iloka – Boise St.
Safety was a need heading into this offseason, now it’s an even bigger one after the release of Chris Crocker.
21(85) DE Cam Johnson – Virgina
John Abraham was re-signed, but he is 34. Not to mention Ray Edwards was a huge disappointment last season.
22(86) CB/S Trumaine Johnson – Montana
The main hold back for the Lions last season was their average secondary. Aside from Louis Delmas, they lacked any true playmakers. Johnson is a big,physical CB that would be a great addition to the Detroit secondary.
23(87) OG Brandon Washington – Miami(FL)
Ramon Foster and Doug Legursky are serviceable, but nothing spectacular. Washington at worst could come in and challenge for a starting job.
24(88) QB Brock Osweiler – Arizona St.
No one knows how long Peyton Manning will play for, might as well take a mid round flier on someone for the future.
25(89) S Antonio Allen – South Carolina
The play of the Safety position was one of the reasons why the Eagles were unsuccesful last season. Allen can provide some competition to allow the best man to start.
26(90) OLB DeMario Davis – Arkansas St.
Saints first pick is a good one, Davis has a chance to earn significant playing time early on.
27(91) DT/DE Derek Wolfe - Cincinnati
Some have Wolfe pegged as a 1st round selection. If the Packers landed him here, it would be a major steal and a great pick citing the need at DE.
28(92) DE/DT Jared Crick – Nebraska
Ravens need depth behing Ngata and McPhee. Crick fits the 3-4 perfectly.
29(93) OLB Jonathan Massaquoi – Troy
Not a huge need, but Massaquoi would provide great depth as an extra pass rusher in the 3-4
30(94) OT Mitchell Schwartz – Cal
Pats seem to be set with Vollmer and Solder, but given Vollmer’s injury history, having a capable backup OT should be considered.
31(95) WR Jarisu Wright – Arkansas
Wright can fill the slot role left by Mario Manningham.
32(95) ILB Audie Cole – North Carolina St.
Depth is needed at LB, and Cole has the skill set to play both inside and outside.
