17. Bengals: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama. The Bengals need to find a replacement for Johnathan Joseph, who was missed during the 2011 season.
18. Chargers: Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina. The Chargers defense ranked 28th in yards allowed per attempt this year. Gilmore should help out.
19. Bears: Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina. They need a defensive end to bookend with Julius Peppers, who also played college ball in Chapel Hill.
20. Titans: Nick Perry, DE, USC. If Kirkpatrick or Gilmore are on the board when they pick, I could see them taking one. If not the pass rush needs work.
21. Bengals: Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor. The Bengals hit a home run last year withA.J. Green. Adding Wright would give Cincy a formidable duo.
22. Browns: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford. If they do go with Tannehill, they would be wise to protect their investment with a lineman like Martin.
23. Lions: Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State. He appears to have the tools to be a left tackle in the NFL but his work ethic and character have been questioned.
24. Steelers: Cordy Glenn, OT/G, Georgia. The Steelers need both a right tackle and a guard. This mountainous man can play one of those positions.
25. Broncos: Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State. They were unable to take care of their defensive line in free agency, so taking Worthy makes sense.
26. Texans: Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech. It will be interesting to see if interest in Hill meets all the media hype after his strong combine showing.
27. Patriots: Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama. The Patriots need to boost their pass rush if they are going to play wide receivers at cornerback.
28. Packers: Shea Mcclellin, DE/OLB, Boise State. There is chatter that he could climb into the first round. He would fit well in the Packers defense.
29. Ravens: Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin. I’m sticking with Konz here. He was in for a visit, and he makes a heck of a lot of sense on paper for the Ravens.
30. 49ers: Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama. Character concerns could push him out of the first round, but the 49ers aren’t afraid to take some risks.
31. Patriots: David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech. The Patriots love to throw the ball, but Wilson is a well-rounded back who can block and catch, too.
32. Giants: Dont’a Hightower, ILB, Alabama. Even after trading for Keith Rivers, the reigning Super Bowl champs need reinforcements at linebacker.
