21. Cincinnati Bengals

Linebacker. Clemson. Vic Beasley. 21. player. 56. Beasley had a great Scouting Combine, and showed everyone that at only 6-2 and 235 that his size would not be an issue. He could provide a pass rush in the 4-3 scheme run by the Bengals, and help improve a pass rush that ranked 27th in the league last year. Beasley excelled in his last two years at Clemson, amassing 44.5 tackles for a loss to go along with 25 sacks. He is ranked by most experts as the best pure linebacker in this draft.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers

player. 55. Most people have Collins going to Philadelphia, but this Junior out of Alabama is field tested in the SEC, and for my money fits better in the Steel City. At 6 foot, 222 pounds, Collins excels playing against the run, but can be a playmaker with the ball in the air. He had 190 tackles while playing in Tuscaloosa, with five picks for 103 yards. After three years playing for Nick Saben, he will be ready for the Football-only mentality in Pittsburgh.. Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins. 22

23. Detroit Lions

23. player. 50. The Lions will probably re-sign Ndamakong Suh, before free agency is over, but they also stand a chance of losing some traction on the Defensive line. That’s a problem while playing in the frozen North against teams that play smash-mouth football. Brown is the best Defensive lineman on the board, behind USC’s Leonard Williams, and Washington’s Danny Shelton. Those two will be long gone by the time the Lions pick at 23, so the Junior out Austin will make a good fit. He had two great years in Texas and amassed a total of 146 tackles, 24 for losses, and 7.5 sacks.. Defensive Tackle. Texas. Malcom Brown

24. Arizona Cardinals

Miami (Fla.). Denzel Perryman. 24. player. 32. In a year that is dominated with good defensive players, they are becoming scarce this late in the first round, but the Cardinals need an Inside Linebacker, and the 6 foot 242 pounder out of the “U” is still on the board. Perryman has excellent recognition skills, very savvy at the point of attack, and is a big hitter. A four-year Senior, he had 351 tackles, and 5.5 sacks. Proof that he keeps his head in the game, Perryman also had two picks. Denzle is the best ILB in the draft.. Linebacker

25. Carolina Panthers

87. The Panthers need to pack in some big guys on the Offensive Line in attempt to keep Quarterback, Cam Newton in the pocket. At 6-6, 315 pounds, Clemmings is a wide-body, but with limited playing time at Pittsburgh, he will be a project. With that being said, he is still considered the best Tackle on the board, behind Brandon Scherff, if coached up, could be a nice option going forward.. Offensive Tackle. Pittsburgh. T.J. Clemmings. 25. player

26. Baltimore Ravens

With questions starting to come up about Steve Smith Sr.’s longevity, the Ravens probably should look for some help on the outside. The Ravens probably don’t need a Tight End this early in the draft, but the 2015 class isn’t abundant with them, so this would be an opportunity to get a good one. The youngster out of Minnesota would give Joe Flacco a short option now, and they could take a chance further down the board to fill their wide-out situtation. Williams had 61 receptions in college for 986 yards, and his more impressive stat is 16.2 yard after the catch. He found the end-zone thirteen times.. Tight end. Minnesota. Maxx Williams. 26. player. 26

27. Dallas Cowboys

Melvin Gordon. 27. player. 123. Let’ face it, if Dallas can’t get wide-out, Dez Bryant signed, and need to use the franchise tag on him, they face the possibility of losing DeMarco Murray in free agency. We all saw last year that the running game is the key to Tony Romo’s success, so lets get to the business of keeping him happy. With injury questions surrounding Todd Gurley, why not a add a kid from Wisconsin, where they are used to pounding the ball on the ground. The Junior Badger is reliable, playing 41 games, with 611 carries for 4817 yards, and 44 touchdowns. He has good hands as well, catching 22 passes for 228 yards, and 4 touchdowns. He is the kind of workhorse the Cowboys need.. Running Back. Wisconsin

28. Denver Broncos

45. Providing Payton Manning decides to play for one more year, and he returns to Denver, you can’t get enough big people to help protect him. Collins is a little weak at pass protection, but is an excellent run-blocker. With the Broncos migrating more to the running game, ala the Cowboys, anyway, to take pressure of of their aging QB, this former Tiger could buy some time in the mile-high city while he learns to pass block.. Offensive Tackle. LSU. La'El Collins. 28. player

29. Indianapolis Colts

Dorial Green-Beckham. 29. player. 46. The Colts probably should try to bolster a weak pass-russ with this pick, but with a receiver like Green-Beckham falling this far, I don’t see how they can pass on another target for Andrew Luck. Green-Beckham sat out the 2014 season in Mizzou, but is probably the most naturally talented receiver in the draft. He’s a prototypical NFL receiver at 6-6, 225 who can run the 40 at a 4.50 clip. In two seasons at Missouri, was at 87 catches for 1278 yards and 17 TD’s. More impressivly, was the 14.7 yac.. Wide Receiver. Oklahoma

30. Green Bay Packers

Georgia. Todd Gurley. 30. player. 49. The Pack could really use a Tight End with this pick, but the only one worthy of a first round pick is already a Baltimore Raven, so why not get a toy for Aaron Rodgers to hand the ball off to? The Georgia RB wasn’t able to display his wares at the Combine, but the Packers could take a chance here if there are no more physical issues. Gurley had a good career at Georgia, and can either carry the ball, or be an option in the passing game. His run from scrimmage numbers were nice, but what caught my eye was the 65 receptions for 615 yards, and five TD’s.. Running Back

31. Seattle Seahawks

Arizona State. Jaelen Strong. 31. player. 36. Even though the Seahawks were one play away from a Super Bowl win, they have a couple of issues. The biggest, is the status of Marshawn Lynch, but the other is the need for a deep threat. The former Sun Devil spent two years in a JUCO program, but was very productive in his final two years in Arizona. He’s big, at 6-3, 215, and runs well after the catch. In only 26 games, he totaled up 157 receptions for 2287 yards, and 17 touchdowns.. Wide Receiver

32. New England Patriots

47. What could you possibly need after winning the Super Bowl, but they let you pick anyway. My co-workers at the Musket Fire are saying the Pats could use another Offensive Lineman, and the former Seminole impressed the scouts enough at the Combine to move up to the 32nd spot on the big board. He started 28 games in Tallahassee over the past two years, but missed 2010 for a back injury. Erving is listed as a center, but has played all positions on the OL. I’m sure Bill Belichick, and his staff can find a place for him in Foxboro.  . Center. Florida State. Cameron Erving. 32. player
