11. Minnesota Vikings

Wide Receiver. Louisville. DeVante Parker. 11. player. 60. The Minnesota Vikings go receiver here. With Amari Cooper and Kevin White off the board, the Vikings go with Louisville receiver DeVante Parker. Teaming up Louisville teammates Teddy Bridgewater and DeVante Parker up again will be great for Vikings fans.

12. Cleveland Browns

Malcom Brown. 12. player. 53. The Cleveland Browns were terrible in stopping the run last season. Adding Texas DT Malcom Brown can help Cleveland improve in that category this season. In one of the most physical divisions in all of football.. Defensive Tackle. Texas

13. New Orleans Saints

15. The New Orleans Saints need help on the defensive side of the ball. Shane Ray is the best available defensive player at number 13, and is quite frankly a steal at this pick.. Defensive End. Missouri. Shane Ray. 13. player

14. Miami Dolphins

Offensive Tackle. LSU. La'el Collins. 14. player. 59. The Miami Dolphins would have like to go receiver at this pick, but if the top three are unavailable I see the Dolphins drafting help on the offensive line. La’el Collins can play both tackle and guard for Miami. It wouldn’t surprise me however if the Dolphins trade down.

15. San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco replaces Mike Iupati with Brandon Scherff. The 49ers still would like to be a physical team so bulking up their offensive line will help them here.. Offensive Tackle. Iowa. Brandon Scherff. 15. player. 42

16. Houston Texans

Cornerback. LSU. Jalen Collins. 16. player. 10. Houston’s original target Brandon Scherff goes one pick ahead of them to the 49ers. So Houston decides to help out their secondary here by drafting Jalen Collins.

17. San Diego Chargers

Georgia. Todd Gurley. 17. player. 13. Ryan Mathews can’t stay on the field, and the San Diego Chargers need to get something out of their rushing attack. The Chargers take Todd Gurley who I think is the most complete running back in this year’s draft.. Running Back

18. Kansas City Chiefs

player. 124. The Kansas City Chiefs like the Dolphins would love to take a receiver here, but with the most talented ones gone they will have to change their focus to the defensive side of the ball. With Landon Collins still available the Chiefs take Collins, who is the most talented Safety in the draft.. Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins. 18

19. Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo Bills)

The Cleveland Browns need help protecting their quarterback and creating lanes for their running backs. The Browns will get some help with that by drafting tackle Andrus Peat, who can be a day one starter for Cleveland.. Offensive Tackle. Stanford. Andrus Peat. 19. player. 53

20. Philadelphia Eagles

Melvin Gordon. 20. player. 54. I believe the Philadelphia Eagles will surprise us by selecting a running back here. Melvin Gordon is a very talented running back who has natural instincts. They will now need to replace LeSean McCoy and I think they do that here.. Running Back. Wisconsin

Next: Picks 21-32
