1. New England – Brooks Reed, OLB, Arizona

Patriots will use this pick because no team wants to give up a 1st for the top 2nd round pick.

2. San Francisco trades with Buffalo – Andy Dalton, QB, TCU

Chan Gailey still believes in Fitzpatrick and everyone knows the Bengals love Dalton so 49ers will move up to grab a pure west coast guy.

3. Cincinnati – Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas

Bengals miss out on Dalton so they’ll grab the best pure passer in this draft.

4. Denver – Jarvis Jenkins, DT

Broncos didn’t take Dareus so they still need to plug holes on their new 4-3. Jenkins is a hot name at the top of the 2nd.

5. Cleveland – Da’Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson

McCoy has to wait for his weapon as Bowers is good value here if they can get 4 years out of him.

6. Arizona – Jabaal Sheard, LB, Pitt

Cardinals need more pass rushers and Sheard had a phenomenal career .

7. Tennessee – Marvin Austin, DT, UNC

Titans got their quarterback and a running game, so they’ll work on defense where they still haven’t replaced Haynesworth.

8. Dallas – Aaron Williams, CB/S, Texas

Cowboys need both a CB and S so Williams will get a shot at both.

9. Washington – Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland

The Redskins simply have nothing at WR so Torrey Smith fits here.

10. Houston – Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA

Texans got a 3-4 defensive end and could go NT in Paea or an elite pass rusher in Ayers.

11. Minnesota – Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State

The Vikings will lose the Williams wall for 4 games, so Paea will be a good replacement for a few weeks and has some time to groom.

12. Oakland (from Detroit) Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada

Colin Kaepernick is highly rated by the Raiders and  Buffalo will take him next (if they don’t at 33) so the Raiders will make a move to get a hold of their quarterback.

13. Buffalo (from San Francisco) – Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame

Buffalo has targeted a TE in a couple different drafts, this is the best one they’ve taken.

14. Denver – Branden Harris, CB, Miami

Champ wants to move to safety so they can groom Harris at CB for a year and then make the change next year.

15. St. Louis  – Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky

St. Louis gets a speedy receiver for Bradford to target downfield.

16. Detroit (from Oakland) – Mikel LeShore, RB, Illinois

The Lions could reach a bit for Dowling, but LeShore is a bigger need here, plus they’ll grab a pick later.

17. Washington – Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech

The Redskins find good value here and a local guy in Williams. He’ll fit in Shanahan’s scheme.

18. San Diego – Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami

The Chargers have been fooling with Vincent Jackson and need to be sure they have an options if they really do drive him away.

19. Tampa Bay – Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia

Tampa will be cutting Talib so they need another physical corner here.

20. New York Giants – Rodney Hudson, G/C, Florida State

The Giants improve their interior line with a monster.

21. Indianapolis – Ben Ijalana, G/T, Villanova

Colts continue to protect their investment in Peyton with a RT or Guard prospect

22. Philadelphia – Rahim Moore, S, UCLA

The Eagles secondary is a weakness and Moore is the top safety in this draft.

23. Chicago (from Kansas City) – Titus Young, WR, Boise State

Bears do get to move up here for a WR knowing the Patriots and Ravens are lurking and looking for a WR

24. New England – Edmund Gates, WR, Abilene Christian

Patriots are looking for a stretch the field type of WR and Gates’ name is on the rise.

25. San Diego (from Seattle) – Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois

Chargers need to get an inside linebacker that is sure to be under contract next season. Jump Ravens who are still looking for Ray Lewis’ replacement.

26. Baltimore  – Chris Carter, DE/OLB, Fresno State

The Ravens couldn’t find a pass rusher at the bottom of the 1st, so they’ll snag one in the 2nd

27. Cleveland – Greg Little, WR, UNC

The run on receivers finds Cleveland in the middle. They’ll target a big guy like Little to give McCoy a good option.

28. New England – Allen Bailey, DE, Miami

The Patriots will look for a new five technique player. Bailey fits the bill.

29. Seattle (from San Diego) – Curtis Brown, CB, Texas

Seattle needs help in their secondary with some questionable corners.

30. Kansas City (from Chicago) – Orlando Franklin, G/T, Miami

Chiefs will address some weaknesses on their offensive line and get more physical on the run.

31. Pittsburgh – Mason Foster, LB, Washington

Pittsburgh continues to bolster their linebacker corp without good value on the board for offensive linemen.

32. Green Bay- Dontay Moch, LB, Nevada

The Packers will groom Moch to pair next to Mathews. He’ll have a good mentor and that could be a scary combination down the road.
