There are character concerns with him, but Mike Shanahan takes guys like that.
5. Kansas City Chiefs- Oklahoma State OT Russell Okung
G.M. Scott Pioli has to protect his investment in QB Matt Cassel.6. Seattle Seahawks- Tennessee S Eric Berry *
The Seahawks pass defense was bad last year. Bruce Campbell is an option here.
7. Cleveland Browns- Florida CB Joe Haden *
The Browns need a revamped secondary. Haden is good value here. 8. Oakland Raiders- Maryland OT Bruce Campbell *
Al Davis loves athletic freaks for their positions, Campbell is that.
9. Buffalo Bills- Rutgers OT Anthony Davis *
The Bills made a big mistake passing on Michael Oher last year.
10. Jacksonville Jaguars- South Florida DE Jason Pierre-Paul *
JPP is a hot prospect, but he has bust potential. They hope to get Tim Tebow later.
11. Denver Broncos (from Chicago)- Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant *
Bryant is the top receiver in the draft and could replace Brandon Marshall.12. Miami Dolphins- Alabama LB Rolando McClain *
Bill Parcells loves to draft linebackers in the first-round.13. San Francisco 49ers- S Earl Thomas *
The 49ers figure they can get a tackle with their second pick.
14. Seattle Seahawks (from Denver)- Iowa OT Bryan Bulaga *
Bulaga fits their zone-blocking scheme and fills a big need at LT.
15. New York Giants- UCLA DT Brian Price*
They won the Super Bowl due to pass rush. Price gets them an interior rusher.
16. Tennessee Titans- Georgia Tech DE Derrick Morgan *
The Titans were hurting for a pass rush last season. Morgan is great value here.
17. San Francisco 49ers (from Carolina)- Oklahoma OT Trent Williams
He excelled at right tackle and that is a critical need for the 49ers.
18. Pittsburgh Steelers- Clemson RB C.J. Spiller
A surprise pick, but Willie Parker is one his way out. 19. Atlanta Falcons- Missouri LB Sean Weatherspoon
Mike Peterson is 34. Curtis Lofton needs help. Corner and safety are options.
20. Houston Texans- Boise State CB Kyle Wilson
The Texans could lose Dunta Robinson and need help in the secondary. 21. Green Bay Packers- Iowa OG Mike Iupati
The Packers need help along the line. Iupati could start right away for them.22. Cincinnati Bengals- Oklahoma TE Jermaine Gresham *
Like Bradford, an injury isn't enough to keep him out of round one.
23. New England Patriots- Florida TE Aaron Hernandez *
Ben Watson is probably a goner. Hernandez is another weapon for Brady.
24. Philadelphia Eagles- Michigan DE Brandon Graham
The Eagles need a pass rusher opposite Trent Cole. Graham is a steal.
25. Baltimore Ravens- Notre Dame WR Golden Tate *
The Ravens badly need to find some receivers for Joe Flacco.26. Arizona Cardinals- USC DE Everson Griffen *
The Cardinals could use an improved pass rush, Griffen is the best available. 27. Dallas Cowboys- USC S Taylor Mays
Great tools and upside, but he needs work. Jerry Jones likes big time athletes.28. San Diego Chargers- Alabama DT Terrence Cody
The Chargers need a young nose tackle. Cody is a good fit. 29. New York Jets- Texas OLB Sergio Kindle
He would be a good fit as a 3-4 pass rusher in Rex Ryan's scheme.
30. Minnesota Vikings- Oklahoma State CB Perrish Cox
Cornerback became a big need when Cedric Griffin tore an ACL in the playoffs.31. Indianapolis Colts- Penn State DT Jared Odrick
He fits multiple schemes, and is the athletic type the Colts look for at DT.
32. New Orleans Saints- Florida DE Carlos Dunlap *
Charles Grant could be on his way out. Dunlap is a physical freak. SECOND ROUND
33. St. Louis- Illinois Arrelious Benn *
The Rams are looking for some more offensive weapons. Benn is big and fast. 34. Detroit- Georgia Tech RB Jonathan Dwyer *
Kevin Smith hasn't impressed the new Lions coaches. Stafford needs help.

. 36. Kansas City- South Florida S Nate Allen
Pioli still lands a quality safety despite passing on Berry. 37. Washington- USC OT Charles Brown
Shanahan gets a tackle to replace Chris Samuels and protect Clausen.

Jones would be a first-rounder in a normal year. 39. Oakland- Florida G/C Maurkice Pouncey *
The Raiders need some help inside to block for Russell and McFadden.
40. Seattle- California RB Javhid Best *
Carroll knows how good a back that Best is from their PAC-10 battles. 41. Buffalo- Florida LB Brandon Spikes
The Bills need help at linebacker, and Spikes will be a good 3-4 ILB.
42. Tampa Bay (from Chicago)- Georgia Tech WR Demaryius Thomas *
Get the analysis here
. 43. Miami- Tennessee DT Dan Williams
Williams is overrated like Robert Ayers in '09. He's better in the 3-4.
44. New England (from Jacksonville) - South Carolina OLB Eric Norwood
He fits well as a 3-4 OLB. He gives the Pats an upgraded pass rush.
45. Denver- Northwestern DT Corey Wootton

The G-men capitalize on a strong safety draft, and fill a huge need. 47. New England (from Tennessee) - Florida QB Tim Tebow

The 49ers fill a big need. They'd love to land Joe Haden in round one.50. Kansas City (from Atlanta) - North Carolina DT Cam Thomas
Had a great Senior Bowl. A good fit for a 3-4 team. 51. Houston- California DT Tyson Alualu
The Texans are looking for an impact defensive tackle. 52. Pittsburgh- Illinois G Jon Asamoah
The Steelers offensive line needs help.
53. New England- Texas WR Jordan Shipley
A replacement for Wes Welker in the short-term and a long-term starter.

The Packers land an underrated cornerback at a need position.
57. Baltimore- Arizona TE Rob Gronkowski *
