Round 1

Skip To Round:  1  •  2  •  3  •  4  •  5  •  6  •  7  •  Supplemental  •  Undrafted
1 Indianapolis Andrew Luck* QB Stanford 6' 4" 235
DraftSite's comments:Indianapolis solidified their future with the pick of Andrew Luck. He is as good of a prospect as his predecessor Peyton Manning was coming out of college, if not better due to his athleticism.
2 Washington Trade Icon Robert Griffin III* QB Baylor 6' 3" 210
DraftSite's comments:The Redskins got a perfect fit for their offense with the athletic and strong-armed Robert Griffin. He should be able to lead this team right away and mesh well with the rest of his offensive playmakers.
3 Cleveland Trade Icon Trent Richardson* RB Alabama 5' 11" 220
DraftSite's comments:Trent Richardson gives Cleveland a potential Pro Bowl running back for the next 5 years, effectively replacing Peyton Hillis. With Montario Hardesty behind him, he should be able to stave some mileage off his legs.
4 Minnesota Trade Icon Matt Kalil* OT USC 6' 6" 295
DraftSite's comments:Matt Kalil gives Minnesota one of the best tackle duos in the league with him and Phil Loadholt. Their 2nd year quarterback Christian Ponder is now better protected and put in a better position to succeed and win games.
5 Jacksonville Trade Icon Justin Blackmon* WR Oklahoma State 6' 1" 205
DraftSite's comments:Jacksonville needed a number 1 wide receiver badly, especially with a 2nd year quarterback who they have high hopes for. Blackmon gives Gabbert a sure-handed receiver who is disciplined and a quality leader.
6 Dallas Trade Icon Morris Claiborne* CB LSU 6' 0" 177
DraftSite's comments:Dallas had needs in the secondary, and they get arguably the best cornerback in the draft this year, to pair with Brandon Carr and Mike Jenkins.
7 Tampa Bay Trade Icon Mark Barron S Alabama 6' 2" 210
DraftSite's comments:Tampa Bay had a serious need at safety, and they just took the only safety in this draft who is guaranteed to start. It might be a little early for him, but considering the rest of the safeties in this draft and Tampa Bay's needs, this was a perfect fit for their team. Barron has great coverage skills and is a strong leader that will be key for a young defense.
8 Miami Ryan Tannehill QB Texas A&M 6' 4" 216
DraftSite's comments:Tannehill is a raw quarterback, but given that he will be working in the same system he did in college, he should make a very smooth transition into the NFL. Probably would have been better off waiting to get a top QB from next year's strong class, since he might not start right away anyways, but he's still a great talent and should give fans in Miami hope.
9 Carolina Luke Kuechly* ILB Boston College 6' 3" 225
DraftSite's comments:Luke Kuechly is one of the more instinctive linebackers to come along in a while. Yet Carolina had years spending early round picks on linebackers, only to still have needs along their line.
10 Buffalo Stephon Gilmore* CB South Carolina 6' 1" 188
DraftSite's comments:The Bills just redid their Leodis McKelvin pick, getting a great shut-down corner who is an exceptional return man. This pick along with last year's picks Aaron Williams, Justin Rogers, now-veteran McKelvin, and stud safety Jarius Byrd give them one of the best secondaries in the league.
11 Kansas City Dontari Poe* DT Memphis 6' 5" 350
DraftSite's comments:Kansas City now has the Po Brothers at nose tackle with Dontari Poe and last year's pick Jerrell Powe. This was a position of concern for the Chiefs, especially with strong defensive ends of Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson flanking and depending on the position.
12 Philadelphia Trade Icon Fletcher Cox* DT Mississippi State 6' 4" 300
DraftSite's comments:When the Eagles traded Broderick Bunkley last year, they thought they were set at defensive tackle, but then injuries and free agency hit, and they suddenly need more depth. Fletcher Cox gives them a strong rotational player and potential starter.
13 Arizona Michael Floyd WR Notre Dame 6' 3" 220
DraftSite's comments:Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald make one of the best wide receiver duos in the league. Yet Arizona had a lot of needs and if they can't block for the quarterback there aren't going to be enough balls to get to them.
14 LA Rams Trade Icon Michael Brockers** DT LSU 6' 6" 300
DraftSite's comments:St. Louis was in definite need of a defensive tackle to play in between their strong defensive ends of Chris Long and Robert Quinn. Brockers will be able to stop the run and hold blockers, while newly signed Kendall Langford can get into the backfield.
15 Seattle Trade Icon Bruce Irvin DE West Virginia 6' 3" 235
DraftSite's comments:Bruce Irvin is one of the fastest defensive ends in the draft, and will help a Seattle team, along with newly signed Jason Jones, who is in dire need of a pass rush.
16 NY Jets Quinton Coples DE UNC 6' 6" 272
DraftSite's comments:Some might argue that the Jets got the best Defensive End prospect in the draft. He might have been better for a 4-3 defense, but for a Jets team that needs pass rush, they might have found gold.
17 Cincinnati Trade Icon Dre' Kirkpatrick* CB Alabama 6' 3" 190
DraftSite's comments:When Leon Hall got hurt last year, Cincinnati was in trouble at cornerback. Now with 6'2" shutdown corner Kirkpatrick, the Bengals have a strong secondary.
18 San Diego Melvin Ingram DE South Carolina 6' 2" 264
DraftSite's comments:With a breakout year for Antwan Barnes and the signing of Jarret Johnson, the outside linebacker position seems a little crowded, but to get a versatile athlete like Ingram, will put their defense back into contention.
19 Chicago Shea McClellin DE Boise State 6' 3" 262
DraftSite's comments:Shea McClellin and Julius Peppers form a dominant pass rush for a defense that needs some energy and youth.
20 Tennessee Kendall Wright WR Baylor 5' 11" 185
DraftSite's comments:When Kenny Britt got hurt last year, Tennessee struggled to find an identity. Nate Washington played great and Damian Williams showed promise, but now Tennessee has a very effective slot receiver and kick returner.
21 New England Trade Icon Chandler Jones DE Syracuse 6' 5" 251
DraftSite's comments:Had Chandler Jones not gotten injured, he might have been a top 10 pick. New England needs some definite pass rush, and Chandler Jones will give them a lot of that.
22 Cleveland Trade Icon Brandon Weeden QB Oklahoma State 6' 4" 219
DraftSite's comments:Cleveland wanted someone to come in and compete with Colt McCoy, but most normal rookies would not be ready to do that right out of the gate. However, Weeden is 28-years old and has the maturity to play right away if McCoy falters at all. It's a lot to invest in someone who's career might not be as long as normal rookies, but if he can play and win right away, it's worth the risk.
23 Detroit Riley Reiff* OT Iowa 6' 6" 280
DraftSite's comments:The Lions got very lucky that a starting left tackle fell into their lap at this position. They've needed to focus on their offensive line for quite some time, and getting an Iowa guy like Reiff will help Stafford and their running backs stay upright and avoid injuries again.
24 Pittsburgh David DeCastro* OG Stanford 6' 5" 310
DraftSite's comments:DeCastro is arguably the best offensive lineman in the draft, a hair below Matt Kalil only because he plays the less important position of guard.
25 New England Trade Icon Dont'a Hightower OLB Alabama 6' 4" 250
DraftSite's comments:New England already has Jerod Mayo and Brandon Spikes as their inside linebackers, so drafting Dont'a Hightower allows them to put him at his more natural position of outside linebacker. For a team that needed pass rushers, getting Hightower and Chandler Jones just threw that need out the window and automatically made them a force on the outside.
26 Houston Whitney Mercilus* DE Illinois 6' 4" 265
DraftSite's comments:Brooks Reed and Connor Barwin played excellent as pass rushing outside linebackers last year. However, Whitney Mercilus was too good of a prospect to pass up for this team, especially seeing how easy it is to lose a player for the year, like they did with Mario Williams last year. Mercilus will give them an excellent rotation and make them a scary defense for whichever offense they face.
27 Cincinnati Trade Icon Kevin Zeitler OG Wisconsin 6' 4" 315
DraftSite's comments:Zeitler and last year's draft choice at guard, Clint Boling, give the Bengals a great interior line, especially if Zeitler could play center.
28 Green Bay Nick Perry* DE USC 6' 3" 250
DraftSite's comments:Perfect fit for Green Bay to play opposite Clay Matthews. The two of them will wreck havoc in the backfield of opposing offenses.
29 Minnesota Trade Icon Harrison Smith S Notre Dame 6' 2" 212
DraftSite's comments:Minnesota was in desperate need of safety help and getting a player like Harrison Smith gives them a sturdy safety net in the back part of their defense. He is a sound and instinctive tackler, who will clean up any mess that the linebackers and corners let by.
30 San Francisco A.J. Jenkins WR Illinois 6' 1" 185
DraftSite's comments:San Francisco clearly felt that wide receiver was a big need going into this off-season, signing Mario Manningham, Randy Moss, and now drafting A.J.Jenkins to play with Michael Crabtree. Jenkins is an exceptional receiver who can return some kicks as well, and should give the 49'ers no question marks catching the ball going into the season.
31 Tampa Bay Trade Icon Doug Martin RB Boise State 5' 9" 201
DraftSite's comments:If your defensive line is playing against LeGarrette Blount and Doug Martin, you better plan to take off a few days because you are going to be sore. The two of them will wear down defenses and open up the sides for their strong receiving corps.
32 NY Giants David Wilson* RB Virginia Tech 5' 11" 200
DraftSite's comments:David Wilson is the most complete running back in the draft behind Trent Richardson. His small frame will be tested early, as well the coaches' acceptance of him running it to the outside. Yet he has a strong build that will allow him to cut inside effectively when willing.

Round 2

Skip To Round:  1  •  2  •  3  •  4  •  5  •  6  •  7  •  Supplemental  •  Undrafted
33 LA Rams Brian Quick WR Appalachian State 6' 5" 220
DraftSite's comments:St. Louis needed a wide receiver, and while Quick isn't as heralded as some of the other wide receivers still on the board, he is just as talented. He'll be given plenty of opportunity to showcase with Sam Bradford throwing him the ball.
34 Indianapolis Coby Fleener TE Stanford 6' 6" 248
DraftSite's comments:Talk about a perfect fit for Fleener, going to Indianapolis to play with his college partner and best friend Andrew Luck. For a team that lost Dallas Clark and Jacob Tamme they definitely needed some help at that position.
35 Baltimore Trade Icon Courtney Upshaw DE Alabama 6' 2" 262
DraftSite's comments:Baltimore isn't sure if Sergio Kindle is going to come back, and with Jarrett Johnson leaving for San Diego, they needed some more help at outside linebacker. Courtney Upshaw would have been a great pick at the original spot in the first round, and is even better now considering they picked up a bunch of additional draft picks to do so.
36 Denver Trade Icon Derek Wolfe DT Cincinnati 6' 5" 298
DraftSite's comments:Despite not measuring up ideally by NFL standards, Wolfe was one of the more productive defensive tackles in college this year at Cincinnati and should be able to step in right away for Denver at a position in which they need a lot of help.
37 Cleveland Mitchell Schwartz OT Cal 6' 5" 310
DraftSite's comments:They probably could have gotten Mitchell Schwartz later in the draft, but it's hard to predict when it comes to tackles since they often go early. He solidifies a strong Cleveland offensive line with Joe Thomas and Alex Mack.
38 Jacksonville Andre Branch DE Clemson 6' 5" 260
DraftSite's comments:Great pick for a Jacksonville team who desperately needed some pass rush. Branch had over 10 sacks and 17 tfls this year at Clemson, proving he knows how to get in the backfield.
39 LA Rams Trade Icon Janoris Jenkins CB North Alabama 5' 11" 186
DraftSite's comments:Janoris Jenkins has a ton of talent and easily could have been a first round pick. For a team that needed a lot of secondary help going into this year, the combination of him and newly signed Cortland Finnegan, instantly give them one of the better secondaries in the league.
40 Carolina Amini Silatolu OG Midwestern State 6' 3" 325
DraftSite's comments:Carolina has needed a standout guard for a while, and Silatolu gives them that. While he played at a small school and some wonder if he is too raw, the Panthers have good players surrounding him with Jordan Gross, Ryan Kalil, and Jeff Otah
41 Buffalo Cordy Glenn OG Georgia 6' 5" 330
DraftSite's comments:THe Bills definitely needed a tackle after losing Demetress Bell, and while Glenn might be looked at as a guard, he could play tackle just as easily and be successful at it.
42 Miami Jonathan Martin* OT Stanford 6' 6" 282
DraftSite's comments:The Dolphins desperately needed a right tackle, and they got one of the best in college football last year. He's an athletic player who will anchor their line with Jake Long for years to come.
43 NY Jets Trade Icon Stephen Hill* WR Georgia Tech 6' 5" 206
DraftSite's comments:Unbelievably athletic, but also very raw. He's 6'5" though and the Jets might try to use him like they did with Plaxico Burress. The Jets definitely needed some more wide receivers and Stephen Hill gives them a great prospect and weapon for whichever quarterback starts.
44 Kansas City Jeff Allen OG Illinois 6' 5" 305
DraftSite's comments:Jeff Allen completes Kansas City's offensive line with Branden Albert and Eric Winston at tackle, and Jon Asamoah and Rodney Hudson inside. While he played tackle most of his illustrious career at Illinois, he'll likely play guard or could switch in and out of tackle when needed.
45 Chicago Trade Icon Alshon Jeffery* WR South Carolina 6' 3" 234
DraftSite's comments:Huge wide receiver, who along with Brandon Marshall makes their need at wide receiver disappear. He can grab any ball out of the air, and with a good quarterback should be able to do it much more consistently.
46 Philadelphia Mychal Kendricks OLB Cal 6' 0" 241
DraftSite's comments:Kendricks is a very athletic outside linebacker and very productive player at Cal, who will be a great fit next to DeMeco Ryans in the middle of Philadelphia's improving defense.
47 Seattle Trade Icon Bobby Wagner ILB Utah State 6' 1" 230
DraftSite's comments:Wagner had a great senior bowl and was one of the best linebackers in college this year, so he'll provide a Seattle team in need of help at linebacker, a stable middle defender.
48 New England Trade Icon Tavon Wilson S Illinois 6' 0" 205
DraftSite's comments:The Patriots probably could have waited to get Wilson, or could have done what they normally do and trade down, but clearly they didn't want to wait. Wilson was a great safety net at Illinois and provides New England with a player in the back part of their defense to put next to Patrick Chung and replace Brandon Meriweather.
49 San Diego Kendall Reyes DT UConn 6' 4" 295
DraftSite's comments:Reyes gives San Diego more ammo for their defensive line along with last year's pick Corey Liuget, previous 1st round pick Luis Castillo, and some of their big nose tackles like Antonio Garay and Cam Thomas. Might not be an immediate place for him in the starting lineup, but he should be able to make an impact every time he's in the game.
50 LA Rams Trade Icon Isaiah Pead RB Cincinnati 5' 10" 193
DraftSite's comments:Great running back at Cincinnati and showed his skill-set at the Senior Bowl running well and returning kicks with ease.
51 Green Bay Trade Icon Jerel Worthy* DT Michigan State 6' 3" 292
DraftSite's comments:One of the more dominant players in the Big Ten this year playing defensive tackle at Michigan State. Green Bay's defensive line will be a little crowded but could fit in nicely next to B.J. Raji and opposite either Mike Neal, C.J. Wilson, or Jarius Wynn.
52 Tennessee Zach Brown OLB UNC 6' 2" 225
DraftSite's comments:The fastest linebacker in the draft, now gives Tennessee one of the best future middle-3 linebackers in the league with last year's rookie Colin McCarthy and Akeem Ayers.
53 Cincinnati Devon Still DT Penn State 6' 5" 311
DraftSite's comments:Cincinnati now boasts arguably the best and youngest defensive tackle rotations in the league along with Domata Peko and Geno Atkins. Still was one of the bright spots in a difficult year for Penn State getting behind the line constantly, talling 17 tackles for a loss as a senior.
54 Detroit Ryan Broyles WR Oklahoma 5' 11" 178
DraftSite's comments:Once again the Lions pick on the wrong side of the ball with needs at cornerback. Had it not been for the injuries this year at Oklahoma, Broyles could have been a first round pick based on his productivity alone. He along with Calvin Johnson will catch every ball thrown in the air.
55 Atlanta Peter Konz* OC Wisconsin 6' 5" 315
DraftSite's comments:Atlanta needed a center for the future with Todd McClure getting up there in age, and they just got the best center prospect in the draft.
56 Pittsburgh Mike Adams OT Ohio State 6' 8" 300
DraftSite's comments:There were thoughts that he could have been picked by Pittsburgh in the first round, but instead fell to them in the 2nd round and along with David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey, gives them one of the best young center-to-left part of the line in the league.
57 Denver Brock Osweiler* QB Arizona State 6' 8" 245
DraftSite's comments:Denver needed a future quarterback and a potential starter in case Peyton Manning gets injured again. Osweiler has a great arm and big frame, and will be able to learn from another relatively immobile quarterback.
58 Tampa Bay Trade Icon Lavonte David ILB Nebraska 6' 1" 211
DraftSite's comments:David is a tackling machine at Nebraska, and gives Tampa Bay a strong middle linebacking crew along with Quincy Black, Mason Foster, and Dekoda Watson.
New OrleansForfeit
59 Philadelphia Trade Icon Vinny Curry DE Marshall 6' 5" 242
DraftSite's comments:Curry has been one of the most productive defensive ends in all of college football the last two years. The Eagles might not have needed a defensive end with Trent Cole, Jason Babin, and Brandon Graham already there, but Curry will provide a little extra help on the line and on special teams.
60 Baltimore Kelechi Osemele OG Iowa State 6' 5" 328
DraftSite's comments:Could play guard to replace Ben Grubbs or even outside at tackle instead of Bryant McKinnie. He showed great versatility and length at Iowa State and will be a great player to move around the offensive line for the Ravens.
61 San Francisco LaMichael James* RB Oregon 5' 9" 180
DraftSite's comments:LaMichael James was one of the most explosive players in the league last year, and will be used primarily next year for kick returns, given that they already have Frank Gore, another undersized running back Kendall Hunter, and newly signed Brandon Jacobs.
62 Green Bay Trade Icon Casey Hayward CB Vanderbilt 6' 0" 185
DraftSite's comments:Many thought Hayward was going to be targeted by New England, which is possibly why Green Bay traded up for him. He was a ball hawk at Vanderbilt consistently grabbing interceptions and gives Green Bay well-needed depth at cornerback behind Charles Woodson.
63 NY Giants Rueben Randle* WR LSU 6' 3" 201
DraftSite's comments:Randle could have been a first round pick if he stayed in school another year. Big, tall receiver who gives the Giants one more great threat to catch the ball along with Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz.

Round 3

Skip To Round:  1  •  2  •  3  •  4  •  5  •  6  •  7  •  Supplemental  •  Undrafted
64 Indianapolis Dwayne Allen* TE Clemson 6' 4" 255
DraftSite's comments:The Colts get the two best pass catching tight ends in the draft with Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen. Allen is a better blocker, so between the two of them, they get strong bookends for their line who can jump out and be automatic weapons down field.
65 LA Rams Trumaine Johnson CB Montana 6' 2" 210
DraftSite's comments:He's a very tall cornerback, who along with Janoris Jenkins provides St. Louis the most improved secondary in the league. While he played at a smaller school of Montana, he showed the skills that could translate well to the NFL.
66 Minnesota Josh Robinson* CB UCF 5' 10" 186
DraftSite's comments:Fastest cornerback at the combine, was a productive player at Central Florida who would have benefited from an extra year at Central Florida. However, for a Minnesota team that needed a lot of secondary help, Robinson and Harrison Smith immediately upgrade the back part of their defense.
67 Denver Trade Icon Ronnie Hillman** RB San Diego State 5' 10" 175
DraftSite's comments:Incredibly productive runner from San Diego State, who fills a big concern for Denver with Knowshon Moreno injury-prone and Willis McGahee getting up there in age.
68 Houston Trade Icon DeVier Posey WR Ohio State 6' 2" 200
DraftSite's comments:Posey was another player who was hurt by the Ohio State suspensions, as he could have been the most productive wide receiver in the Big Ten last year. He'll be a great fit opposite Andre Johnson and will make their offense even more effective than it was.
69 Buffalo Trade Icon T.J. Graham WR NC State 6' 1" 180
DraftSite's comments:T.J. Graham was one of the leaders in the FBS for total yards, and gives Buffalo not only a good slot option at wide receiver but also a home run threat as a return man on special teams.
70 Jacksonville Bryan Anger PT Cal 6' 4" 207
DraftSite's comments:Some people though Josh Scobee was picked early for Jacksonville in the 5th round, but this is early for a punter/kicker. Anger though has one of the strongest legs for a punter to come along for years, and they will probably not regret having him on the team.
71 Washington Trade Icon Josh LeRibeaus OG SMU 6' 2" 311
DraftSite's comments:LeRibeaus was part of a line for a team who's offense improved by leaps and bounds. The Redskins offensive line needs a lot of help with most of their strength on the outside at tackle.
72 Miami Olivier Vernon* DE Miami 6' 4" 250
DraftSite's comments:Vernon's suspensions hurt him, but his athleticism can not be denied and he will provide at great option as a pass rushing outside linebacker opposite Cameron Wake.
73 San Diego Trade Icon Brandon Taylor S LSU 6' 0" 191
DraftSite's comments:Brandon Taylor was one of the leaders on an accomplished LSU defense this year. Putting him next to Weddle, along with Darrell Stuckey backing them up, gives them a very strong back end to the defense.
74 Kansas City Donald Stephenson OT Oklahoma 6' 6" 309
DraftSite's comments:Tackle didn't seem like a big need after signing Eric Winston and drafting Illinois tackle Jeff Allen, but it never hurts to have more depth on the offensive line. Donald Stephenson was a strong tackle at Oklahoma and will provide some extra leadership for the Chiefs.
75 Seattle Russell Wilson QB Wisconsin 5' 11" 208
DraftSite's comments:Had Russell Wilson been a few inches taller he would have been a 1st round pick, but he's not and he fell to the 3rd. He's got a strong arm after playing baseball for years, and excellent leadership and accuracy as proven at both N.C. State and Wisconsin.
76 Houston Trade Icon Brandon Brooks OG Miami (Ohio) 6' 5" 343
DraftSite's comments:Brandon Brooks gives Houston excellent depth on the interior of their line where they needed some extra depth.
77 NY Jets Demario Davis ILB Arkansas State 6' 3" 231
DraftSite's comments:Demario Davis was a productive linebacker at Arkansas State, but still has a few things to prove at the next level before he could be trusted as a starter.
78 Miami Trade Icon Michael Egnew TE Missouri 6' 6" 235
DraftSite's comments:Egnew was one of the best tight ends in college football his junior year, and while his production might have declined, his all-around skill-set remained the same. He can pluck balls from out of the air and provide extra blocking along the line.
79 Chicago Brandon Hardin CB Oregon State 6' 3" 216
DraftSite's comments:Hardin is a fast rising cornerback with great size, who gives Chicago a much needed boost in the back side of their defense at both cornerback and safety. After losing Zack Bowman and Corey Graham to free agency, the Bears are lacking playmakers in their secondary.
80 Arizona Jamell Fleming CB Oklahoma 5' 11" 191
DraftSite's comments:Arizona has a great cornerback in last year's rookie Patrick Peterson, and some other good pieces, but they need a more reliable starter and Fleming gives them that. One of the best defenders on Oklahoma, he provides strong leadership and reliability in Arizona's secondary.
81 Dallas Tyrone Crawford DE Boise State 6' 4" 275
DraftSite's comments:Dallas gets a player in Tyrone Crawford who could potentially rush the passer outside or play along their defensive line holding up blockers. He was a key component in Boise State's success the last few years, and will provide a lot of depth to Dallas.
82 Tennessee Mike Martin DT Michigan 6' 2" 299
DraftSite's comments:The best player on Michigan's defense who has a big frame and strong center of gravity. Tennessee adds to an already great front-line rotation along with last year's successful picks Jurrell Casey, Karl Klug, and young players Derrick Morgan and Sen'Derrick Marks.
83 Cincinnati Mohamed Sanu* WR Rutgers 6' 2" 218
DraftSite's comments:Cincinnati gets a wide receiver who has the skill set to have been a first round pick. He provides a perfect compliment to A.J. Green and a great replacement for Jerome Simpson.
84 Baltimore Trade Icon Bernard Pierce* RB Temple 6' 0" 218
DraftSite's comments:Pierce was a touchdown machine last year scoring 27 touchdowns last year for Temple. He provides a perfect thunder to Ray Rice's lightning, and gives Baltimore a potent running back attack.
85 Detroit Dwight Bentley CB Louisiana-Lafayette 5' 11" 173
DraftSite's comments:Detroit needed more cornerbacks to pair with Chris Houston, and they got an extremely fast one in Dwight Bentley. He played against smaller competition in college but looked to hold his own against tough competition in the scouting games.
86 Pittsburgh Sean Spence OLB Miami 6' 0" 212
DraftSite's comments:Pittsburgh needed another inside linebacker to replace James Farrior and play next to Lawrence Timmons. Sean Spence is a little undersized but he was an excellent defender for a Miami team that was missing a lot of key players.
87 Cleveland Trade Icon John Hughes DT Cincinnati 6' 4" 300
DraftSite's comments:John Hughes was the lesser of the two of Cincinnati's defensive tackles, and clearly the beneficiary of Derek Wolfe's dominance. This was probably a little early for Hughes, but Cleveland needed some extra depth at DT to play alongside last year's 1st round pick Phil Taylor.
88 Philadelphia Trade Icon Nick Foles QB Arizona 6' 5" 235
DraftSite's comments:Nick Foles could have been a first round pick if his Arizona team won more than 4 games last year. He has perfect size for a quarterback and a nice touch on his throws, going for over 4000 yards last year. Philadelphia wanted a developmental quarterback in case Vick doesn't make it the whole year, and Foles gives them exactly that.
89 New Orleans Akiem Hicks DT Regina 6' 5" 300
DraftSite's comments:The Saints add to their strong defensive tackle rotation of Sedrick Ellis and newly signed Brodrick Bunkley. Even though Hicks played in Canada, he'll be fine playing the sport in the United States.
90 New England Trade Icon Jake Bequette DE Arkansas 6' 5" 270
DraftSite's comments:The Patriots go with another defensive end in the draft, but this time it's more tailored towards their defensive line. Bequette has the size and strength to play the defensive end position in their 3-4 defense, but showed during the Senior Bowl that he could play outside rushing the passer as well.
91 Atlanta Trade Icon Lamar Holmes OT Southern Miss 6' 6" 333
DraftSite's comments:Lamar Holmes was one of the keys to a successful Southern Mississippi team. Holmes and Konz give Atlanta two potential starters along their offensive line, where depth was much needed.
92 Indianapolis Trade Icon T.Y. Hilton WR Florida International 5' 10" 175
DraftSite's comments:T.Y. Hilton is blazing fast, and Indianapolis just picked up another great weapon for Andrew Luck. Hilton is also incredibly effective in the return game and makes them very dangerous on special teams.
93 Cincinnati Trade Icon Brandon Thompson DT Clemson 6' 3" 305
DraftSite's comments:Thompson is a player that the Bengals will fall in love with, and could have been a first round pick if he came out last year. The Bengals clearly went with who they thought was the best player available, but finding time for him to play will be an issue, especially with their second round pick Devon Still.
94 NY Giants Jayron Hosley* CB Virginia Tech 5' 11" 170
DraftSite's comments:Jayron Hosley is another player who has the talent to have been a 1st or 2nd round pick, but when his productivity dipped last year, he clearly fell in scout's eyes. Yet the Giants just got a player who can immediately step in to help replace Aaron Ross, but can also give them a very valuable weapon in their punt return game.
Special Pick Info Icon
Oakland Tony Bergstrom OT Utah 6' 6" 310
DraftSite's comments:Oakland has a few nice pieces along their offensive line with Stefen Wisniewski, Jared Veldheer, and Joseph Barksdale, but Bergstrom gives them great versatility and depth as he can play both right tackle and inside at guard.

Round 4

Skip To Round:  1  •  2  •  3  •  4  •  5  •  6  •  7  •  Supplemental  •  Undrafted
96 LA Rams Chris Givens* WR Wake Forest 6' 1" 200
DraftSite's comments:Very productive wide receiver at Wake Forest who might end up better than their second round pick Brian Quick.
97 Miami Trade Icon Lamar Miller** RB Miami 5' 11" 210
DraftSite's comments:Miami is finally loving the Miami guys, taking their second one in this draft. Lamar Miller gives the Dolphins a great alternative to Daniel Thomas and Reggie Bush, although not much variability.
98 Baltimore Trade Icon Gino Gradkowski OC Delaware 6' 4" 294
DraftSite's comments:Baltimore needed a long-term center, and time will tell if Gradkowski can be that for them, but he will at least be a serviceable guard in the meantime.
99 Houston Trade Icon Ben Jones OC Georgia 6' 3" 300
DraftSite's comments:Center didn't seem to be as big of a need once the Texans re-signed Chris Myers, but they got one of the best ones in the draft in Ben Jones.
100 Cleveland Travis Benjamin WR Miami 5' 10" 175
DraftSite's comments:Cleveland needed another wide receiver and they got a fast, athletic one from Miami, although many might say Tommy Streeter was the better prospect from the school. His production wasn't great in college, but his quarterback situation was always in flux, so he'll adjust to Cleveland quite well.
101 Denver Trade Icon Omar Bolden CB Arizona State 5' 10" 195
DraftSite's comments:Denver needed some cornerback depth, and if Bolden could prove he's fully back from injury, the Broncos will have found a great long-term answer.
102 Washington Kirk Cousins QB Michigan State 6' 3" 202
DraftSite's comments:Washington wanted a strong backup for Robert Griffin III, especially since his running style makes him prone to injuries. Cousins show extremely strong leadership and poise at Michigan State, and has the qualities necessary to be successful if he ever gets a starting opportunity.
103 Carolina Trade Icon Frank Alexander DE Oklahoma 6' 4" 259
DraftSite's comments:Frank Alexander started off the year for Oklahoma very strong, and has a great motor and good size for a defensive end. He immediately upgrades Carolina's pass rush, one that is looking for another consistent long-term starter opposite Charles Johnson.
104 Carolina Joe Adams WR Arkansas 5' 11" 182
DraftSite's comments:Carolina might have gotten Steve Smith Jr. with this pick, and it was well needed with not too many receivers stepping up consistently.
105 Buffalo Nigel Bradham ILB Florida State 6' 2" 235
DraftSite's comments:Buffalo needed a linebacker, and they got Bradham, one of the best in the ACC, to play either inside or out, along with last year's standout rookie Kelvin Sheppard.
106 Seattle Robert Turbin* RB Utah State 5' 10" 202
DraftSite's comments:Seattle picked up some strong depth for behind Marshawn Lynch, and potential long-term replacement in Turbin. He was one of the most productive runners in the country last year with 1500 yards and 19 touchdowns, and he now joins a team that drafted one of the only other Utah State players drafted this decade.
107 Kansas City Devon Wylie WR Fresno State 5' 9" 185
DraftSite's comments:Small wide receiver who's workouts were probably better than his production at Fresno State. Wylie gives Kansas City a great option at slot receiver behind Bowe, Baldwin, and Breaston, and a solid return man on special teams.
108 Denver Trade Icon Philip Blake OC Baylor 6' 3" 315
DraftSite's comments:Blake gives Denver a solid option behind or next to J.D. Walton at center, for an offense that is undergoing a lot of changes and will need to protect their quarterback with their life.
109 Pittsburgh Trade Icon Alameda Ta'amu DT Washington 6' 3" 348
DraftSite's comments:DraftSite had Ta'amu consistently being drafted by the Steelers in our mock drafts, as we thought he would be a perfect fit for a team that needs a long-term answer at nose tackle. Clearly, Pittsburgh felt the same way, and got him later than they probably thought he'd be available.
110 San Diego Ladarius Green TE Louisiana-Lafayette 6' 6" 229
DraftSite's comments:San Diego needs a potential replacement for Antonio Gates, as injuries and age are starting told hold him down. Green is a dynamic pass-catcher who will give the Chargers another down-field option for Philip Rivers.
111 Chicago Evan Rodriguez TE Temple 6' 3" 250
DraftSite's comments:Chicago is another team that needs a starting tight end, and Evan Rodriguez will be able to come in and compete with Kellen Davis.
112 Arizona Bobby Massie* OT Mississippi 6' 6" 318
DraftSite's comments:Arizona got a potential much-needed starting left or right tackle in the 4th round, when many thought he might go in the second. He came out a year early from Ole Miss thinking he was ready, but apparently teams did not think that was the case.
113 Dallas Kyle Wilber DE Wake Forest 6' 5" 235
DraftSite's comments:Wilber is a similar player to Tyrone Crawford who Dallas drafted in the 3rd round, and gives them another potential pass rusher or lineman.
114 Seattle Trade Icon Jaye Howard DT Florida 6' 3" 295
DraftSite's comments:Seattle got a little more depth on their defensive line with productive lineman Jaye Howard. Howard got into the backfield often at Florida and should fit in nicely with Seattle's big defensive linemen.
115 Tennessee Coty Sensabaugh CB Clemson 6' 0" 185
DraftSite's comments:Coty has NFL pedigree and a great skill-set at cornerback. He brings depth to a Tennessee team that just lost their best corner to free agency.
116 Cincinnati Orson Charles* TE Georgia 6' 3" 241
DraftSite's comments:Orson Charles is another on a long list of underclassmen this draft who came out too early and hurt themselves. However, he is a great pass catcher and along with Jermaine Gresham gives Andy Dalton two great tight end weapons to throw to and protect him.
117 San Francisco Trade Icon Joe Looney OG Wake Forest 6' 3" 298
DraftSite's comments:San Francisco needed another interior lineman opposite Mike Iupati and Looney was a great run blocker for Wake Forest.
118 Minnesota Trade Icon Jarius Wright WR Arkansas 5' 10" 180
DraftSite's comments:One of the most productive all-purpose runners in the country, Jarius Wright gives Minnesota a valuable slot receiver and return man.
119 Washington Trade Icon Keenan Robinson ILB Texas 6' 3" 232
DraftSite's comments:Washington has Perry Riley and London Fletcher at inside linebacker, but Fletcher can't have too many years left, so Keenan Robinson gives the Redskins a solid long-term answer inside.
120 Cleveland Trade Icon James-Michael Johnson ILB Nevada 6' 2" 240
DraftSite's comments:Cleveland needs some outside linebackers to play next to D'Qwell Jackson, and Johnson, who was one of the best linebackers in the WAC and country, could step in and play right away.
121 Houston Keshawn Martin WR Michigan State 5' 11" 185
DraftSite's comments:Martin is an explosive wide receiver from Michigan State, who along with DeVier Posey give the Texans great depth at the wide receiver position behind Andre Johnson.
122 New Orleans Nick Toon WR Wisconsin 6' 3" 212
DraftSite's comments:For a team that lost Robert Meachum, Nick Toon gives them a great fill-in replacement and punt returner.
123 Philadelphia Trade Icon Brandon Boykin CB Georgia 5' 10" 185
DraftSite's comments:Philadelphia got a perfect nickel corner for their defense to play with Asomugha and Rodgers-Cromartie, and guard the opposing inside slot receiver. Boykin offers them a great punt returner as well.
124 Buffalo Trade Icon Ron Brooks S LSU 6' 0" 179
DraftSite's comments:Another combo secondary player for a Buffalo team who wants no shortage of players there.
125 Detroit Trade Icon Ronnell Lewis* OLB Oklahoma 6' 2" 234
DraftSite's comments:The Lions needed some linebacker help and got one of the better outside linebacker prospects in the draft in Ronnell Lewis.
126 Houston Trade Icon Jared Crick DT Nebraska 6' 6" 285
DraftSite's comments:Houston's defense was much improved last year with the addition of J.J. Watt to their defensive line, but they just hit gold getting Jared Crick in the 4th round. He is the perfect player for a DE position in a 3-4 defense and will be ready to jump in when Antonio Smith is done.
127 NY Giants Adrien Robinson TE Cincinnati 6' 4" 264
DraftSite's comments:With Martellus Bennett and Travis Beckum on the roster as pass catching tight ends, the Giants just got a good blocking tight end to mix in.
Special Pick Info Icon
Minnesota Rhett Ellison TE USC 6' 5" 245
DraftSite's comments:Minnesota got a combo tight end/fullback who has yet to reach his potential.
Special Pick Info Icon
Oakland Miles Burris ILB San Diego State 6' 3" 240
DraftSite's comments:Oakland gets a serviceable linebacker to mix in wiht Rolando McCalin, Philip Wheeler, and Aaron Curry.
Special Pick Info Icon
Baltimore Christian Thompson S South Carolina State 6' 1" 220
DraftSite's comments:Baltimore needs to start stockpiling replacements for Ed Reed, but their hoping Thompson can at least replace Zibikowski.
Special Pick Info Icon
NY Giants Brandon Mosley OT Auburn 6' 5" 305
DraftSite's comments:Giants get a much needed tackle who could come in and play the right side early on.
Special Pick Info Icon
Green Bay Mike Daniels DT Iowa 6' 1" 275
DraftSite's comments:Green Bay continues to stockpile their defensive line with another strong brawler from Iowa.
Special Pick Info Icon
Green Bay Jerron McMillian S Maine 5' 11" 203
DraftSite's comments:Jerron McMillian wasn't well known by the public until the combine, but he earned his spot as a draft pick, and provides Green Bay with some solid depth.
Special Pick Info Icon
Minnesota Greg Childs WR Arkansas 6' 3" 217
DraftSite's comments:Greg Childs can come in and be a valuable second or third receiver for the Vikings, as well as a dynamic punt returner.
Special Pick Info Icon
Dallas Matt Johnson S Eastern Washington 6' 0" 211
DraftSite's comments:While many thought Dallas was going to go after a safety early on, they started to address that need here with Matt Johnson, a productive winner at Eastern Washington.
