  1. Houston Texans: Tom Savage , QB, Pittsburgh
    Houston finally lands its quarterback. Savage has the size, arm and pocket presence that Bill O’Brien is looking for. The Texans get the best value by going for other positions at picks Nos. 1 and 33.

    Lately, there has been a nice buzz about Savage. Some are looking at him as a potential diamond in the rough as a mid-round pick. Savage (6-4, 228) has big size, pocket presence and a quality arm. He also hails from a pro-style offense. In 2013, the senior completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,958 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

    Savage started out his collegiate career at Rutgers in 2009. As a freshman, he threw for 2,211 yards and 14 touchdowns with seven interceptions. He lost his starting spot as a sophomore because of an injury. Savage left Rutgers for Arizona, but that didn’t work out and he transfered to Pittsburgh.

  2. Washington Redskins: Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee
    The Redskins start to revamp their offensive line for Jay Gruden’s offense.

    Richardson played well in 2013. In a rematch against Jadeveon Clowney, Richardson was too jacked up early on and Clowney beat him for some plays in run defense. Richardson settled down and kept Clowney from recording a sack. By the fourth quarter, South Carolina was moving Clowney around to go against other linemen. Richardson also had a strong performance against Missouri’s edge rushers.

    Richardson had some issues with Florida and young pass-rusher Dante Fowler. Richardson started the season strongly against some weak opponents. He played well overall against Georgia, but was beaten for a sack by Ray Drew.

    Entering the 2012 season, Dallas Thomas was a quality tackle prospect, but Richardson’s talent prompted Tennessee to move Thomas inside to guard. Richardson did an excellent job protecting Tyler Bray’s blind side. The Volunteers produced great pass protection with Richardson leading the way – the team only allowed eight sacks for the year.

    Richardson was a Second-Team All-SEC selection for his 2012 season. He also held his own going against South Carolina superstar Jadeveon Clowney. The 6-foot-6, 336-pound Richardson has size to go with some athleticism. It wouldn’t surprise me to see the junior’s stock rise in the runup to the 2014 NFL Draft.

  3. Oakland Raiders: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU
    The Raiders brought in Matt Schaub, but they need a young quarterback and like Mettenberger.

    Mettenberger (6-5, 224) has big size, a strong arm and some athletic ability. He massively improved his game under the direction of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. The senior’s accuracy, decision-making, field vision and fundamentals were exceptionally better year over year. He completed 65 percent of his passes in 2013 for 3,082 yards with 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

    On the road at Georgia, Mettenberger had a great performance to almost lead LSU to a victory. The Tigers’ defense failed him in the 44-41 loss to the Bulldogs. He had a rough game against Ole Miss in an upset loss.

    Mettenberger completed 59 percent of his throws in 2012 for 2,609 yards with 12 scores and seven interceptions. He has definitely improved since 2012, despite LSU’s loss to Alabama this season.

    Pick change; previously Dion Bailey, S

  4. Atlanta Falcons: Craig Loston, S, LSU
    The Falcons need another starting safety, and Loston fits their desire to get more physical this offseason.

    Loston (5-11, 217) replaced Brandon Taylor in the starting lineup in 2012 and had a solid debut. Loston was named a Second-Team All-SEC selection after making 55 tackles, three tackles for a loss, one pass broken up and three interceptions.

    The Tigers game-planned for the senior to lead their secondary in 2013 after losing Eric Reid to the NFL. Loston was much better as a senior. In 2013, he recorded 57 tackles, three passes broken up, three interceptions and four tackles for a loss. Loston didn’t play well against Georgia, but had good games against Florida, Alabama, Texas A&M and Iowa. He did well at the Senior Bowl.

    Pick change; previously Deone Bucannon, S

  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson
    The Buccaneers need some receiving help. Bryant fits the size and speed they’d like to draft.

    Bryant didn’t have the breakout 2013 season that many expected, but he still entered the 2014 NFL Draft. He caught 42 balls for 828 yards and seven touchdowns for the year. Prior to last season, Bryant was stuck behind DeAndre Hopkins and Sammy Watkins. Bryant (6-3, 211) has upside with a skill set that combines size and speed, but he needs development.

  6. Jacksonville Jaguars: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU
    The Jaguars grab their pass-rushing Leo linebacker.

    Van Noy was a never-ending source of splash plays for BYU and is extremely dangerous coming off the edge. He is a solid run-defender, but really excels in pass defense. The 6-foot-3, 244-pound linebacker is a good athlete who drops into coverage well and is a phenomenal blitzer.

    To open 2013, Van Noy had four tackles and two tackles for a loss against Virginia. He also caused an interception while tackling the quarterback. The senior repeatedly pounded Texas quarterback David Ash in the second game with a ton of hits. Van Noy notched eight tackles and a sack versus the Longhorns. He had a safety on a tackle for a loss against Middle Tennessee. Versus Utah State, Van Noy picked off a pass and returned it 17 yards for a touchdown. He recorded six tackles and three sacks taking on Georgia Tech.

    Teams schemed to limit Van Noy in 2013, which led to his numbers declining. He had 68 tackles with 17.5 tackles for a loss, four sacks, seven passes batted and two interceptions for the year.

    Van Noy has an excellent physical skill set with a lot of upside to develop in the NFL. He was one of the nation’s leading sackers in 2012 with 13 quarterback takedowns. The junior also recorded 53 tackles, 22 tackles for a loss, six forced fumbles, two interceptions and five passes batted. Van Noy had 68 tackles, 15 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, three forced fumbles, three passes batted and three interceptions in 2011.

  7. Cleveland Browns: Jared Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
    The Browns could use a wide receiver to go with Josh Gordon.

    The 6-foot, 189-pound Abbrederis is a gritty receiver with the speed to stretch the field and some toughness. He caught 73 passes for 1,051 yards with seven touchdowns in 2013. Abbrederis torched Bradley Roby and Ohio State for 10 receptions, 207 yards and a touchdown.

    Despite terrible quarterback play in 2012, Abbrederis totaled 49 catches for 837 yards and five touchdowns. He consistently produced big plays for the Badgers over 2011-2012. In 2011, even though Abbrederis had fewer receptions than No. 1 receiver Nick Toon, Abbrederis topped Toon in yardage. Abbrederis caught 55 passes for 933 yards and eight touchdowns. The sophomore exploited a lot of soft coverage and produced some big plays for quarterback Russell Wilson. Abbrederis also returned punts and averaged 16 yards per return. He is a good blocker as well.

    Pick change; previously Bishop Sankey, RB

  8. Minnesota Vikings: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska
    The Vikings could use another cornerback for Mike Zimmer.

    The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Jean-Baptiste fits the mold of the big corners who are becoming the rage in the NFL. He used the Senior Bowl to answer some questions. Many wondered if Jean-Baptiste had the movement skills to stay cornerback or would he have to be moved to safety. Jean-Baptiste proved that he does as he showed the potential to be more than a press-man cover. Jean-Baptiste illustrated the quickness and agility to play some off-man and zone coverage in Mobile.

    Jean-Baptiste had four interceptions with 12 passes batted and 41 tackles in 2013. He used the Senior Bowl to show that he is worthy of second-day consideration.

    Pick change; previously Cyril Richardson, G

  9. Buffalo Bills: Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor
    The Bills have been scouting the running backs hard, including Seastrunk. Perhaps Buffalo is looking for a future replacement for Fred Jackson.

    Seastrunk is an intriguing runner with size and speed. He has nice cutting ability and a real burst to break off long runs. Seastrunk needs to avoid the tendency to dance around and run more downhill. He also has to learn the passing game since he had zero receptions in 2013. Originally, Seastrunk signed with Oregon and redshirted as a freshman in 2010. He had to sit the 2011 season out after transferring to Baylor.

    To start the 2013 season, Seastrunk was on fire before an injury derailed his second half of the year. He ran for 1,117 yards and 11 touchdowns on only 158 carries (7.4 average). In the early going, Seastrunk only played in the first half of games as the Bears blew out so many opponents. He went over 100 yards in six of seven games before he was injured against Oklahoma. Seastrunk had numerous highlight-reel carries running over defenders and accelerating away from other defensive backs.

    Seastrunk (5-9, 201) finished the 2012 season in impressive fashion with 843 yards in the final six games. He averaged 7.7 yards per carry for the year on a total of 1,012 yards and seven touchdowns. The sophomore ran over some tough opponents, including Kansas State (19-185), Oklahoma State (16-178) and UCLA (16-139).

  10. New York Giants: Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
    Even though the Giants signed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, they could use some depth at corner and have shown interest in Gaines.

    Gaines (6-0, 193) was a star of the Combine and used the opportunity to really help his draft stock. He blistered the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds and did well in the field drills. The senior had 36 tackles with four interceptions and nine passes broken up in 2013. The year before, he recorded 33 tackles with 18 passes defended. Gaines clearly has a nice combination of size and speed. It wouldn’t be surprising if his stock climbs in the lead up to the 2014 NFL Draft.

  11. St. Louis Rams: Dion Bailey, S, USC
    The Rams land their safety to pair with T.J. McDonald.

    Bailey has ball-hawk ability and played safety in 2013. The 6-foot, 201-pounder recorded five interceptions with 62 tackles, 6.5 tackles for a loss, .5 sacks and six passes broken up. He had a big game against Stanford to help pull off an upset for the Trojans. Bailey was all over the field against Derek Carr and Fresno State in USC’s Las Vegas Bowl win.

    The speedy and instinctive Bailey is a very good pass-defender. He was a good Will linebacker in Monte Kiffin’s Tampa 2 at USC in 2012, totaling 80 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, four interceptions and five passes broken up. Bailey racked up 81 tackles, two interceptions and two sacks as a freshman in 2011. He has good instincts and is a versatile defender.

    Pick change; previously Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB

  12. Detroit Lions: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
    Detroit continues to add talent to its receiving corps. The Lions get a good value with Robinson as their complement for Calvin Johnson.

    In 2013, Robinson recorded 97 receptions for 1,432 yards and six touchdowns. The junior demonstrated nice quickness to get separation and run-after-the catch ability. He had many prolific games, including contests against Ohio State (12-173), Illinois (11-165) and Indiana (12-173). Robinson could still be on the bubble between the first and second day of the 2014 NFL Draft. How well he runs at the Combine – poorly – and his pro day will have a big impact on his draft stock.

    The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Robinson was one of the bright spots of the 2012 season for Penn State. He excelled in the Nittany Lions’ new pro-style offense. Robinson hauled in 77 passes for 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns after barely playing in 2011.

    Pick change; previously Ahmad Dixon, S

  13. San Francisco 49ers: Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado
    The 49ers could draft multiple receivers and have shown interest in Richardson.

    After a knee injury cost him the 2012 season, Richardson came back in impressive fashion to start 2013. He was the most productive receiver in the nation in Week 1 with 10 receptions for 208 yards and two touchdowns against Colorado State. Richardson maintained his strong play with 83 receptions for 1,343 yards and 10 touchdowns for the year. The 6-foot, 175-pounder has speed, but he needs to get stronger for the NFL.

    Richardson started his collegiate career strongly as a freshman and sophomore. In 2010, he hauled in 34 passes for 514 yards and six touchdowns. Richardson made 39 receptions for 555 yards and five scores in 2011. He lost 2012 to a torn ACL that occurred in the final week of spring practice.

  14. Dallas Cowboys: Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State
    Dallas continues to build up its defense. Joyner would be a nice safety or Ronde Barber-type corner in Rod Marinelli and Monte Kiffin’s defense.

    In 2013, Joyner totaled 69 tackles with seven tackles for a loss, two interceptions, four passes broken up, three forced fumbles and 5.5 sacks. The 5-foot-8, 194-pounder has some Tyrann Mathieu to him. Joyner is small, but he is a pure football player with excellent instincts. For the NFL, Joyner could get second-day consideration as a nickel corner and safety hybrid. He had a monstrous game against Clemson with two forced fumbles and an interception.

    Pick change; previously Carl Bradford, OLB

  15. Baltimore Ravens: Tre Mason, RB, Auburn
    Baltimore could take a running back to fortify their depth given Ray Rice’s on-the-field and off-the-field problems.

    Mason would be higher in this mock if he were bigger. Mason measured in at the Combine at 5-foot-8, 207 pounds, but looks smaller. He is very quick with superb cutting ability. The junior also has excellent balance and runs with good pad level to bounce off defenders. Once Mason learns blitz protection, he could be a three-down starter in the NFL.

    Mason had a massive 2013 season to help lead Auburn to an SEC title and almost a national championship. He averaged 5.7 yards per carry on the year for 1,816 yards with 23 touchdowns, plus had 12 receptions for 163 yards. As a sophomore on a bad team, Mason totaled 1,002 yards with eight touchdowns and an average of 5.9 yards per carry.

  16. New York Jets: Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU
    The Jets grab another receiver to help weaponize their quarterback.

    The 5-foot-11, 204-pound Landry plays bigger than his size. He is a tough receiver with good hands. The junior caught 77 passes for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2013. Landry was a reliable receiver for Zach Mettenberger. Landry is a good route-runner and has shown a real ability to make difficult catches in traffic that move the chains. He lacks speed and doesn’t have size to make up for it, but he is a gritty player who outfights defensive backs for the ball.

    Landry flashed for LSU in 2012 and did a nice job of moving the chains in the team’s run-heavy offense. He caught 56 passes for 573 yards and five touchdowns.

  17. Miami Dolphins: Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington
    The Dolphins continue to build up their running backs.

    Sankey was one of the best backs in college football in 2013. He averaged 5.8 yards per carry on the year for 1,775 yards with 18 touchdowns. The junior also tracked down 25 receptions for 298 yards and another score. Sankey ran really well against Stanford and Oregon, though he did have a fumble against the Ducks.

    The 5-foot-10, 203-pound Sankey isn’t the biggest back, but he makes up for his lack of size with speed and elusive running. Sankey has nice feet and balance. He also looks like a nice fit in the passing game for the NFL. As a sophomore in 2012, Sankey ran for 1,439 yards and 16 touchdowns while averaging five yards per carry. He caught 33 passes for 249 yards, too.

    Pick change; previously Justin Ellis, DT

  18. Chicago Bears: Marcus Roberson, CB, Florida
    The Bears need to get a young cornerback to develop behind their veterans.

    In 2013, Roberson recorded 11 tackles with three passes broken up while missing a total of five games with knee injuries. The junior recorded three tackles with four punts returned for 72 yards in the 2013 season opener against Toledo. Versus Miami, he had phenomenal man coverage, but sprained his knee. That caused Roberson to be held out for three games, and he was very rusty in his return against LSU.

    Roberson (6-0, 191) has upside to be man-cover corner with a nice combination of size and speed. I know some league sources who are high on Roberson. The Gators left him on man-coverage islands throughout his collegiate career, and he performed excellently, especially in 2012. Teams rarely tested Roberson as he blanketed his receivers.

    As a sophomore, Roberson played really well with 23 tackles, two interceptions and 12 passes broken up. He was the latest in line of talented cornerbacks like Joe Haden and Janoris Jenkins to start quickly for Florida.

    Roberson beat out a number of highly touted prospects for a starting job in 2011. The true freshman exceled and showed some natural man-cover skills. Roberson injured his neck and missed the final three games of the year. Still, he recorded 22 tackles and an interception for the season.

    Pick change; previously A.J. McCarron, QB

  19. Cleveland Browns: Chris Borland, ILB, Wisconsin
    The Browns could use some fortification at middle linebacker.

    Borland had 112 tackles with 8.5 tackles for a loss, two passes broken up, two forced fumbles and four sacks in 2013. The redshirt senior is a thumper middle linebacker who is a tough-as-nails run-defender. He has shown some nice pass-rush ability as an interior blitzer.

    Borland is a tough, physical defender who has a knack for jarring the ball loose. His best fit in the NFL could be on the inside of a 3-4 defense. He may not have the speed and athleticism to play in a 4-3. Borland is short and not a fluid enough athlete for pass coverage in the NFL.

    Borland totaled 104 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 10 tackles for a loss and six passes broken up in 2012. He recorded 143 tackles in 2011, along with 19 tackles for a loss, five forced fumbles, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions and five passes broken up.

  20. Arizona Cardinals: Ahmad Dixon, S, Baylor
    The Cardinals could use a young strong safety to pair with Tyrann Mathieu.

    Dixon played well in 2013 with 81 tackles, six passes broken up and an interception. He was a solid play-maker in the Bears’ defense. Dixon has good instincts and is always around the ball. He could be prone to penalties in the NFL due to physical style of play though. Dixon held his own at the Senior Bowl and ran surprisingly fast at the Combine with a 4.41-second time in the 40-yard dash.

    In 2012, Dixon finished third on his team in tackles with 102. The junior also contributed two interceptions, three passes broken up, 5.5 tackles for a loss and a sack.

    Pick change; previously Zach Mettenberger, QB

  21. Green Bay Packers: Christian Jones, ILB, Florida State
    The Packers could use more talent for their linebacking corps.

    Jones has good size, length and athleticism. The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder also is very fast and able to defend the sideline. In 2011 as a first-year starter, he totaled 56 tackles, six tackles for a loss, three sacks and two forced fumbles. Jones made a lot of improvements as a junior. He led Florida State in tackles with 95 with seven tackles for a loss and two forced fumbles in 2012.

    The Seminoles’ defense lost a lot of talent to the 2013 NFL Draft, and that caused Florida State to play Jones at defensive end a lot this year. Sources noted a nice buzz about Jones heading into the fall. He recorded 56 tackles with 7.5 tackles for a loss, one interception and two sacks in 2013. Jones had good games against Clemson, Miami and Auburn.

  22. Philadelphia Eagles: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers
    The Eagles could use more talent at wide receiver, and Coleman fits Chip Kelly’s desire to have wide outs with size.

    Coleman (6-6, 225) is a massive receiver who looks like a tight end. He was very consistent for Rutgers and produced while playing in a running offense. The junior led the Scarlet Knights with 43 receptions for 718 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2012. Coleman led Rutgers with 663 receiving yards on 39 receptions with 10 touchdowns the season before, too.

    The biggest question about Coleman is if he has enough speed for the NFL. The senior started out 2013 with nine receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns against Fresno State. He finished the year with a total of 33 receptions for 538 yards and four touchdowns. Coleman looks like he is still trying to regain his speed following last summer’s knee surgery.

    Pick change; previously Cody Latimer, WR

  23. Kansas City Chiefs: Carl Bradford, OLB/ILB, Arizona State
    Kansas City could use more talent in the middle of the defense. Bradford also offers some pass-rushing depth.

    The 6-foot-1, 250-pound Bradford played well in 2013. He has a unique skill set with toughness as a run-defender and pass-rushing ability. Bradford was impressive against Notre Dame with a lot of disruption. He was superb versus Washington State with forced fumbles and a sack, but was suspended against Oregon State. Bradford totaled 55 tackles with 18 tackles for a loss, 8.5 sacks, four passes broken up, one interception and three forced fumbles for the year.

    Bradford broke out in 2012 with 81 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 20.5 tackles for a loss, five passes defended, three forced fumbles and one interception. The sophomore started strongly and was on fire to close out the season. He had sacks in the final six games, with a total of seven sacks in that stretch.

    Pick change; previously Jared Abbrederis, WR

  24. Cincinnati Bengals: Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech
    The Bengals grab a backup quarterback. They have shown interest in Thomas, and after some development, he could push Andy Dalton.

    Thomas (6-5, 250) has the size, arm and mobility to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. He needs to do a ton of work to develop as a passer though. Thomas has to significantly improve his accuracy along with developing pocket presence. He has to become more patient, vastly improve his ability to read defenses and make better decisions. Thomas is prone to turnovers. Too often, he looks to run if he doesn’t see a receiver breaking open early.

    In 2013, Thomas completed 57 percent of his passes for 2,907 yards with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. The senior ran for four scores, too. As a junior, his completion percentage was just 51 percent for 2,976 yards with 18 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. He ran for 726 yards (524 net) and nine touchdowns.

    Thomas set the school record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in 2011, running for 627 yards and 11 scores. The first-year starter completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,013 yards with 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

    Pick change; previously Cameron Fleming, OT

  25. San Diego Chargers: Justin Ellis, DT, Louisiana Tech
    San Diego needs a new nose tackle, and Ellis would be a nice value in the third round.

    Ellis (6-1, 334) is a sleeper prospect who a lot of teams are high on. He is a heavy tackle who has power at the point of attack. Ellis showed some burst and surprising movement skills for big tackle at the Combine. The senior recorded 48 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks and a pass batted in 2013. He could be a nice value pick.

    Pick change; previously Lamarcus Joyner, CB

  26. Indianapolis Colts: Dontae Johnson, CB, N.C. State
    The Colts grab a young corner to work with Vontae Davis.

    Johnson (6-2, 200) picked up 82 tackles with two passes broken up and three interceptions in 2013. He was improved over his previous two seasons. For teams looking for tall and long cornerbacks, Johnson will be on their radar. He landed a spot in the Senior Bowl and had a decent week. At the Combine, Johnson ran faster than expected with a 4.45 40-yard dash. He is a sleeper worth watching and could benefit from the success of the Seattle Seahawks’ cornerbacks.

    Johnson got on the field as a sophomore when he played nickel and linebacker. He had 58 tackles. In 2012, Johnson moved to cornerback and totaled 70 tackles with eight passes broken up, one sack and a forced fumble.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Coleman, WR

  27. New Orleans Saints: Marcus Martin, C, USC
    The Saints need a long-term center, and Martin fits the type they like in the middle.

    Martin (6-3, 320) was a surprise entry in the 2014 NFL Draft. He probably should have returned for his senior season to improve before going pro. Martin started his career at left guard and was the starter for the Trojans in 2011 and 2012. He moved to center for 2013 and had a quality season. Martin has some athleticism and versatility. He also is strong at the point of attack and can generate a push in the ground game.

  28. Carolina Panthers: Telvin Smith, OLB/S, Florida State
    The Panthers have shown interest in Smith. He could fit in Carolina as either an outside linebacker or a strong safety.

    Smith is a linebacker/safety tweener who is a tremendous athlete. He is very fast and improved over his time at Florida State. Smith led the Seminoles’ defense in tackles in 2013 with 90. He also had two sacks, 9.5 tackles for a loss, four passes broken up and three interceptions. The 6-foot-3, 218-pounder ran a 4.52 40-yard dash at the Combine. For the NFL, he could either add weight for linebacker or drop a few pounds for safety. If Smith does the latter, some teams could view him as a Kam Chancellor-type prospect.

  29. New England Patriots: DaQuan Jones, DT, Penn State
    The Patriots continue to add young talent to the interior of their defensive line.

    The 6-foot-3, 323-pound Jones played well in 2013. He racked up 53 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss and three sacks. Jones has shown nice burst off the snap with some pass-rushing moves to put pressure on the quarterback. In recent years, Penn State has produced a few good defensive tackle prospects in Devon Still and Jordan Hill. Jones started next to Hill in 2012 and recorded 22 tackles with .5 sacks. Jones had eight tackles as a backup in 2011. At the Senior Bowl, he was solid, but unspectacular.

    Pick change; previously Dontae Johnson, CB

  30. San Francisco 49ers: Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
    San Francisco revitalized Glenn Dorsey, but he isn’t signed long term. The 49ers could grab a similar young talent via this draft.

    Johnson (6-2, 308) replaced Michael Brockers in LSU’s starting lineup for 2012 and played well. The sophomore totaled 30 tackles with 10 tackles for a loss, three sacks and one pass broken up. TCU started this year off by double-teaming Johnson with a guard and center on virtually every snap. He still caused some disruption and totaled four tackles with a tackle for a loss.

    In 2013, Johnson notched 35 tackles with nine tackles for a loss, three sacks and an interception. He has a great skill set and is very explosive. Johnson has a lot of upside, but hasn’t produced up to his potential. He is too inconsistent and disappears for stretches.

  31. Denver Broncos: David Yankey, G, Stanford
    The Broncos lost Zane Beadles to Jacksonville, so it makes sense for Denver to grab an interior lineman.

    Yankey moved back to left guard for 2013. He played extremely well on the inside, opening up holes in the ground game and doing a superb job in pass protection. Yankey is very good at pulling to his right and blasting open running lanes.

    The Cardinal rolled over many opponents in 2012, and Yankey did a superb job as a run-blocking left tackle for Stepfan Taylor. Yankey had some struggles against Washington; Notre Dame’s superb defensive line and linebackers battled hard against him with each side getting its share of wins. Yankey did well against Oregon and UCLA late in the year. He made the right decision to return for his senior season before going pro.

    Being back at guard in 2013 was a more natural fit for Yankey as he isn’t an elite enough athlete to be a left tackle. Stanford feels it has a potential 2015 NFL Draft first-round pick in sophomore left tackle Andrus Peat.

    Yankey (6-5, 315) saw time on the right side of the offensive line in 2011 and played well. He did a good job of opening holes for Taylor and protecting Andrew Luck. Yankey moved over to left tackle after Jonathan Martin left for the NFL.

    Pick change; previously Gabe Jackson, G

  32. Minnesota Vikings: Ka’Deem Carey, RB, Arizona
    The Vikings could use a running back behind Adrian Peterson since Toby Gerhart signed with the Jaguars.

    Carey was suspended for the first game of 2013, but was red hot after returning to the lineup. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry for 1,885 yards and 19 touchdowns. Carey also caught 26 passes for 173 yards and a score. He recorded 132 yards on 30 carries against Washington and scored four touchdowns against Colorado. The junior exceeded 100 yards rushing in every game this year – excluding that week he was suspended.

    Carey took college football by storm in 2012 as he led the nation in rushing with 1,929 yards and an average of 6.4 yards per carry. The sophomore scored 23 touchdowns on the ground. Carey also hauled in 36 receptions for 303 yards and a score. He ran for 425 yards and six touchdowns with 15 receptions for 203 yards and two scores in 2011 as a freshman backup.

    The 5-foot-10, 196-pounder is a slasher who has nice quickness and a burst to get into the second level. While Carey isn’t a big back, he has some physicality to him and can pick up yards after contact. Carey had a number of big runs in 2012 after breaking a tackle in the first 10 yards. He isn’t a burner back, so defensive backs can catch him from behind. If Carey can add 10-20 pounds while maintaining his speed, it could help his draft stock.

  33. Pittsburgh Steelers: Shayne Skov, ILB/OLB, Stanford
    The Steelers need linebacker help, and Skov would be a great fit in Pittsburgh.

    Skov spent years as an effective starter for Stanford at inside linebacker. The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder had 62 tackles as a freshman in 2009. He broke out with 84 tackles, nine sacks and two forced fumbles in 2010. The junior only played in three games in 2011 before suffering a season-ending injury.

    Skov was suspended for the first game of 2012 for a DUI arrest. He picked up 80 tackles, 2.5 sacks, eight tackles for a loss and a pass broken up for the year. Skov was rusty coming back from his knee injury, but he helped lead a road upset over Oregon, and from that point on, he finished the season looking better.

    The fifth-year senior totaled 109 tackles with 5.5 sacks, 13 tackles for a loss and four passes broken up in 2013. He had monster games against Washington and Oregon. Skov could fit nicely in a 3-4 defense given the way he rushes the passer and operates in the middle of the field.

  34. Green Bay Packers: Cyril Richardson, G, Baylor
    Green Bay needs to shore up its offensive line depth in case the injury bug bites the team again this year.

    Richardson was largely dominant in 2013. The senior was a tremendous run-blocker for Lache Seastrunk and opened a ton of holes at the point of attack. Richardson’s pass protection was sound as well.

    Richardson did an overall good job of blocking for quarterback Robert Griffin III in 2011. Richardson also did well opening up holes in the ground game for Terrance Ganaway. Richardson started out at guard in 2010 before he moved to tackle as a sophomore. The junior was moved back to guard for 2012.

    The 6-foot-5, 335-pounder played better back on the inside. He was consistent in every phase of the game. Baylor experienced a lot of success running behind him, and he was also reliable in pass protection. Richardson could be most effective at guard in the NFL.

    Pick change; previously Craig Loston, S

  35. Baltimore Ravens: Cameron Fleming, OT, Stanford
    The Ravens grab a right tackle to replace Michael Oher.

    Fleming played well for Stanford in 2013. He was a tough run-blocker and is an improving pass-protector. Fleming had some challenges with Anthony Barr, but Fleming wasn’t a liability going against the best edge rusher in the Pac-12. Fleming would have been better off returning for his senior year and getting better before turning pro.

    Fleming (6-4, 323) broke into the starting lineup in 2011. He had a good season blocking for Andrew Luck and Stepfan Taylor. In 2012, Fleming moved to right tackle and had a good year opening up holes for Taylor.

    Pick change; previously Logan Thomas, QB

  36. San Francisco 49ers: Terrence Brooks, S, Florida State
    The 49ers lost Dontae Whitner in free agency and could use a new safety to pair with Eric Reid.

    The 5-foot-11, 198-pound Brooks had 56 tackles with two interceptions, five passes broken up and two forced fumbles in 2013. He played well for the Seminoles while showing good instincts and a nose for the football. Brooks left the game against Miami with a concussion. That caused him to be held out against Wake Forest. He finished the year well and had a quality week at the Senior Bowl. Brooks was excellent at the Combine and blazed an ultra-fast 40 time of 4.42 seconds.

    In 2012, Brooks led a talented Florida State secondary in tackles while recording 51 tackles, two interceptions, four passes broken up and one forced fumble.
