Does anyone remember Jay Cutler yelling at J’Marcus Webb last year for getting him killed? The Bears have needed better play at the tackle spots for years.
Watson has one of the more unique back stories of any player in the draft. I suggest you check it out.
21) CINCINNATI BENGALS select Eric Reid, S, LSU
I really want to mock Georgia LB Alec Ogletree here because the Bengals have always loved to roll the dice on bad boys, but safety is too glaring of a hole on the roster to ignore.
22) ***Trade*** CINCINNATI BENGALS select Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
Jeff Fisher and Les Snead are making moves again!
St. Louis moved up to get Tavon Austin earlier, and now the Rams are moving out of the first round to pick back up some of what they lost in the trade with the Jets.
Cincinnati needs a running back to take the pressure off Andy Dalton and A.J. Green in the worst way, so they move up in front of Denver and Green Bay to get the guy they want to complete their offense.
23) MINNESOTA VIKINGS select Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee
QB Christian Ponder no longer has Percy Harvin to throw the ball to.
Justin Hunter has an A.J. Green-esque ceiling in the NFL. He’s 6-foot-4, 198 pounds with track and field athleticism. If Hunter had not blown out his knee in 2011, I think he would have been a top-10 pick.
24) INDIANAPOLIS COLTS select Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
The Colts need help at cornerback and Rhodes is a physically imposing prospect at the position.
25) ***Trade*** NEW YORK JETS select Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse
Ok, so maybe the Jets aren’t exactly sold on Sanchez and Tim Tebow.
New GM John Idzik makes a move back into the first round with the Vikings to leap any teams (Jacksonville, cough cough) that may be eyeing a quarterback at the top of round two.
26) GREEN BAY PACKERS select Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
The Packers are growing tiresome of Jermichael Finley so they pick his successor.
Eifert is a decent blocker, but is at his best pulling down jump balls. He will terrorize smaller defensive backs down the seams and has the athletic ability to move out on the perimeter if need be.
27) HOUSTON TEXANS select DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
Andre Johnson has never had the help he’s needed on the other side. Hopkins is one of the most underrated players in this draft. Teammate Sammy Watkins got most of the attention at Clemson, but Hopkins was the more consistent player.
28) DENVER BRONCOS select Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
Elvis Dumervil is no longer on the opposite side of Von Miller. The Broncos don’t have many holes to fill on the roster, but another pass rusher is one of them.
29) NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS select Desmond Trufant, CB, Washignton
Bill Belichick has had trouble finding long term answers at cornerback through the draft, but he’s going to try again.
