Letís continue with the mock draft, taking in the last third of the first round.
21. Cincinnati Bengals select Kendall Wright, wide receiver from Baylor: Robert Griffin IIIís former toy will help fellow young receiver A.J. Green make the Bengalsí offence explosive.
22. Cleveland Browns select Stephon Gilmore, cornerback from South Carolina: They would love Wright, but also love the idea of Gilmore playing alongside Joe Haden.
23. Detroit Lions select Rueben Randle, wide receiver from Louisiana State: After hitting on Titus Young a few years ago, the Lions add Randle and make their receiving corps (possibly) the best in the league.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers select Fletcher Cox, defensive tackle from Mississippi State: They will be overjoyed if Cox falls this far. An absolute beast, he will help replace Casey Hampton down the line.
25. Denver Broncos select Devon Still, defensive tackle from Penn State: With Still in the middle and Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller rushing off the edge, the Broncosí D will be ferocious.
26. Houston Texans select Whitney Mercilus, defensive end from Illinois: After losing Mario Williams in free agency, the Texans have a huge hole on the line. The combination of Mercilus and last yearís first-round pick J.J. Watt will help.
27. New England Patriots select Mike Adams, offensive tackle from Ohio State: Adams may not start right away in New England, but he will certainly take over when Matt Light leaves.
28. Green Bay Packers select Janoris Jenkins, cornerback from North Alabama: A potential risk this high, but the Packers need to get younger (and better) on defence. This will help.
29. Baltimore Ravens select Coby Fleener, tight end from Stanford: The Ravens have solid tight ends, but if Fleener falls this far, they need to make the move.
30. San Francisco 49ers select Andre Branch, defensive end from Clemson: A depth pick here again, the Niners make the move to replace the aging (but still effective) Justin Smith.
31. New England Patriots select Nick Perry, defensive end from Southern California: The Pats need help with their pass rush. With his size, Perry should be good both against the run and pass.
32. New York Giants select Peter Konz, centre from Wisconsin: The Super Bowl champs have a few other holes to fill, but Konz will help ease the transition if the team moves away from Shaun OíHara.
As this is the last article of the year, I would just like to say thanks for reading this year, and I hope you enjoy the draft!
