17. Pittsburgh SteelersJarvis Jones OLB, Georgia     A+

Best value in the draft. Steelers steal a top 5 player in the draft. Will take Harrisons spot and run with it.

18. San Fransisco 49ersEric Reid S, LSU     C+

Didn’t think SF should have traded up in a safety deep draft. Reid wasn’t rated in my top 40, little bit of a reach.

19. New York GiantsJustin Pugh OT/OG, Syracuse     C-

The Giants reached on a position when they had bigger needs at LB and CB.

20. Chicago BearsKyle Long OG/OT, Oregon     C-

See Giants. Long was a 2nd round player and with Floyd and Eifert on the boards, it was a reach.

21. Cincinnati BengalsTyler Eifert TE, Notre Dame     A

Love this pick. Eifert is easily the BPA available and gives Dalton another weapon that he needs on offense.

22. Atlanta Falcons (from Washington)Desmond Trufant CB, Washington     B

The Falcons needed a CB and Trufant fits their need. I had Rhodes rated higher though.

23. Minnesota VikingsSharrif Floyd DT, Florida     A-

Great value here for the Vikings. I’m not as high on Floyd as others, but he fits a need beside Kevin Williams.

24. Indianapolis ColtsBjoern Werner DE/OLB, Florida State     B-

I’m not sure Werner fits their scheme, but he is a hard worker and has a good motor.

25. Minnesota Vikings (from Seattle)Xavier Rhodes CB, Florida State     B+

Another great pick by the Vikings. He will take over as their #1 CB and is physical enough to cover Marshall and Johnson.

26. Green Bay PackersDatone Jones DE/DT, UCLA     A-

Good value at a need position. He can keep blockers off the LB and let them get to the QB.

27. Houston TexansDeAndre Hopkins WR, Clemson     B+

The Texans have needed a #2 WR for a long time. They finally got one. I had Patterson higher, but Hopkins is more NFL ready.

28. Denver BroncosSylvester Williams DT, North Carolina     B+

Good Value here. The Broncos needed a DT and Williams is a disruptive player.

29. Minnesota VikingsCordarrelle Patterson WR, Tennessee     A-

3rd great pick of the day for the Vikings. Patterson can take Harvins spot and do all the things he did.

30. St. Louis RamsAlec Ogletree OLB, Gerogia     A+

One of the best values of the draft. Ogletree will play WLB right away and be a playmaker.

31. Dallas CowboysTravis Frederick OC, Wisconsin     F

I just don’t understand this pick. A 3rd round player. Jerry Jones has outdone himself this time.

32. Baltimore RavensMatt Elam S, Florida     B

Good pick to take over for Ed Reed. He is a little short, but can make plays all over the field.
