23. player. 50. Detroit needs to make revamping the tackle spot a priority in this offseason. With Peat falling to 23, this one was a no-brainer. Matthew Stafford can’t succeed if Detroit doesn’t add a quality tackle with upside.. OT. Stanford. Andrus Peat

Auburn. Sammie Coates. 24. player. 32. Arizona needs a receiver, and Coates could be one of the biggest sleepers of this WR class. This is a pick not only for the present, but for the future of this franchise.. WR

25. player. 87. Carolina has to address the tackle spot in the first round if a player that matches Flowers’ upside is available. I have some concerns about the former Hurricanes standout, but he’s less of a risk at 25.. OT. Miami (FL). Ereck Flowers

26. player. 26. I’ll admit that I need to watch a bit more tape here. However, I like what I see from Funchess on first glance. Other opinions from other respected analysts make me comfortable making this selection for Baltimore. They need another playmaker if Torrey Smith doesn’t return.. WR. Michigan. Devin Funchess

123. Dawson is one of my favorites in this class. He has the ability to play every linebacker spot with his instincts and overall ability once he hits the field. Dallas needs help in their linebacking corps, something Dawson can provide.. LB. TCU. Paul Dawson. 27. player

Eddie Goldman. 28. player. 45. It’s still hard to project this selection for multiple reasons. Defensive tackle is a safe spot to go here — it’s no secret that this squad needs help up the middle.. DT. Florida State

29. player. 46. A running back is going in the first round, and the Colts give us a perfect fit. They have some uncertainties in the backfield; and while I like Boom Herron, I have to think that Indianapolis wants to add another weapon to help out Andrew Luck’s balance.. RB. Wisconsin. Melvin Gordon

Denzel Perryman. 30. player. 49. With Paul Dawson gone, Perryman became the obvious selection here. The Miami superstar fits well with a Green Bay team that has to address their issues in the middle of the defense.. ILB. Miami (FL)

Cam Erving. 32. player. 47. A safe pick if there ever was one. Here’s a selection that all New England fans can get behind.. OL. Florida State
