21. Green Bay Packers
Bradley Roby, CB

Roby was electric at the Combine and has a history of high quality play. The Packers could look in a number of directions on defense or at tight end, say Jace Amaro, here. Roby’s ceiling and the Packers defensive needs win out though.

22. Philadelphia Eagles
CJ Mosley, LB

The Eagles defense needs help, especially in the defensive backfield. Mosley isn’t a need pick but Chip Kelly isn’t a typical person and will draft who he wants. Kelly’s connection with Nick Saban at Alabama could play a role as well. Defenders should be the primary target for the Eagles entire draft.

23. Kansas City Chiefs
Kelvin Benjamin, WR

The Chiefs have a bunch of smaller players pair with Dwayne Bowe. Benjamin is not a small player, he is huge. He struggles with route running and drops balls he should catch but is something the Chiefs do not have on offense. Andy Reid will coach him up and Alex Smith throws a ball that is catchable enough. Reid could be tempted by Derek Carr here as well, check his Eagles history of stockpiling QBs.

24. Cincinnati Bengals
Calvin Pryor, S

The Bengals have a good defense and good offense. They just seem to be missing once piece on each side. The Bengals are betting Andy Dalton will develop into that piece on offense and add Pryor as their backend defender. Adding Pryor to an already dominate defense is a huge upgrade that could bring the team together. Josh Gordon of the Browns burnt the secondary a number of times and Pryor can help there immediately.

25. San Diego Chargers
Jordan Matthews, WR

The Chargers could look at DBs here but instead pair Keenan Allen with the bigger Matthews giving Philip Rivers a pair of young talent to develop with. A long term Antonio Gates replacement, Amaro or Ebron, would be options as well.
