6. Atlanta Falcons
Jake Matthews

The Falcons did a great deal to add to their new 3-4 defense in free agency. Adding a solid tackle like Matthews allows them to build the interior of their explosive offense. Matthews should get put in at left tackle at some point and left there for as long as he is healthy. He may not ever overwhelm those watching film but he shows enough that he is a franchise left tackle.

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Aaron Donald

The Bucs think about picking up Bortles but Lovie Smith decides to finish up his defense with a big powerful DT in Donald who has shot up boards since the Senior Bowl and shouldn’t be a shock being found here at this point.

8. Minnesota Vikings
Blake Bortles

With Matt Cassell returning the Vikings can bring in Bortles to sit and learn fora  year or two before giving him the reigns. His downfield passing is perfect for a Norv Turner offense. With the Vikings moving outside they need to have a bigger stronger QB to cut through the cold winds.

9. Buffalo Bills
Mike Evans

The Bills need to give their franchise QB that they drafted in the first round last year a chance. They do so by adding Evans to pair with Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods. Evans isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but with the Bills he provides a big target that is currently missing.

10. Detroit Lions
Anthony Barr

Barr lit it up in his Pro Day and the Lions will like having him attacking off the edge and playing in space behind that defensive line. Barr can put his hand down but should fit in as a strong side linebacker for the Lions.
