11. Tennessee Titans
Darqueze Dennard

The Titans need to beef up their secondary and Dennard fits the physical profile that they like, small guys who can hit. The Titans have their pick here of guys who could fill voids on either side of the ball but Dennard gives the the most bang for their buck.

12. New York Giants
Justin Gilbert

Taylor Lewan was the pick here in the last Mock but with his off the field problems making it to court Gilbert moves up one spot. The Giants could go in any number of directions here including offensive line, wide receiver or linebacker. Gilbert’s off-season has shot him up the rankings.

13. St. Louis Rams
Ha-Ha Clinton Dix

Ha-Ha Clinton Dix is a popular pick in this spot and with Gilbert off the board the Rams go with him here. Dix could be looked at in a negative light given the history of Alabama players but Fisher looks to get the back end of his secondary in good shape after taking Watkins for the offense earlier.

14. Chicago Bears
Louis Nix

The Bears would love to see Donald fall, taken by their old coach in Tampa Bay, but instead they ended up with Notre Dame product Nix here. Still a beefy defensive tackle is just what the doctor ordered in Chicago. A safety could also be a pick here with Dix still on the board.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers
C.J. Mosley

The Steelers could go in a number of direction, including safety or corner, but with the top two corners off the board go with the safe pick in Mosley. Mosley pairs with Jarvis Jones as the future of the historic and vaunted part of the Steelers defense. Mosley is just the type of intelligent instinctual player that can excel in that defense.
