11. Tennessee Titans
Teddy Bridgewater

The Titans could look to upgrade their defense for Ray Horton but find Bridgewater as the highest grade and Jake Locker hasn’t done anything to show that he is the top level guy. Whisenhunt brings in his guy for the future.

12. New York Giants
Taylor Lewan

Tom Coughlin has issues with players with issues but Lewan is a high grade tackle that can protect Eli Manning and open up running lanes.

13. St. Louis Rams
Justin Gilbert

After getting their offensive some help the Rams get the top rated corner in the draft in Gilbert. The Rams front 7 is solid to great but needs some help on the back end. Dix would be a perfect fit but is already off the board.

14. Chicago Bears
Darqueze Dennard

The Bears could easily go with Aaron Donald but instead get some youth in their defensive backfield with the physical Dennard. Dennard’s style of play fits the Chicago Bears heritage perfectly.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers
Aaron Donald

The Steelers take the best player left on the board, one who could go off much earlier. The Cowboys could look to move up to this spot to get Donald but we aren’t projecting any trades. Donald can attack from any position in the front 3 of the Steelers and be good at it.
