21. Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
The first of three South Carolina prospects in a row, Gilmore has the length, speed and instincts to be a phenomenal cornerback early on in his career.
22. Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
I never moved Jeffery too low when others were down on him. I'd like to welcome them back to the Jeffery-in-the-first-round bandwagon. Jeffery is a huge target that doesn't need to separate to be considered open.
23. Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina
I'm not a big fan of Ingram's game. I recognize his skills, but I'm not sure where he ends up playing in the NFL. He could be a star or a bust. I just wouldn't take him too highly.
24. Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
Tannehill will almost certainly go in the Top 10 picks due to positional scarcity, but he isn't a Top 10 talent, yet anyway. He certainly has all the tools to become a franchise quarterback within a year or two.
25. Dont’a Hightower, LB, Alabama
Hightower was a relentless edge-rusher on passing downs while playing a solid inside linebacker on run downs for Alabama. Hybrid teams could use Hightower in a variety of positions.
26. Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
Martin has helped make things easier for Andrew Luck these last three years. I'm not sure he is a left tackle in the NFL; otherwise, I would put him in the Top 15.
27. Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
Jenkins' talent warrants a much higher ranking, but his character concerns, well, concern me. A late first-round pick is just the right amount of risk on a great corner like Jenkins.
28. Mark Barron, S, Alabama
Barron is the lone true safety to garner a first-round grade from me. He isn't Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu, but he is decent in coverage and excellent against the run.
29. Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
Brockers has a Top 10 body with third-round tape. Teams are going to be drafting somewhat of a project. Some might be comfortable with that earlier than others.
30. Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin
The opposite of Brockers, Konz has fantastic tape, but has had some serious health issues in the past, including blood clots in his lungs and multiple ankle injuries.
31. Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin
Zeitler is perhaps the best run-blocking guard in the draft, including DeCastro. If he can improve his pass-blocking, he will be a perennial Pro Bowler.
32. Kelechi Osomele, OL, Iowa State
Osemele was a fantastic LT at Iowa State, but will be due for a position change in the NFL. He told me he wants to play tackle, but I think his best position will be guard.
33. Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
Adams' stock has fallen a bit as of late after a disappointing 19 bench-press repetitions at the NFL Scouting Combine. Combined with some soft play on tape, there is a cause for concern there.
34. Zach Brown, LB, North Carolina
Brown is an incredible athlete playing football. Teams looking for a "WILL" in a Tampa-2 system will like what they see with Brown.
35. Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall
Curry is a wonderful football player that has a great motor and is a coach's dream. Unfortunately, he just isn't a freak athlete. His ceiling isn't super-high, but he will be a very solid addition to nearly any NFL team.
36. Jerel Worthy, DL, Michigan State
Worthy has the ability to penetrate and make a couple of impact plays per game. Unfortunately, the consistency isn't there. If he played his best all four quarters, he would certainly get looks in the Top 10.
37. Lamar Miller, RB, Miami
Miller is an explosive runner that isn't quite as polished as a guy like Trent Richardson or Doug Martin. His ceiling is incredibly high.
38. Brandon Thompson, DL, Clemson
Thompson is a versatile lineman that plays in the backfield. A one-gap 3-4 team or a 4-3 team looking for a penetrating DL will snatch Thompson in the first 50 picks.
39. Jared Crick, DT, Nebraska
If Crick hadn't been injured the majority of the 2011 season, he would be considered a first-round lock. If he is good to go medically, Crick can help 3-4 or 4-3 teams.
40. Jayron Hosley, CB, Virginia Tech
Hosley is a ball-hawk who supports the run better than his small frame would indicate. He looks like he has Asante Samuel upside.
