I am one of the Senior Editors of NFLdraftbible.com and one of the primary draft analysts. I have run hundreds of scouting reports for this year's draft.

The most insightful and in-depth coverage can be found on our website, where we run live interviews and podcasts and have up to date news and analysis. I was "discovered" writing for BR, so I am posting a few things during the draft as a Thank You. 

33. St. Louis Rams- Roger Saffold- A

With bookend tackles, Bradford will be safe.

34. Minnesota Vikings- Chris Cook- C

Fills a huge need, but Cook does not play with consistency or aggression.

35. Tampa Bay Bucs- Brian Price- A

A perfect compliment to McCoy and fits in their cover 2 scheme.

36. Kansas City Chiefs- Dexter McCluster- B

A reach, but perfect for a creative offensive team devoid of weapons.

37. Philadelphia Eagles- Nate Allen- B+

Hope he enjoys replacing Brian Dawkins and Donavon McNabb at the same time.

38. Cleveland Browns- T.J. Ford- B

Fills a need but a reach. Proves Mangini and Holmgren are simpatico on the draft.

39. Tampa Bay Bucs- Arrelious Benn- B

Nice to give Josh Freeman weapons, but Benn lacks instincts.

40. Miami Dolphins- Koa Misi- B+

Lunch pail pass rusher for lunch pail team. OLB in their 3-4. 

41. Buffalo Bills- Terrel Troup- B

A bit of a reach for the NT, but fills a huge need for a team going 3-4.

42. New England Patriots- Rob Gronkowski- A

Tom Brady has a new best friend.

43. Baltimore Ravens- Sergio Kindle- B-

Great talent and fit, but his health is a HUGE concern.

44. Oakland Raiders- Lamarr Houston- A

Before Al Davis was crazy he was a genius, sometimes it comes through.

45. Denver Broncos- Zane Beadles- C-

McDaniels needs to stop reaching.

46. New York Giants- Linval Joseph- A-

Perfect marriage of need, value and fit. Jerry Reese kind of guy.

47. Arizona Cardinals- Daryl Washington- B-

Undersized for a 3-4 but should replace some explosion lost with Dansby.

48. Carolina Panthers- Jimmy Clausen- A

Has the talent to save John Fox's job.

49. San Francisco 49ers- Taylor Mays- B

Niners are getting very physical, however Mays is a whinny underachiever.

50. Kansas City Chiefs- Javier Areanas- B

Good fit on special teams and as slot defender. Tad bit of a reach.

51. Minnesota Vikings- Toby Gerhart- A

The perfect compliment to Adrian Peterson.

52. Pittsburgh Steelers- Jason Worilds- A-

Perfect fit in Steelers D and provides great depth.

53.  New England Patriots- Jermaine Cunningham- A-

Finally the Patriots draft a pass rusher.

54. Cincinnati Bengals- Carlos Dunlap- C

Great value, but proof the Bengals just doesn’t get it. Oxymoron I know.

55. Dallas Cowboys- Sean Lee- D

Can’t stay healthy and really undersized for a 3-4 without a traditional nose.

56. Green Bay Packers- Mike Neal- B

Great 3-4 end prospect for Dom Capers. Needs a fire lit under his butt.

57. Baltimore Ravens- Terrence Cody- A

The thought of Halotti Ngata and Terrence Cody together, just yikes.

58. Houston Texans- Ben Tate- B

Could have had Gerhart but Tate is no slouch. Great fit.

59. Cleveland Browns- Montario Hardesty- B

Great fit next to Harrison, but his health is a concern.

60. Seattle Seahawks- Golden Tate- A

Pete Carroll is having a legendary draft so far.

61. New York Jets- Vlad Ducasse- A

Faneca is at the end and the Jets love to maul in the run game.

62. New England Patriots- Brandon Spikes- B

A bit high, but he is a perfect compliment for Mayo as a two down thumper at ILB.

63. Indianapolis Colts- Patrick Angerer- C

A reach. 

64. New Orleans Saints- Charles Brown- B+

Great value if healthy. Nice to see Saints make protecting Brees a priority.
