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. 


65. St. Louis Rams: Jerome Murphy - A

A physical corner perfect for Spagz' style of play.

66. Detroit Lions: Amari Spievey - A

Only knock is speed, and with Suh he won’t have to cover long.

67. Tampa Bay Bucs: Myron Lewis - A

Perfect marriage of fit, need, and value.

68. Kansas City Chiefs: Jon Asamoah - A

Should start from day one.

69. Oakland Raiders: Jared Veldheer - B

A bit of a reach but good upside for a third round pick.

70. Baltimore Ravens: Ed Dickson - A

Joe Flacco needs chain movers and Ray Rice needs blockers.

71. Green Bay Packers: Morgan Burnett - B

Good value but had other, more glaring needs.

72. Buffalo Bills: Alex Carrington - B+

The Bills continue their transition to the 3-4.

73. Miami Dolphins: John Jerry - A

Lunch pail guard for lunch pail franchise. O-line is built to run block.

74. Jacksonville Jaguars: D’Anthony Smith - C

The Jags front office has no clue.

75. Chicago Bears: Major Wright - A

Could start from day one.

76. New York Giants: Chad Jones - B+

You gotta love how Jerry Reese always attacks his team’s weaknesses.

77. Tennessee Titans: Damian Williams - A

Perfect slot guy and return man for Titans team devoid of both.

78. Carolina Panthers: Brandon LaFell - A-

The effort to compliment Steve Smith sadly continues.

79. San Diego Chargers: Donald Butler - A

Perfect marriage of need, value, and fit.

80. Denver Broncos: J.D. Walton - A

Should start from day one. 

81. Houston Texans: Earl Mitchell - B

A need since Amobi Okoye can’t stop going backwards.

82. Pittsburgh Steelers: Emmanuel Sanders - B-

Slight reach but great fit. Him and Wallace will burn turf.

83. Atlanta Falcons: Corey Peters - B+

Good depth and insurance for Peria Jerry.

84. Cincinnati Bengals: Jordan Shipley - D

They have enough WRs now and Shipley is too old and slow to go this high.

85. Cleveland Browns: Colt McCoy - A

No lose situation for Browns unless McCoy goes Brian Brohm.

86. Philadelphia Eagles: Daniel Te’o-Nesheim - B

Eagles are gearing up to attack on defense. Still thin in secondary.

87. Denver Broncos: Eric Decker - A

The effort to replace Marshall continues.

88. Arizona Cardinals: Andre Roberts - B+

A possible steal but, even so, will he see field on deep Cardinals team?

89. Carolina Panthers: Armanti Edwards - C

A great pick but the Panthers paid a fortune in the trade for him. Bad business.

90. New England Patriots: Taylor Price - A

Great class, and not because they got picks for next years draft like last few years.

91. San Francisco 49ers: Navarro Bowman - B+

Won’t start but good rotational player and nickel LB.

92. Cleveland Browns: Shawn Lauvao - A

Makings of a nasty offensive line, should start at RG right away.

93. Kansas City Chiefs: Tony Moeaki - B

Raw and slight reach but great weapon for creative coaches Haley and Weis.

94. Indianapolis Colts: Kevin Thomas - A

A Colts-type player, fills a huge need area.

95. New Orleans: Jimmy Graham - A

Can let him sit for 2 years while he learns under Shockey. Elite ceiling.

96. Cincinnati Bengals: Brandon Ghee - D

Won't supplant starters and not physically suited to play the slot.

97. Tennessee Titans: Ronnie Curran - A

Poor man’s Bullock.

98. Atlanta Falcons: Mike Johnson - A

Falcons have a young, smart cohesive line. Johnson will be perfect for it.
