16. Jacksonville Jaguars: Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA
Unlike virtually every other outside linebacker in this Draft, Ayers' primary skill is not rushing the passer. He does that well, too, having brought down the quarterback four times this season, but Ayers is even better in space on his side of the line of scrimmage: He makes a ton of tackles in the running game and has six interceptions over the past two seasons.
17. New England Patriots: J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
Watt is athletic, smooth and remarkably long for a defensive lineman. He is big enough to play tackle in a number of sets, which means he will have the size the Pats need as a 3-4 end.
18. San Diego Chargers: Robert Quinn, DE, UNC
Quinn is a speed demon who also has the size to stay at defensive end. That comes in handy for San Diego, but they may still stand him up and rush him off the opposite edge from Shaun Phillips. Either way, that is a pass rush opponents will hate to face.
19. New York Giants: Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
Lewis is in the Ayers mode, a guy who floats and makes plays, exactly the kind of guy Tom Coughlin's defense needed more of this season. Lewis would eliminate the need to run the chaotic three-safety sets upon which the team relied late in the season.
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
Tampa runs a 4-3 that requires more rush to be generated by the line itself, a task at which their incumbents failed last season. Kerrigan would bring a speed rushing element to the line, yet has the size (20 pounds bigger than Von Miller) to actually play every down at defensive end.
21. Seattle Seahawks: Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
Gabbert has declared for the Draft, which should excite Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and his staff: Matt Hasselbeck might be done and Charlie Whitehurst hardly looks to be the answer. Gabbert could start right away in Seattle.
