17. player. 13. The Chargers are rebuilding their offensive line, and as much as many pundits will point to running back after losing Ryan Matthews, the Chargers need to protect Philip Rivers. Ereck Flowers will bring some stability to the Chargers line, which already possesses great flexibility. D.J. Fluker could kick inside and match with newly acquired Orlando Franklin at guard. Chris Watt now mans the center position while Flowers and King Dunlap would bookend the line. After much instability in 2014, the offensive line’s amorphous days are over.. Offensive Tackle. Miami (Fla.). Ereck Flowers

After losing Rodney Hudson to the Oakland Raiders, the Chiefs are now in serious need of help within the offensive line’s interior. Erving’s versatility can help fill the need at center while also giving the team an option of moving him to tackle if need be. But as the draft’s best center prospect, grabbing Erving here gives the Chiefs some seriously needed help.. Center. Florida State. Cameron Erving. 18. player. 124

Eddie Goldman. 19. player. 53. The Browns need an effective nose tackle in the middle of the defense. Once upon a time the Browns invested in Phil Taylor, but a few injuries have derailed his career. Goldman can help upgrade the rush defense significantly, which is especially important considering the running backs the Browns face in the AFC North: Le’Veon Bell, Jeremy Hill, and Justin Forsett. Goldman will also eat up multiple blockers, which will make things easier for the ends and linebackers alike.. Defensive Tackle. Florida State

54. Based on the offseason thus far and the likelihood that the Eagles trade out of this pick, predicting this pick is near impossible and maybe even pointless. That said, if the Eagles do in fact retain this selection grabbing the draft’s best safety in Collins seems like a great idea. He’s a playmaker who will create turnovers and can play downhill against the run; he actually embraces it. The Eagles’ defense is pretty well stacked. Adding a legit safety helps nearly complete the group, at least on paper.. Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins. 20. player

The Bengals could go with the best player available considering their roster, which could lead them to several different selections. Yet, Malcom Brown is arguably the best player available here and solves a need simultaneously. He’s a disruptor in the middle of the line who also possesses versatility, something the Bengals also covet in their prospects. Putting Brown alongside Geno Atkins would ensure the Bengals’ defensive line returns to its dominant form. It also finally gives Atkins a partner in the middle who’ll command as much attention as he does. It’ll take the pressure off of Atkins and allow him to regain his pre-ACL injury form.. Defensive Tackle. Texas. Malcom Brown. 21. player. 56

Defensive End. Kentucky. Alvin Dupree. 22. player. 55. The Steelers are revamping their defense, which has always relied on the play of its linebackers. Dupree would give the Steelers a running mate to match Jarvis Jones on the outside. Dupree possesses uber-athleticism and should prove capable of defending the pass also. He should fit the Steelers’ scheme well.

Georgia. Todd Gurley. 23. player. 50. The Lions’ roster is pretty strong even considering its been purged to a degree this offseason. Their offense relies on its passing game largely, so protecting Matthew Stafford has to be paramount. The Lions can do so by adding an offensive lineman, but I still think the way to go is to actually install a <a href=. Running Back

Wisconsin. Melvin Gordon. 24. player. 32. Gordon would give the Cardinals the ground game they need if they are going to try and conquer the Seahawks out west. The passing game will remain secondary, as Carson Palmer’s health is always in question and he’s not a dominant thrower. Gordon would help improve the offense and passing game much in the way Gurley will for the Lions. With a talented roster, the Cardinals can afford to take a running back early.. Running Back
