25. player. 87. As with nearly every mock draft out there, Carolina addresses its offensive line issues by adding a left tackle. D.J. Humphries is likely a starting left tackle for years to come. His blend of quickness and strength should help him man the position effectively and bring some relief to <strong><a href=. Offensive Tackle. Florida. D.J. Humphries

Washington. Marcus Peters. 26. player. 26. Baltimore’s defense was effective last season, yet couldn’t stop the Patriots’ passing attack in the playoffs last year. In fact, New England ran the ball only 13 times knowing throwing the ball was the way to go. In response to this, Baltimore takes Marcus Peters whose physical nature matches this defense. He will help improve a porous unit and possibly fix the reason for last year’s AFC Championship loss.. Cornerback

Melvin Gordon. 27. player. 123. Dallas relied on its running game last season. They rode <strong><a href=. Running Back. Wisconsin

45. The Broncos lost <strong><a href=. Defensive Tackle. Oklahoma. Jordan Phillips. 28. player

29. player. 46. The Colts need help along the defensive line, so passing on an available Arik Armstead would be crazy. Armstead has slowly impressed more and more scouts, so dropping to 29 may not be realistic, but for now, I’m sticking with this selection as a possibility.. Defensive End. Oregon. Arik Armstead

This selection seems to be the one of the more predictable of this year’s draft, though nothing is ever entirely assured when it comes to the NFL draft. As with my previous drafts, Green Bay rebuilds the middle of its defense by selecting one of this year’s best inside linebackers, Eric Kendricks. What makes this move most appealing is it allows the Packers to move <strong><a href=. Linebacker. UCLA. Eric Kendricks. 30. player. 49

15. As stated before, the Saints continue to build their defense with their selection at 31. Selecting Malcom Brown will help New Orleans complete their offensive line. As a highly versatile lineman, Brown can fit just about any scheme. Pairing him with <strong><a href=. Defensive Tackle. Texas. Malcom Brown. 31. player

32. player. 47. New England’s secondary has been torn apart this offseason and now looks more like its 2013 form versus last year’s strength. Byron Jones is an athletic defensive back who will help ameliorate the Patriots’ secondary situation. Bill Belichick will enjoy Jones’ quality character and versatility as he could play both cornerback and safety at the next level. Selecting at least one player for the secondary seems to make sense, and especially early on.. Cornerback. Connecticut. Byron Jones
