25. player. 87. The Panthers need a tackle worse than any team in the NFL, but the thought of Dorial Green-Beckham across from Kelvin Benjamin proves to be to enticing to pass up.. Wide Receiver. Missouri/Oklahoma. Dorial Green-Beckham

The second running back comes off the board and is going to give the Ravens a very good pair of backs in Melvin Gordon and Justin Forsett.. Running Back. Wisconsin. Melvin Gordon. 26. player. 26

123. The best safety in this class finally comes off the board and is headed to the big D. A good tackler and solid player in coverage will help Dallas when playing against the Giants and the Eagles.. Safety. Alabama. Landon Collins. 27. player

D.J. Humphries. 28. player. 45. When your best player is Peyton Manning, the number one job you have is keeping him upright so he can make plays. D.J. Humphries could end up being the best tackle of this class.. Offensive Tackle. Florida

46. The additions of Frank Gore and Andre Johnson that give the Colts another year to get the defense where it needs to be to compete for a title. They need a linebacker and there are two who are first round worthy. The Colts pick Benardrick McKinney in this mock. He’s a big run-stuffing linebacker who can instantly come in and start.. Linebacker. Mississippi State. Benardrick McKinney. 29. player

49. Since the Colts selected McKinney, the Packers happily select Eric Kendricks to fill the hole left by A.J. Hawk. Kendricks is the best coverage linebacker in this draft, and this happens to be exactly what the Packers need.. Linebacker. UCLA. Eric Kendricks. 30. player

15. Shocker? Not really when you think about it. Drew Brees might have two good years left and the front office already said they may draft his successor early in the draft. We’ve already heard rumors of a rebuild going on in New Orleans, so why not draft a quarterback who is a lot like Brees coming out of college (other than the height) for the man himself to train?. Quarterback. Baylor. Bryce Petty. 31. player

Devin Funchess. 32. player. 47. The Patriots need to fill the void left by Darrelle Revis, but is this team ever going to get Tom Brady a receiver who isn’t 76 years old? Devin Funchess gives him another huge body in the red zone and they could use him in the same way they did Aaron Hernandez, having him coming out of the backfield or setting him up on screens.. Wide Receiver/Tight End. Michigan
