3 of 4

Nov 29, 2014; Louisville, KY, USA; Louisville Cardinals wide receiver DeVante Parker (9) runs the ball against Kentucky Wildcats defensive tackle Cory Johnson (67) during the second half at Papa John

11. Minnesota Vikings

Louisville. DeVante Parker. 11. player. 60. The Vikings will look to build around <strong><a href=. Wide Receiver

12. Cleveland Browns

<a title=. QB. Oregon. Marcus Mariota. 12. player. 53

13. New Orleans Saints

Michigan St.. Trae Waynes. 13. player. 15. The Saints have needs on defense before an off-season where they traded <a href=. CB

14. Miami Dolphins

14. player. 59. The Dolphins just cut a number of receivers but decide not to risk it here. They likely will get one in free agency. Instead they go with <strong><a href=. Linebacker. Washington. Shaq Thompson

15. San Francisco 49ers

<a href=. Linebacker. Missouri. Shane Ray. 15. player. 42

16. Houston Texans

Offensive Tackle. Stanford. Andrus Peat. 16. player. 10. The Texans are a run-first team and will build around that. After putting a lot of draft picks into their defense, they get Peat here. Peat’s size and quick feet make him an ideal pick here.

17. San Diego Chargers

17. player. 13. The Chargers first have to decide what they will do with their Franchise QB. A trade with the Titans has been mentioned and makes a lot of sense. They have been trying to replace LT for years and <a href=. RB. Georgia. Todd Gurley

18. Kansas City Chiefs

18. player. 124. At some point the Chiefs will have to get a No. 1 receiver. At some point <strong><a href=. Wide Receiver. Oklahoma. Dorial Green-Beckham

19. Cleveland Browns (via Buffalo Bills)

53. The Browns biggest need is at the nose tackle position. <a href=. Defensive Tackle. Washington. Danny Shelton. 19. player

20. Philadelphia Eagles

Most believe that Chip Kelly will try to trade up for Mariota and that is possible. Here we have Kelly taking another former Duck. <strong><a href=. Defensive End. Oregon. Arik Armstead. 20. player. 54
