16. St. Louis Rams
Kenny Vacarro, S, Texas
The Rams are keeping their fingers crossed for either Tavon Austin or Cordarelle Patterson to still be on the board here. They also have the safety from Texas very highly rated and could be just as happy to see him available for this pick to help shore up the secondary.
17. Pittsburg Steelers
Jarvis Jones, DE, Georgia
Jarvis Jones would be a great pick here for the Steelers if he was still on the board this late. He was a two-time all-american for the Bulldogs. Over his senior season he tallied 24 tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks, 1 pick, 7 forced fumbles, and 2 fumble recoveries. “Dawg Bones” Jones would be an excellent fit for the 3-4 in Pittsburgh.
18. Dallas Cowboys
Shariff Floyd, DT, Florida
Floyd is a fringe top 10 pick. If he fell to the Cowboys I couldn’t imagine they be anything less than ecstatic. They have needs on the offensive line and safety but with the top lineman already off the board and the top safety already gone, I believe they find tremendous value in Shariff Floyd here at 18.
19. New York Giants
Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
Sheldon Richardson is a force to be reckoned with. He could go a lot higher but I have him falling into a very good spot for him here with the Giants. The Giants have had some really good draft picks lately with Jason Pierre-Paul, Hakeem Nicks, and David Wilson. I expect Jerry Reese to do his homework as always and Sheldon Richardson would be very good on this defensive line that already has some really good players on it.
20. Chicago Bears
Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia
The Chicago Bears will be looking to replace longtime Bear and future hall-of-famer Brian Urlacher. They started the offseason with needs on the offensive line and at tight end but have addressed their needs well in free agency with the additions of Martellus Bennett and Jermon Bushrod. Olgetree is a top talent in this draft but falls due to his recent DUI, but the Bears may find their long-term replacement for Urlacher if he falls.
