The Falcons aggressively move to give Matt Ryan another awesome game-changing target opposite Roddy White.
1 7 Aldon Smith 49ers DE Missouri
The Niners strike gold with a great edge pass rusher built for their 3-4. Smith was a fast riser.
1 8 Jake Locker Titans QB Washington
The Titans couldn't go with Rusty Smith. They get an exciting athlete to move on from Vince Young.

This was a much-anticipated pick. The Cowboys wisely land the draft's best all-around tackle to fill a big need.
1 10 Blaine Gabbert Jaguars (from Washington) QB Missouri
By trading up, G.M. Gene Smith obviously is ready to replace David Garrard in the near future.
1 11 J.J. Watt Texans DE Wisconsin
He's the prototypical 3-4 end to help Wade Phillips rebuild a mess of a defense. Great pick.
1 12 Christian Ponder Vikings QB Florida State
The Vikings continue the theme of QB-desperate teams getting their man early. Ponder will get a chance to start right away.
1 13 Nick Fairley Lions DT Auburn
The Lions apparently want to have a dominant pair of defensive tackles by adding him alongside Ndamukong Suh. Big surprise.
1 14 Robert Quinn Rams OLB North Carolina
The Rams get a real steal here in a well-built, explosive edge pass rusher who will be an instant star at 4-3 end.
1 15 Mike Pouncey Dolphins C Florida
Maurkice's twin brother gives the Dolphins a much-needed interior blocking boost, including more pop in the running game.

As a high-effort player and relentless pass rusher, he's a good end/outside linebacker hybrid to fit the Redskins' versatile scheme.
1 17 Nate Solder Patriots (from Oakland) T Colorado
The Patriots get a very an athletic lineman to help them better protect Tom Brady. They liked him over Anthony Castonzo.
1 18 Corey Liuget Chargers DT Illinois
He's a disruptive interior lineman who makes plenty of plays in the backfield. It's just a surprise he went to a 3-4 team.
1 19 Prince Amukamara Giants CB Nebraska
The Giants catching this sliding corner and get great value here. He can be a physical force on their back line.
1 20 Adrian Clayborn Buccaneers DE Iowa
The Bucs had him high on their board, and he'll be a nice addition to Raheem Morris' defensive line next to Gerald McCoy.
1 21 Phil Taylor Browns (from Kansas City) DT Baylor
The Browns trade up to get this massive prospect, the clear-cut best nose tackle in the entire class. He'll eat up a lot of space.
1 22 Anthony Castonzo Colts T Boston College
The Colts, namely Peyton Manning, should be happy Castonzo fell this far to give them a much-needed pass-protection upgrade.
1 23 Danny Watkins Eagles T Baylor
The Eagles get a rock of an interior lineman, and at age 26, he's mature and well seasoned, ready to start for Andy Reid.
1 24 Cameron Jordan Saints DE California
The Saints recognized he was falling too far and make Gregg Williams ecstatic by getting this versatile pass rusher who will start.
1 25 James Carpenter Seahawks T Alabama
This is a bit head-scratching with players such as Jimmy Smith and Andy Dalton available. The Seahawks think running game here.
1 26 Jon Baldwin Chiefs (from Atlanta through Cleveland) WR Pittsburgh
The Chiefs are hoping that he'll be similar to former Pitt star Larry Fitzgerald and look great opposite Dwayne Bowe.
1 27 Jimmy Smith Ravens (passed from pick 26) CB Colorado
The Ravens go for a speedy corner who fills a considerable defensive need. They're confident his character won't be a concern.
1 28 Mark Ingram Saints (from New England) RB Alabama
The Saints feel they can never have enough backs in specialized roles in their prolific offense, but they paid a high price.
1 29 Gabe Carimi Bears T Wisconsin
The Bears wisely find someone who will be a strong run blocker on the right side and also help keep Jay Cutler upright.
1 30 Muhammad Wilkerson Jets DE Temple
The Jets addressed a need well here in getting someone who can soon replace Shaun Ellis as a highly effective starting 3-4 end.
1 31 Cameron Heyward Steelers DE Ohio State
Speaking of 3-4 ends, it's a little surprising Heyward slipped this far among them, but he's a perfect fit in the Steelers' attack scheme.
1 32 Derek Sherrod Packers T Mississippi State
After hitting on Bryan Bulaga last year, the Packers drafted to ensure their most valuable player, Aaron Rodgers, is better protected.
2 1 Ras-I Dowling Patriots (from Carolina) CB Virginia
The Patriots get a big, physical corner who will pair nicely with last year's first-round Pro Bowler Devin McCourty.
2 2 Aaron Williams Bills CB Texas
The Bills get a corner who is built like Ras-I Dowling, copying the Pats with a very similar pick.
2 3 Andy Dalton Bengals QB TCU
With starter Carson Palmer likely on his way out of town, Cincinnati wasted little time in grabbing the best QB left.
2 4 Colin Kaepernick 49ers (from Denver) QB Nevada
The QB scramble continues. With Dalton gone, the Niners go for another intriguing West Coast-type athlete.
2 5 Jabaal Sheard Browns DE Pittsburgh
After taking massive Phil Taylor to boost the middle, the Browns get a versatile player for the edge.
2 6 Ryan Williams Cardinals RB Virginia Tech
The Cards must not be too happy about the Beanie Wells-Tim Hightower combo, adding a quicker power back.
2 7 Akeem Ayers Titans OLB UCLA
The Titans need some help at outside linebacker as they've had trouble replacing Keith Bulluck.
2 8 Bruce Carter Cowboys OLB North Carolina
His torn ACL last season scared many teams, but when he's ready, he can make a big 3-4 impact.
2 9 Jarvis Jenkins Redskins (from Jacksonville) DT Clemson
Targeting him at 3-4 end, the Redskins go with a Clemson lineman not named Da'Quan Bowers.
2 10 Brooks Reed Texans OLB Arizona
This is a good consolation for not getting Aldon Smith. Reed and J.J. Watt are key 3-4 pieces.
2 11 Kyle Rudolph Vikings TE Notre Dame
The draft's best athletic pass-catching tight end is working to recover nicely from a hamstring injury.
2 12 Titus Young Lions WR Boise State
This underrated big playmaker from a great offense can become a fine No. 2 opposite Calvin Johnson.
2 13 Rahim Moore Broncos (from San Francisco) S UCLA
The Broncos get the draft's premier safety, a ballhawk who got some tutelage from Ed Reed.
2 14 Orlando Franklin Broncos (from Miami) T Miami (FL)
With the intent of rebuilding its running game, Denver lands a powerful guard/right tackle type.
2 15 Lance Kendricks Rams TE Wisconsin
It's not a wide receiver, but he's still a good potential big target for Sam Bradford.
2 16 Stefen Wisniewski Raiders C Penn State
The Raiders go for a chip off the old block who adds another good run blocker to their arsenal.
2 17 Ben Ijalana Colts (from Jacksonville through Washington) T Villanova
After getting Anthony Castonzo, the Colts keep up the line theme with a guard who can start right away.
2 18 Marcus Gilchrist Chargers CB Clemson
The Chargers go for a versatile talent who can help them in multiple positions in the secondary.
2 19 Da'Quan Bowers Buccaneers DE Clemson
The Buccaneers stay focused on getting more pass-rush pop, and end up with a very good value here.
2 20 Marvin Austin Giants DT North Carolina
Austin joins other UNC prospects in being undervalued. The Giants hit on another defensive faller.
2 21 Stephen Paea Bears (from Indianapolis through Washington) DT Oregon State
He's the ideal, very strong, powerful tackle to become an impact space-eater in Chicago's 4-3.
2 22 Jaiquawn Jarrett Eagles S Temple
The Eagles were intent on bolstering safety, so it makes sense they get Jarrett to pair with Nate Allen.
2 23 Rodney Hudson Chiefs C Florida State
The Chiefs were expected to upgrade offensive line sometime. They get a starting center here.
2 24 Shane Vereen Patriots (from New Orleans) RB California
After whiffing on Laurence Maroney, the Patriots get a quick back to add home-run pop to complement Tom Brady.
2 25 Mikel Leshoure Lions (from Seattle) RB Illinois
The Lions want to be a top-flight offense, and a physical big-play runner like Leshoure adds to that.
2 26 Torrey Smith Ravens WR Maryland
The Ravens stay in their home state to get a smart player who will help them better stretch the field.
2 27 Greg Little Browns (from Atlanta) WR North Carolina
After passing on Julio Jones, the Browns land someone who can give them good help on several routes.
2 28 Brandon Harris Texans (from New England) CB Miami (FL)
The Texans, not surprisingly, keep helping their new 3-4 pass defense, this time on the back line.
2 29 Jonas Mouton Chargers (from New York Jets) OLB Michigan
The Chargers will find a place for him to contribute early, as he's a very athletic all-around talent.
2 30 Daniel Thomas Dolphins (from Chicago through Washington) RB Kansas State
The Dolphins get their replacement for Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams in a powerful, versatile hybrid of both.
2 31 Marcus Gilbert Steelers T Florida
The Steelers desperately needed a massive tackle with great feet and Gilbert fits the bill.
2 32 Randall Cobb Packers WR Kentucky
The Packers find an eventual replacement for Donald Driver. Cobb also will help right away as a returner.
3 1 Terrell McClain Panthers DT South Florida
The Panthers, as expected, turn their focus to the defensive line to bolster depth inside.
3 2 Dontay Moch Bengals OLB Nevada
Moch impressed with speed, and the Bengals will be able to use this athlete all over the field.
3 3 Nate Irving Broncos ILB North Carolina State
It's curious with the Broncos switching to a 4-3, now have two linebackers better suited for a 3-4.
3 4 Kelvin Sheppard Bills ILB LSU
The Bills keep thinking the middle of their 3-4. Sheppard can start next to Paul Posluszny.
3 5 Rob Housler Cardinals TE Florida Atlantic
The Cardinals have lacked an athletic receiver at his position, and need one to help their quarterbacks.
3 6 Justin Houston Chiefs (from Cleveland) DE Georgia
The Chiefs have a budding young 3-4 defense. Houston can thrive opposite Tamba Hali.
3 7 DeMarco Murray Cowboys RB Oklahoma
The Cowboys have backfield depth, but this third-down type gives them a needed change of pace.
3 8 Martez Wilson Saints (from Washington) ILB Illinois
Wilson gives them some good inside punch after they got Cameron Jordan to fly off the edge.
3 9 Stevan Ridley Patriots (from Houston) RB LSU
The Patriots are probably thinking more about special teams here after drafting Shane Vereen.
3 10 Ryan Mallett Patriots (from Minnesota) QB Arkansas
He projects as backup upgrade for Tom Brady, but they better hope Nate Solder helps keep Brady healthy.
3 11 John Moffitt Seahawks (from Detroit) G Wisconsin
Gabe Carimi's teammate doesn't offer much athleticism, but he's a big-bodied, mauling type.
3 12 Will Rackley Jaguars (from San Francisco) G Lehigh
The Jaguars take a chance on a small-school tackle who will likely start out as a reserve guard.
3 13 Jurrell Casey Titans DT USC
The Titans passed on Nick Fairley in Round 1 but needed to address defensive tackle at some point. Good sleeper pick.
3 14 Austin Pettis Rams WR Boise State
The Rams lost out on the top two wide receivers early, but in Pettis, they get a smart, tough and likely reliable one.
3 15 Leonard Hankerson Redskins (from Miami) WR Miami (FL)
With speedsters and mighty mites already in the mix, the Redskins will enjoy having this big target.
3 16 Chris Culliver 49ers (from Jacksonville) CB South Carolina
The Niners needed a versatile secondary player to use in subpackages. Culliver also helps the return game.
3 17 DeMarcus Van Dyke Raiders CB Miami (FL)
It's not surprising the Raiders go with a prospect who impressed most with speed and quickness.
3 18 Vincent Brown Chargers WR San Diego State
The Chargers have plenty of downfield threats, so they wisely went local to find a necessary big possession type.
3 19 Jerrel Jernigan Giants WR Troy
The Giants once hit on a Troy prospect in Osi Umenyiora. Here they steal a versatile, tough, exciting cog.
3 20 Mason Foster Buccaneers ILB Washington
The Bucs know they need to stop the run better -- especially if they lose Barrett Ruud. Foster can help.
3 21 Jah Reid Ravens (from Philadelphia) T UCF
There was thought of moving Michael Oher to right tackle, but Reid is better suited for that side.
3 22 Allen Bailey Chiefs DE Miami (FL)
With Tyson Jackson not working out, the Chiefs made sure to add someone to plug into 3-4 end.
3 23 Drake Nevis Colts DT LSU
It seems the Colts are always adding tackles to their rotation. Some had Nevis as a first-rounder.
3 24 Johnny Patrick Saints CB Louisville
There's the adage you can never have enough defensive backs. Patrick is proof the Saints believe that.
3 25 Shareece Wright Chargers (from Seattle) CB USC
San Diego turns to Southern Cal to find even more secondary depth after taking Marcus Gilchrist.
3 26 Curtis Marsh Eagles (from Baltimore) CB Utah State
The cornerback run continues. The Eagles take a chance on a tall one they hope can develop well in their system.
3 27 Akeem Dent Falcons ILB Georgia
Atlanta already has a great 4-3 starter in Curtis Lofton, so Dent will be a backup and special teamer.
3 28 Joseph Barksdale Raiders (from New England) T LSU
After getting 6-8 Jared Veldheer at tackle last year, the Raiders go for a 336-pound project.
3 29 Chris Conte Bears S California
With Danieal Manning's status in limbo for 2011, the Bears needed to add a tough, tall safety.
3 30 Kenrick Ellis Jets DE Hampton
Ellis and first-rounder Muhammad Wilkerson give the Jets a much stronger three-man front rotation.
3 31 Curtis Brown Steelers CB Texas
The Steelers were expected to take Aaron Williams earlier, but his teammate offers a nice-sized Ike Taylor replacement.
3 32 Alex Green Packers RB Hawaii
The Packers keep adding to their offensive arsenal with a sleeper back to help them pound the ball in the red zone.
3 33 Sione Fua Panthers (compensatory) DE Stanford
Fua seems more like a rotation player to help a unit that wore down against the run last season.
4 1 Brandon Hogan Panthers CB West Virginia
They didn't go for the big corner prize in Patrick Peterson, but this aggressive athlete helps fill a need in nickel and dime.
4 2 K.J. Wright Seahawks (from Denver through New England) OLB Mississippi State
The Seahawks have had injury concerns at linebacker, so here's a depth player who also will be a fine athlete on special teams.
4 3 Da'Norris Searcy Bills S North Carolina
One of the draft's underrated safeties. He has potential to start, but in the meantime, he can be an impact special teamer.
4 4 Clint Boling Bengals G Georgia
The Bengals needed interior line help to help give them more consistent run blocking.
4 5 Jordan Cameron Browns TE USC
The Browns needed such a player for Colt McCoy. This big athletic pass-catcher complements Ben Watson nicely.
4 6 Sam Acho Cardinals OLB Texas
He's a high-character athlete from a top program. He's a good run stopper who can develop into a fine pass rusher.
4 7 Luke Stocker Buccaneers (from Washington through Philadelphia) TE Tennessee
He can contribute as a blocker in two-tight end sets while he hones his receiving skills behind Kellen Winslow.
4 8 Roy Helu Redskins RB Nebraska
He was a very productive runner at Nebraska. Washington needed such a player after going through so many backfield injuries.
4 9 Christian Ballard Vikings DE Iowa
Some late character issues may have hurt him. Although not as explosive as Adrian Clayborn, he can be solid in a 4-3.
4 10 Kris Durham Seahawks (from Detroit) WR Georgia
He looks and plays like a Drew Bennett type. He gives the Seahawks another tall receiver to put alongside Mike Williams.
4 11 Quinton Carter Broncos (from San Francisco) S Oklahoma
The Broncos are making safety a big priority as Carter will join Rahim Moore in increasing quality and depth there.
4 12 Colin McCarthy Titans OLB Miami (FL)
The Titans get a scrappy, versatile player to help back up rookie Akeem Ayers and also contribute on special teams.
4 13 David Arkin Cowboys OL Missouri State
The Cowboys get a sleeper interior lineman whose combination of strength and athleticism gives him starting potential.
4 14 Edmond Gates Dolphins WR Abilene Christian
He has exciting speed and athleticism, but he'll need time to develop into a more polished route runner and receiver.
4 15 Greg Salas Rams WR Hawaii
The Rams are obviously looking for big targets for the intermediate game, as Salas joins Austin Pettis and Lance Kendricks.
4 16 Chimdi Chekwa Raiders CB Ohio State
The Raiders are thinking a boost to their nickel package here, getting a solid all-around athlete from a big program.
4 17 Cecil Shorts Jaguars WR Mount Union
Don't be fooled by his name: He's tall on talent to help in many areas, and can thank Pierre Garcon for paving the way.
4 18 Kendall Hunter 49ers (from San Diego) RB Oklahoma State
A tough little runner who packs a lot of pop. He should see the field right away helping to spell Frank Gore along with Anthony Dixon.
4 19 Casey Matthews Eagles (from Tampa Bay) ILB Oregon
Looking at Clay Matthews' success, the Eagles wisely think Casey can do big things for a struggling linebacker corps.
4 20 James Brewer Giants T Indiana
He's not quite at the Rodger Saffold level, but he has great potential to be a fine starting right tackle.
4 21 Jalil Brown Chiefs CB Colorado
He doesn?ft have the flashy speed and athleticism of Jimmy Smith, but his size and physical style are intriguing.
4 22 Delone Carter Colts RB Syracuse
The Colts get a good value here. It's no surprise they wanted this type of runner with Joseph Addai set to leave.
4 23 Alex Henery Eagles K Nebraska
The draft's clear-cut best kicker can potentially take over for pricey vet David Akers, who turns 37 in December.
4 24 Chris Prosinski Jaguars (from New Orleans) S Wyoming
The Jaguars haven't been able to solve their safety problems, and they try again with someone who will start off on special teams.
4 25 Chris Hairston Bills (from Seattle) T Clemson
The Bills have found some good young starters on their offensive line. Now they get a smart backup for the mix.
4 26 Tandon Doss Ravens WR Indiana
He made big plays for a pass-heavy college offense. He'll help the Ravens as a No. 3 who can take advantage of nickel and dimes.
4 27 Owen Marecic Browns (from Atlanta) FB Stanford
The Browns and Clevelanders love blue-collar players (think Madden cover subject Peyton Hillis) and Marecic fits right in.
4 28 Taiwan Jones Raiders (from New England) RB Eastern Washington
The Raiders might lose Michael Bush, so they go for a speedy complement to Darren McFadden who also can return well.
4 29 Bilal Powell Jets RB Louisville
Shonn Greene is a power guy. LaDainian Tomlinson is fading. The Jets wisely get a complement who can help the passing game.
4 30 Rashad Carmichael Texans (from Chicago through Washington) CB Virginia Tech
The Texans are making sure they continue to stockpile defensive backs for Wade Phillips, who likes to use a lot of them.
4 31 Cortez Allen Steelers CB Citadel
The Steelers are making sure they line up some press corners to compensate for the likely loss of Ike Taylor.
4 32 Julius Thomas Broncos (from Green Bay) TE Portland State
The Broncos look to follow the Chiefs and Chargers in finding a good pass-catching tight end with a basketball background.
4 33 Jamie Harper Titans (compensatory) RB Clemson
He's not exactly C.J. Spiller, but he's a nice-sized third-down type who can be an effective complement to Chris Johnson.
4 34 Davon House Packers (compensatory) CB New Mexico State
The Packers like having great depth at defensive back, and they'll hope they hit on him like they did on undrafted Sam Shields.
5 1 Kealoha Pilares Panthers WR Hawaii
After Davone Bess' success, the Panthers hope they've found someone similar: a slot receiver who can boost their third-down looks.
5 2 Johnny White Bills RB North Carolina
He's a good compact back with the ideal third-down skills to complement last year's first-round pick, C.J. Spiller.
5 3 Robert Sands Bengals OLB West Virginia
The Bengals are clearly looking for several athletic, versatile bodies for their back seven. Sands can be a special teams ace early.
5 4 Ricky Stanzi Chiefs (from Denver through Tampa Bay) QB Iowa
The Chiefs should be very happy with Matt Cassel, but Stanzi has the potential be a very valuable backup for a long time.
5 5 Anthony Sherman Cardinals FB Connecticut
The Cardinals already drafted a running back and tight end, so here they can afford to add a pure blocker.
5 6 Buster Skrine Browns CB Chattanooga
The Browns keep bolstering their defensive backfield after adding Joe Haden and T.J. Ward last year.
5 7 Marcus Cannon Patriots (from Houston) T TCU
The Patriots are committed to rebuild their line if Matt Light and Logan Mankins don't return. Cannon and Nate Solder are coups.
5 8 Brandon Burton Vikings CB Utah
The Vikings rely heavily on versatile defensive backs in Leslie Frazier's cover-2, and Burton will fit well in nickel and dime looks.
5 9 Gabe Miller Chiefs (from Detroit) OLB Oregon State
You can never have enough linebackers if you're a 3-4 team, and Miller projects as a valuable backup.
5 10 D.J. Williams Packers (from San Francisco through Denver) TE Arkansas
The Packers needed some Jermichael Finley insurance at tight end, and land a strong, athletic one with starter potential.
5 11 Karl Klug Titans DT Iowa
The Titans needed help with their defensive line rotation. Klug can help plug the middle and provide some inside pass-rush pop.
5 12 Josh Thomas Cowboys CB Buffalo
The Cowboys have some speedy defensive backs, but here's a tougher, stronger one. They also might lose Orlando Scandrick.
5 13 Shiloh Keo Texans (from Washington) S Idaho
The Texans continue the theme of improving their pass defense everywhere in the 3-4, adding their third defensive back.
5 14 Jacquizz Rodgers Falcons (from St. Louis) RB Oregon State
The Falcons got their big receiver in Julio Jones, but it was important they also added a versatile runner and pass-catcher.
5 15 Dejon Gomes Redskins (from Miami) S Nebraska
The Redskins add depth for their backline run support, and Gomes also will contribute on special teams.
5 16 Rod Issac Jaguars DB Middle Tennessee
The Jaguars needed more backs for their nickel and dime packages, and Isaac is a good project.
5 17 Denarius Moore Raiders WR Tennessee
This is a classic Raiders pick: A straight-line vertical receiver who needs much work on the nuances of route-running.
5 18 Dion Lewis Eagles (from San Diego) RB Pittsburgh
The Eagles are already enjoying the success of former Pitt running back LeSean McCoy, so why not take another as a complement?
5 19 Jason Pinkston Browns (from New York Giants through Minnesota) T Pittsburgh
He'll start out as a good backup tackle and guard while learning well behind Joe Thomas.
5 20 Ahmad Black Buccaneers S Florida
If there's anyone who can polish Black, turning him from special teamer to strong impact safety, it's Raheem Morris.
5 21 T.J. Yates Texans (from Indianapolis through Washington) QB North Carolina
Yates, like Ricky Stanzi taken earlier in this round, comes from a pro system, and did pretty well in it at North Carolina.
5 22 Jeremy Kerley Jets (from Philadelphia) WR TCU
The Jets are protecting themselves just in case they lose versatile receiver/kick returner Brad Smith.
5 23 Richard Sherman Seahawks (from Kansas City through Detroit) CB Stanford
The Seahawks address a big need much later than expected. Sherman, with his quickness is a good fit for the nickel.
5 24 Niles Paul Redskins (from New Orleans) WR Nebraska
After getting Leonard Hankerson earlier, the Redskins get another good value here to help rebuild their receiving corps.
5 25 Mark Legree Seahawks S Appalachian State
He is the type of safety who usually goes off the board around this time: a good tackler against the run and special teams contributor.
5 26 Doug Hogue Lions (from Baltimore through Seattle) OLB Syracuse
He's the ideal special teamer and rotation linebacker, making him a good selection at this spot.
5 27 Jermale Hines Rams (from Atlanta) S Ohio State
The Rams line up another candidate to help them overcome the loss of Oshiomogho Atogwe.
5 28 Lee Smith Patriots TE Marshall
The Patriots are back to collecting tight ends. He'll probably replace Alge Crumpler as a young No. 3.
5 29 Nathan Enderle Bears QB Idaho
The Bears aren't sure how their backups will sort out behind Jay Cutler. Enderle is a No. 3 who can develop into a No. 2.
5 30 Julian Vandervelde Eagles (from New York Jets) C Iowa
The Eagles are good at finding interior linemen late, and now they're totally covered if Jamaal Jackson doesn't recover.
5 31 Chris Carter Steelers OLB Fresno State
The Steelers needed to start lining up options at linebacker with some age creeping up, especially on James Harrison.
5 32 Daniel Kilgore 49ers (from Green Bay) G Appalachian State
The 49ers hope to have better health on their line, but if they don't, here's a backup who can slide anywhere at guard and tackle.
5 33 Chykie Brown Ravens (compensatory) CB Texas
The Ravens grab the third Texas corner in this draft. Brown and first-rounder Jimmy Smith rounds out their depth for nickel nicely.
5 34 Pernell McPhee Ravens (compensatory) DE Mississippi State
Baltimore figured it could find a decent 3-4 end beyond the first round, and McPhee is perfect for its system.
6 1 Lawrence Wilson Panthers OLB Connecticut
The Panthers needed a versatile backup to help them against the pass, and Wilson also boosts their special teams coverage.
6 2 Ryan Whalen Bengals WR Stanford
The Bengals have some explosive athletes in their receiving corps including A.J. Green. Whalen gives them a big, tough option.
6 3 DeMarcus Love Vikings (from Denver through Cleveland) T Arkansas
The Vikings take a bit of a project. Love has much work to do to be more than a backup.
6 4 Chris White Bills ILB Mississippi State
The Bills keep on adding depth and production inside. White projects as a rotation linebacker and consistent special teamer.
6 5 Mistral Raymond Vikings (from Cleveland) S South Florida
The Vikings are used to fine defenders tailored to special teams. Raymond can be like Heath Farwell for them.
6 6 Quan Sturdivant Cardinals OLB North Carolina
In grabbing the eighth Tar Heel in this draft, the Cardinals get a tackling machine with some starting potential.
6 7 Brandon Fusco Vikings C Slippery Rock
He projects as a versatile interior backup who might be able to start as a good run-blocking center down the line.
6 8 Byron Maxwell Seahawks (from Detroit) CB Clemson
The Seahawks seem intent on getting quantity to help their secondary, and they get good quality here.
6 9 Charles Clay Dolphins (from San Francisco through Green Bay) TE Tulsa
The Dolphins need more creativity for their offense, and this versatile hybrid can play plenty of positions on team Wildcat.
6 10 Byron Stingily Titans OL Louisville
Stingily is built well for the part of long-term NFL backup at guard and tackle.
6 11 Dwayne Harris Cowboys WR East Carolina
The Cowboys are moving on from Sam Hurd, so Harris can be a valuable cog working in four-receiver sets and on special teams.
6 12 Evan Royster Redskins RB Penn State
The Redskins are reshuffling their backfield more to Mike Shanahan's liking with both Royster and Roy Helu.
6 13 Aldrick Robinson Redskins (from Houston) WR Southern Methodist
After going for some possession types earlier in the draft, Washington goes back to the speed, quickness and explosiveness well.
6 14 Caleb Schlauderaff Packers (from Miami) G Utah
The Packers are protecting themselves in case they lose considerable interior line depth in free agency.
6 15 Tyrod Taylor Ravens (from St. Louis) QB Virginia Tech
The Ravens wanted to improve their backup situation behind Joe Flacco with a player who should remind them of Troy Smith.
6 16 Richard Gordon Raiders TE Miami (FL)
There were some injury issues with Zach Miller, so not surprisingly, the Raiders go after an exceptional athlete as insurance.
6 17 Ronald Johnson 49ers (from Jacksonville) WR USC
The 49ers needed a big receiver who could also help on special teams. Jim Harbaugh saw plenty of him in the Pac-10.
6 18 Jordan Todman Chargers RB Connecticut
With Darren Sproles gone, the Chargers get their complementary third-down type for 2010 first-rounder Ryan Mathews.
6 19 David Carter Cardinals (from Tampa Bay through Philadelphia) DE UCLA
The Cardinals get a backup tackle-type end who can help them with their new 3-4 looks.
6 20 Greg Jones Giants ILB Michigan State
The Giants need some help in their quest to make up for the lingering loss of Antonio Pierce. Jones is a fine run stopper.
6 21 D.J. Smith Packers (from Philadelphia through Detroit and Denver) LB Appalachian State
The Packers need some depth inside with Nick Barnett unlikely to return. Smith can also end up being a prolific special teams tackler.
6 22 Allen Bradford Buccaneers (from Kansas City) RB USC
The Bucs obviously like having strong, physical backs, and Bradford adds to that behind LeGarrette Blount.
6 23 Chris Rucker Colts CB Michigan State
Off-the-field issues caused this seasoned college starter to slip. The Colts hope they can turn him into a valuable sub-package player.
6 24 Mike Mohamed Broncos (from New Orleans through New England) ILB California
There's nothing flashy about Mohamed, but he does many things well. The Broncos need his kind of player for their defense.
6 25 Colin Jones 49ers (from Seattle) S TCU
He has great speed and athleticism, and projects as an immediate impact player in special teams coverage.
6 26 Jason Kelce Eagles (through Baltimore) C Cincinnati
The Eagles are stockpiling interior linemen. Kelce will be a backup, perhaps to Danny Watkins and Julian Vandervelde.
6 27 Matt Bosher Falcons P Miami (FL)
The Falcons re-signed Michael Koenen, but might decide later he's too expensive if Bosher impressed enough on punts and kickoffs.
6 28 Brian Rolle Eagles (from New England) ILB Ohio State
The Eagles really needed such an active inside or outside player. Rolle can start off as a solid backup and special teamer.
6 29 Markell Carter Patriots (from New York Jets through Philadelphia) LB Central Arkansas
The Patriots get their type of late-rounder, a versatile end and outside linebacker they can plug in many places in their 3-4.
6 30 J.T. Thomas Bears ILB West Virginia
Just as planned, with linebacker uncertainty after Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs, the Bears have grabbed an inside one late.
6 31 Keith Williams Steelers G Nebraska
He won't be a starter for a while, but the Steelers got their type of lineman, a mean mauler in the Alan Faneca mold.
6 32 Ricky Elmore Packers DE Arizona
The Packers grabbed a smart player built well to help them replace Cullen Jenkins in the 3-4 end rotation.
6 33 Tyler Sash Giants (compensatory) S Iowa
The Giants were likely enamored by his energy and relentless as a tackler all over the field. He projects as a special teams star.
6 34 Jerrell Powe Chiefs (compensatory) DT Mississippi
Nose tackle is critical to the 3-4 front, and the Chiefs take a massive prospect who has great potential for the position.
6 35 Ross Homan Vikings (compensatory) OLB Ohio State
This must be the time for the Ohio State linebackers to go. Homan is undersized, but he can also be huge on special teams.
6 36 Stephen Schilling Chargers (compensatory) G Michigan
The Chargers get a seasoned and experienced projected backup lineman who could start in a few years.
6 37 Jacquian Williams Giants (compensatory) MLB South Florida
The Giants can never seem to have enough front-seven players, and Williams can contribute big-time in special coverage.
6 38 Zach Williams Panthers (compensatory) C Washington State
If all goes well, the Panthers will have found a solid backup behind Ryan Kalil.
7 1 Virgil Green Broncos (from Carolina through Green Bay) TE Nevada
With Green and Julius Thomas, Broncos clearly want to reestablish the tight end as a big receiving threat in their offense.
7 2 Lazarius Levingston Seahawks (from Denver through Detroit) DE LSU
With Brandon Mebane likely gone, the Seahawks get a run stopper to boost their interior line rotation.
7 3 Justin Rogers Bills CB Richmond
The Bills need more speed and quickness in the secondary. Rogers provides that while he'll continue to develop as a cover man.
7 4 Korey Lindsey Bengals CB Southern Illinois
He's a well undersized corner who will need to earn his keep in dime packages and on special teams to make the team.
7 5 Greg McElroy Jets (from Arizona) QB Alabama
His intelligence and winning background give him the right makeup to develop into a strong No. 2 for Mark Sanchez.
7 6 Johnny Culbreath Lions (from Cleveland through Seattle) ROT South Carolina State
He's got a nice, tall frame to be an intriguing project. The Lions need to develop tackles for the near future.
7 7 Andrew Jackson Falcons (from Detroit) G Fresno State
The Falcons have some pretty good interior lineman, but they needed some insurance against age and free agency.
7 8 Bruce Miller 49ers OLB UCF
Vic Fangio got Aldon Smith way back in Round 1, and now gets a sleeper playmaker to serve as a backup outside in his 3-4.
7 9 Zach Clayton Titans DT Auburn
He's kind of the Nick Fairley antithesis: Not nearly as explosive but will work hard and give his best effort on every snap.
7 10 Brandyn Thompson Redskins CB Boise State
The Redskins get someone who has enough speed and quickness to handle slot receivers in nickel and dime packages.
7 11 Derek Newton Texans T Arkansas State
The Texans obviously have pretty good run blocking in front of Arian Foster, but they needed some depth.
7 12 D'Aundre Reed Vikings DL Arizona
He's no Brooks Reed, but this other Reed from Arizona gets a good shot to make the team as a high-energy 4-3 end.
7 13 Mikail Baker Rams CB Baylor
The Rams have lacked an explosive kick returner for a while, and Baker has the speed and quickness to be a difference-maker.
7 14 Maurice Hurt Redskins (from Miami) G Florida
Someone playing well on the same line as Mike Pouncey and Marcus Gilbert was bound to get consideration late.
7 15 Ryan Taylor Packers (from Jacksonville through Dolphins) TE North Carolina
Butch Davis had a lot of talent in Chapel Hill, didn't he? Taylor, like running back Johnny White, is an underrated, versatile cog.
7 16 Malcolm Williams Patriots (from Oakland) CB TCU
The Patriots use their last pick to add depth to their secondary, hoping Williams' speed translates well to nickel and dime.
7 17 Shaun Chapas Cowboys (from San Diego) FB Georgia
The Cowboys have made use of a good, tough versatile fullback recently in Chris Gronkowski. Chapas has promise as a blocker.
7 18 Da'Rel Scott Giants RB Maryland
The Giants get their late insurance just in case another seventh-rounder, Ahmad Bradshaw, jumps as a free agent.
7 19 Anthony Gaitor Buccaneers CB FIU
Gaitor is a small-school project with the speed and the ability to cover well as a safety to make it in the Bucs' cover 2.
7 20 Shane Bannon Chiefs FB Yale
He's a lot like another Yale late-rounder (Eric Johnson, the future Mr. Jessica Simpson): a smart, versatile tight end/fullback hybrid.
7 21 Markus White Redskins (from Indianapolis) OLB Florida State
The Redskins get a very active special teams player who has a history of impact plays in that phase.
7 22 Anthony Allen Ravens (from Philadelphia) RB Georgia Tech
Looks like the Ravens are preparing for the loss of Le'Ron McClain by getting this year's most versatile fullback.
7 23 Greg Romeus Saints DE Pittsburgh
Romeus produced on the same line as Jabaal Sheard, and is a good all-around end who slipped because of injury concerns.
7 24 Scotty McKnight Jets (from Seattle through Philadelphia) WR Colorado
Mark Sanchez made this pick happen, literally, as he threw to McKnight, a long-time friend, to help him shine on pro day.
7 25 Jabara Williams Rams (from Baltimore) ILB Stephen F. Austin
The Rams are really committed to improved special teams, as Williams' value is purely in that capacity.
7 26 Jonathan Nelson Rams (from Atlanta) S Oklahoma
St. Louis is ready to explore all its safety options, and knows it did pretty well with an Oklahoma prospect last year.
7 27 Cliff Matthews Falcons (from New England) DE South Carolina
He has explosive pass-rush potential. The Falcons hope he can be a second coming of another Gamecock, John Abraham.
7 28 Frank Kearse Dolphins (from New York Jets through Detroit and San Francisco and Green Bay) DT Alabama A&M
With Paul Soliai re-signed at nose tackle, the Dolphins focus on a backup inside and outside in their 3-4.
7 29 Baron Batch Steelers RB Texas Tech
The Steelers already have their feature power back in Rashard Mendenhall. Here's a Mewelde Moore-like third-down type.
7 30 Lawrence Guy Packers DT Arizona State
Guy has the potential to start in the near future in the Packers' 3-4. Another late-round coup by Ted Thompson.
7 31 Andrew Gachkar Chargers (compensatory) OLB Missouri
He's a very fast and athletic linebacker who likely slipped because of a hamstring injury. He'll need to make it first on special teams.
7 32 Jimmy Wilson Dolphins (compensatory) CB Montana
In the wake of the Aqib Talib incident, he had a similar off-field issue. He's a long shot to make it as a special teams player.
7 33 Stephen Burton Vikings (compensatory) WR West Texas A&M
He'll need to work on the back end of the depth chart to make it, but he has the size and speed to make that happen.
7 34 Greg Lloyd II Eagles (compensatory) OLB Connecticut
This is the ideal late-round pick for the Eagles: A versatile, productive player from a successful college team.
7 35 Daniel Hardy Buccaneers (compensatory) TE Idaho
One offensive theme of this draft is teams looking for a impact athlete at tight end, even a small-school project such as Hardy.
7 36 Mike Person 49ers (compensatory) G Montana State
The small-school college tackle probably will need to prove he can be a strong backup guard for the Niners.
7 37 Stanley Havili Eagles (compensatory) FB USC
The Eagles always need a versatile, receiving fullback in Andy Reid's offense (think Leonard Weaver). Great value here.
7 38 David Ausberry Raiders (compensatory) WR USC
The Raiders can't stay away from speedy prospects in late rounds, either. Ausberry comes with good size as well.
7 39 Malcolm Smith Seahawks (compensatory) OLB USC
That's three Trojans in a row. Like the other two, Smith is a versatile, quick athlete, built to help old coach Pete Carroll.
7 40 Nate Bussey Saints (compensatory) OLB Illinois
He's another fast prospect from the Illini who can be a decent backup while making his mark on special teams.
7 41 Lee Ziemba Panthers (compensatory) T Auburn
The Panthers brought Cam Newton's top tackle along with him, and that could end up helping out the QB with intangibles.
7 42 Michael Jasper Bills (compensatory) G Bethel (TN)
He might come from a very small school, but it's clear to see he's massive for the interior line, pushing nearly 400 pounds.
7 43 Jay Finley Bengals (compensatory) RB Baylor
There have been a lot of good athletes from Baylor taken, and he fits right in as good receiver who can star on third downs.
7 44 Jeremy Beal Broncos (compensatory) OLB Oklahoma
The Broncos get another productive Big 12 linebacker to pair with Von Miller. The question is whether Beal fits their 4-3.
7 45 Eric Hagg Browns (compensatory) CB Nebraska
The Browns have made defensive back a big priority, and here they take a flyer on a big, big-program corner.
7 46 DeMarco Sampson Cardinals (compensatory) WR San Diego State
His age (25) and limited speed makes this Aztec a long shot. He does, however, come in with good height and great hands.
7 47 Curtis Holcomb 49ers (compensatory) CB Florida A&M
The 49ers really focused on secondary depth and speed in this draft, and Holcomb is a good wrap up to that end.
7 48 Tommie Campbell Titans (compensatory) CB California (PA)
The Titans need some help in their nickel and dime packages, and Campbell comes in with intriguing speed.
7 49 Bill Nagy Cowboys (compensatory) C Wisconsin
Nagy follows Badgers linemates Gabe Carimi and John Moffitt in getting drafted. He projects as a decent interior backup.
7 50 Chris Neild Redskins (compensatory) DT West Virginia
The Redskins get a tough grinder who at best can contribute as a rotational backup at nose tackle in their 3-4.
7 51 Cheta Ozougwu Texans (compensatory) OLB Rice
Houston stays local with Mr. Irrelevant, and doesn't go off its theme of adding effective 3-4 players for Wade Phillips.
