11. San Diego Chargers  – Jake Matthews, Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M

Philip Rivers needs to be protected or the Chargers will not go anywhere. Matthews is the cousin of Packers linebacker Clay Matthews Jr., so you know he has the NFL bloodlines.

12. Miami Dolphins – Taylor Lewan, Offensive Tackle, Michigan

It doesn’t appear that the Dolphins will re-sign Jake Long this offseason, so they will be looking for a replacement. What better place to look than Long’s alma mater at Michigan?

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Johnathan Banks, Cornerback, Mississippi State

Since letting Aqib Talib bolt, the Bucs have needed help in the secondary. With Milliner off the board, Banks is the next best option and a pick Tampa Bay would have to make.

14.  Carolina Panthers – Jonathan Hankins, Defensive Tackle, Ohio State

Luke Kuechly is a phenomenal talent and could be the cornerstone of the Panthers defense for years to come. If things are going to travel to the next level for Carolina, they will need a talented big body along the defensive line to keep blockers off of Kuechly.

15.  New Orleans Saints – Sam Montgomery, Defensive End, LSU

The Saints need to get after opposing quarterbacks. Montgomery has been called out for questionable work ethic in the past, but he is a top ten talent that could help give the Saints defense a boost.

16.  St. Louis Rams – Chance Warmack, Guard, Alabama

If the Rams aren’t going to protect Sam Bradford, he isn’t going to stand a chance taking this team to the next level. Warmack is one of the best guard prospects in the past decade and would be a welcomed addition to the trenches in St. Louis.

17.  Pittsburgh Steelers – Manti T’eo, Linebacker, Notre Dame

Wow. T’eo has a chance to slide in the draft because true inside linebackers tend to fall farther than they should. The Steelers are aging on defense and need to add some younger talent to the unit. What better way to add talent than to add a player will T’eo’s skill set and leadership ability.

18. Dallas Cowboys – John Jenkins, Nose Tackle, Georgia

Dallas is very thin at nose tackle, especially following the unfortunate incident with Josh Brent and Jerry Brown. Jenkins is a massive body that would give the Cowboys what they need along their front three.

19. New York Giants – Ezekial Ansah, Defensive End, BYU

Ansah has drawn comparison’s to Jason Pierre-Paul. Do you really need to hear much more than that to understand why he would be a brilliant fit for the Giants?

20. Chicago Bears – Eric Fisher, Offensive Tackle, Central Michigan

Jay Cutler needs to stay healthy. To stay healthy, he needs to stay upright. The way to ensure Cutler stays on his feet next season is to take the top offensive tackle available.

    I hope the Bucs don’t reach for a guy like Banks just because we need a corner. We also need a safety, a pass rusher, and as always, the best player available can be helpful. Honestly would rather see Te’o, if it plays out like you said.

    Who is the hack writing this mock draft? I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he’s blind and never watched football before. Geno Smith is NOT the “number one guy in the class”. It’s fricken December, it’s way to early to tell. Aaron Murray, Landry Jones, Tyler Wilson, that Bray kid out of Tennessee are ALL better options than Smith. Do us all a favor and stick to writing about high school wrestling or something that suits morons.

And if your saying geno is a bad because of his record than your an idiot and are blind and have probably never watched football before. just chill out.

    Mingo may be a natural pass rusher but, he’s to small to play DE in a 4-3 system. Moore, Milliner, and Teo would all be better options at 6.
