    The Chiefs need an upgrade or at least some competition for Cassel. Therefore, our third round selection is QB, BROCK OSWEILER. We feel he has the potential to be a future pro-bowler, with his physical skill sets and massive arm. Welcome aboard ....

    The Seahawks nabbed QB Ryan Tannehill in round 1 and pass rushing DE Nick Perry in round 2. They have Beast Mode Lynch at RB, but not much behind him (Leon Washington is a fine kick returner and punt returner and a guy who could catch passes out of the backfield or even as a slot receiver at times, but if Marshawn gets hurt, I would have a hard time seeing Leon taking over regular RB duties...he is more of a specialist type). Aside from Washington, the next man up if Lynch goes down would be Kregg Lumpkin. We can do better than that. They could go with the 5'11" 215 lbs. Chris Polk as a potential replacement for Lynch if got hurt (Lynch is listed with the exact same 5'11" 215 lbs. measureables), or they could go with more of a complement to Lynch in 5'10" 197 lbs. Isaiah Pead. Well, Pead is best suited as a 3rd down change of pace type back, and that is what Leon Washington does, so the Seahawks will go with the local boy instead.



    The Seattle Seahawks select Washington RB Chris Polk.

    Texans need to add some depth up front along the OL so the Texans pick OT/G James Brown from Troy Univ.

    With their third pick of the third round, the Chargers decide that help in the secondary is needed and we see a pretty solid value still on the board. That value is Casey Hayward, CB, Vanderbilt.

    Okay, Chadman did not make his pick for the Bears overnight, so I will now leapfrog him with my pick for Arizona and squidkid's pick for Dallas (which he PM'ed to me). Then I will make Chicago's pick for Chadman, then my own pick for Tennessee, and we'll get this last half of the third round officially rolling.



    After taking a tackling machine at ILB in round 1 in Luke Kuechly, and not having a pick in round 2 because of the ill-fated Kolb trade, the Cardinals still have numerous needs. They need OL help, they need a true #2 WR to complement Fitzgerald, and they could use an improved pass rush. They can take the B.P.A. at one of those positions, so they'll look for the biggest value pick that would fill one of those big needs. All of the OL and WR with 1st and 2nd round grades came off the board long ago, but there is still a pass-rushing OLB on the board who has a mid-2nd round grade and would be an excellent complement opposite of Sam Acho.



    The Arizona Cardinals select Oklahoma OLB Ronnell Lewis.

    Squidkid PM'ed me what may be the most polarizing pick of our mock draft so far. This guy seemed destined to be a highly-sought-after first round pick not too long ago. But as the unnecessary penalties rose, the on field performance last season dropped, the combine and pro day workouts were awful, and the interviews were worse, this guy's stock started dropping faster than any other prospect in recent memory. In our mock, he's not a first round pick, but he's not a guy who tumbles in to the late rounds either.



    The Dallas Cowboys select Arizona State LB Vontaze Burfict.

    The Bears took TE Coby Fleener in round 1 and DT Kendall Reyes in round 2, filling two needs. They filled their WR need by trading for Brandon Marshall, so their biggest need left is on the OL. Gabe Carimi in entrenched at RT, but at LT, J'Marcus Webb gave up 12 sacks and 14 penalties last season (even Steeler fans who are used to our awful OL play have to look at those numbers and say, whoa!). Even worse, there is no one behind Webb to replace him, so reinforcements are needed. Luckily, there is an OT prospect on the board who was considered to be a mid-round selection not too long ago, but whose stock has risen to a legit 3rd round value at this point.



    The Chicago Bears select Oklahoma OT Donald Stephenson.

    The Titans addressed their needs on the interior OL with Peter Konz in round 1, and improved their pass rush with Chandler Jones in round 2. Now they can use more help in their secondary. Cortland Finnegan followed Jeff Fisher to St. Louis, so they could use depth at corner to go with projected starters Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner. There is a 6'2" 204 lbs. cornerback still on the board, and they could use a corner with size since they are in a division that has them playing again Andre Johnson twice per year. And if he doesn't pan out at corner at the next level, he also has some positional flexibility to safety as well, and the Titans could use some depth there too.



    The Tennessee Titans select Montana CB Trumaine Johnson.

    Damn you Titans. I actually pm'ed Chadman last night to try and trade up for his spot to select Johnson. With him no longer on the board, the Cincinnati Bengals choose to strengthen their oft injured/suspended secondary by selecting Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia.
