49. New York Giants
Eric Reid, FS, LSU* (SCOUTING NOTES)
Reid will make some mental errors, but his athletic ability and closing speed might not be matched in this safety class.
50. Chicago Bears
Cordarelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee (SCOUTING NOTES)
Patterson could be the #1 receiver in the draft and certainly has the athletic traits teams look for. Cutler, Jeffrey, Marshall and Patterson would be a tough trio to defend.
51. Cincinnati Bengals
David Amerson, CB/S, NC State (SCOUTING NOTES)
Amerson is a slower corner that would be better served at the safety position in the NFL – he is very adept at getting his hands on the football.
52. Washington Redskins
Christian Jones, OLB, Florida State (SCOUTING NOTES)
Jones has a load of athleticism and would look very good in the NFC East.
53. Minnesota Vikings
Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina (SCOUTING NOTES)
Give Jared Allen a guy like Williams next to him and see what happens. When Wiliams’ motor is running hot, he is a bear to deal with.
54. Miami Dolphins (via IND)
Khaseem Greene, LB, Rutgers (SCOUTING REPORT)
Adding a rangy linebacker that can hit, blitz and cover would be a great addition for Miami.
55. Seattle Seahawks
Shariff Floyd, DL, Florida (SCOUTING NOTES)
Floyd is an often over-looked lineman that is unblockable when he brings his “A” game. He can play inside or even as a 5-tech DE.
56. Green Bay Packers
Jordan Reed, TE, Florida
Jermichael Finley is gone. Reed will be an upgrade at the “Joker” position.
57. Houston Texans
Matt Elam, S, Florida* (SCOUTING NOTES)
Elam is a true strong safety. He isn’t a big coverage guy, but man can he pack a wallop.
58. Denver Broncos
Travis Frederick, OG/OC, Wisconsin (SCOUTING NOTES)
The Broncos could use some additional talent inside on the offensive line. Frederick has the versatility and talent to be that guy.
59. Baltimore Ravens
Denard Robinson, WR/RB/CB/QB, Michigan (SCOUTING NOTES)
Robinson is going to get drafted higher than most people think. He is a special athlete that an NFL team will find a place for on the field.
60. San Francisco 49ers
Datone Jones, DE, UCLA (SCOUTING NOTES)
Jones is a guy that an NFL team can mold into exactly what they want. He’s got a nice blend of speed and athleticism and just doesn’t like to be blocked.
61. Atlanta Falcons
DJ Swearinger, CB/S, South Carolina (SCOUTING NOTES)
Swearinger is a physical defensive back that can line up wherever you need him.
62. New England Patriots
Kawann Short, DT, Purdue (SCOUTING REPORT)
Adding a rotational defensive lineman that can make some plays inside will be key. Short isn’t a 3-down lineman at this point, but for 25-30 snaps a game he will bring it, especially as Wilfork needs more rest later in his career.
