33. (2.1) HOU: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois
First year head coach Bill O'Brien will be calling the offensive plays and needs to upgrade under center. Matt Schaub was traded to Oakland and Case Keenum is a gunslinger best served to be a backup. Garropolo's strengths include a quick release and strong arm but many question his inferior competition and inability to excel under pressure. The senior (6'2, 220) threw for 5,050 yards (66% completion) with 53 touchdown passes and nine interceptions in 2013. Concerns with his footwork and lower tier competition will make likely result in a slide to rounds 2/3.
34. (2.2) WAS: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
New coach Jay Gruden will likely try to employ a power-based run game similar to the one he ran in Cincinnati. Signing RG Shawn Lauvao to a $17 million deal should help but this Oline needs to get bigger and better. RT Tyler Polumbus and Guard Chris Chester might lack the size to excel under the new system.Moses is a solid run blocker but needs to add strength to excel at the LT position. He currently projects best as a RT / OG.
35. (2.3) CLE: Jeremiah Attaochu, LB, Georgia Tech
D'Qwell Jackson was released and Craig Robertson struggled mightily in 2013. The Karlos Dansby signing will help but LB depth is needed.In 2013, Attaochu collected 12.5 sacks and 45 tackles with 16 tackles for a loss. He is a good speed rusher but is best suited to play outside linebacker at the next level based on his size (6-3, 250).
36. (2.4) OAK: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE ,Washington
TE Mychal Rivera is undersized and a mediocre backup at best. Free-agent acquisition James Jones paired with Rod Streater and Denarious Moore is serviceable but this offense needs to add multiple pass catching playmakers via the draft.Seferian-Jenkins had 36 receptions for 450 yards and eight scores in 2013. In 2012, theĀ  sophomore caught 69 passes for 852 yards and seven touchdowns.
37. (2.5) ATL: Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame
Osi Umenyiora was serviceable replacing John Abraham, but Atlanta needs to upgrade its pass rush (just 32 sacks in 2013).In 2013, the junior ND alum totaled 49 tackles with nine tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks, and one forced fumble. At 6'6, 320 pounds he has the versatility to play DE/DT at the next level.
38. (2.6) TB: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
Carl Nicks battled a staph infection and could be a cap casualty. Pro Football Focus gave negative 2013 grades to RG Davin Joseph, C Jeremy Zuttah, and LG Jamon Meredith.Kouandjio displayed questionable footwork at quickness at the combine and just mediocre strength (21 reps on benchpress). His medical history (arthritic knee) and suffered torn ACL his freshamn year are also a major red flag.
39. (2.7) JAX: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State
Justin Blackmon is always a suspension waiting to happen. Ace Sanders showed flashes but adding talent opposite Cecil Shorts would help improve the Jags anemic offense (22nd ranked passing game).Travis Benjamin's status is also in limbo after he tore his right ACL in October.
40. (2.8) MIN: Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois
Harrison Smith missed most of 2013 with a turf toe but should be fine for the start of 2014. Upgrading from strong safety Jamarca Stanford is the real issue. First year head coach Mike Zimmer will be looking to add some hard hitters in the secondary to improve Minnesota's 31st ranked pass defense.The semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award last season (nation's top defensive back) is so skilled in coverage that he often lined up in the slot (versatility to line up over receivers or tight ends near the line of scrimmage).
41. (2.9) BUF: Joel Bitonio, OT/G, Nevada
The loss of Andy Levitre last season resulted in major problems as Colin Brown and Doug Legursky struggled at left guard.An impressive combine has vaulted the 6-4, 305 pounder into the first round discussion. In 2012, the junior paved the way for the nation's second-leading rusher in Stefphon Jefferson.
42. (2.10) TEN: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State
CJ2K is now with the NY Jets. Shonn Greene is left as Tennessee's only RB. Whisenhunt will likely pursue a power back early in the draft.Despite a 3-game suspension to start the season, the bruising back (5-11, 230 pounds) averaged 7.3 yards per carry and finished with 1,521 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also had 16 receptions for 147 yards and three receiving touchdowns.
43. (2.11) NYG: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech
Brandon Myers was a 2013 bust as a free-agent and signed with Tampa this offseason. Hakeem Nicks bolted for Indy so the G-men need to add a difference making pass catcher to take the heat off of Victor Cruz.The 6-5, 265 pound junior had a monster 2013 finishing with 106 receptions for 1,352 yards with seven touchdowns. He lacks top end speed (4.7 forty) and some question his block ability but he is labeled as a solid route runner with reliable hands.
44. (2.12) STL: Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana
The Kenny Britt signing should not deter St Louis from upgrading their anemic WR corps. Rookie Tavon Austin showed flashes but needs help.One of the hotter names as the draft approaches as ESPN's Todd McShay mentioned Latimer as a potential first round dark horse. In 2013, he hauled in 72 receptions for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns. As a sophomore, Latimer had 51 receptions for 805 yards with six scores.
45. (2.13) DET: Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State
DE Willie Young signed with Chicago and depth is needed.In 2013, the 6'4, 260 pounder recorded 47 tackles with 19 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.
46. (2.14) PIT: Dominique Easley, DT, Florida
DE/DT Ziggy Hood struggled in 2013 and signed with Jacksonville. Easley suffered is second torn ACL (one in each knee) last September, but is considered to be a first round talent despite the medical concerns.
47. (2.15) DAL: Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State
Safeties must have range to play deep in new DC Rod Marinelli's Tampa 2 scheme. Current starters Barry Church and Jeff Heath are backup material. J.J. Wilcox (2013 third-round pick) held his own against the run but was a liability in pass coverage.Bucannon is a solid tackler and was a turnover machine, with 15 interceptions and six forced fumbles in his college career. He could use some work in pass coverage but a solid combine has his stock on the rise. He posted the second fastest forty time amongst safeties (4.49) and his 19 bench reps finished third at the position. He was also second in the broad jump (125 inches), and third in the vertical leap (36.5 inches) and 3-cone (6.96 seconds).
48. (2.16) BAL: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU
Courtney Upshaw has struggled and Baltimore could look to add depth behind Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil. In 2013, the senior recorded 68 tackles with 17.5 tackles for a loss, four sacks, seven passes batted and two interceptions. He excels in pass coverage and is explosive off the edge. In 2012, Van Noy ranked among the nation's leaders in sacks (13).
