49. (2.17) NYJ: Weston Richburg, OC, Colorado State
LG Brian Winters was a major liability in 2013. RG Willie Colon was resigned but depth is needed on the interior O-line. Richburg should be able to play Center or Guard at the NFL level and some consider him a possible late first rounder.
50. (2.18) MIA: Ja'Wuan James, OT, Tennessee
The Incognito-Martin debacle left this offensive line decimated. Miami allowed a league-high 58 sacks and protecting Ryan Tannehill must take priority this offseason. The Dolphins must overhaul their tackles and guards as LG Richie Incognito, RG John Jerry, LT Bryant McKinnie, and RT Tyson Clabo are all free agents.James is a tough run-blocker and a reliable pass-protector with above average athleticism for his size (6-6, 310). James had a mediocre Combine but posted an impressive 2013 which included holding Jadeveon Clowney without a sack.
51. (2.19) CHI: Demarcus Lawrence, OLB/DE, Boise State*
The Bears had major issues at linebacker in 2013 as Lance Briggs battled injuries while Jon Bostic (2nd round rookie) and strong side LB James Anderson struggled.The 6-foot-3, 245 pound pass rush specialist lacks the size to play DE at the next level (best suited for LB needy teams) but his scheme versatility is intriguing despite off the field issues (three one game suspensions).
52. (2.20) ARI: Jack Mewhort, OT, Ohio State
Arizona needs to upgrade the right side of the O-line in order to take head coach Bruce Arians vertical passing game to the next level. RG Earl Watford and RT Bobby Massie are the current starters and both have struggled. Mewhort was a three year starter at Ohio State and team captain. He played mostly LT in college but most experts view him as a better fit for RT in the pros.
53. (2.21) GB: Marcus Martin, C, USC
The Buccaneers signed C Evan Dietrich-Smith (one of the more versatile O-lineman on the Packer roster in 2013).Martin played LG for the Trojans in 2011 and 2012 and the junior moved to center for 2013. His athleticism and versatility makes him a solid day 2 value. He has the strength to help in the run game and solid footwork to hit blocks on the second level. His size (6-3, 320) should help him excel against interior D-lineman in the NFL.
54. (2.22) PHI: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt
Following the loss of DeSean Jackson (Washington), the Eagles need a game breaker to pair with Maclin, Riley Cooper, and Darren Sproles.Matthews posted 112 receptions for 1,477 yards with seven touchdowns in 2013. The senior turned in a faster forty than expected and is considered to be a solid route runner.
55. (2.23) CIN: Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida State
Top corner Leon Hall is recovering from his second Achilles' tendon tear in three seasons. LCB Terence Newman (soon to be 36) returns from a knee injury (missed final 4 games). Pacman Jones is mediocre at best and former first rounder Dre Kirkpatrick has struggled.Height is an issue as the 5'8 180 pounder might be best suited to play safety at the next level (or limited to slot CB duties). In 2013, he had 69 tackles with seven tackles for a loss, two interceptions, four passes broken up, three forced fumbles and 5.5 sacks.
56. (2.24) SF: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri*
Aldon Smith has proven to be a true knucklehead and the 49ers might look to find his replacement in the early rounds.Ealy recorded 9.5 sacks, 43 tackles, 14.5 tackles for a loss, three forced fumbles, six passes broken up and an interception in 2013. His forty time was slower than expected at the combine but he has the skills to be a true three down lineman.
57. (2.25) SD: Marcus Smith, DE/OLB, Louisville
Dwight Freeney struggled before landing on injured reserve in October.Smith was the leader of Louisville defense and was the American Conference Defensive Player of the Year. In 2013, he finished with 14.5 sacks (2nd in the nation) and had 42 tackles with 18.5 tackles for a loss, four forced fumbles and three passes broken up.
58. (2.26) NO: Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington
Mark Ingram's contract expires at the end of 2014. The former first round pick has missed 11 games during his first three seasons and has yet to top 160 carries or average over 50 YPG in any season. Pierre Thomas will be 30 years old at the end of the 2014 season.In 2013, the junior averaged 5.8 yards per carry and finished with 1,775 yards and 18 touchdowns. He added 25 receptions for 298 yards and another score. Sankey has shown excellent vision and cutting ability and is a well rounded back with solid receiving skills. Size might be a moderate conern for the 5-9, 210 pounder.
59. (2.27) IND: Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State
The Colts failed to land the Browns elite Center Alex Mack and will need to upgrade the interior O-line in order to successfully implement the power-running game that Chuck Pagano and OC Pep Hamilton favor. Upgrading from RG Mike McGlynn would be a step in the right direction.Jackson is a power run blocker that is likely best suited to play RG at the next level due to speed/athleticism limitations.
60. (2.28) CAR: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State*
Steve Smith (Baltimore), Ted Ginn (Arizona) and Brandon LaFell (New England) need to be replaced. Signing Tiquan Underwood, Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant are depth pieces at best.Derek Carr's top target had a monster sophomore season totaling 131 receptions for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns. At 6'2, 215 pounds he has the speed to get deep but some will question his ability to excel at the next level based on the inferior competition he faced for most of his collegiate career (struggled against USC in the Bowl game).
61. (2.29) SF: Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
Carlos Rogers struggled in the 2013 and signed with Oakland. Tarell Brown also inked with the Raiders.His combination of size (6-0 , 190) and speed (4.38 forty) has his draft stock on the rise. The senior recorded 36 tackles with four interceptions and nine passes broken up in 2013. In 2012, he had 33 tackles with 18 passes defended.
62. (2.30) NE: Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame
With Hernandez in a jail cell and Gronk rehabbing MCL and ACL tears, the Pats need to address the TE position - a staple of their offense.Niklas replaced Tyler Eifert (Bengals) as the starting TE in 2013 and caught 32 receptions for 498 yards with five touchdowns. He had just five receptions for 75 yards in 2012.
63. (2.31) DEN: Keith McGill, CB, Utah
New CB Aqib Talib is elite but injury prone (never played full 16-games). CB Chris Harris tore his ACL in January.In 2013, McGill notched 37 tackles with 12 passes broken up and an interception. McGill has great size (6'3, 210) and performed well at the combine (4.5 forty) which has his stock on the rise.
64. (2.32) SEA: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
Golden Tate signed with Detroit and Percy Harvin missed the majority of the 2013 season following hip surgery. Doug Baldwin also remains unsigned.In 2013, the Penn State junior  finished with 97 catches for 1,432 receiving yards . Robinson is labeled as a solid route runner but is not a speedster.  He was a semifinalist for the 2013 Biletnikoff Award and was named first-team All-Big Ten the past two seasons. In Penn State's eight Big Ten games in 2013, Robinson made 71 catches for 984 yards (123 ypg).
