12. San Diego Chargers (12-4)
Troy Williamson* | WR | South Carolina
The Chargers would consider drafting a pass rusher or Barron if he fell to them at No. 12. However, upgrading their wide receiver situation is just as pressing and Williamson gives them the best value with the first of two first-round picks. Williamson is a player on the rise after running in the 4.3's at the combine. He has the size, long arms, hands and explosive speed to quickly develop into a deep threat in the NFL.
15. Kansas City Chiefs (7-9)
Marcus Spears | DE | LSU
If the deal for DC Patrick Surtain (Dolphins) goes through as expected, addressing the defensive end position must become the Chiefs' first-round focus. The Chiefs have a decent starting combo at DE in Jared Allen and Eric Hicks, but they really are missing depth and size at the position. Spears would be a good fit, as he is a "tweener" DE/DT who could really make an impact as an interior pass rusher and play in a rotation that would give Allen and Hicks a breather while beefing up the line on first and second downs. Spears is currently rehabilitating an ACL injury he suffered while training for the combine, but he is expected to make a full recovery by early April. If he can run well (in the 4.8 range), Spears should land in the 10-20 range of the first round.
25. Denver Broncos (10-6)
Marlin Jackson | DC | Michigan
After making several additions to their defensive front seven during the offseason, the Broncos seem less likely to use this pick on a linebacker or defensive lineman than they did just a couple months ago. The team also solidified its tight end position, which means their top needs now lie in the defensive secondary. If Davis were available he might be the pick. In this scenario, Jackson is a good value at a position of need. Jackson doesn't have blazing speed but he's an excellent athlete with the size and confidence to quickly develop into a starter in the NFL. By drafting a cornerback here it would allow the Broncos to move Lenny Walls back to the nickel and dime packages, which is where he belongs.
28. San Diego Chargers (12-4)
Dan Cody | DE | Oklahoma
The Chargers were tied for the third fewest sacks in the league (29) in 2004, which helps to explain why they need to use one of their two first-round picks on a pass rusher. Cody has the athleticism, speed and instincts to step in as a rookie and immediately make an impact.
38. Oakland Raiders (5-11)
Odell Thurman* | ILB | Georgia
39. Chicago Bears (5-11)
David Baas | OG/OC | Michigan
The Bears are in search for a guard that can push Roberta Garza and/or eventually take over for the aging Reuben Brown. Baas, who played guard and center in college, is a good candidate to fill that need early in the second round.
46. Kansas City Chiefs (7-9)
Justin Miller* | DC | Clemson
Trading for Surtain will help but the team still needs youth and depth. Miller also can contribute in the return game.
56. Denver Broncos (10-6)
Chris Henry* | WR | West Virginia
Character issues are a major factor but Henry has first round physical tools and Denver has enough veteran leadership to take a chance on him.
It wouldn't let me post it all.
