    Note, I put the 23rd to 32nd pick the writer posted on his mock draft. I see the Cowboys picking in that range somewhere, and possibly maybe trading up if cowboys pick 30th to 32nd to get another impact player like when cowboys traded up to get Dez.

    23. Philadelphia Eagles: *Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State
    The Eagles take a value pick in Worthy -- a rising star to watch -- adding more strength and quickness to their defensive line, a constant area of focus for team management.
    24. Cleveland Browns: (from Atlanta): Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
    The Browns took six picks from Atlanta instead of drafting Julio Jones this year, but why not take a chance on a potential West Coast offense playmaker like Floyd for QB Colt McCoy here, despite his off-field issues and average speed?
    25. Indianapolis Colts: Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia
    Talented but rail-thin corner and the son of former NFL star corner Frank. The Colts don't much care about size in their cornerbacks, so they'll leap at the chance to pick Minnifield because of his coverage and ball skills.
    26. Dallas Cowboys *Robert Lester, FS, Alabama
    Dallas might still be looking for a free safety next April, and Lester's height, speed and ability to find the ball in the air should strike owner Jerry Jones as a high-impact pick at a typically low-priority position in the first round.

    27. Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Lindsey, DE/OLB, Pittsburgh
    Terrell Suggs is getting older and the Ravens can always use explosive linebackers in their 3-4 scheme. Lindsey could be yet another 4-3 college end transitioning to the rush 'backer spot for a 3-4 NFL team.
    28. New England Patriots: Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska
    Crick didn't put up great stats without Ndamukong Suh around in 2010, but he is still a high-motor, strong five-technique prospect the Patriots would love to see available to them at this pick.

    29. New England Patriots (from New Orleans): Jeff Fuller, WR, Texas A&M
    Fuller's value as a big-bodied receiver able to make plays downfield despite average speed will be too much for Bill Belichick to ignore--although the likelihood of him keeping both these late first-round picks is nearly zero.
    30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kelechi Osemele, OG/OT, Iowa State
    Osmele has the build Pittsburgh looks for in its offensive linemen, and the revolving door of talent up front means the Steelers could be looking to upgrade there again.
    31. Green Bay Packers: Courtney Upshaw, ILB, Alabama
    General manager Ted Thompson has a habit of picking the best player on the board, and Upshaw's ability to play inside or outside in the teams' 3-4 scheme would be a great fit.
    32. New York Jets: Bruce Irvin, DE/OLB, West Virginia
    Rex Ryan did not address the linebacker position early in the 2011 draft, and Irvin is just getting on the NFL radar as a pass rusher who has a chance to prove himself an all-around player in 2011.
