Here is Part 2 of my mock which includes picks 11-20. There are some big names here and the “National Champs” (and I use that term loosely when referring to Alabama) are well represented.
11. Kansas City Chiefs
. Trent Richardson RB Alabama
. The Chiefs love to run the ball and Jamaal Charles is coming off an ACL injury.
12. Seattle Seahawks
. Quinton Coples DE North Carolina
. The Hawks need a QB, but there isn’t one left worth this spot. Upshaw will provide a much-needed pass rusher.
13. Arizona Cardinals
. Luke Kuechly LB Boston College
. The Cards need a playmaker in the middle, and Kuechly fits that mold perfectly.
14. Dallas Cowboys
. Dre Krikpatrick CB Alabama
. I’ve seen Kirkpatrick all over other mock drafts, but the Cowboys need a corner and they will take a chance on him despite his drug arrest.
15. Philadelphia Eagles
. Michael Floyd WR Notre Dame
. The Eagles are going to target a receiver, and Floyd would be a great addition to the offense
16. New York Jets
. Alshon Jeffery WR South Carolina
. Santonio Holmes is likely on his way out, so the Jets give Mark Sanchez a weapon.
18. San Diego Chargers
. Courtney Upshaw OLB Alabama
. Upshaw is a beast rushing the passer and is the best 3-4 rusher in this class.
19. Chicago Bears
. Mike Adams OT Ohio St.
. The Bears need to protect Jay Cutler, and with the top receivers gone they do just that with Adams.
20. Tennessee Titans
. Melvin Ingram DE South Carolina
. The Titans need a DE, and Ingram really helped his stock this season with 10 sacks despite dealing with injury.
