In picks 11-15 the Arizona Cardinals make the most surprising pick. see below picks 11-15.
11. KC: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
The Kansas Chiefs were supposed to be a playoff team this season and failed to meet expectations. Injuries to their starting Quarterback and to their Running back really hurt them. The Chiefs will use the draft to avoid situations where their offense is left stagnant. The Chiefs will select Running back Trent Richardson, Alabama. Richardson will be a steal for any team that picks him out of the top ten selections. Richardson is a running back with elite toughness and the ability to break of for huge gains. Imagine a one-two punch with Richardson and Charles in the backfield just sounds unfair. This is a great pick for the Chiefs if he falls this far.
12. SEA: Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
The Seahawks got rid of Aaron Curry this year and they need a linebacker who can carry the load of the team on his back. The Seahawks look to replace what they had with Tatupu and Curry with this year’s best tackle and field General, Inside Linebacker, Luke Kuechly, Boston College. Keuchly is solid inside linebacker who does all the right things and he can start from day one. The Seahawks need that man in the middle who the offenses must account for every play and Kuechly is a blue-chip prospect who fits a need for Seattle.
13. ARI: Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
The Arizona Cardinals have faced some tough years since they last went to the Super Bowl since Kurt Warner’s departure and need to change that. The Cardinals need to protect their Quarterbacks so that Kevin Kolb actually has time to throw the ball. The Cardinals offensive line needs help and they will draft Offensive Tackle Mike Adams, Ohio State. Adams definitely has the size to play in the NFL. He needs to work on his technique but he’s a need for the Cardinals who will place him at Left Tackle and if that doesn’t work he can play right.
14. DAL: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
The Cowboys secondary got torched all season and they need to upgrade because Terrance Newman isn’t getting the job done. The second best Cornerback in the draft will be their selection Cornerback, Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama. Kirkpatrick had a solid workout at Alabama’s pro day and solidified his position as a first round pick. Kirkpatrick’s skillset will grasp a lot of team’s attention because of his length and ability to guard bigger receivers.
15. PHI: Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
The Philadelphia Eagles were tabbed the NFL’s “Dream Team” last season and failed to meet those expectations. The Eagle’s need to address is the Linebacker position, if your team can’t tackle anyone then why play football? But with the top middle linebacker gone the Eagle’s will look to get push in their defensive line and go another direction. This selection shouldn’t take long for the Eagle’s to make. The Eagle’s will draft Defensive Tackle, Dontari Poe, Memphis. He’s a load of a man who had the strength and quickness to take on multiple blockers. A great pick at for the Eagle’s.
