DANNY WEBSTER, SPORTS EDITOR

21) Green Bay Packers:
Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State

The Packers could always use defense. They can use someone opposite Clay Matthews, and Shazier is fast off the line. He may not have the size, but he’s very smart.

22) Philadelphia Eagles:
Marqise Lee, WR, USC

Desean Jackson is gone, and Chip Kelly could always use another Pac-12 player. Lee may be one of the better route runners in this draft and he does a great job after the catch.

23) Kansas City Chiefs:
Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana

The Chiefs could use another wideout, and Latimer is a big target and great after the catch. He’d be great for Alex Smith in an offense that desperately needs a receiver.

24) Cincinnati Bengals:
Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

Lewan has had character issues. The Bengals don’t need Lewan, but Marvin Lewis knows a thing or two about getting the best out of troubled players.

25) San Diego Chargers:
Kyle Fuller, DB, Virginia Tech

Cornerback is a deep position, and Fuller is another one considered the best in the class. Plays physical at the line, and he would be great to an improving San Diego defense.

26) Cleveland Browns:
Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

Johnny Manziel could use some more targets if the Browns take him at No. 4. Why not the playmaker Adams? He has a chance to be great, unlike his college quarterback.

27) New Orleans Saints:
Dee Ford, DE, Auburn

There are questions about Ford’s durability, but when he’s on the field, he’s as good as any defensive end in this draft. The Saints need someone to replace Will Smith.

28) Carolina Panthers:
Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

I have a problem with Vanderbilt players who play well, but Matthews is not Jay Cutler. Carolina needs someone for Cam Newton to throw to after losing all of their wide receivers.

29) New England Patriots:
Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

Vince Wilfork is getting older, and defensive line is the only weakness in that revamped New England defense. Hageman is a big body who can play end or tackle in a 3-4.

30) San Francisco 49ers:
Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

The 49ers could either go with a slot receiver or a defensive end, but Cooks is a perfect fit. As long as he’s not yelling bomb threats in an airport, Cooks should fit in fine.

31) Denver Broncos:
Joel Bitonio, OT, Nevada-Reno

The Broncos moved Orlando Franklin to guard, so there’s a spot to be had. Bitonio can play either side of the line, and can achieve the No. 1 goal: Keep Peyton Manning upright.

32) Seattle Seahawks:
Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State

If Cris Carter was the GM of the champs, he’d make sure Seattle got one. Robinson is another great receiver in this loaded class, and Russell Wilson will be glad to throw him the ball.

21) Green Bay Packers:
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington

With the exit of Jermichael Finley, the Packers are in need of a tight end. Seferian-Jenkins is a massive target with an outstanding catching radius and good route running.

22) Philadelphia Eagles:
Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State

The Eagles lacked a consistent pass rush, and will need one to maintain a lead if they score as many points as they plan. Shazier is a true sideline-to-sideline linebacker.

23) Kansas City Chiefs:
Marqise Lee, WR, USC

Kansas City’s passing offense is in desperate need of a playmaker, and they need to get one here since they don’t have a second round pick. Lee could start from day one.

24) Cincinnati Bengals:
Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame

The Bengals aren’t in terrible shape up front, but Martin would be a steal at 24. He has the versatility to play both tackle and guard, which will help him find a starting spot on the line.

25) San Diego Chargers:
Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame

Nix isn’t the best available defensive tackle on the board, but he’s one of the biggest. Nose tackles that can plug up the middle are hard to find.

26) Cleveland Browns:
Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

Johnny Manziel goes at No. 4, so they get him another target. Cooks is a burner and would make Cleveland’s offense deadly along with Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon.

27) New Orleans Saints:
Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana

Darren Sproles and Lance Moore’s departure leaves the New Orleans with few options in the passing game. Latimer has a big frame, and really knows how to high-point the ball.

28) Carolina Panthers:
Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

Carolina makes it three straight receivers off the board by taking the Bulldogs’ standout. Adams has big-play ability, and will be a plus to the worst receiving core in the league.

29) New England Patriots:
Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

If Vince Wilfork stays healthy, this isn’t a need, but Hageman would be a great safety net at defensive tackle. Hageman played in all 38 games in the last three years.

30) San Francisco 49ers:
Bradley Roby, DB, Ohio State

Cornerback was already a concern for San Francisco, and is now a desperate need without Carlos Rodgers. Roby will benefit from having one of the best front-sevens in football.

31) Denver Broncos:
Jason Verrett, DB, TCU

The signing of Aqib Talib fills the void left by Champ Bailey, but Denver still needs help. Verrett may have the highest upside of any corner, and wouldn’t have to start right away.

32) Seattle Seahawks:
Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

Free Agency took its toll on the Seahawks’ defensive line, and Pete Carroll puts a major emphasis on it. Ealy is the type of player Seattle has targeted under Carroll.

21) Green Bay Packers:
Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois

Ward played in a “Non-BCS” conference, but the kid can play. With a depleted defense, the Packers need someone who can fit alongside Sam Shields.

22) Philadelphia Eagles:
Marqise Lee, WR, USC

With the departure of Desean Jackson, the Eagles need to fill their big-play void. Lee is just what Chip Kelly needs in an already explosive offense.

23) Kansas City Chiefs:
Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

Alex Smith’s not a real quarterback, according to most people. But the Chiefs passed for 363 yards/game last year with a mediocre receiving core. Cooks would be welcomed.

24) Cincinnati Bengals:
Jason Verrett, DB, TCU

Verrett battled injuries his entire senior year, yet still earned Co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors. A tad undersized at corner, Verrett shut down virtually every receiver he faced in the Big 12.

25) San Diego Chargers:
Kyle Fuller, DB, Virginia Tech

The steal of the draft. Fuller is a prototypical “shut-down” cornerback. For him to fall into the Chargers lap would be a blessing at 25. San Diego needs to tighten that defense up.

26) Cleveland Browns:
Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

The Browns are known for making terrible decisions when it comes to quarterbacks, and so here’s another one.

27) New Orleans Saints:
Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

I can’t think of a better receiver for the Saints’ system. Adams is explosive and provides a deep threat. Drew Brees will throw for even more yards if that’s even possible.

28) Carolina Panthers:
Odell Beckham, WR, LSU

The Panthers parted ways with every receiver they had. Cam Newton is going to need help if Carolina wants to contend again this year, and Beckham is a good pick.

29) New England Patriots:
Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

The Pats have rebuilt their defense and it’s starting to look scary. The last piece of the puzzle is a defensive end opposite Chandler Jones and that’s where Ealy comes in.

30) San Francisco 49ers:
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State

The 49ers have everything a team needs. They could use another offensive weapon and I like Benjamin here. Benjamin is a 6-foot-5, 240-pound wide-out who can catch anything.

31) Denver Broncos:
Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

Matthews set almost every receiving record at Vandy as well as in the SEC and, although the Broncos may need help on defense, the offense put up eight points in the Super Bowl.

32) Seattle Seahawks:
Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

Just what the Seahawks need: more defense. If there was a chink in the armor last season for this defense it was at defensive tackle. Seattle’s two defensive ends are set, but Hageman adds more power.
