On The Clock: Picks 21 – 22

My mock draft continues today with the early exit playoff teams. On the clock are picks 21 – 22. To recap:

1. Carolina – Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
2. Denver – DaQuan Bowers, DE, Clemson
3. Buffalo – Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
4. Cincinnati – Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
5. Arizona – Von Miller, LB, Texas A&M
6. Cleveland – AJ Green, WR, Georgia
7. San Francisco – Robert Quinn, DE/LB, UNC
8. Tennessee – Nick Fairly, DT, Auburn
9. Dallas – Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama

19. New York Giants – Tyron Smith, OT, USC
20. Tampa Bay – Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa

With the twenty first pick in the NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select: Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois. The Chiefs are looking to add to their defensive front line, and Liuget fits the bill. Liuget is used to getting double teamed, and will anchor the Chief’s 3-4 defensive scheme.

With the twenty second pick in the NFL draft, the Indianapolis Colts select: Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin. The Colts need depth at a number of spots, and one is the offensive line. They address their need with the last of the premiere tackles in the draft.
