    With the 20th pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select...

    20. Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The Bucs have a bunch of castoffs at defensive end and needed to upgrade their pass rush. Clayborn was restricted in college by the Erb's Palsy in his shoulder and cannot play left- or right-handed the way he needs to at any position but right defensive end, where he figures to plug in immediately as a starter. He has the size and power to leverage the edge and collapse the corner and could prove worth the medical risk late in the first round. >

    21. Phil Taylor, DT, Baylor

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: With the Chiefs set to select Taylor and fill their glaring need at nose tackle, the Browns swapped picks, filling the void left by the departure of Shaun Rogers. The Browns have a glaring deficiency inside Dick Jauron's new 4-3 front and Taylor could man the fort. He graded out like a third-round pick on tape but players with his mass and movement skills are difficult to find. >

    22. Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The Colts' offensive line faltered last season and made Peyton Manning's job as challenging as ever. Castonzo can plug in at left tackle and protect Manning's blind side from Day 1. He's a smart, versatile, technically sound pass protector who could stand to improve his core base strength. >

    With the 23rd pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select...

    23. Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The Eagles struggled mightily along the interior offensive line a year ago when injuries depleted their depth. Watkins has the athleticism, foot quickness and strength to play anywhere on the line. He lined up at left tackle in college but projects to guard for the Eagles. Offensive line coach Howard Mudd is one of the best in the league at developing raw talent and could work wonders with the 27-year-old former firefighter. >

    24. Cameron Jordan, DE, California

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The Saints are old at defensive end and need an infusion of youth. Jordan can be plugged in readily as a base left end and even kick inside to rush the passer on nickel situations. The Saints recognized the value on the board and made a solid pick, given his intelligence, pedigree and versatility. >

    25. James Carpenter, OT, Alabama

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The offensive line struggled to find a consistent starting combination last year and regularly battled injuries. Carpenter projects to the right side where he will play opposite Russell Okung. He has the raw physical talent to have been considered in the top 50 but might need time to adjust. Has been a durable, solid starter throughout his career. >

    26. Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The Chiefs needed a vertical threat who can take the top off a defense, taking a chance on Baldwin to fill that role. He has shown big-play ability and possesses first-round measurables. However, his tape was inconsistent and he will need to mature to become a solid pro. Having a taskmaster coach in Todd Haley could help accelerate Baldwin's learning curve. >

    Round Two of the 2011 NFL Draft

    33. New England Patriots (from Carolina Panthers), Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: He went a pick before Chris Cook did a year ago to the Vikings, and Dowling stood out a year ago more than Cook did on tape. He could've been a first-rounder had he stayed healthy. A big concern in the pros is whether he can stay healthy, but if he does, he has the length and ball skills to match up with big receivers and fits very well in the Pats' defense.

    34. Buffalo Bills, Aaron Williams, CB, Texas

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: Chan Gailey knows how to make the offense work and can get by with a smart system quarterback like Ryan Fitzpatrick. What the Bills needed most to address was their defense and they've done that with their first two picks. Injuries depleted depth at CB last season and the Bills stand to lose Donte Whitner in free agency. With Williams, the Bills now have a versatile cover man who can help in the slot and should make an immediate impact.

    35. Cincinnati Bengals, Andy Dalton, QB, TCU

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: With the uncertainty surrounding Carson Palmer's trade demands, the Bengals needed insurance at QB. Dalton perfectly fits Jay Gruden's offense ? he's a very smart, quick-triggered West Coast passer who could give the Bengals an entirely new offensive look combining with WR A.J. Green. He lacks great arm strength and physical stature but he should learn Gruden's offense very quickly and could be baptized by fire.

    36. San Francisco 49ers(from Denver Broncos), Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: Kaepernick, a four-year starter, has one of the strongest arms in the draft. He's extremely driven, motivated and determined to succeed although he's still raw coming from a pistol-shotgun offense. He has all the physical tools to become an NFL starter in time and will benefit greatly from the tutelage of Jim Harbaugh. His intelligence and competitiveness could make him a star in the Bay Area, especially if he is given a year to develop.

    37. Cleveland Browns, Jabaal Sheard, DE, Pittsburgh

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The Browns' defensive line was their greatest area of need and they addressed it well with their first two picks, adding NT Phil Taylor and Sheard. He stood out as a senior and has great arm length, athletic ability and quickness. He played hurt most of the season and concerned some teams with an elbow injury that might require further surgery. However, he is very tough and has shown he will play with pain. Expect him to see immediate action.

    38. Arizona Cardinals, Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The Cardinals' ground game ranked last in the league last year, and Beanie Wells and Tim Hightower both have been disappointing. In Williams, the Cardinals get a very instinctive, hard-charging, highly competitive runner who brings the type of attitude that Ken Whisenhunt desires in his smash-mouth offense. Williams played through injuries last season and didn't produce up to his capabilities, otherwise he would have received looks in the first round.

    39. Tennessee Titans, Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: Ayers offers solid value at this spot. He played too undisciplined in college but he has the play-making ability to contend for a starting job right away. He could unseat Gerald McRath, making a living playing over the tight end.

    40. Dallas Cowboys, Bruce Carter, OLB, North Carolina

    Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki: The Cowboys recognized Carter's immense talent and have a loaded roster that makes it easier to take a chance on a player who may start the season on the physically unable to perform list. He's coming off a late-season ACL injury and couldn't work out before the draft. However, he could bring great dividends once he recovers. He's an excellent special-teams player and could fill a role as

    Round Three of the NFL Draft

    65. Carolina Panthers, Terrell McClain, DT, South Florida

    What he brings: McClain is an upfield penetrator with good quickness and hands as a pass-rusher. He needs to work on lowering his pad level and getting off blocks as a run defender, but should bring good depth as a situational one-gap player as a rookie.
    How he fits: Carolina used mostly backup-type players at this position last season and could lose some to free agency. For years the Panthers have lacked a powerful run stuffer inside with the ability to get penetration in pass-rushing situations. McClain won't be elite versus the run but he can be an inside penetrator and is a more gifted athlete than they have on the roster.

    66. Cincinnati Bengals, Dontay Moch, OLB, Nevada

    What he brings: Moch is a phenomenal athlete who runs in the 4.4 range in the 40, giving him great range, and he has a good motor. He'll transition to linebacker in the NFL,where he will need to develop instincts when forced to play in reverse in coverage. He has upside and showed progress at the East-West Shrine game, but he still has work to do in that area.
    How he fits: Moch likely will line up at the SLB, and although the Bengals like their outside guys, he adds depth and versatility, especially if they play Rey Maualuga inside. The Bengals need Moch to give them good run support versus good right-handed running offenses.

    67. Denver Broncos, Nate Irving, ILB, North Carolina State

    What he brings: Irving is instinctive and makes a quick diagnosis, showing a nose for the ball and above-average range. However, he is not a great athlete in terms of change-of-direction skills and could be a liability in coverage on occasion. Irving showed courage and mental toughness bouncing back from a near-fatal car accident two years ago and is not the same player he was before the accident.
    How he fits: The Broncos have struggled in the 3-4 scheme and under John Fox they will likely go back to a 4-3 look, which fits their personnel. They have a lot of bodies at MLB but their best guy, Mario Haggan, was forced to play outside when Elvis Dumervil went down. So the question is, will Haggan play inside or outside? If Irving can step in and assume the role inside, it gives them a lot of versatility.

    68. Buffalo Bills, Kelvin Sheppard, ILB, LSU

    What he brings: Sheppard is very instinctive and has a knack for finding the ball. He uses his above average diagnostic skills to get a jump on plays and is a reliable tackler with range just a notch below elite. He needs to play with better leverage taking on blocks but has the potential to become a solid starter in Buffalo's 3-4 scheme.
    How he fits: This was the worst run defense in the NFL a year ago, and the Bills are really trying to upgrade their size and power inside with DT Marcell Dareus in the first round and Sheppard in the third. The Bills have decent ILBs in their 3-4 defense, but Paul Posluszny is a free agent, though he says he wants to come back. However, this pick is great insurance if he doesn't.

    69. Arizona Cardinals, Robert Housler, TE, Florida Atlantic

    What he brings: Housler is a better athlete than football player at this point. He is a raw route-runner who needs polish in that area, especially making sharp breaks. However, he has excellent top-end speed and can stretch the deep seam to bring a big-play threat to the passing game.
    How he fits: This organization has ignored this position for years and they have virtually no playmakers with guys like Stephen Spach, Ben Patrick and young Jim Dray. Coach Ken Whisenhunt was a tight end, so why isn't this position better? Housler will bring them an H-back type pass-catcher who should really upgrade them on third down and in the red zone.

    70. Kansas City Chiefs (from Cleveland), Justin Houston, DE, Georgia

    What he brings: Houston has great size and physical tools and is a natural pass-rusher. He has above-average first-step quickness and ability to bend the edge. He needs to be a stronger competitor against the run and play with more authority, though. His

    No problem.

    [b]Fourth Round of the 2011 NFL Draft[/b]

    98. Carolina, Brandon Hogan, CB, West Virginia

    What he brings: Hogan is instinctive and has good short-area burst with above-average ball skills. There are concerns about his lack of top-end speed and off-field character issues.
    How he fits: One of the Panthers' starters, Richard Marshall will likely not be back and Chris Gamble underachieved in 2010 and he has a big contract, so he could also be gone. There is very little depth on a defense that doesn't have a great pass rush, they are forced to blitz a lot and leave their corners on an island, which requires man skills and Hogan should be decent in that situation.

    99. Seattle (from Denver through New England), K.J. Wright, OLB, Mississippi State

    What he brings: Wright has great size and strength to take on and disengage from blocks at the point of attack. He is a strong and reliable tackler but lacks instincts an can be a second late finding the ball at times.
    How he fits: He will add some depth to a linebacking corps that has underachieved a little bit, although this didn't look like a huge need. Aaron Curry has not played up to his draft status and David Hawthorne has been their most consistent guy. Wright could be a solid backup, probably at SLB and should contribute on special teams.

    100. Buffalo, Da'Norris Searcy, S, North Carolina

    What he brings: He has good size but is not as physical in run support as expected. He has adequate to good cover skills and also plays the ball well, and he also played the nickelback role at times in college.
    How he fits: Donte Whitner is a terrific starter for the Bills, but he wants big money and could easily leave in free agency. If that happens, they need a solid guy in the deep middle of the field and Searcy has enough production at CB to let you think he would be a good cover guy inside but he could also contribute at CB in nickel situations. This is an insurance pick.

    101. Cincinnati, Clint Boling, OG, Georgia

    What he brings: Boling played tackle in college but will kick inside to guard in the NFL, where he could be a Day 1 starter because of his awareness and above-average feet for an interior lineman.
    How he fits: Former first-rounder Andre Smith fights injuries and has not emerged at RT and there is not much depth behind him, however it is likely that the Bengals will move Boling inside and play him at guard as a swing guy and he actually has a bigger upside than this pick would indicate and it wouldn't be a stretch for him to compete for a starting spot.

    102. Cleveland, Jordan Cameron, TE, USC

    What he brings: Cameron is a former basketball player whose upside as a receiving option has yet to be translated to the football field, and he has to get stronger and tougher as a run blocker.
    How he fits: He is another target in the passing game for Colt McCoy after they took WR Greg Little in the second round. He can move around the formation and is a tough matchup because of his pass-catching ability. He should be effective on third down and in the red zone.

    103. Arizona, Sam Acho, DE, Texas

    What he brings: Acho has great intangibles, a high motor and experience rushing from a two-point stance. He did not come off the board earlier because he lacks elite burst off the edge.
    How he fits: Age and marginal production make veterans Joey Porter and Clark Haggans really expendable and the Cardinals got virtually no sack production off the edge from this duo. They desperately need a pass-rusher and Acho will make the transition from DE in college to 3-4 OLB, but to this point he's not a dynamic pass rusher.

    104. Tampa Bay (from Washington through Philadelphia), Luke Stocker, TE, Tennessee

    What he brings: Stocker is a three-down tight end and one of the better blockers in this tight end class. He doesn't excel in any one area but does a lot of things, though he is a limited athlete.
    How he fits: Kellen Winslow is a solid player but there is very little behind him. Backup John Gilmore is decent but he may leave via free agency and that really hinders the Bucs' ab>

    Fifth Round of the 2011 NFL Draft

    132. Carolina, Kealoha Pilares, WR, Hawaii

    A little bit of a reach here since he's coming off a knee injury and doesn't have great size or top end speed. On positive note, crafty route runner and isn't afraid to work the middle of the field.

    133. Buffalo, Johnny White, RB, North Carolina

    White doesn't have the breakaway speed of a C.J. Spiller, but he's a tough, between-the-tackles runner who can also contribute on third down as a pass blocker and a pass catcher.

    134. Cincinnati, Robert Sands, S, West Virginia

    There are concerns about Sands' ability to hold up in coverage, but he has shown the ability to make a play on the ball when he's in position. He can contribute as a situational run stopper and on special teams.

    135. Kansas City (from Denver through Tampa Bay), Ricky Stanzi, QB, Iowa

    There are concerns about Stanzi's decision making in the fourth quarter this year and his arm strength is just average, but he comes from a pro style offense and is accurate. His immediate goal is to compete with Brodie Croyle to backup Matt Cassel and without the pressure to start immediately, this is a good spot for him to develop his skills.

    136. Arizona, Anthony Sherman, FB, Connecticut

    Sherman is a hard-nosed lead blocker and reliable receiver. He doesn't have a lot of experience running the ball, but what sets him apart is he is an excellent special teams player (63 special teams tackles in college). It's obvious the Cardinals are trying to change the culture by adding to their run game in this draft.

    137. Cleveland, Buster Skrine, CB, Chattanooga

    He had some problems staying healthy in college and he doesn't offer much in run support at this point, but he has the speed and enough agility to develop into an effective sub-package corner for the Browns.

    138. New England (from Houston), Marcus Cannon, OT, TCU

    Cannon could prove to be a steal here. He was one of the bigger stories heading into this week because he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, but he's expected to make a full recovery. He graded out as a second-round pick on film. He's a versatile player who can line up at eigther guard or tackle and barring any setback, the Patriots have made another strong move to rebuild that offensive line (Matt Light is a free agent and it appears the Pats will have a hard time signing Logan Mankins).

    139. Minnesota, Brandon Burton, CB, Utah

    He doesn't have elite ball skills and doesn't show great burst out of his backpedal, but he's a good value here because of his size/speed blend and his willingness to play the run. He'll start as a sub-package defender, but has the ability to develop into a starter.

    140. Kansas City (from Detroit as a result of tampering charges), Gabe Miller, OLB, Oregon State

    Miller is a reach here because he doesn't have any elite physical tools, but he does have solid intangibles and was a team captain. Flashes the ability to get to the QB with effort.

    141. Green Bay (from San Fransico through Denver), D.J. Williams, TE, Arkansas

    He is an H-back prospect who doesn't have the frame to develop into a in-line blocker but he is a tough, downfield blocker who should make immediate contributions as a receiver. He is yet another threat in the Packers' passing game.

    142. Tennessee, Karl Klug, DE, Iowa

    He played at DT at Iowa and doesn't have a true fit in the NFL but he's a good pick here because he has a great motor, finds the ball and is a sound tackler. He gets the most out of his ability and is dependable.

    143. Dallas, Joshua Thomas, CB, Buffalo

    There are some durability concerns when it comes to Thomas and he doesn't have great ball skills, but he does have enough speed and fluidity to develop into a No. 2 CB in time. In the meantime, he could contribute in sub packages and on special teams.

    144. Houston (from Washington), Shiloh Keo, S, Idaho

    Keo makes up for his lack of ideal top-end speed with his instincts and positioning. Though he could take better pursuit angles at times, he is a willing run defender and powerful tackler. He will a

    Sixth Round of the 2011 NFL Draft

    166. Carolina, Lawrence Wilson, OLB, Connecticut

    Wilson is very instinctive with a wide range and a nose for the ball. However, he is undersized and has trouble taking on and disengaging from blocks.

    167. Cincinnati, Ryan Whalen, WR, Stanford

    He is a zone-busting WR who lacks quickness and fluidity to consistently separate form coverage at the next level. While he shows solid hands, he lacks elite body control to consistently pull in throws outside of his frame.

    168. Minnesota (from Denver through Cleveland), Demarcus Love, OT, Arkansas

    Love is an aggressive player who shows good inline power to get movement on defenders as a run blocker. However, he is a waist-bender and lacks lateral quickness which will probably force him to move from OT to OG.

    169. Buffalo, Chris White, ILB, Mississippi State

    He is at his best attacking the line of scrimmage, but is not a great read-and-react player and will likely play WILB in the Bills' 3-4 scheme. He's not a great cover guy but adequate in zone.

    170. Minnesota (from Cleveland), Mistral Raymond, S, South Florida

    Raymond is a hybrid who can play S and CB. He shows above-average athleticism and quickness to get a beat on the ball. Concerns with him are his lack of top-end speed and he needs to improve in run support.

    171. Arizona, Quan Sturdivant, ILB, North Carolina

    He displays good lateral movement, lateral quickness and above-average range against the run. However, he needs to get stronger at the point of attack because he can get engulfed by bigger blockers. In addition, he lacks elite instincts.

    172. Minnesota, Brandon Fusco, OC, Slippery Rock

    He has a good frame and natural strength at the point of attack. He also plays with aggressiveness and works to finish blocks. Concerns are he is a limited athlete and needs to play with more consistent pad level.

    173. Seattle (from Detroit), Byron Maxwell, CB, Clemson

    He is an instinctive, tough CB who shows above-average instincts and is a heavy special teams contributor as as a non-returner.

    174. Miami (from San Fransico through Green Bay), Charles Clay, FB, Tulsa

    He is more of an H-back type where he brings great versatility in the passing game. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll will need to be creative, but this can be a good pick for Miami.

    175. Tennessee, Byron Stingily, OT, Louisville

    He brings good length and solid frame to protect the edge in pass protection. He needs to work on playing with more consistent pad level as a run blocker.

    176. Dallas, Dwayne Harris, WR, East Carolina

    Harris is not a home run hitter but there?s a lot to like about his quickness, ball skills, competitiveness and toughness.

    177. Washington, Evan Royster, RB, Penn State

    Royster is an efficient runner with some upside on passing downs but he doesn?t have the power or speed to develop into a team?s primary ball carrier.

    178. Washington (from Houston), Aldrick Robinson, WR, Southern Methodist

    Robinson has very good ball skills and enough speed to contribute as a sub-package slot receiver in the NFL. He must, however, get bigger and stronger while also finding ways to contribute on special teams.

    179. Green Bay (from Miami), Caleb Schlauderaff, OG, Utah

    Schaluderaff has enough size and tenacity to become an effective reserve guard but his upside is limited by his minimal lateral mobility.

    180. Baltimore (from St. Louis), Tyrod Taylor, QB, Virginia Tech

    Taylor is an outstanding athlete. The question is whether he can improve enough as a passer to develop into a legitimate NFL quarterback.

    181. Oakland, Richard Gordon, TE, Miami (FL)

    He has the size, frame and speed to develop into a No. 2 TE. He should be used primarily as a blocker and has to show he can develop into a pass-catcher.

    182. San Francisco (from Jacksonville), Ronald Johnson, WR, USC

    Johnson has excellent speed and big-play potential, however, lack of body control and focus catching the ball could prevent him from ever maximizing his skill set.

    183. San Diego, Jordan Todman, RB, Connecticut

    Todman is undersized with a s

    Seventh Round of the 2011 NFL Draft

    204. Denver (from Carolina through Green Bay), Virgil Green, TE, Nevada

    Green's lack of size limits his potential a bit and he is still a work in progress as a route runner and blocker. However, Green is one of the fastest and most naturally athletic prospects in a weak TE/H-back class.

    205. Seattle (from Detroit), Lazarius Levingston, DE, LSU

    He is a one-gap wave reserve who flashes good strength, but is extremely limited as an athlete.

    206. Buffalo, Justin Rogers, CB, Richmond

    Rogers has marginal size and is limited with his overall tools, however , he possesses enough instincts and ball skills to potentially develop into an adequate sub-package reserve and special teams contributor.

    207. Cincinnati, Korey Lindsey, CB, Southern Illinois

    Lindsey doesn't have as much upside as some other corners in this class and making the transition to the NFL from Southern Illinois could prove difficult. However, he has enough tools to develop into an effective sub-package corner in time.

    208. NY Jets (from Arizona), Greg McElroy, QB, Alabama

    McElroy knows how to play the quarterback position and he has everything you look for in terms of character, football intelligence, toughness and competitiveness.

    209. Detroit (from Cleveland through Seattle), Johnny Culbreath, OT, South Carolina State

    He is an undersized OT who needs to add bulk to his frame and has raw tools. He is clearly a developmental project at this point.

    210. Atlanta (from Detroit), Andrew Jackson, OG, Fresno State

    Durability is a concern for Jackson and he has physical limitations, but he does have good size potential to go along with an outstanding combination of intelligence, awareness and toughness.

    211. San Francisco, Bruce Miller, DE, UCF

    Miller lacks elite size as a traditional DE but he possesses good athleticism to transition to a productive reserve and potential starter as an OLB in base 3-4 front.

    212. Tennessee, Zach Clayton, DT, Auburn

    He is a limited athlete who has excellent strength and power at the point of attack.

    213. Washington, Brandyn Thompson, CB, Boise State

    Thompson lacks elite size and top-end speed, however, he has good ball skills, short-area quickness and aggression in run support.

    214. Houston, Derek Newton, OT, Arkansas State

    He had a knee injury that limited his mobility a bit in 2010 but he has some athletic upside. He is very much a raw prospect at this point but he shows enough agility and toughness to develop into a versatile reserve role.

    215. Minnesota, De'Aundre Reed, DE, Arizona

    Reed is raw and needs refining in several areas. However, he has enough tools to become an adequate reserve as a LDE in the Vikings' 4-3 front.

    216. St. Louis, Mikail Baker, DB, Baylor

    The former WR who moved to DB in 2009, has significant durability concerns. He could contribute as a sub package defensive back and on special teams.

    217. Washington (from Miami), Maurice Hurt, OG, Florida

    Hurt is a limited athlete whose best fit will be at OG position at the next level. He has enough strength and tools to potentially add depth to an interior offensive line as a reserve.

    218. Green Bay (from Jacksonville through Miami), Ryan Taylor, TE, North Carolina

    Taylor doesn't have enough experience at TE due to injuries and because he played LB early in his career. However, he showed flashes as a good pass-catcher last year and will contribute on special teams.

    219. New England (from Oakland), Malcolm Williams, DB, TCU

    Williams is obviously a developmental prospect who brings versatility on special teams at the backend of the roster.

    220. Dallas (from San Diego), Shaun Chapas, FB, Georgia

    Chapas may not have elite power for a fullback but he is a tough lead blocker and between-the-tackles runner for his size. He also has the potential to develop into a reliable receiver and valuable special teams contributor.

    221. NY Giants, Da'Rel Scott, RB, Maryland

    Scott still needs development in terms of running with more consistent pad level and with a wider base. However, if he stays healthy he
