3. Atlanta, Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU. Dorsey's workouts eased a lot of minds about his injuries.
4. Oakland, Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC. The Raiders have been spending like crazy this offseason, but there is still a need at defensive tackle. Former USC assistant Lane Kiffin knows all about Ellis.
5. Kansas City, Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College. When your quarterbacks are Brodie Croyle and Damon Huard, that position is an obvious need. Offfensive line is as well, but the Chiefs have to grab the QB.
7. New England, Vernon Gholston, DE/OLB, Ohio State. Bill Belichick loves players with position flexibility. Gholston fits the bill.
9. Cincinnati, Keith Rivers, LB, USC. The Bengals would have loved Ellis to fall to them, but settle for a stud linebacker.
11. Buffalo, Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida. Buffalo had just 26 sacks last season. Harvey will help the pass rush.
13. Carolina, Branden Albert, G/OT, Virginia. The Panthers snap up the player the Steelers would really love to have.
14. Chicago, Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh The Bears need to upgrade the offensive line and Otah could be plugged in at right tackle as a road grader.
16. Arizona, Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy. It looks like Antrelle Rolle is moving to free safety full time.
18. Houston, Kenny Phillips, FS, Miami (Fla.). The Texans had an NFL-worst 11 interceptions last season. He didn't run well at the combine, but he's a playmaker.
21. Washington, Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan State. New head coach Jim Zorn will be looking for a big receiver to match with Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El once the top defensive ends are off the board.
23. Pittsburgh, Quentin Groves, OLB, Auburn. Groves will play immediately as a situational pass rusher even though the Steelers took linebackers with their first two picks last year. Gosder Cherlius is a possibility, but the Steelers stay true to their board and take the best player available.
24. Tennessee, Kentwan Balmer, DT, North Carolina. The Titans lost a lot on their defensive front this offseason and Jeff Fisher's teams are always strong up front.
26. Jacksonville, Calais Campbell, DE, Miami (Fla.). It's hard to believe considering how the Jags' defense played against the Steelers, but they need help on the defensive line.
27. San Diego, Gosder Cherlius, OT, Boston College. Cherlius will be expected to step into the lineup in place of Shane Olivea.
28. Dallas, Aquib Talib, CB, Kansas. Dallas could have gone corner with its first pick, but the value is here now.
31. N.Y. Giants, Reggie Smith, DB, Oklahoma. Smith could play corner or safety and the Giants need help at both spots.
